Lonny Eagleton on SoundBetter

I am a session guitarist, and touring musician for Hollywood Records artist Shawn Hook. I have performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Today Show, the MMVAs, the Juno Awards, and am an official endorsed artist of Orange Amps, D'Addario Strings, 64 Audio, and Mission Engineering.

As a studio musician, I have worked with some of the industry's top producers including Louis Biancaniello (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin), and Brian Howes (Nickelback, Hinder, Daughtry). With nearly a decade of studio experience, I have performed sessions in pretty much every style imaginable, and know how to deliver a clean take while still retaining the punch and feel that will bring a song to life.

Last year I played guitar on Kate Morgan's major label release "Extra Ordinary" which was featured on a television commercial for the Global Media reality show Hockey Wives and which charted at number 19 on the Canadian pop charts. I love seeing my artists succeed. Let's work together to make your song the next big thing!

    Lonny gave me multiple options for what I needed on my client's track. The worst problem was that they were all incredible and we had such a hard time choosing which riff we wanted to use. I couldn't recommend Lonny more! Stoked to work with him again!

    Lonny is a total pro at recording guitar parts.
    He knew exactly what our songs needed and was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole experience. As a new artist, he made me feel at ease and was great at suggesting melodies to compliment my songs and leading my creative process. I would definitely work with him again!

    Hired Lonny after watching him perform with a local artist. I was blown away by his live performance, and was thrilled to find out he also did professional studio sessions. Our business together was efficient and he practically read my mind in regards to what I was looking for, musically. If you need top grade guitar tracks, contact Lonny now!

    Lonny is an amazing guitar player! He makes my job easier by achieving great tone, writing parts that really suit the songs we are working on, and being a genuinely nice and easy going person. I'd highly recommend hiring Lonny for your next recording session or project. He's also a killer live player with an amazing stage presence!

    Lonny is a total pleasure on and off the road. We've known each other for a while and have toured together twice in arena environments. Every night he plays his butt off, is a pro on and off stage and always looks the part. Hit him up for tours and studio work!

    Lonny is killer! He's a fantastic player, really nice guy, gets things done fast, and always communicates clearly with the client. If you have the chance to hire him, do it!
