NEW TO OUR SESSIONS? HERE’S WHAT YOU MISSED.
Welcome to Cardboard Sessions—where intimate jam sessions turn into one-of-a-kind tracks. It’s made possible thanks to our next-level partnership with Dave Lee and Marc Wiernga, aka the dynamic duo from Signal Snowboards.
By drawing inspiration from MTV Unplugged and NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts, we introduce talented artists to our cardboard Fender Stratocaster and paper drum kit. The results? Professional musicians jamming out and laying down original tracks that’ll give you goosebumps.
Our first episode struck all the right chords, and we’re ready to do it all over again. So, prepare your speakers and get ready to be left speechless. Episode 2 with drummer Stephen Perkins and guitarist Derek Day is here.
ROCK LEGEND & RISING STAR SHRED ON OUR PAPER INSTRUMENTS.
For our latest episode, we invited the legendary and award-winning drummer, Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction, and the talented guitarist who’s quickly gaining attention from around the globe, Derek Day of Classless Act, to jam out.
For Jane’s Addiction fans, Stephen needs no introduction. He’s in a league of his own when it comes to drumming—playing with Hellflower, Rage Against the Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers. His drum skills are also featured on the Nine Inch Nails’ song, “I Do Not Want This.”
His long (and impressive) resume includes a solo project called Banyan and Hellride, the Los Angeles-based Stooges cover band.
On guitar, we have the up-and-coming musician Derek Day, the lead vocalist and guitarist for the five-man band, Classless Act. The group was officially formed in 2019 after the members connected through social media. Their sound has a vintage vibe, but brings a new, modern energy–creating pure, unadulterated rock.
With no limits and no scripts, this intimate studio session is the ultimate experience for these two–one who’s already part of rock history and the other who draws inspo from rock legends.
The energy is tangible. And the sound is electric.
DESIGNED BY OUR HANDS. MUSIC TO YOUR EARS.
These corrugated instruments are able to keep up with hour-long jam sessions thanks to our Senior Design Specialists. It’s their innovation and eye for detail that created our paper guitar and drums (and all of our other impossible cardboard creations).
Whether you’re on your laptop or phone, crank up the volume and get ready for your front row seat to undiscovered and groundbreaking music on SoundCloud. And as always, stay tuned for the next Cardboard Sessions.
