Official press release:

Prosthetic Records is proud to announce the signing of Venezuelan guitarist Felix Martin. A graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Martin writes and performs an eclectic, exhilarating hybrid of instrumental prog-metal, jazz, fusion and world music on an instrument he invented himself – the 14-string guitar. His creation combines two left-handed 7-string guitars on one wide neck that allows him to play both guitars simultaneously, allowing for his unique system of 8-finger chords and slap-tapping techniques.

Martin commented on signing to Prosthetic Records by stating the following: "For me, the most important concepts in music (and life) are innovation and creativity. Prosthetic is one of the very few labels that works with artists who have unique visions of music, and who offer something different to the world. I can't be more thankful with Prosthetic for supporting my vision and letting me be myself."

Martin's Prosthetic debut, "Live in Boston," will be released across digital platforms on June 5th.
