The artist of this episode needs little introduction.

Throughout his career, Jon Gomm has redefined what it means to be both a singer/songwriter and an acoustic guitar player. He’s honed a style and technique of playing that is distinct and refreshing, that leaves even some of the best players wondering, how did he do that?

If you’re not familiar with Jon’s music, check out his website, Facebook, or Youtube page ASAP.
