Gibson has launched its first-ever Artist Spotlight program, with R&B singer, songwriter and producer Austin Sexton the first artist it’s championing. The guitar brand says its program will put a revolving cast of musicians and acts in the limelight in a move it says reflects its “artist-first culture.”

A freelance writer with a penchant for music that gets weird, Phil is a regular contributor to Prog, Guitar World, and Total Guitar magazines and is especially keen on shining a light on unknown artists. Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
