"A truly gifted guitarist but foremost a first-class composer and musician" -Bridge Guitar
Guitarist Peter Ciluzzi transports listeners through virtuosic, evocative compositions that tell a story without words. With a distinctive, timeless sound that is both familiar and unexpected, his music defies easy categorization and reflects a wide range of influences including jazz, rock, classical, and world music. He has been featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine and his acclaimed solo instrumental work has accumulated millions of views on YouTube and more than 10 million plays on Spotify.
Raised in a small town in coastal Massachusetts, Ciluzzi developed an appreciation of the arts at a young age and took up guitar when he was a child. Mainly a self-taught musician, he has also studied jazz and improvisation as well as classical composition and has written a number of orchestral and electronic works in addition to his solo guitar recordings. A finalist in the Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, he has toured and performed throughout the US and shared the stage with the likes of Antoine Dufour, Calum Graham and Gareth Pearson. The broad nature of his musical interests also extends into guitar design and construction; having studied lutherie with Charles Fox, he started Ciluzzi Guitars in 2006 and has displayed at a number of exhibitions including the Montreal Guitar Show.
