Luna Guitars Expands Nashville Presence: Live on WSM 650am

Luna Guitars Talks Acoustic Guitars, Ukuleles, St. Jude and Collaboration with the Warren Brothers Live on 650 AM WSM, Nashville Today

Tampa, FL — April 21, 2018 On Wednesday, April 10th, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. Central Time the light on the On-Air sign illuminated Nashville Today host Devon O’Day welcomed Luna Artist Jessica Rose and Adam Gomes, Director of Marketing & Artist Relations at Luna Guitars, back to WSM and behind the mic. Topics of discussion included Luna’s expanded Nashville presence, a recent video shoot with legendary songwriters The Warren Brothers, iHeartMedia’s Charity event for St. Jude, and the power of brand ambassadors. Read the overview of the segment below.

On April 9th, Luna stepped into the world of award-winning and pro-songwriting duo most commonly known as The Warren Brothers, to record guitar demonstration videos at Big Loud. The guitars featured are  from the Artist Series, which includes the Vintage Series and the all-solid wood Recorder Series. Each series will be added to the Luna website on their corresponding product page. Brad Warren, known for his lead-guitar playing skills, demonstrated the playability of the Recorder Series, while Brett Warren enjoyed the smooth strumming and rustic feel of the Vintage Series.

Demonstration videos with The Warren Brothers are expected to be released early Summer 2018. More information coming soon.  

“It’s no surprise two highly-talented people like The Warren Brothers recently won a CMA Triple Play Award for writing 3 hit singles in a year – they are great guys and deserve it,” said Gomes to host Devon O’Day, who is also a friend of The Warren Brothers. “We are thankful they were generous to make time to shoot demo videos for Luna and even more thankful they approve of the Vintage & Recorder Series’ guitars.”

On Sunday, April 8th Luna Guitars partnered with The Big 98 to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the annual Songs & Stories at Wildhorse Saloon. The annual event hosted by iHeartMedia featured performances from prominent songwriters such as Chris Destefano, JT Harding, Lauren Alaina, as well as Luna special guests Jessica Rose and Payton Taylor. Luna Guitars donated acoustic guitars to be autographed and auctioned for charity with all proceeds donated to St. Jude.

“Songs & Stories was an intricate storytelling evening and we hope the guitar donations help make a big monetary impact for St Jude’s,” said Gomes, speaking with Devon O’Day on air. “The event was also an opportunity for aspiring musicians in attendance to test drive a new guitar or ukulele from a brand making waves in the Nashville scene.”

Transitioning the discussion from Artists and Songwriters to the modern technological world, O’Day asked Luna Artist Jessica Rose, “What role does social media play when it comes to Artist development and reach?” Rose replied, “It is so cool to be able to communicate with my fans on a daily basis! I love hearing their feedback and bringing them behind the scenes on projects that people wouldn’t necessarily be able to see!”  

Gomes added, “Jessica is correct and does a great job. Artists should continuously stay-on-top of social media accounts that keep the target audience dialed-in and keeps their message fresh for fans. From a manufacturer stand-point, you can find some of the best brand ambassadors such as Luna Artist Chase Stephen, who will be instrumental in promoting brand awareness across social media.”

While wrapping up their time on the air, Devon O’Day asked  Adam Gomes questions about niche-specific instruments:

Topics discussed included:

  • Children’s guitars
  • 6-String Ukulele
  • Most Popular Ukulele Body Shape
  • Cajon

“Creative innovation begins with choosing the right instrument for you.”
