At Heriz Music: Burlingame, 94010
For guitarist, composer, and educator Felipe Gomez, the eight string hybrid guitar brings it all together. By using independent bass lines, slap percussive devices, and acoustic guitar tones, Felipe blends latin grooves with funk and blues elements that filter through his compositions in an original and very personal way. A committed educator for over 17 years, Felipe teaches guitar and bass at Heriz Music, and manages the music component at Cedars of Marin textile Art Center. Felipe has performed with numerous artists in the Bay Area. Among them, Tracy Sirota’s indie rock group with Grammy award winning arranger and producer Christian Tumalan. Felipe is currently a member of the Bay Area’s neo soul group Jade Velvet that is about to release their first Album. With many recordings under his belt, Felipe is working towards releasing his first full album with the eight string guitar, featuring original songs in collaboration with guest artists.
