Composer Kitt Wakeley thrives at the crossover point between classical and rock, and his forthcoming album, Sinners And Saints Vol. II, features an incredible line-up of virtuosic guitar talent. Now Guitar World is pleased present the world premiere of new single, Paganini’s Storm, featuring Nuno Bettencourt.
