“Short Stories” is the ninth album by award-winning New Age/Ambient artist Michelle Qureshi, released on her label Music as Metaphor. It is a collection of acoustic ﬁnger style guitar pieces that are imaginative, whimsical, poetic and powerful!
The tracks explore the colors, textures, and harmonics of steel and nylon string guitars, incorporating alternate tunings, glass slide, and various capos. The thoughtful and mystical album art is based on a work painted and designed by Ellen Lupton.

“The gorgeous emotional tone will wash over you and move you to a place that at once seems familiar and yet is somewhere you’re sure you’ve never quite been before.”
