Bon, guitarist for Soften The Glare, just released his 4th solo album, “Traces Of Chaos”. It’s a mixed bag of guitar driven instrumentals featuring the likes of Kai Eckhardt (John McLaughlin), Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne), Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band) and Joel Cummins (Umphreys McGee).
Bon started out his journey playing in Pierre Moerlen's GONG, recording several albums with the band. Gong toured heavily in Europe and even hit the states. During this time period, Bon found time to produce two albums of acoustic guitar/ambient music with Percy Jones (Brand X), Pierre Moerlen, Bobby Thomas Jr. (Weather Report), and Gerald Veasley.
His last venture Tiny Boxes introduced him to the jamband arena where he began to guest with Umphreys McGee and moe. Tiny Boxes were a staple of the festivals in the jamband scene.
Coming full circle, he is now working on an album with old bandmates from the PM Gong era and working on a new album and band with Ryan Martinie under the name “Soften The Glare”.
