THE STRING REVOLUTION

Based in Los Angeles, California, The String Revolution is comprised of four professional guitar players who are not only stellar guitarists, but also create distinctive sounds with their guitars: mimicking percussion, special effects, melodic grooves, bass lines, and more. Their knowledge of a wide range of musical styles, guitar techniques, and a clear dedication and passion for the project brought The String Revolution together. 

Janet Robin (recently named “Top 50 Acoustic Guitarist” by Guitar Player Magazine, 2017), acclaimed Austrian nylon-string guitarist Markus Illko, Swiss multi-credited producer, songwriter, & guitarist Daniel Schwarz, and underground LA fav indie artist/guitarist Art Zavala Jr. are at the top of their game, embarking on a new recording mixed and mastered by Grammy nominated Matt Hyde, known for his work with guitarists, Rodrigo y Gabriela.

The band has been selling out regional venues and house concerts and will soon embark on international touring. Their shows include original compositions as well as memorable covers arranged in fresh and surprising ways utilizing their expert guitar skills. With entertaining guitar chops, exceptional musicianship, and an international background, The String Revolution is no doubt a new and unique force in the world of music and guitar performance.
