A multi-instrumentalist including, guitar, drums, bass and keyboards, born in London, England (Great Britain), 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 - AK wanted a show that was unique and one that was from the heart, not a clone, nor a contrived act but simply a unique approach to the magic of the music of Pink Floyd. Fans who have 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 aptly called THE AK PROJECT. The first album 'Outside The Cage' has enjoyed both critical and commercial success..
The album entitled 'A Thunderous Exchange Of Silence' is available on iTunes:
