Orangewood has announced its first foray into the signature guitar world with the Pomona Live – its new collaboration with fingerstyle extraordinaire Alejandro Aranda. 

Formerly known by his music nom de plume Scarypoolparty, Aranda was the runner-up on the 17th season of American Idol in 2019. He has since furthered his career with four albums, including Will You Remember Me When I'm Gone, released in February this year.

Phil Weller

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.
