Topeka-born Andy McKee has made the cover of both Acoustic Guitar and Britain’s Acoustic magazine. He’s a virtuoso to beat the band! Andy entertains both the eye and the ear with his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits, and with his signature two-handed technique. His guitar performance videos have received hundreds of millions of views on the Internet, and at one point he held the top three positions on YouTube’s list of top-rated videos of all time. After starting out on electric guitar, Andy switched as a teen to acoustic and began studying the music of Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Billy McLaughlin, and Preston Reed. To this day he still cites those four musicians as primary influences. Master craftsman and innovator at the same time, Andy McKee is a virtuoso for our time, and his live shows are absolutely legendary.

Trevor Gordon Hall is a powerful emerging voice, albeit without words to his music, showing that combining honest heart felt compositions with precise technical virtuosity do not sideline an artist in today’s world but can launch a wider reach than ever before. With an exploding presence on streaming services like Spotify, YouTube etc., a tour calendar that has taken him all over the world, it’s safe to say that this is a new era for artists like Trevor to engage listeners from all cultures, languages, genres, and backgrounds.
