From the classical guitar strains of his youth at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama to his imaginative present day solo flights on YouTube to acclaimed guest spots with Polyphia, Plini, Andy James, Jason Richardson and others, Graham’s intense musical mastery has mesmerized many far and wide.
