AK's story has a centerpiece that is defined and influenced by a love and respect for the music of Pink Floyd. After being exposed to rare recordings of Pink Floyd from the 70's, AK already a politically and socially-minded individual, was drawn to Floyd's groundbreaking work. AK turned this passion for Pink Floyd into his own vehicle of self-expression in 1993 with the formation of Comfortably Numb. Born out of a desire to put on a large scale, multi-media show and to satisfy a growing audience of Pink Floyd fans, the transition was a natural one. Fans who had heard AK perform described him as 'playing like David Gilmour and sounding like Roger Waters'. In addition to his work with Comfortably Numb, AK has a progressive rock act consisting of members of Comfortably Numb aptly called The AK Project. The first album 'Outside The Cage' has enjoyed both critical and commercial success and has been a featured album on influential indie music sites like garageband.com. A new album is slated for release 2013.
