Don’t believe what your face-tatted cousin tells you: guitar music ain’t dead.

Fender Next Sessions is a new series that showcases the sound and vision of the Fender Next Class of 2020, 25 artists expanding the world of guitar. In their debut episode, Dana Williams performs two jazz-influenced tracks and shares her thoughts on writing, vulnerability and why some songs are best performed solo. And hey, you might just recognize the location as our very own 1700 Naud (wink, wink).
