Me and my guitar: Mark Morton, Lamb Of God

Mark Morton is a busy man in 2020 – hot on the heels of last year's debut solo album Anesthetic he's already got a new acoustic EP out called Ether ow now on Rise Records. It sees him moving into folk and country territory while also paying respects to Pearl Jam (a cover of Black) and The Black Crowes with guest Lzzy Hale helping him on a version of She Talks To Angels.

It turns out his Guild D-55 dreadnought acoustic was a key to it, as he explains to us in this video.
