Season 2 is here and we kicked it off with our first guest appearance! 

An instrument is a loyal companion in a musicians journey. Our instruments are next to us for some of the craziest memories in our lives. Playing new stages for the first time, going on tours, recording songs. There's nothing like being the bond between you and your instrument. 

Limited Edition Fender MIM Strat

Used to record most of Villa Manor's "Redefined EP", This Strat was a staple of "my sound" in the days of me focusing on electric guitar. I want on to use it  frequently with Sourloon and it also made a handful of appearances on the new album, "How are You?"

Steve hawk's ibanez ael20-e

Steve Hawk is a local favorite for his unique songwriting and incredible sound. This guitar has served Steve well in his live performance career, and speaking from the sound guys perspective, this guitar is a dream to work with. Check it out!

Home Studio Tour

This is where all the "magic" happens. I'm grateful to have a space in my home dedicated to making music. This room has been moved around countless times to fit everything I need as a grow creatively. It's a small space to begin with. Then add amps, drums, keyboards, guitar racks, sound proofing, pedals, and a musician or two... It gets a little cramped. All that being said, this is one of my favorite places to be. Even though it is 90 degrees in here most days. 

The taylor 214ce

My main live guitar. I love the Taylor 200 series for their balance of affordability and performance.  I use this over the 210 because the 210 is so incredibly special to me. If someone is going to throw a beer bottle at me, I'd rather it hit this than my beloved 210.
