Listen in as you hear a young man funnel his talent through music. He filled the studio with some great sounds. So, Rowan McGuire is my guest for the full hour. Rowan is a singer-songwriter from Davis, California, where he plays guitar, drums and sings. His songs feature unique finger picking techniques that have percussive elements, and they involve many different tunings. Recently he has added lyrics and vocals to his guitar playing to increase the depth and diversity of his music, blending vocal melodies and harmonies with complex picking patterns. His musical influences are John Mayer, Ben Howard, Michael Hedges, Andy McKee, and Tommy Emmanuel.
