Featuring guitarists Perry Smith, John Storie and Will Brahm, NWGG performs classic pop covers, jazz standards and exciting originals in an innovative style that highlights rhythm, beauty and virtuosity through combining acoustic and electric guitars.

Smith and Storie founded the group 10 years and today they continue to tour as a trio with Brahm throughout the United States and abroad. Their music is regularly featured on NPR and jazz radio stations, while their repertoire is performed throughout the country by college and high school guitar programs.
