Martin Guitars announced that Chris Cornell will be joining it’s family of ambassadors, and will be representing the famous guitars on stage and in the studio. Cornell’s preferred acoustic guitars are a D-28 Marquis and a DCPA4 Rosewood.
“Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions”, Wrote the Martin crew on the company’s site, “An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless the chief architect of the 90’s grunge movement. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy award winning musician, Golden Globe nominee and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter, lyricist, and founder of Seattle trailblazers, Soundgarden“.
It was recently reveled that Cornell started working a new solo album. The album will probably be released sometime this year but no other details were published.
