Taylor Guitar’s Wood & Steel Magazine Interview

July 22nd, 2012|

I wanted to share this interview that was just released in Taylor Guitar’s Wood & Steel Magazine. Page 26-27 (pdf page 14). They wanted to talk about the process of writing/recording my “Buddha’s Ear” album and had some pretty interesting questions. I thought you might enjoy some easy summer reading.

Best wishes,
