It all started with two high-school kids in the mid-90's. Two brothers whose paths would diverge and yet lead to the same destination up the same mountain.
One, fatefully gifted a guitar for Christmas after being seen digging through his parent's crates of old records. The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix eventually were gateway drugs to a degree in Studio Music & Jazz. Black Sabbath, Steve Vai, and countless other legends were constant companions. Over 500 live performances later, plus studio recordings and being the premiere guitar instructor in the city, he was primed to be a core contributor to Ledger Note.
The other, an academic and computer nerd with a flair for rap lyrics and beat production. More influenced by their mother's love of rhythm and blues than their father's interest in rock and roll, he began writing, producing, recording, and mixing his own albums, selling copies worldwide thanks to the rapidly expanding leverage of the internet. His experience of building his own artist website and a forum for his sub-genre at large in the late 1990's led to a career in online marketing and the subsequent founding of Ledger Note in 2015.
