Michael Gulezian is an American composer and fingerstyle guitarist. He is noted for dramatic compositions, a penchant for manipulating metre, an affinity for open tunings, and an unconventionally free two-handed technical approach. Gulezian's use of bottleneck slide on 12-string guitar, coupled with his command of reverse analog reverbs have made his recordings notable for their dream-like sonic atmosphere
Michael is the youngest artist ever to be signed to John Fahey’s legendary Takoma Records, arguably the most influential record label for the genre of solo acoustic instrumental guitar.

In 1979, Gulezian recorded his first LP, Snow, and released it on his own label, Aardvark Records. Fahey decided that he wanted to re-release the record on Takoma, but with a few changes. After two tracks were added and three were dropped, most of Snow was reissued by Takoma as Unspoken Intentions in 1979. When Takoma went bankrupt in 1985, Gulezian felt disillusioned with the music industry and decided to take a break from recording and return to college. In 1990, he graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in marketing. It was also in the early '90s that Gulezian got back.
