Shredding The Envelope
Featuring Guitarist Dave Reffett

Guitar virtuoso Dave Reffett and his collaborative partner Nancy Taylor make up the core base of Shredding The Envelope.  On their debut disc “The Call Of The Flames” Reffett combines his unrelenting guitar shredding  with Taylor’s prose resulting in firestorm of thrashing, in your face metal.

Reffett, the son of a coal miner who   grew up in the Appalachian Mountains in Eastern Kentucky started out as a jock, until his older sister turned him on to the power of music.  Joining the school band he played tuba until a chance meeting of his teacher’s Fender Stratocaster in a dusty closet; it was love at first sight. 
Shortly thereafter his grandmother bought him his first guitar and the rest, as they say, is history.

His path would lead him to Berklee College of Music in Boston and that’s where he started assembling his who’s who list of guest appearances on “The Call Of The Flames” including Joe Stump, Michal Angelio Batio and George Lynch.

We caught up with Dave to ask him about his latest project and how it all fell into place.
