AN UPCOUNTRY GUITAR STORY
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.
