1. From the tiny town of Horsefly, British Columbia, Jason and Pharis Romero create some of the most unique fretted instruments available today. J. Romero Custom Banjos pay homage to early old-time open-back banjos but with thoroughly modern improvements. They are unique, artistic banjos that look as stunning as they sound.

    Film director Matt Miles travelled to Horsefly to interview the Romeros both about their banjos and their music career. He created this film for the Fretboard Journal magazine. The Fretboard Journal is a quarterly print magazine dedicated to the art of fretted instruments and good music-making.

    Created for the Fretboard Journal by:
    Matt miles - Audio recordist, camera one and editor.
    Lindsay Marie Stewart - Still photography and satellite b-roll camera
    Chris Wilson - Camera two and lighting

  2. Seattle's own Cahalen Morrison & Eli West stopped by the Fretboard Journal offices to play a few tunes for us. This song, "Won't Be Long," comes from their release, The Holy Coming of the Storm.

    For this tune, both Morrison and West play instruments built by luthier Fletcher Brock (fletcherbrock.com/Home.html).

    We'll post a few more tunes from Morrison and West on fretboardjournal.com soon. In the meantime, you can learn more about this duo by visiting their website: cahalenandeli.com/.
