Meditative music from a gifted Italian guitarist.
Kawaski “KCentric” Nelson carves out a unique musical niche that fuses modern jazz, hip-hop, downbeat, and electronic instrumental styles of music.
As a native of Montgomery, Alabama he was raised on a healthy dose of blues, jazz, R&B, hip-hop, soul, and gospel music.
The same musical influences can still be heard in the music that he remixes and composes for himself and others.
Since his earliest days, he has frequently sought alternatives to the musical mainstream. He continues to push his artistic boundaries through music and various other creative mediums including song writing, media scoring, digital art, internet, television, video, and indie film projects.

John Halpin: Acoustic Guitar
The Reunion is one of today’s premiere instrumental acoustic bands.
Formed in 1991 by Todd R. Janko and Thomas Cacho, The Reunion was originally a blues band , but one day, things changed, and in 1996, The Reunion produced their first self-titled instrumental release: The Reunion. The songs from that release were built on two guitars and sprinkled with Spanish influences.
Playing in coffee shops and getting decent reviews, The Reunion made a name for itself. In 1994, they released The Reunion II. As their popularity grew, Cacho decided to pursue other endeavours, and John Halpin, one of Todd’s best friends, stepped in to put the finishing touches on the third release, Closure. In 2002, Closure reached number 24 on the American New Age Voice Charts.
The Reunion’s latest work, Consequences, is inspired by musical, spiritual, and emotional experiences from a recent three-year period. They strive to create music that people want and enjoy, “music that isn’t water downed, filled with sugar, or just plain fake.”
“A rare collection of unique instrumental passages that will surely soothe your mind and spirit.”

About Tommy Willis in his own words…
“Bunch of old demos I had from my years in the music bid’ness. My kids “discovered” me finally, and demanded I share my songs with the rest of the planet. I am not a singer – I consider myself a writer and guitar playing producer. I have had success with all 3. Started recording with Gary S. Paxton in Bakersfield in high school (1968), learned a lot of tricks on his old one inch 8 track. Played guitar with Andraé Crouch right out of high school, the Tonight Show – Carnegie Hall etc. Moved to Tennessee and made a living as a writer/producer for 12 years. Produced a double album on Porter Wagoner for indie label. Made the choice between career and family in 1988 – chose family – moved ‘home’ to Colorado. Just ended a battle with throat cancer. Now I’m waiting for the Lord to show me what He has for me next.”
Tommy, we hold you and your family in our prayers.
