Do you have those people in your life that are just good for the soul?  On Episode 7,  I get to hang out with my long time friend Clay Caissie.  Clay grew up in the Monroe/West Monroe area.  His life could be a New York Times best seller if he would write a book.  He has Tech’d for Michael W Smith, David Crowder, Chris Tomlin, Ringo Starr (and the All Star Band), and is currently working for “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen!  We talk about the road, gear, and Clay tells some funny stories about times spent w/ Crowder and others.  This is a Fun Conversation!

Episode 2 – Dan Burgess

When I think about someone that knows a thing or two about guitar gear (Especially in the worship world), the first person that pops into my mind is Dan Burgess.  Dan is CEO and founder of a company call This1smyne.  In my personal opinion, Dan is one of the best pedal modders out there.  He has the best prices too!  His flagship overdrive pedal is a dual over drive called “The Pearl“, and it screams!  Dan is also one of the administrators of a Facebook group called “Gear Talk: P&W”.  This is a community of worship musicians that love to talk about all kinds of craziness that has to do with gear, worship, and players.  Its a fun group to keep up with!

Above all of that,Dan Loves Jesus and has a heart to minister to people through his abilities as a guitar player, and as a business man.

In Episode 2, Dan calls in and we have a phone conversation about, trends in Worship music, gear, adoption, and more.
