Interview with Machine Translations

Few Australian artists have had as unique and prolific a career as our very own Greg Walker. Nor is there any one with this much industry respect and admiration harder to find info about! A very outdated web page and a Facebook profile that was only just launched don’t help. But… these are all endearing facts that reflect a delicate and somewhat introverted artist who’s far less interested in the hype and wants to focus on the facts. So I’ll mention some of what I know but rest assured ...

New Artist Spotlight: Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay

Before the World Was Made is a delicious mix: raw, retro Country plus sweet irony. That’s apparently the specialty of Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay, the Austin-based duo whose debut, on their B&N imprint, is hilarious, sentimental and profound, usually all at the same time. Produced by Gurf Murlix, with only one of its 12 tracks penned by an outside writer, this album draws from Guy Clark, Lucinda Williams, the Louvin Brothers and, perhaps unconsciously, Nichols and May. Backed by...

New Artist Spotlight: Chelsea Bain

NASCAR fans like their Country Music tough, sleek and hot, just like their cars. That explains why Chelsea Bain has been rocking racetracks around the country. In May and June alone, her concert schedule included the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Michigan International Speedway, not to mention an interview segment with Kyle Petty on the FOX Sports “Trackside” program. Raised on an Arizona ranch, Bain personally prefers getting around on horses...

Guitar Talk with 311 Frontman Nick Hexum

Nick Hexum is best known for fronting alternative rockers 311, but now, he’s branching out on his own. Hexum just released his debut solo album, My Shadow Pages, and the album shows him taking a new, fresh direction, with songs that blend pop, jazz, funk and classic rock. When laying down guitar lines for My Shadow Pages, Hexum took to his black ES-355. We chatted with Hexum about the new album, going solo and why Gibson guitars are “the whole package.”

New Artist Spotlight - Tyler Farr

Tyler Farr celebrates girls and trucks. Just what Country Music needs, right? In Farr’s case, absolutely. He follows a familiar path through much of Redneck Crazy, his Columbia Nashville debut. But every now and then he slams on the brakes and veers in an unexpected direction. Farr’s drawl draws from somewhere south of his hometown, Garden City, Mo. He rasps too, whether it’s from loving the outdoorsman’s lifestyle or working four nights each week at Tootsies Orchid Lounge.

Kingdom Come - The Bryan & Katie Torwalt Story

When Jesus prayed his now famous prayer, not only was he the conduit for God’s kingdom on earth in that moment, but he kicked wide the door of heaven to invade our space from that moment on. His Kingdom. Right now. Such a world-shaking concept. On October 15th, Bryan and Katie Torwalt released their much-anticipated sophomore album, Kingdom Come, a collection of modern worship anthems steeped in full surrender to the wondrous will of God today... and forever.

Todd Carey Breaks Away From His Music Mold

Many singer / songwriters have a challenge of breaking into the music industry. Once they get into a label and start recording, they fall into a style that has been manufactured, and a style that is repetitive. Then the musician’s music style is then distributed into many coffee shops where they play songs that sound very similar. However, for Chicago native Todd Carey, who now currently resides in New York City, had always been aware of his style of music. He decided to break away...

The Gibson Interview: Jars of Clay’s Matthew Odmark

Jars of Clay are anything but newbies. Over the years, the Nashville-based Christian alternative rock band has scored three Grammy Awards and sold 5.2 million albums and 1.4 million singles.Head to a Jars of Clay show, and you’ll spot guitarist Matthew Odmark playing a variety of Gibson models on the stage. “Each of my Gibsons does a very unique and specific thing,” he told “It feels like a real instrument. They are rough around the edges in just the right way to make you...

Sammy Hagar: The Gibson Interview

Sammy Hagar has always captured everything that's fun about rock n' roll: the loud guitars and fast cars, the women, the fun in the sun… but more importantly, he's never forgotten that music is best when it's shared. The late-night jams at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Mexico are legendary - heck, they directly led to the formation of his band Chickenfoot with Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith - and it's stuff like this that helps us relate to Sammy even when he's playing arenas or ...

Bernie Marsden Talks The Beast, The Blues, Bonamassa and David Coverdale Reunion

With the Collector’s Choice™ #8 Les Paul “The Beast” selling like hot cakes, Bernie Marsden has had a fine 2013 already. But there’s more to come from the veteran BritBlues-rocker. Gibson’s Collector’s Choice™ #8 Les Paul “The Beast” is the replica of the fabled ’59 LP Marsden used throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, from bands Wild Turkey to Cozy Powell’s Hammer to hit days with Whitesnake. Marsden still plays it now, of course. But he couldn’t be happier than having a Collector’s ...

Mick Ralphs: The Gibson Interview

In the early ‘70s, during the glory years of Mott the Hoople, Ralphs was the instrumental force behind such classics as “All the Way from Memphis” and Mott’s definitive version of David Bowie’s “All the Young Dudes.” Then, in 1973, along with singer Paul Rodgers, drummer Simon Kirke and bassist Bozz Burrell, he co-founded Bad Company, one of the few bands that more than lived up to its “supergroup” tag. Songs such as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Shooting Star” and “Feel Like Makin’ Love...

The Court Yard Hounds Aren’t Just Whistling Dixie

Let’s get this out of the way right up front. The Court Yard Hounds, composed of sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, will always be linked to another group they’re a part of — the Dixie Chicks. Formed in 1989 with Laura Lynch and Robin Lynn Macy, they pared down to a trio with lead singer Natalie Maines. In this configuration, they won 10 CMA Awards and dominated Country Music from the late 1990s until 2006, when their ongoing recording hiatus began.

Derek Trucks Talks About “Made Up Mind”

Derek Trucks is on the phone from Virginia Beach, where he’ll play the final date on the Allman Brothers summer tour that night and, the next day, fly out to meet his wife, singer-guitar slinger Susan Tedeschi, and the nine other members of their Tedeschi Trucks Band onstage for a gig. Then it’s a few days off before the group sprints back into a tour that will continue through the end of 2013. Trucks seems intent on vying...

The Gibson Interview: Papa Roach’s Jerry Horton

Like many great guitarists, Papa Roach’s Jerry Horton was inspired to pick up the six-string after hearing James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett’s blazing riffs. “The band that made me want to play guitar I’m going to have to say is Metallica,” Horton told “I started out listening to Mötley Crüe, but it wasn’t really until I got into Metallica that I really wanted to start playing.” “I took lessons for a couple of months,” he added, “but after that, I decided I just wanted to learn by ear-- learning songs ...
