Emilio Bonito, Lobster Review
Canadian guitarist and songwriter Emilio Bonito began his musical journey at the age of 4 by playing the piano. Bonito studied the piano for over a decade at the Royal Conservatory of Music, which also provided a solid musical foundation. At the age of 9, Bonito discovered the guitar and began his journey of musical exploration on it too. He has a wide musical pallet with most influences coming from avant-garde metal, progressive rock, indie folk, and psychedelic pop. Bonito’s guitar style incorporates fingerstyle guitar techniques and percussive effects. Bonito’s latest single, “Lobster” was recorded and produced by Michael Chambers (SØLYS/moon:and:6). “Lobster” is an interesting solo acoustic guitar composition that is built around Bonito’s signature percussive fingerstyle technique.
Release Date: March 8, 2019
The percussive fingerstyle technique Bonito uses gives energy and texture to the song. The mood is relaxing while still maintaining energy through the form.
