My name is Alex Kriukov. I am an instrumental guitarist, playing many different kinds of music from rock to folk to classical to Spanish to Middle-Eastern to Eastern-European. Most of my music is acoustic as I love playing fingerstyle guitar parts that are influenced by classical, flamenco and folk guitarists. I also love to play rock and roll and blues on an electric guitar as well. I write music that is melodic and emotional.
Band/artist history
I started playing guitar at 14, took 2 years of guitar lessons while I lived in Toronto and started writing music while I was in univesity. My writing bug really hit me when I was living and working in Delaware in 1997-1999. I recorded my first CD under the tutelage of the great instrumental guitarist, Chris Dunnett in 2001, recording 10 songs and I recorded five more songs in 2003.

Anything else?
