Felix Martin
Felix Martin, an ambidextrous, Venezuelan-born guitarist who moved to America after winning a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee School of Music.
Felix is pushing music into new boundaries by mixing Metal with different styles such as Jazz, Progressive, World, Latin, Fusion, etc. Although his style is mostly called Progressive Metal, he is often cataloged as Jazz Metal, as he sometimes writes straight ahead Jazz mixed with Metal.
Felix uses his self-designed 14-string guitars, which are two regular guitars in one, standard guitar. Felix created a completely new way of playing the electric guitar by performing simultaneously with two of them as if was one guitar. This opens up a new and hidden world of the electric guitar. Felix pioneered this style of playing at the age of 13, and as of 2014, he remains the only one in the world who plays this way.
Felix and his band named under his name has shared the stage with acts such as Steve Vai, Mike Portnoy, Tesseract, Scale the Summit, Devin Townsend Project and have toured most of North America, South America and Europe.
DemiAura rose from the ashes of the 3rd Incarnation of the Progressive Rock/Metal Fusion band Organism. The Idea for Organism was the brainchild of drummer Keith Heaney that began in 1997.
Joining forces with guitarist Bobby Chavez of Born of Fire and keyboardist Jonathan Gabriel Jr. of Phoenix & Dragon in January of 2013, the idea was and has been to play many different styles within the context of one project. The two main elements were composed of being able to use dynamics smoothly like switching from clean to heavy passages seamlessly and convincingly and inject different styles without sounding as it were forced. DemiAura plans on taking diversity to new levels with everything from the Prog Rock/Metal songs to cleaner acoustic tracks to even soundtrack soundscapes.
