Press

“Even before he started recording "House of Guitars" [Virtue Records], Ed Gerhard knew it would differ radically from his previous albums. The concept would be simple, but daring: Round up a bevy of inexpensive pawnshop guitars and play them as is-without even changing the strings. Making music with “found” tools could have been a recipe for aural disaster, but somehow "House of Guitars" stands as a creative and sonic masterpiece.”
