It’s never easy to find a guitarist with the skill and background to play the diverse range of music in our catalog, but we’re very happy to announce that we’ve found the guy.  Introducing our new guitarist, Mathew Aboujaoude:

Currently studying guitar and songwriting at Berklee College of Music Online, Mathew started playing keyboards at the age of 7 and picked up the guitar at age 9.  For the past 4 years, he has toured extensively in Texas, Louisiana, and the Middle East with Brick Floyd, a Lebanese Pink Floyd tribute act.  Mathew has done session work with various artists in the US and abroad, and is currently recording an original solo progressive rock album to be released this year.

We’re looking forward to working with Mathew as we gear up for more live shows this fall and beyond.  Mathew will be making his live debut with us at our September 27 show at One 2 One Bar in Austin, so please be sure to come out and welcome him to the ACE family!

“If All Goes Wrong” is a turning point . . . the music is tighter and crisper as Aaron, Devin, and Tim each come into their own. The music runs the gambit; the album is as diverse a prog album as I’ve heard in quite some time. One of the upsides to the search for all things prog is discovering a band and following their journey to success.”
