The Matthew Wengerd Trio captured by David Dickey

The Matthew Wengerd Trio captured by David Dickey

Hi.

I’m Matthew, the big dreamer at A Fine Press.

I’m the one in the middle. And that thing I’m playing?  That’s my double bass.  See, I’m a jazz bassist by education (did you know they give advanced degrees in jazz?!) and have been playing since middle school.

When we collaborate on your stationery, it’s a little like playing jazz.  We’ll improvise and rearrange.  You’ll start a riff and we’ll run with it.  However the process, you can guarantee it’ll never happen just like that again.

And that’s what’s special about a fine press.  Our custom inviting experiences will always be one-of-a-kind and our made-to-order Humble Beginnings line is not like anything you’ll see elsewhere.

If you play, bring your axe to one of our consultations; we’ll jam a little while and then get down to business.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” text_align=”left” box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_text_separator title=”A WARNING” text_in_box=”yes” text_position=”center” box_padding=”25″ box_border_style=”solid” line_color=”#4f4f4f” line_width=”500″ line_thickness=”2″ line_border_style=”solid” up=”25″ animation=”animate_width” line_dots=”no” title_color=”#ffffff” box_background_color=”#4f4f4f” box_margin=”10″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” padding_top=”50″ padding_bottom=”50″ box_shadow_on_row=”no”][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/6″][vc_single_image image=”20617″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_circle_2″ hover_animation=”no”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/6″][vc_column_text]I’d like to tell you that Pierre DuCharme, Lakeland Ledger photographer, captured me in a sneeze in this photo. But the truth is, it’s just bassface. It’s a serious affliction that affects all bassists to one degree or another. I have a pretty severe case of it.

If you drop by the studio during a particularly intense brainstorming, you’ll likely find me in a very similar state.

And now you’ve been warned.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
