Tosin Abasi is surely the new guitar sensation that’s been going around right now. With his instrumental band Animals As Leaders he has released 2 records up ‘till now, succeeding in making a fuzz around his name. As the great Steve Vai said about him: ‘’When I first heard Animals As Leaders I felt as though I was at last hearing the future of creative, heavy virtuoso guitar playing. It’s quite amazing!’’

So, here is a great interview of Tosin by Berklee graduate Ivan Chopik that covers pretty much everything you can learn for him through an interview. Also, if you are not the “reading intereviews” type, there is also a video form of the interview included…Enjoy!
