Guitar maestro, Jason Kui, has released the music video for his track Splash! - taken from his recent album, Naka. Splash! is just one of the songs inspired by his travels as a sought-after session musician that have shaped Naka and his broader musical journey. Naka was released onFebruary 14 and is available to order now. Watch the video for Splash! below.
Splash! contains slivers of inspiration taken from a cold, grey day in Iceland back in 2018, where a visit to a waterfall set Jason’s creative juices flowing. The video was directed and animated by Patrick Lawler, assisted by Gille Klabin.
The album title is a Japanese word meaning “in between”; Jason has applied the meaning of the word to his own life and work in the form of balance and contrast. The album straddles both heavy and melodic music, charting the desire for balance in his artistic, professional and personal life and absorbing Naka as a principle to live by.
Embracing elements of modern metal, hard rock - and of course, never shying away from a ballad - Jason showcases an extraordinary talent and understanding of his craft. Taking his cues from masters in the field such as John Petrucci and Andy Timmons, he has the ability to bring his distinctive guitar-led music to a new generation of fans
