Subtle guitar chords melding with mellow piano landscapes create a soothing warmth, before erupting into cascades of vibrant melodies. A record for those looking far and heading inward.

about the record

'No Such Thing As Free Will' is the debut album by Los Angeles-based guitarist and composer Deniz Cuylan.

It signals the Turkish musician’s first bold step into the spotlight following a winding 15-year path in the music industry playing in multiple bands with home bases dotted all over the globe–Stockholm, NYC, Istanbul–and tackling a wide array of styles both on the stage and in the studio. Now settled into his current home in Los Angeles, Deniz lends his instrumental talents to create scores for independent films and recurring Netflix original series, yet these projects inevitably fulfil the sonic backdrop for another artist’s vision. Looking inward on his own for the first time, 'No Such Thing As Free Will' laid the groundwork for his own personal soundtrack, one that fused his love of classical guitar, introspective jazz, and ambient expressionism with his whimsical compositional ear.

Over a magical 6-track journey, 'No Such Thing As Free Will' paints a lush cinematic narrative with Deniz’s guitar as its guide, delivering an album that “seems to invent new languages for the guitar” (The Guardian) and receiving glowing comparisons to legends like Steve Reich, The Durutti Colum’s Vini Reilly, Glenn Branca, and Bert Jansch.
