ADAM HAWLEY, the funky young guitarist who has already topped Billboard's Smooth Jazz chart five times, plugs in his favorite Paul Reed Smith, jams with me, and reflects on his evolution as a musician. He also talks about what it was like earning a doctorate in music and becoming a sideman to Jennifer Lopez, Joss Stone, the Manhattan Transfer, and countless other headlining vocal acts — including his wife, Kat Hawley. I also poke a little fun at Adam by getting him to explain the epic case of "champagne problems" he related to me when we were chatting in the hall one day at Musicians Institute. This episode is brought to you by Guitar Player magazine and guitarplayer.com. Thanks for listening. Enjoy!
