About Demirkan

As a follow-up to his previous highly successful world-wide solo CD, Öfkem ve Ben, internationally renowned guitarist, composer, songwriter and singer Demir Demirkan releases his latest instrumental single, The Other Within.  Istanbul based Demirkan is one of a handful of guitarists in the world today that can legitimately lay claim to the often over-used and hyperbolic designation ‘guitar hero.’  Yet, contrary to many that have received this kind of high praise, Demirkan has the goods in abundance to back it up.  His emotionally driven improvisational prowess and technical virtuosity are outstanding in their conception and execution and this is amply demonstrated on his new single, The Other Within.
