"Glenn Aitken - Gibson Guitar Centre Showcase"

"New Zealand born Glenn Aitken's musical champions include no less than Sir Paul McCartney - who has signed him to his publishing company MPL Communications - while Glenn's just-released debut album, Extraordinary Lives, has been produced by Grammy Award nominated John Ravenhall.

With those kind of names endorsing his talents, Glenn Aitken is certainly proving his musical credentials.A recent showcase gig at the Gibson Guitar Centre was virtually full to capacity and Aitken's powerful performance indicated that he is indeed a musical force to be taken seriously The Gibson gig will hopefully be the forerunner of many more by this musically thoughtful - and very talented - rock star of the future." - Chris White - Music Week
