Description

‘A Landscape Made From Dreams’ is the debut album from Swedish guitar maestro Daniel Palmqvist.  The music is a collection of 12 sonic tapestries that are diverse in styles yet combine to make a truly cohesive body of work guaranteed to appeal to non-guitar players as well as their stringed counterparts.

Palmqvist’s approach to the instrument is inspired by the likes of Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, Allan Holdsworth, Pat Metheny, Steve Lukather, Dan Huff and Kee Marcello, Daniel’s playing combines the technical proficiency of the above with a strong dose of melody to make his own unique voice.    On songwriting inspiration Daniel’s states, “For some of the songs I had a clear idea of a certain feeling or mood that I wanted to get across to the listener. On other songs I started out with a mental image, or as in one case, just a quote from a movie. Then sometimes I just get a melody or a riff in my head and go for it.”
