Short Stories features one of the finest collections of guest artists ever assembled.

These artists include 9-time Grammy-Award Nominated saxophonist Gerald Albright, Grammy-Award Winning guitarist Jim “Kimo” West, Grammy-Award Nominated trumpet/flugelhorn player Jeff Oster, the truly iconic bassist/composer Michael Manring, jazz bass legend Vail Johnson, film/television/session legend guitarist Carl Rydlund, multi-platinum selling composer/pianist Jeff Franzel and chart-topping ambient guitarist John Gregorius. The guest list doesn’t end there with additional appearances by Nashville studio elite Joe Cook (guitar), Edward Freytag (percussion), Stephen Davis (guitar) and Tommy Ogle (piano and organ) plus appearances by Wayfarer Records own Dave Luxton (label founder/guitar), Billy Denk (guitar)and Sean O’Bryan Smith (bass).
