Acoustic Oasis Is proud to present the music of Slovakian Mandolinist Jozef Scheiner. Jozef was born in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia where his father played the guitar, and his grandfather was a mandolinist. Jozef first picked up the mandolin at the age of 15, and soon formed his first bluegrass band.
However, it was David Grisman's music that influenced Jozef the most. Jozef began to compose his own instrumental pieces and when he was around 20, his band, the Grasshoppers, took part in a Mandolin competition held in the Czech Republic. They won the competition after playing Jozef's own compositions, of which the best known one is called Romale. He also studied classical mandolin in Italy. Since then, Jozef has explored various musical styles including newgrass, new acoustic music, modern country, rock, pop and jazz.
Jozef's latest release not only showcases his incredible musicianship, but also magically captures the rich, warm tones of great musicians playing great music.
