Stephen Chesney


English born guitarist Stephen Chesney grew up in a musical household in Essex not far from the Sonuus homebase of Cambridge in East Anglia. Picking up the guitar at age 6 has given him plenty of time to go through every bit of gear imaginable along the way.

After moving to the United States in the mid 2000's, Stephen toured with a nationally touring act playing venues from House of Blues to Arenas and festivals across the US.

In 2012 Stephen relocated to Los Angeles where he has jammed with the likes of drummer Chris Frazier (Steve vai/Whitesnake) vocalist Eric Dover (Slash's Snakepit/Jellyfish) Matt Laug (Christina Augilera/Alanis Morrisette/Slash) and more. However, most importantly he began work on his first solo effort, assembling a band fronted by Warrant/Cry of Love/Lynch Mob vocalist Robert Mason along with Ace Frehley/Brides of Destruction drummer Scot Coogan, Edgar Winter Band bassist Koko Powell, Slash/Loggins & Messina Sax player Jim Wheeler and Ray Charles' trumpet player Mitch Manker.

Both live and in the studio, Stephen now uses the Sonuus Wahoo as his Wah of choice along with the i2M musicport to help compose, arrange and orchestrate various instrumentation for not only his songs, but other artists that he works along side as a producer such as Cee-Lo Green/2ne1 guitarist and songwriter Sharon Aguilar.

What Stephen says about the Sonuus Wahoo:

"I've played through so many wah pedals be they stocked or modded, but ultimately this is the first time I felt control over a whole range of frequences that were never quite opened up for me before in the way I use the wah to talk through notes. Its adaptable, user friendly, built like a truck and has left me with no reason to use any of the other pedals that will now be collecting dust around my studio."
