StickleAcoustics truly dates back to middle school band class (where I learned a distaste for the type of musical tradition taught in my school classroom) and my first adventures in going to underground shows in the early 90's. I volunteered as security, merch, stage hand & street-team for underground shows around the El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM punk/grunge/ska/metal scene. I was 13, just looking to get involved and to get into shows free. Shortly after, as a young self-taught musician playing in garage bands, I never had the money to pay other people to do work I could do (or learn to do) myself. I learned to maintain and repair guitars, cables & drums because my band-mates and I needed it done. I learned to record music and do graphic design because my bands wanted to put out albums. I learned to run sound because we wanted to play shows and sometimes the sound-guy didn't show up or there was none at all. I learned video production in a tech class in highschool and moved into TV production for the next couple years, but I was back at music shortly there-after and things have just kept moving since. The name StickelAcoustics actually stems from a short-lived line of plexiglass acoustic shields and speaker cabinets I was building in 2001-2002 and was quickly adopted for my recording endeavors, eBay sales screen name, guitar/speaker repair service and more. After 15 years of helping make music and video happen for so many people around the country (and a few around the world) StickleAcoustics has come to mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people and I hope to continue that unique style and tradition with my new location in Coos Bay, OR.
