Fur Peace Ranch Geoff Achison Fan Club

Geoff Achison

Geoff Achison is a Melbourne-based musician of remarkable ability who has forged his own path and won fans all over the world. He's instructed at the Fur Peace Ranch for 14 years - a charter faculty member.

Having taught himself to play in the isolation of rural Australia, he developed a blues/funk style all his own that can be delicate one moment and explosive the next. Unaware of how the sounds he was hearing on his limited record collection were produced, he invented some of his own techniques - without the aid of pedals or gadgets. Just watching him wrench a myriad of sounds from his simple set-up can be something of a spectacle. Simply put, he is a jaw-dropping, crowd-pleasing guitar virtuoso with rich, soulful vocals who plays solid, gutsy, organic music. Voted one of the "Top Ten Hottest New Guitarists" by Guitar Player Magazine.
