Hoyt Binder

Hoyt Binder is a guitarist/songwriter who has a passion for deep music. Inspired by “The Creative,” he creates music for the sake of music.With influences ranging from 20th century composers to jazz, rock, pop and folk, he is a big fan of the progressive movement in the late 60′s when music was a very spiritual matter.

“The music here is pretty slick and well played incorporating a myriad of influences. In the end what my ears were left with was a mix of pop inflected proggy-ness that was intersected by plenty of jazz fusion. I was struck by the very polished L.A. sound created. Not really symphonic, this is progressive rock that relies on solid musical virtuosity.” (on Primitive Overflow)
