Samick Music Announces Carley Wolf as Latest Silvertone Guitars Artist

GALLATIN, TN April 9, 2015 – Samick Music Corporation, Inc. (SMC), the world’s leading stringed instrument producer, is proud to announce the addition of musician Carley Wolf to the Silvertone family of artists.

“It’s an honor to welcome Carley Wolf of The Ghost Wolves to the Silvertone family,” said Tony De La Rosa, Artist Relations/Marketing Manager, Samick Music Corporation. “The first time I heard Carley play, I knew there was something special about her. She has an unassuming musical prowess coupled with the looks of a fashion model, and a guitar tone that will rip your face off!”

In an industry where we have seen less guitar in popular music, Wolf blazes her own six-string trail, touring relentlessly and bringing some much needed guitar music to the masses.

“I’m so excited to become a Silvertone artist,” stated Carley. “I’ve always been a fan of the brand and the remakes are excellent – the same vibe as the vintage gear without the hassles of decades old equipment. I can’t wait to test my new 1478 out on the road!”

Carley is no stranger to Silvertone – she has toured for years with a vintage 1478 model as her main axe. This year she’ll hit the road with a reissue Silvertone Classic 1478, in black.

Wolf’s band The Ghost Wolves released its studio album Man, Woman, Beast in 2014 and is currently on tour in the U.S. through May, followed by a European tour in October and November.
