about

Each of these songs was written, performed and recorded by me for a demo video of a particular pedal, guitar and/or amp. In each case my goal was to demonstrate the range and musical strengths of the gear in the context of what I hope is interesting and satisfying music that ultimately stands on its own. This made for an interesting creative constraint: the composition and playing had to serve both the musical and technical priorities fully. I didn’t want to make music that sounded generic, or like it was about selling a pedal; I wanted to make good music that is made more musically interesting by fact I am trying to use the gear demonstratively. My solution was to try and play things that were inspired by, or even dictated by, the specific characteristics of the gear. After all, the best guitar, amp or pedal is the one that makes you play differently than you would otherwise. I hope you enjoy the tracks. Thanks for listening! -- Just Nick
