Today we are broadcasting live in Van Nuys, California. I am at the Xotic Guitars & Effects showroom with Product Specialist Kenny Echizen. Kenny is a Session & Touring Guitarist, Recording Artist, Educator, and Clinician. He is a Product Specialist for both Taylor Guitars and Xotic Guitars & Effects. Kenny’s recording credits include The Voice, One Life To Live, Disney, X Factor, True Blood, Hunger Games (TV show), Dominos Pizza, and Sons of Anarchy. His touring credits include performing with an eclectic group of artists including Taylor Dayne, U-KISS, Kamran & Hooman, Jake Simpson and many more.
Let me tell you a little bit about Xotic Guitars & Effects, the company that Kenny represents. For nearly 20 years, Xotic has been a leading innovator in sound, design, and tone. The roots of Xotic go back to a small garage in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, back in 1996. The one-man company began by producing and designing high-quality bass guitars and preamps. The company grew slowly and steadily over the next 10 years… and went on to release the Xotic AC Booster, RC Booster, and BB Preamp. As Xotic’s brand came to be more recognized throughout the market, the demand for its products became too great to stay working out of their tiny garage in San Fernando Valley. To make way for the future, a change was needed and so they moved to its current location in Van Nuys, CA. … where Xotic continues to design and manufacture world class guitars, basses, and pedals.
I am excited to be at the Xotic Showroom with my guest Kenny Echizen.
