On his ACT debut "Winter Light", guitarist Scott DuBois explores the moods of a long winter's day - from the first light of the tundra, over snow in the late morning to afternoon ice fog and a blizzard in the evening.
Only few weeks after its release, the highly atmospheric album has received euphoric international press reactions:

From the first awakening passages to the final winding down and all the impassioned moments in-between, Winter Light is always going for something beyond just songs and solos. With his composing pen, leadership and guitar, Scott DuBois has painted a Monet.
