Congrats to longtime Epiphone fan Crystal Bowersox who released a new album this summer, Alive! Look for it at record stores everywhere. Crystal will appear on NPRs World Cafe Live on September 10 and has new tour dates scheduled throughout the east coast and midwest in the fall including Maine, New York, New Hampshire, Michigan, and our hometown of Nashville, TN. Visit Crystal's website for details.

Crystal and guitarist David DePrest stopped by Epiphone HQ this spring where she previewed songs from the new album and gave an audition to the new Epiphone Masterbilt Century Olympic.

"Epiphone guitars, they helped make this album possible/ These guitars helped make Alive sound the way that it does and I'm most proud of this record. Out of everything I've ever released, this is the one that I really want people to hear."
