Shane Theriot – even if you don’t know the name, chances are you’ve seen or heard him.  For the past few years, he’s been the guitarist and musical director for both Hall & Oates and Live From Daryl’s House.  At the age of 25 he started an 8-year stint with the Neville Brothers.  His compositions have been heard on ESPN, MTV, VH1, Food Network and others.  He’s pretty much either toured with, recorded with or shared a stage with a who’s who of New Orleans legends.  He has a series of instructional books and dvds.  Has written columns for and been featured in several guitar magazines.  And in 2015, he even won a Grammy for producing Jo-El Sonnier’s album, “The Legacy.”

Here’s a partial list of the artists that Shane has recorded and/or performed with: The Neville Brothers, Willie Nelson, Dr. John, Jewel, Beyonce, Rickie Lee Jones, Hall and Oates, Boz Scaggs, Madeleine Peyroux, Larry Carlton, LeAnn Rimes, John Waite, Branford Marsalis, Leni Stern, Sam Moore, Nick Nolte, Gavin DeGraw, Aaron Neville, Ben Folds, Amos Lee, The SYN (with Chris Squire and Alan White from YES), Little Feat, Sammy Hagar, Forest Whitaker and Harry Shearer.

I was lucky enough to get a few minutes to catch up with Shane and talk about all the “good stuff!”  Gear, recording, touring…  Enjoy!
