Geoff is getting back to his guitar-hero roots with a cutting-edge guitar instrumental album with sounds ranging from blistering rhythm and solo performances, to production vibes that range from heavy rock, to 1980’s Brit-pop.
At 13 years old, Geoff started studying guitar with Joe Satriani, and refined his skills jamming with high school mates Alex Skolnick, Charlie Hunter, Jude Gold, and Joshua Redmond. Geoff is one of two students Satriani has said ‘Graduated’ from his lessons (the other being Steve Vai.) During one of his last lessons, Joe gave him a cassette of his then unreleased album “Surfing With The Alien” and Geoff knew Joe wouldn’t be teaching much longer.
“Guitar was my first love,” reflects Geoff. “I first met Joe Satriani when I was 13 and he
helped to develop my passion for playing guitar. I soon became one of his favourite students, along side Alex Skolnick, Steve Vai, Kirk Hammet and Charlie Hunter.”
“For my main instrument, I experimented with a variety of guitar brands, pickups, necks, and wood types. I eventually chose something that was definitely not a shredder guitar, but rather a hybrid that was a bit difficult to play. You can hear me struggling with the instrument on the recordings which I feel gives it a feeling of intensity. The rediscovery of the instrument was cathartic, and a big part of the artistic process.”
In 2003, Tyson created the band Stimulator with singer Susan Hyatt, and signed a record deal with Universal Music in 2005. Stimulator had songs featured in the Walt Disney Movie “Ella Enchanted”, MTV’s “The Real World”. Stimulator toured the world with Duran Duran, The Go-Go’s, and featured on Van’s Warped Tour.
