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.
 
What's Your Story?

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.

  • Interview: Phil Manning (2016)

  • Interview: Randy Holden (2016)

  • Interview: Nik Davies (2016)
    Interviewed by Dan McAvinchey

  • Interview: Steve Coyne (2015)
