Jericho Woods members Jory Hutchens, fiddler, and Paul Priest, bassist, sealed an endorsement deal with NS Design after reconnecting with the company at the Summer NAMM conference in Nashville, TN. Paul will be booming out their “Rural Countricana” hits with the NS CR Radius Bass Guitars while Jory will be burning up the fiery strings of the CR5 Violin.
“I’ve known Paul for close to a decade when he was playing our upright basses,” says NS Design Artist Releations Manager Corey Redonnett. “Keeping tabs on him and his career via social media, I was excited to see and hear about his new adventure with Jericho Woods. When he approached me at NAMM, it was like an old high school buddy stopping by. It was a no-brainer getting the RADIUS bass into his hands, I knew he’d love it! Meeting Jory and having him interested in the NS fiddles just made more sense, with the size stages they are performing on, NS electric violins are perfect for him. We at NS are very excited about our partnership AND friendship with the guys in Jericho Woods. Music for the heart, from the heart with HEART! We wish them the utmost success and look forward to hearing and seeing great music from them in the future.”
“I’ve known Corey since, I was on the road with the Kati Penn band,” says Paul. “When we stopped by the booth at NAMM, I asked if I could borrow a bass for our gig in Birmingham later that night. Corey was open to the idea and it just sounded so good that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity share these instruments with our fans.”

“I heard about NS from Paul, but it wasn’t until I used the NXT Violin in an Electro-Harmonix tutorial at NAMM that I truly understood what they could do,” says Jory. “After I used a CR Violin on our gig that night, I just couldn’t give it up. We’re very fortunate to be a part of the NS Design artist team.”
