More than a fabulous performer and award-winning composer, listeners have called Gladius a miracle in the making -the guitarist has prevailed over a crippling case of nerve damage which greatly hindered the dexterity of both hands, and could have easily ended a musician’s career. Eleven years, four surgeries, 9000 hours of physical therapy, and countless prayers later, Gladius perseveres: relentlessly touring, recording, inspiring audiences of all ages, and winning numerous composition awards such as: Driven Creativity Competition (2013) and Music Composition Contest (2013), among others. Inspired by the great composers, Spanish guitar maestros, and much more, this musical mad scientist fuses the elements into a refreshing formula—evoking the Spanish spirit, yet distinctly unorthodox.
