Shambhu (pronounced 'SHOHM-boo') transforms stillness and silence into calming sounds. He's an acclaimed jazz guitarist and composer who the Marin Independent Journal called a consummate guitarist. Common Ground says, “Shambhu is at once precise, skilled, sensitive and inventive way beyond the norm.”
Shambhu worked with Grammy-winning record producer Will Ackerman on his 2010 debut release, Sacred Love, which reached #1 on the ZMR (Zone Music Reporter) New Age music chart. Shambhu's second album, Dreaming of Now, also produced with Ackerman, reached #2 on ZMR, and won Best Contemporary Instrumental Album at the ZMR Music Awards (2014). His third release, Soothe, reached #11 on ZMR and saw two songs move into rotation on Sirius XM.
His latest release, Lilac Skies, has been called acoustic six-string bliss....everything I enjoy in one nice package, seriously good musicianship, some cool jazz, blues, and just enough new age for a kick back and relaxing time, with a definitive groove. (New Age Music Reviews)
Shambhu is featured on Whitney Houston’s 'Whitney', Jeff Oster's 'Next, Ricochet – The Echoes Living Room Concerts (Vol 20)', two Will Ackerman compilations, 'The Gathering II', and 'The Gathering I' (ZMR Award for Best Album of the Year), 'The Guitar - The Best of New Age Reviews', and on Ann Licater's 'Doorway to a Dream'.
