Sydney Guitarist Plini Signs With New Word Artists

Sydney 23-year-old guitar virtuoso Plini has announced a big step in his career today — he's signing to booking agents New World Artists, home to such heavyweights as Dead Letter Circus, Illy, Daniel Johns and British India.

The bright guitarist and composer has already piqued the interest of prog-maestro Marco Minnemann, the drummer for Joe Satriani, with Plini already having conquered stages in the UK, Japan and back home in Australia on his own headlining tour.

Plini's Australian tour with The Helix Nebula kicks off this weekend with Sydney and Melbourne's shows already sold out. He'll head to Brisbane's Crowbar on 16 August and Adelaide's Enigma Bar on 21 August, too.
