"Larrivée guitars have always been a natural fit for me. Top notch quality, tone, selection, make them my instruments of choice."
Discovering the guitar at the age of 10, Ben DeBerry was hooked from the start. Ben spent his formative years honing his craft through live performances and teaching private guitar lessons. After moving to Nashville in 2006, Ben and his wife Dorothy Daniel started their original band The Danberrys. Having embraced bluegrass in 2008 at The 5 Spot (bar in East Nashville) weekly bluegrass jam, Ben’s acoustic guitar playing is a lynchpin in the Danberrys sound. His solid playing and grasp of theory leads to interesting harmonic shifts - letting their music straddle and dip into the crannies between genres. Ben is an award-winning song-writer and recording artist with The Danberrys, including multiple IMA nominations and a recent win in the best bluegrass song category.
A testament to his drive and talent, Chad Brownlee (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) is an extraordinary example of what one person can achieve. Although he may focus on living in the moment, absorbing every treasured second with his fans while performing on stage, Brownlee has already lived a life many would argue could fill multiple lifetimes. An award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick, country music artist Brownlee is by definition a renaissance man, who lives by the credence that “opportunity lies along the path created by the choices you make.”
