About The Guitar Nine Interviews

Maybe the best way to get an idea of how to accomplish dreams of releasing your own records and starting a record label are to have a conversation with someone who has already done it. Guitar Nine is proud to present interviews with guitarists who have taken the first steps to getting their music heard, without waiting for a record deal. These musicians have struck out on their own and everyone thinking about going down that same road can learn something from them. We've also included interviews from noted guitarists who have spent time in both the indie world and as 'signed' artists.

If you are an independent artist with one or more independent releases, and you would like to be interviewed about your musical goals and your experiences running a record label, please e-mail us.

Interviews

  • Interview: Paul Bibbins (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "People tell me that my music sounds unique for this day and age. I don't know if that's actually the case; but I will tell you that I'll try to sound as differently as I can, for as long as I can."

  • Interview: Gary Borden (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I find that you must have constant activity to create and maintain the interest of people. Facebook is a great way to share new projects with friends and fellow musicians but it doesn't reach people outside your circle."

  • Interview: Marcelo Roascio (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "It's always difficult to label your own music, but I think of it as instrumental classic rock. I like to compose actual songs, not guitar exercises or improvisations which will only appeal to other guitar players."

  • Interview: Lucas Fagundes (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I have been getting great feedback and a huge growth on social media, though. To me this proves quality is still the most important thing and can go a long way on its own."

  • Interview: Dave Paris (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I use a lot of variety. I swap between acoustic and electric, alternate tunings, slide, and various techniques. This CD features dobro, eBow, talkbox, even a cigar box guitar!"

  • Interview: Eliot Lewis (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I decided to release these EPs of 5 songs every 6-8 months - it's a big enough body of work to allow the listener to get involved in, and it keeps the people interested in my music always engaged in new songs."

  • Interview: Michael A. Ruelas (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I strive to be the best I can, and I do that by incorporating everything I know into my music and I never stop learning."

  • Interview: Adrian Weiss (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "My vision and formal concept of an album is always a full length CD. And I´m surprised at how many people actually order my physical CD album. Actually I´m selling quite a few more CDs than downloads."

  • Interview: Michael Cerna (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I didn't want that DIY vibe for the artwork, or the sound/production. I wanted a quality product that will stand the test of time, and that meant really deciding what I could do myself, and what would be better left to a dedicated professional."

  • Interview: Alex Baboian (2015)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "There was no goal or idea to create an album initially. The music on the album was gathered from many musical ideas that I had had over the last two years or so and were composed in many different places."

  • Interview: Ariel Eshcar (2014)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I personally think that since everything is in HD today, it gets too clear sometimes, and then, the enchanted atmosphere is not there."

  • Interview: Stus Rollins (2014)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "RadioAirplay.com - there is nothing like getting your stuff heard and getting new fans. It costs but it works and does generate interested fans who like your music."
pic
  • Interview: Adam Law (2014)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "I've found Youtube to be a great platform for exposure. It's awesome what you can do in a home studio with a GoPro, software and a few days."
pic
  • Interview: Chris Fury (2014)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "Although social media can be great to connect with fans, who knows when Facebook or Twitter will disintegrate? My advice to other musicians would be to not put all your eggs in one basket, especially if you don't own that basket!"

  • Interview: George Robinson (2014)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey
    "The upside of the democratization of music production is that anyone can create and market their own music. The downside of the democratization of music production is that anyone can create and market their own music."
