Chris is also a highly regarded guitar maker. Each instrument he hand crafts is a one of a kind work of art reflecting his passion for music and the craft of guitar making. See his work at Driftwood Guitars.
Hiroya Tsukamoto is a one-of-a-kind composer, guitarist and performing songwriter from Kyoto, Japan. He began playing the five-string banjo when he was thirteen, and took up the guitar shortly after.
After high school, Hiroya received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and came to the United States. He formed his own group in Boston "INTEROCEANICO " which consists of musicians from different continents. The group released three highly acclaimed albums and Hiroya has released two solo albums, Heartland, and Places.
Peter Karp is a storyteller who also is an assertive singer, an insightful songwriter, a spellbinding performer, and a searing slide guitarist with significant keyboard skills. Ever the multi-tasker, Karp bounces between several instruments, handling electric resonator slide guitar, acoustic guitar — as well as harmonica and piano.
As a songwriter Karp first saw national attention when guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones recorded and toured with Karp on his third release. This led to being signed to Blind Pig Records where he released Shadows and Cracks, which smashed into the top 10 on Billboard and the Blues charts. Peter has been the recipient of many distinguished accolades throughout his career including top place on the Blues charts with every single one of his albums.
