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'.
