The diverse background of award winning guitarist Gene Ess has had a profound effect on creating his unique style. Gene's musical background began with the study of classical piano with a focus on the works of Beethoven and Chopin. Though Gene is originally from Tokyo, Japan, he grew up on a United States Air Force Base on Okinawa. This experience led him to be exposed to a mix of cultural influences ranging from indigenous music of Okinawa to the pop and jazz music that flowed from the clubs that catered to American soldiers.
