Prashant Aswani

Prashant Aswani was captivated by music at a young age. He began taking tabla lessons at the age of 8 years old, which helped him develop a strong sense of rhythm. By the time he was a teenager, his interests had migrated toward the guitar, and he had begun lessons. In his thirteenth year, he played in an area talent show, and dazzled his hometown audience with his original composition. Later, he was selected to play in his high school’s jazz ensemble, which he would stay in throughout his high school career. From high school, Aswani crossed the country to go to Boston’s distinguished Berklee College of Music. In his sophomore year, he was honored by the faculty at Berklee by being selected to play at the infamous “Guitar Night,” as one of seven of the best guitarists in the school. Later, he won the highly competitive Bay Area’s Best Guitarist competition. In 1995, he met Greg Howe and began taking lessons from him.

In 1998 and 1999, Prashant released his debut album in Europe and Japan, entitled Revelation. Produced by Greg Howe, the album received critical acclaim by guitarists and jazz fusionists everywhere. In the summer of 2000, he released another Howe-produced independent effort, entitled Duality. Prashant has also guitar duty with Howe on Howe’s latest released, Hyper Acuity, as well as some previous releases. Prashant keeps busy performing at guitar seminars, as well as endorsing products and giving interviews with guitar magazines worldwide.
