Episode 28 Johnny Balmer - Alchemy Audio

Welcome to Episode 28 of The Guitar Speak Podcast!

This week we speak to Johnny Balmer of Alchemy Audio. Based in Chicago, Johnny mods, builds and repairs pedals of all stripes. He has some high profile clients and is working on a line of original designs. Johnny also finds time to brew his own craft beer!

We also have some exciting news about the 2017 Tamworth Country Music Festival from our friends Michael Fix (Guitar Speak Podcast Episode 3) and Jayne Denham. We get to hear some of Michael's Golden Guitar nominated tune, "Cosmopolitan Blues".

Finally, the brilliant Sydney based label 4-4-2 Music has released it's latest Christmas album, "God Bless the Children". It's a glorious mess of indie, electronica, alt-folk and ambient celebration...definitely not playing anytime soon in your local shopping mall. We check out one of the tracks.

Thanks for tuning in!

Episode 27 Jon Sullivan from Sully Guitars Pt II

We continue our discussion with Jon Sullivan from Sully Guitars in Dallas, TX.

In this interview Sully describes in great detail his working partnership with the legendary Grover Jackson on a limited run of Sully '71s. Sully also talks us through some new designs and refinements to come to the range in 2017, and we speak about The Luthierist 2.0 Podcast, which he co-hosts with Paul Rhoney (of the awesome Rhoney Guitars).

BONUS STUFF! I asked Sully, as an invested Kiss fan, what he thought about Ace Frehley's 'Spaceman' character now being franchised out to whoever plays lead guitar in Kiss. He sent me a fascinating monologue as well as a version of Dr Love...where Sully plays all the guitars alongside the original recording stems.
