About

Fountainhead is the alter-ego of guitar player / composer / producer Tom Geldschläger. Currently operating from his studio in berlin, germany, "the Steve Vai of the new millenium" has appeared on dozens of records as a guitar player, producer & mixing-engineer. He has recorded and toured with artists and bands like Marco Minnemann, Defeated Sanity, Jimmy Pitts, Xell, Hannes Grossmann, Amogh Symphony, Christian Münzner and Nader Sadek, has been featured in various music-magazines around the globe (most recently "Guitar Plus" and "Guitar World"), was the lead-guitarist for internationally-acclaimed technical death-metal band Obscura's "Akroasis" album (to which he also contributed the 15-minute epic "Weltseele") and is a member of eclectic instrumental prog-fusion quartet "Pitts/Minnemann Project". In both bands he used fretless guitars predominantly, making him the figurehead of this otherwise rarely used breed of guitar to a new generation of guitar and metal fans - a "modern day guitar legend" indeed.

He's currently endorsed by Steinberg Software, Loxx Products, Engl Amplification, Soultool Guitars and GoodTone Pickups, from which "Fountainhead signature" guitar models and pick-ups are available. His solo releases "Fear Is The Enemy" and "Reverse Engineering" (feat. legendary players such as Derek Roddy, Ray Riendeau and more...) received rave reviews and secured him a dedicated following in just a few short years.
