Pick of the Week — Standby Anchors

This week’s Pick of the Week was made for the band Standby Anchors.

The members of Standby Anchors are old enough to know better, but young enough to not care.  The band offers amped-up power-pop with a dark side for those about to rock.  The current line up of the band is:  Mike Devine (lead vocals, guitar), Brent Anderson (drums), Bryan Scrivener (bass), and Phil Anderson (lead guitar, vocals).  Standby Anchors is based in Kansas City and plays original songs that are best characterized as modern alternative/indie rock with a definite appreciation for alt rock sounds of the 80s and 90s through the present day.  Members of the band have appeared in earlier projects that have toured across the United States and that have released records on indie labels.

 

You can find Standby Anchors …

Pick of the Week — EOS

This week’s Pick of the Week is for the band EOS:

Featuring a whopping eleven-piece band, its four sizzling female singers put this group way over the top in the best of ways. The band features lead guitarist Joe “Ciid” Birardi, rhythm guitarist Bill Tuohy as well as bassist Wendy Williamson, and third guitarist Kevin Losardo. Add drummer Brian Picardi, percussionist Gerry Mac, and keyboardist Andy Ilyinsky and you have a full stage of rock and roll veterans that put on an unstoppable show.

Birardi’s “big” idea stemmed from watching the same old delivery in club after club where the music was governed by the stereotypical four-piece format. The EOS frontline is impressive indeed. Made up of Theresa Wilson, Dawn Szollar, Danielle Zelenak and Patti Ogletree, the four dynamic beauties spin rock and roll harmony between shifting lead vocal duties while the band holds it down behind them and it’s never a dull moment.

EOS has worked closely with several New Jersey charities including: Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon, The NJ Elks Army of Hope, Operation Jersey Cares, and The Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Foundation. Thanks to you, they have been able to raise nearly $20K for these causes to date.   All proceeds from their downloaded songs will be donated to our troops via Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon.  EOS thanks you for your support! Find out more about EOS at www.eosrocks.com!

The EOS picks were made on our white pearl material, using the full bleed option that allows their design to fill the pick to the edge. We love the detail of their design, and the pearl is a great material to support the variety of warm color tones. Order your own custom picks today at www.claytoncustom.com!

Pick of the Week — Captain Ivory

This week’s Pick of the Week is for the band Captain Ivory; a Detroit-based, high energy rock band, that is putting their own spin on Motor City Rock N’ Roll.  The group pulls inspiration from many different rock artists, including Led Zeppelin, the Kings of Leon, and fellow Detroiter Jack White.  The combination of many different styles and genres makes their live show something to behold, and the band is quickly gaining traction in the Midwest.  They just completed a live album recorded all in one take at Groovebox Studios, Detroit.  The songs, along with videos and other information can be found on their website: http://captainivory.com

 

The Captain Ivory guitar picks were made on our white delrin pick material, and we appreciated the high level of detail and artistic quality in their logo. To order your own custom printed guitar picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!

Pick of the Week — Frogs Gone Fishin’

This week’s Pick of the Week is for the band Frogs Gone Fishin’:

“At a Frogs Gone Fishinʼ show, fans are treated to heavy-hitting rock with the Frogʼs signature improvisational twist. In an age of auto-tuned vocals and laptop superstars, itʼs great to find a band who relies on harmonies, strong melody, and dynamic rhythms to keep their fans coming back. On any given night, the Frogs cut across genres and material from their two albums and never, ever, play the same set-list twice. This diversity in song choice and explosive improvisational energy has earned the band enthusiastic and devoted fans from places as far apart as Denver and New Orleans, Chicago and Austin, New York and San Francisco.”

To learn more about this fun group, visit their site at http://frogsgonefishin.com/

The Frogs picks were made on our acetal guitar pick material, and we love the bold color and style of their logo. To order your own custom guitar picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com!

Pick of the Week — Maybe Refuge

This week’s Pick of the Week was ordered by guitarist Hiu—who sometimes go by the alias/nickname: LVXS. Hiu plays the bass in a band called Maybe Refuge. They’re a 4-piece alternative rock/pop band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and they write and play mostly original music. Combining a deep, story-telling writing style, modern guitar tone, and a groovy, driving rhythm section, the band can be described as being fun, quirky, and modern, but with a bold underlying message to possibly bring “refuge” to their listeners. They currently have an EP out that’s available via their webstore or on iTunes and they’re working on a new album right now. They’ve got another gig coming up in Toronto as they open for another local band and that’s going to be on December 27th. You can find details and an event on their facebook page: www.facebook.com/mayberefuge.
 The official website is www.mayberefuge.com but you can also find the band on twitter and youtube by searching “Maybe Refuge.”
The Maybe Refuge Picks were made on our acetal pick material in the rounded triangle shape. We like how Hiu used the full bleed option to stretch the band logo like a banner across the pick, they turned out really great! To order your own custom guitar picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!

Pick of the Week — Megan Burtt

This week’s Pick of the Week was created by customer Bud Boyd, to help promote artist-on-the-rise Megan Burtt.

“Inspired by masters of the craft like Joni Mitchell (lyrics), Bonnie Raitt (guitar), Sarah McLachlan (voice) and Shawn Colvin (performance), Megan has pursued perfection—listening and practicing with every available moment and attending Berklee College of Music in Boston to fully immerse herself in the techniques.

She graduated an accomplished guitarist and vocalist and took off in search of stories to tell. Megan explored South America, Africa and Asia soaking in the cultures and listening to the stories of people the world over. She wanted to learn the blues so she moved to Mississippi to let her soul experience its roots. She was chasing the dream, seeking inspiration and honing her craft.

Life, however, had its own plan for Megan. Her time in the South was derailed by life-threatening illness and her recovery inspired existential discovery and brought her home to Colorado. With a clean bill of health and an energizing gratitude for the journey, Megan Burtt put pen to paper for her debut record. Capturing over two decades of listening, learning, traveling and playing yielded an astonishing amount of songs—she had to choose how to make her first recorded impression. She partnered with Producer/Engineer Eddie Jackson (James Taylor, Vienna Teng, Guster) in a vintage studio in upstate New York with her band, The Cure For Love which features Louis Cato, Adam Tressler, and James Williams. The goal for the debut was to reach as many listeners as possible. They wanted to push the boundaries of Megan’s melodic musicianship and powerful vocals, so they focused the record around a topic that everyone can relate to: love (or the lack thereof). The result was 2010’s “It Ain’t Love”—and it accomplished the mission exactly: “This record is poppy enough to be easily accessible, yet contains some incredible originality.” (The Ruckus)

To find out more about Megan Burtt, her music, and her inspirational story thus far, visit http://www.meganburtt.com/ or http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/meganburtt.

Megan’s picks were made on our white acetal guitar pick material, with a full bleed design (the design goes all the way to the edge of the pick for full coverage. We love how the cover of her album and the overall design theme of her site is incorporated into her pick design.

Pick of the Week — Ella Kaye

This Week’s Pick of the Week is for the band Ella Kaye.

“Emerging from the ashes of recently passed Ever Divine, the band has come back with a new line up and a whole new set. With Garrin Beaudoin and Michael Martin on guitar, Jeremy Novakowski on bass, Phil Del Vecchio on drums, and Justin Chard on vocals, the band, formed in 2011, is tearing up Arizona’s metal scene.”

Behind the name:  Ella Kaye is a character in the book “The Great Gatsby”.  Dan Cody’s last will gave Jay Gatsby a 25,000 inheritance, but Ella Kaye manages to use the court system against Jay to the win the money for herself.  Because of this, Jay sees Ella as a gold digger.

Find out more about Ella Kaye at http://www.facebook.com/EllaKayeAZ

The Ella Kaye picks were made on our white delrin pick material, and we really like the intricacy and detail of the design that the band created! Order your own custom picks today at www.claytoncustom.com!

Earrpix.com

Here at Clayton, we love to learn about some of the creative ways that customers use custom printed guitar picks, and we have one to share with you that is perfect for the holidays! Our customer, Amanda, orders custom picks to be made into earrings that she sells online. You can check out her website, www.Earrpix.com. We love how she has the picks printed here, but then she assembles the earrings herself, adding beads and metallic swirls to give them a very professional and stylish look. She has created some specialty designs just for the holidays too! See some examples below:

These earrings make for a wonderful gift idea! The following is an excerpt from Amanda’s site that describes the earrings:

“Like the guitar itself, the pick has become an art form. Small in stature, the most sought-after concert will come to a silent halt without the band’s lead and rhythm players each grasping a tiny plectrum to command their instruments. We share your appreciation, and present our line of signature Earrpix Earrings. Whether worn in tribute to your favorite guitarist, to the beauty and splendor of the music created with them, or just because they are fun, interesting, and sure to invoke a smile and comment whenever worn, pick a pair or two and make your own statement.”

Again, visit the site at www.Earrpix.com ! Or, visit www.clatyoncustom.com to create your own custom pick designs!

The Tone King

We were very excited to work with Tone King and print their custom guitar picks for them. They chose to print their picks on White Pearl which toneking gave the design a cool marbleized look. If you do not know of them already we would suggest that you check out their website. They have many gear reviews, gear news and more. This post here will tell you what they did with the picks :-).

Geocache that Pick!

As many of you know, custom picks are not made solely for musicians. They are often used for advertising, weddings, and even as clasp-openers for jewelry. What we really love is when our customers can combine their love of music with other passions, and this is one of the most interesting combinations that we have heard of so far!

Lisa is “a 40-year-old mum shamelessly playing metal in the attic when the rest of the family is at school/work…” Her second hobby is geocaching. Geocaching is a sort of high-tech treasure hunt where people go looking for boxes hidden by other players with a GPS all over the world.
They are about 5 million players worldwide. One may find little objects in the “geocache” that they can trade with another little object.
Some players make a trading item with their geocaching nickname and drop it in the geocaches. This is where Lisa’s “signature items” come in. Lisa decided, because of her love for electric guitar, that a customized pick would be the perfect treasure: it relates to her, fits easily even in small caches, and is original.
Lisa’s geocaching name is “Mirage Breton” meaning, in French, “Mirage from Brittany”.
Brittany being a region of France heavily influenced by Celtic culture- hence the Triskell design you can partially see on the pick- which represents land, sea and fire.
Lisa writes: “I’m thrilled by the quality of the picks and I have an immense pleasure playing my guitar with ‘my own picks’. I’m also enjoying the fact that these picks are now traveling all over the earth (I travel a lot) and puzzling fellow geocachers…”
Follow Lisa in her geocaching adventures on Twitter at:
http://twitter.com/geoT7

Shown here is the next geocache that Lisa is going to hide with the pick ready to be traded!

Lisa’s picks were made on our white pearl pick material, which gives that 3-D iridescent effect to her design. Order your own custom picks today at www.claytoncustom.com!

Pick of the Week — Crush Junkies

This week’s Pick of the Week is for the band Crush Junkies.

“Crush Junkies members came together with one intention; ‘rawk the dance clubs.’ Since the inception of Crush Junkies, support for the band has been overwhelming and clubs throughout the region have booked the band solid well into and through 2013.

What can you expect from a Crush Junkies show? A solid rock show of music from bands like Shinedown, Foo Fighters, Seether, Papa Roach, The Black Keys and other more modern rock bands as well as select classic cuts from Queen, U2, The Cult and others.

Crush Junkies is a 5 piece, 2 guitar rock band with strong vocals from all members. Previously, all the members have been gigging in clubs and festivals across the region in bands that included The Slangs, Cactus Hill, Saucy Jackson, The Distractions and Superholics to name just a few.”

Learn more about Crush Junkies on their facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/CrushJunkies?ref=hl!

The Crush Junkies picks were made on our acetal pick material. Acetal is known for being a grainy, not slip material, and the picks are great for imprinting with a variety of light-to-dark shades as shown with the colorful Crush Junkies artwork. They also took advantage of the full bleed option for their design, which allows for the artwork to go all the way to the edge of the guitar pick for full coverage.  Order your own custom picks today at www.claytoncustom.com!

Pick of the Week — The Jason Lugo Band

This week’s Pick of the Week was made for both Jason Lugo, lead vocals and guitar, and Mark Williams, lead guitarist, of The Jason Lugo Band:

“From the glitz and glamour of performing 6 years professionally in Las Vegas to the wide open spaces of Southern Idaho, Jason Lugo, Southern Idaho Living’s co-owner and publisher, is making a full circle in the music world. After a 16-year absence from the stage, Lugo and his self-titled band bring to Idaho a fusion of modern country and rock music that is in demand.

Playing in clubs and restaurants and for special events throughout the Magic Valley with upcoming dates as opening acts for country artists including Montgomery Gentry & David Nail, the Jason Lugo Band is quickly drawing an ever-growing fan base.

After playing at Canyon Crest in Twin Falls for only a matter of months, the band packed its lounge so consistently that they were moved to the main restaurant on a bigger stage with more room for expanding crowds.

The Jason Lugo Band is scheduled to play monthly at Canyon Crest in Twin Falls. If you plan on seeing them, be sure to call and reserve a table. Tables are often reserved up to two days prior to performances.

To learn more about the Jason Lugo Band, visit their sites at www.jasonlugoband.com and
facebook.com/jasonlugoband!!

Jason writes about his use of Clayton custom guitar picks:

“I’ve been using Clayton picks since I first started performing/gigging 18 years ago in Las Vegas. I still have my ‘lucky pick’ for all the opening acts I’ve done way back when.. it’s over 16 years old. I’m a graphic artist and built the logo and design on my picks… and I build lots of logos for other bands and artists.” Visit Jason’s art site at www.lugographics.com!

The Jason Lugo Band picks were made on our acetal pick material. Acetal is known for being a grainy, not slip material, and they are great for imprinting with a variety of light-to-dark colors as shown with the awesome Jason Lugo Band logo, created by Jason himself.
