1 GRAND

AN UPCOUNTRY GUITAR STORY
[working title]

Have you ever had so many signs something was “right” that it was impossible to ignore? That’s how this project came about, and we’re honored to be working on a pitch trailer for 1 GRAND. Steve Grimes is a world-renowned luthier and musician who just happens to live a mile from our office in Kula, Maui. We were graciously introduced to him and his wife, Mary Anna, through our long-time friend and mentor, Greg Pecknold, and the rest is history. It turns out that Steve just made his 1000th instrument to be auctioned off at a celebrity gala this month – the stars aligned and here we are!

1 GRAND is a story about craft, passion, and living your best life. It’s a relatable film about the power of place, culture, and spirit that will inspire you to question your own path and encourage you to re-design your future. The film is sprinkled with performances and interviews from celebrity musicians in Hawaii and beyond. Willie Nelson plays Grimes guitars. Paul Simon is a repeat customer. Jackson Browne, Jake Shimabukuro, George Benson, and Pat Simmons adorn the shop’s “Wall of Fame”. With humor and humility, they tell us – and show us – what makes a Grimes guitar so unique and why the “luthier’s” job is so essential to their lives, and maybe yours.
