Guitar Center, the world's largest musical instrument retailer, and DIRECTV, the world's most popular video service, today announced a new series of episodes of the award-winning music series Guitar Center Sessions. Guitar Center Sessions features exclusive performances and intimate, enlightening conversations conducted by revered musical tastemaker Nic Harcourt. Peter Frampton will be among the musical guests featured this season.
Continuing its commitment to inspiring musicians, each episode of Guitar Center Sessions is filmed live in front of a studio audience in the world famous Guitar Center Hollywood Vintage Room. The show gives real music fans a rare peak inside the minds of their idols, with Harcourt's thoughtful, conversational questions drawing out new and intimate details from their storied careers. Audiences hear first-hand accounts from each artist about their personal and musical journeys and the influences that molded them into the icons they have become. "Sitting down to talk with Nic felt like a great discussion with a friend, not an inquisition," says Peter Frampton. "I can honestly say it was the best interview of my entire career to date."
"In addition to the incredible live performances Guitar Center Sessions captures, the conversations with these artists are about delving deeper and by providing a window into the creative process, inspiring other musicians," says Harcourt. "Hearing the stories behind some of the great artists of our time--from their perspective--is revealing and fascinating"
Guitar Center Sessions on DIRECTV is an extension of Guitar Center's ongoing music education based initiative of the same name. The program features informative, provocative panel discussions and hands-on tutorials for musicians and provides them with the chance to gain insight and knowledge from their heroes in a comfortable and intimate setting.
Peter Frampton's Guitar Center Sessions episode will air June 11 on DirectTV.
