Making instruments for a large variety of artists in a wide range of genres is a labor of love. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our favorite artists enjoying our instruments as much as we do.
Peter Stroud has been Sheryl Crow’s guitarist for approaching 20 years and currently serves as her music director. He has also played with Don Henley, Sarah McLachlan, Pete Droge, Big Hat (his own band) and co-founded 65amps, one of the leading boutique amp builders born during the 18-watt craze. “My T58 feels and sounds as vintage as any other old guitar I’ve ever used.” You can catch Peter playing his Eastman on tour this summer.
Caught half way between the dark swoon of pop-noir, the raw rasp of soul music, and the honest punch of Americana, Suzanne Santo is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who, more than 10 years into an acclaimed career, is turning a new corner. Produced by Butch Walker Ruby Red marks Santo’s first solo release apart from her time fronting the Americana duo HoneyHoney. Here she takes a break from that long time gig to explore something different, creating a moody, sexually-charged album filled with organic instruments, distorted fiddle, Walkers powerful electric guitar, and Santo’s most stunning vocal performance to date

From humble beginnings in North Carolina, providing musical support for his grandfather’s church services, to almost single-handedly revitalizing the Laurel Canyon music scene, Jonathan Wilson is a musical force to be reckoned with.
