We are guitar players and producers.
We make records.
We create things.
We don’t usually use hashtags.

We enjoy fragmented.
We believe iconic tone is the culmination of technical creation and human inspiration. Also, cyborgs.
We start all our concepts with the player in mind, not the amp. The result is a simple but profound line of inspiring profiles for use in the studio and on stage.
Nolan has been a studio and touring engineer for 15 years. Working with major labels and independent artists in Detroit, Nashville, Portland, and LA, his studio work has been featured on PBS, ESPN, MTV, and Showtime. Nolan’s touring experience as an audio engineer and production manager has taken him around the world a few times over, collaborating with over 20 artists including Keb Mo, Crowder, Katie Hertzig, Brooke Fraser and many others. Nolan approaches all of his technical roles with an artist’s mind. He thinks that Kempers sound amazing but can be pretty miserable to use, which is why he got some of his buds together and started Tone Thieves.
