In November 2004 at a joint concert in Moscow, Sergey Pasechnik met with Canadian musician Michael Hockney (Strong Forest) who opened for the band as a special guest It was the dawn of a new joint creativity. Strong Forest is the brainchild of guitarist Michael Hockney (aka Linn Yeung) bringing forth a unique blend of musical talent derived from an extremely diverse multicultural life experience. A guitarist since 1969, Linn yeung began with a classical training and progressed to the octave nuances of 12-string guitar in the late 1970's. A World traveller, over the years the guitarist has experimented with an arsenal of unique instruments and has forged a truly independent and adaptable musical style. Today this encompasses even 11-string fretless techniques. As a soloist the artist has performed from the streets of Amsterdam to intimate coffee lounges and rave venues in Vancouver Island to large underground rock festivals in Taiwan. Innovation and adaptability are quintessential elements to the artist's ever developing and progressive musical style.
