What do you get when you cross a guitar with a firefly?

Justin Clarke. Ahem, make that Justin ‘Firefly’ Clarke.

He is an incredibly talented and versatile guitar (among other instruments) player, a composer, songwriter and a music instructor. And (as you will hear in our discussion in this episode of Kiwi by Proxy) a part-time anthropologist! (I love that he referred to himself as such. It’s fitting. ūüôā )

Justin and I chatted a few weeks back and we discussed how he decided to become¬†a musician,¬†his diversity in his method and style and his online guitar lessons (sign up, they’re great! You won’t regret it!)

Along with our discussion you will hear some of Justin’s own music.¬†Featured¬†are a song he wrote for the Woolshed Sessions collaboration¬†and¬†two¬†stunning instrumental compositions – both with a jazz structure but one¬†having an Indian influence¬†and the other¬†with a¬†Grecian feel.

Be sure to check out Justin’s MySpace guitar lessons page here.

And his regular MySpace page here.

Email him for information on online guitar lessons at firefly guitar at gmail dot com (without the spaces and a . instead of the word dot of course.)

Oh and one more thing before we get to the podcast, I love being back. I¬†am a little rusty at both “interviewing” and writing out my blog but it’s still wonderful to be back at it folks! I tell ya, ¬†I have missed doing the podcast, I have missed hearing new music, I have missed talking to great folks about their work, and I have missed being “Kiwi by Proxy” (although at this stage I don’t think I can ever really stop being that!)

It’s great to be back and what a way to come back from a very long absence than with a phenominal musician such as Justin Clarke.

And now …
