Do you love real music?
We are clearly at a major turning point when it comes to the interface of artists and the people who like their music. Without your support, musicians and songwriters like myself would find it almost impossible to carry on the creative process. Traditionally, record labels, publishers and agents etc were the ‘middlemen’ in that process.
But for most of us those days are over. And that means that artists and fans are now working much more symbiotically. Fantastic!

Chanoyu Records is a new label created to release the music of UK guitarist/composer John Ellis. SLY GUITAR is the latest release by John. His work as a guitarist has been compared with artists such as Robert Fripp and Fred Frith. If you are interested in modern guitar music, this is the place for you. Copies of SLY GUITAR are now available from this site.
“The moody soloing on “Infanta” could easily have come off one of Andy Summers’ and Robert Fripp’s well-known collaborative albums, Bewitched and I Advance Masked from the early eighties. “Pedalo” would actually fit rather well on a late-period King Crimson album.” From a review by ‘Make your own taste’.
