Interview with Daughter on GMAP Radio:
My daughter just released her 1st album and she produced it herself!!!! I’m music directing her live band, managing her and playing bass on a couple of her tracks on her CD.
Check her out: “Love Notes” by Rachel Yvonne.
William states, “What I love about my DNA 1350 amplifier, DNS 2×10 and DNS 1×15 is the incredible power, clarity, transparency and versatility!!! My DNA 1350 has all the flexibility and headroom that I will ever need. If drums are the heartbeat of music, then bass is the blood that gives life to the groove. With my DNA I am able to provide the foundation that I am counted on to contribute with every musical act I am called to serve. David Nordschow’s DNA bass amplification brings out the best of yours! Excellence has never been average… Neither is my DNA! From Reggae to Rock, Blues, Country, Gospel and Jazz – my DNA delivers for me every time! Every ounce of sweat that I put into playing, my DNA delivers. My DNS 2×10 alone blows away most 4x10s in the market! My DNS 1×15 can produce deep bass without any mud… High fidelity bass at it’s best! My tone is in my DNA! I also happen to be the digital designer of the faceplate of the DNA 1350 and DNA 800.”
