LOCAL ARTIST JAY SEENEY SIGNS DEAL WITH INTERNATIONAL GUITAR COMPANY
Jay Seeney, a 20 year old local guitarist from Appin has just signed an endorsement deal with international guitar company, Schecter Guitar Research. Jay Seeney is a founding member of the band ‘Forever Road’ & also plays Lead Guitar for Macarthur local & CMC New Oz Artist of the Year, ‘Peter McWhirter’.
Jay has introduced Schecter into the country rock scene where it is not widely used. Schecter guitars are frequently seen amongst hard rock & metal genres but Jay has been able to apply their very versatile tone to the country rock scene.
Schecter is pleased to come on board for the increased exposure in the country rock genre & after seeing Jay play, offered him a deal.
‘I am really excited about this deal. If there was one endorsement in the entire world that I wanted, it was this one with Schecter,’ says Seeney.
Fellow Schecter endorsee’s include: Synyster Gates & Zacky Vengeance – Avenged Sevenfold, Prince, Robert Smith & Porl Thompson - The Cure & Shaun Morgan & Dale Stewart - Seether.
Seeney is proud to be a member of the Schecter family, having used them for years.
Another major highlight of the month for Seeney was playing at the festival, CMC Rocks the Hunter with Peter McWhirter where they performed to over 11,000 country music fans. He had the chance to mingle with a number of famous country music artists including Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell & The McClymonts.
Seeney looks forward to a long lasting relationship with the Schecter company & look out for him at a local gig soon rocking out on his Schecter!
