We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"When I was growing up, my best friend got a Gretsch and I was always jealous. Years passed and I finally got the opportunity to sign on as a Gretsch artist; truly a dream come true, a desire come to fruition. And to be a part of the lineage, of over 100 years, is definitely a dream come true!"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Perseverance is the key. If you want it, stay in the game and never burn a bridge."
