About Acoustic Alchemy
Known for their sophisticated instrumental sound, England's Acoustic Alchemy emerged in the 1980s playing a distinctive blend of jazz, classical, flamenco, and new age. Initially showcasing the talents of guitarists Nick Webb and Greg Carmichael, the duo gained a loyal following and chart success with albums like 1990's Grammy-nominated Reference Point, 1994's Against the Grain, and 1996's Arcanum. Since Webb's passing from cancer in 1998, Carmichael has led the group with guitarist Miles Gilderdale, issuing Top Ten Billboard jazz albums like 2000's The Beautiful Game, 2001's Grammy-nominated AArt, and 2011's Roseland, the latter of which marked the group's 30th anniversary. They again hit the jazz Top Ten with 2018's 33 1/3.
