Julian was recently by Collings in Austin to demo "Day and Age" and "Peru" on Colling's new OM2H model guitar. Check out the videos below and find out more about the OM2H guitar at collingsguitars.com
I just wanted to share a quick guitar nerd note: I am totally in love with Ron Ellis pickups, hands down the most musical, gorgeous, & dynamic pickups I've ever used. And they get better... the more you play them, its as though they mold to your playing. It’s insane. I also couldn’t think of a more sincere, hard working, kind and forward thinking person then Ron. Just a note to say thank you Ron Ellis and if you have a chance to try them, please do! For more information, Ron’s email is: email@example.com.

The new scheduling system for Skype Lessons has now arrived! I've now posted blocks of availability in between my touring so as to make scheduling a little more consistent and a lot easier. Starting today, all lessons will be booked via Facebook Skype Lesson tab or julianlage.com. You will be prompted to create an account in order to reserve a lesson but it's very simple to set up. Please check back often as spots fill up and we add new blocks of availability throughout the week. If you have any questions about the new scheduling system, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'm very happy to report that my beloved guitar shop, TR Crandall, has one of my guitars for sale as of today; a 1949 Gibson J-45 with walnut back and mahogany sides. I love this guitar and bought it the first day I entered their shop. I believe it was Tom's personal flat top for many years and served as a wonderful tool for me as I began venturing into the world of solo guitar writing. Anywho, it couldn't be in better hands than at TR Crandall and if you are looking for a J-45 with slightly warmer walnut vibe, you might dig this!

I'm thrilled to announce the upcoming release of my solo acoustic guitar record "World's Fair." This is a project I've been working on over the past couple years thanks to the love and support of my friends at The Shifting Foundation. My aim was to write a body of songs that bridged the gap between guitar studies and songs, drawing from the sonic fingerprint of early radio recordings mixed with the short form structures of some of my favorite classical and folk music. Done with my 1939 Martin 000-18 and no overdubs, this was a collaborative experience with producer Matt Munisteri and engineer Armand Hirsch, two of my absolute heroes and dearest friends.
Please check out https://julianlage.bandcamp.com/releases for my information and to hear the song "40's". Thank you for listening and hope to see you soon!
Just a quick note to say I am so grateful for all the response regarding skype lessons and promise to respond to everyone within the next couple of weeks! I'm sorry this last period of touring has taken me away from teaching but please know I look forward to seeing you all and will be writing you soon!
In support of our upcoming release ROOM, coming out November 25th, Nels and I are heading out for a short Northeast run! Stay tuned for more info on the album and future touring!
