    Look who I meet and whose guitar I got to play... ;)

    I was not able to get to see them live but I wanted to stop by and say 'Hi!' Plus buy some merch.

    John was an incredibly nice guy and I hope you enjoy the Coffee John!
    Thanks again and God Bless!

    His Mayones felt absolutely incredible and I would love to have one of those instruments! Solid Epic Quality instrument.

    I really really like Chris as a singer, but this video showcases once again that their newest album would also work perfectly fine as an instrumental album.

    :yesway:

    I completely agree. Chris is great, but I've probably digested the material more through his playthrough videos as instrumentals as opposed to the actual tracks.

    The final mix on the album is very busy, and while I enjoy it, I totally get what people mean. I think Chris adds a very necessary layer (or 2 or 3) on the songs though and did a great job with lyrical themes of the album as well.

    He also kills it live and add a good amount to their performances. The other lads are usually busy killing it, after all..

    It's cool that their first time touring here is a couple different tours with different bands. I'll probably end up seeing them twice! haha

    I got a chance to interview Chris Barretto back when they played Gramercy Theater in NYC. Let me just say, Chris will tell you everything you want to hear. From the story that goes on in "The Amanuensis," to life on the road, and even some awesome Ever Forthright stuff, Chris covers all the details. Check it out, and I hope you all enjoy it!

    PS - I kind of fanboy-out in this interview. What can I say, dude was just awesome to talk to!
