Canadian Guitarist Mike Milan Dedic has released a new rock instrumental single entitled “Energy.”
Joining Dedic is Drummer Brian Latimer and Keyboardist Dearian Seepersad.
“I am quite inspired by the world around me and thus draw my everyday experiences from it to incorporate into my music,” Dedic stated. “I try to invoke some sort of emotion out of my phrasings. Particularly with this song, I wanted the solo to have a ‘bounce and edge’ to it, thus the title ‘Energy’ came about. As with any of my prior rock Instrumental pieces, I hope it draws new fans to the genre. ‘Guitar Rock Instrumental’ music is quite a small market & can certainly benefit to an increased audience!”
Dedic, who grew up in the west end of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, started playing guitar at the age of 12 and is completely self-taught. While he said his influences are too numerous to mention, Dedic singled out main influences such as Uli Roth, Randy Rhodes, Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Blackmore, and Yngwie Malmsteen.
“As with all my recordings, I always revert back to using my ’75 Fender Strat,” Dedic shared. “It tends to bring out my playing more. I always try to keep a ‘natural’ sound to my tone. I really don’t use any effects. A little bit of EQ and reverb is just added when we mixed the song.”
