A highly skilled multi-instrumentalist hailing from London, England, AK is a remarkable artist proficient in guitar, drums, bass, and keyboards. His musical journey is intricately woven with a deep love and respect for the iconic sounds of Pink Floyd, a passion ignited by the discovery of rare recordings from the 1970s. Already a socially conscious individual, AK channeled his admiration for Floyd's groundbreaking work into his own form of self-expression, giving rise to Comfortably Numb in 1993. The band emerged not as a mere tribute but as a genuine, heartfelt endeavor to create a large-scale, multimedia show that captivates Pink Floyd enthusiasts. Described by fans as 'playing like David Gilmour and sounding like Roger Waters,' AK's approach to the magic of Pink Floyd's music is unique and authentic.

Beyond Comfortably Numb, AK extends his musical prowess to THE AK PROJECT, a progressive rock act. The debut album, 'Outside the Cage,' has garnered both critical acclaim and commercial success.

Recognized for his dedication, AK is the recipient of the Contemporary Flamenco Guitar Institute grant award from Andalusian Guitars.
