Canadian composer-guitarist Paul Bezooyen has an extremely commercial sensibility that could be enticing to music libraries that service the film/tv industries. Whether it’s his “Open Road” with its warm, genial, instantly appealing hook, or “Another World” whose Spanish flamenco flair is simultaneously familiar and fresh, or “Fading Light” with its relaxing, peaceful, transportive soul, Beyoozen’s recordings (each one cleanly recorded and featuring the composer’s nimble, precise fretwork) glow with a quiet efficiency that makes them seem to be made-to-order for placements in video games, podcasts, and background-music situations.
