Who: Bruce Mathiske
Author: Michael Gadd

GUITARIST Bruce Mathiske's latest instrumental release, On The Edge encompasses all styles and tempos, from the African rhythms of Gumboots to the finger-picking bluegrass of Fawcett St. The album was released on April 1 by the MRA Entertainment Group and is available from Beaumont Street Beat and ABC shops.

It has been two years since his last release and he says this one is his best.

'It seems as though I have worked my whole life to get to this point and this album', he said.

'There is a definite progression from my previous releases I Wish and Nightmare. 'An arrival if you like, of my own style.'

His unique swing version of Wizard of Oz classic Over The Rainbow is a pleasant surprise.
