2012 has been a wonderful year for live acoustic music in Frederick (MD). I'd like to thank the Frederick Coffee Company (Mike Winder & Crew), Brewers Alley (Phil Bowers), Elk Run Vineyards (Fred & Carol Wilson), Linganore Winecellars (Eric Allen), Beans In The Belfry (Hanna & Jim Politis), and good friends Scott Barrett, Andrew McKnight, Rod Deacey and the entire F.A.M.E. and SAW cast of characters. Without you folks, live acoustic music would be unheard. I'd also like to thank Gray Burchette (www.burchetteguitars.com), Jason Harshbarger (www.highlandstrings.com), Taylor Guitars (www.taylorguitars.com), the late Mike Marler (www.marlerguitars.com), Bose (Bose L1 PA's), Shure, Sennheiser, Neumann, and Blue microphones. And lastly, Elixir Strings (the best guitar strings on the planet, in my opinion). These companies have all contributed to helping me make my music sound better. I look forward to working with all of the above, plus Jeff Feit (www.torchlightstudios.com) and Doug Smith (www.shabrowrecording.com) in 2013.
