JAKE PASHKIN " Gain Over "
( Self - released ) 2009.


Instrumental rock/fusion/progressive/metal

Out of city of Tyumen, Western Siberia, comes a guitarist and artist Jake ( Dimitriy ) Pashkin. A first musical steps he started as a child, firstly playing accordion, and later on ,he also received a piano lessons. At the age of 15 he started playing guitar, and practically in forthcoming period ( except one longest pause of four years ) he professionally worked with bands/artists, as a session musician, and in last and still actuelle part of carrear, as a solo performer. He also published his own poetry book in 2005, entitled "Acrobaty i Polgoda" ( Acrobats and Half Year ).
Till now Jake was released a 2 solo albums, firstly "Prequel" ( 2007 ), and still actuelle "Gain Over " ( 2009 ). Jake is skillful guitarist, and his interesting fields touches different areas as a rock/fusion/progressive/metal/art rock, and many things in - between. All of mentioned
elements are present in his performing and authors offering, and "Gain Over" as a album is full of mentioned stylish details. He has showed that as a person and performer posses "frantic" playing energy, and also is important to say, that psychologically his approach is nearer to one evident rock pastiche. I would add that maybe Satriani and his legacy could be a leading influental model for Jake, but in many album's places he has showed own authors and performing capabilities. "Gain Over" are consists of mostly equalizing materials/themes, and
productionally absolutely satisfies.
