NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 20, 2011) More than 10 years have passed since the first All Access magazine was published by Yamaha Corporation of America, and now we are proud to debut our celebratory anniversary issue. The current issue, available online and in select stores, lives up to its description as the backstage guide to the world of Yamaha by providing behind the scenes details from some of the photo shoots.
From Ray Charles and Elton John to Norah Jones and Alicia Keys, All Access has truly highlighted some of the biggest stars in the music business. But All Access also served as an outlet to showcase up-and-coming artists along with the superstars that aren't on center stage, such as the guitarists, music directors, keyboardists, and drummers who are so critical to the creation of the music.
"All Access is truly a joy for us to create. It gives us a chance to honor the talented musicians who choose to play Yamaha, and for that we are forever grateful," comments Chris Gero VP of Yamaha Entertainment Group. "We look forward to creative the next 10 years' worth of memories and photographs."
The recently revamped online version of All Access magazine is now being joined by a newly designed www.YamahaAllAccess360.com, the site that houses the behind-the-scenes videos from the photo shoots.
Pick up the special 10 Year Anniversary issue at Summer NAMM or at local musical instrument dealers such as Guitar Center. Or visit www.YamahaAllAccess.com to see the entire spectrum of articles and photography since the debut of the magazine.
