About Frontman Philosophy

Hi, I’m Lev, the founder of Frontman Philosophy. So, a little about me

I grew up in the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas. So, naturally, I was bound to be a musician. From a very young age, I was fascinated by the guitar. I would even perform living room concerts for my family featuring myself and a toy plastic guitar. I can still remember the feeling of unboxing my first Fender Squier and plugging it into the amp. I was hooked.

Over the years, I became classically trained and competed in classical guitar competitions all over the country. I have also recorded several albums and performed countless shows in various genres, including indie pop, alternative, jazz fusion, and heavy metal. Guitar was my first love, but I also play bass, drums, and piano.

A Site for Musicians and Music Geeks

Ever since I pulled a CD of Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run out of my stocking at 9 years old, I have been in love with music. Everything from buying my first guitar to attending my first music festival and playing my first live concert are core memories that will stick with me for the rest of my life. 

Frontman Philosophy isn’t simply a blog for musicians and guitar players but a blog for music lovers and enthusiasts as well. I publish all types of music content on my blog, but here are some of the things you’ll find on the site:

  • Reviews of instruments and equipment
  • Facts and stats about the music industry
  • Concert outfit ideas for various genres
  • Roundups of the best musicians in various categories
  • Guides on to learn guitar or bass
  • Lists of the best easy songs to play on guitar

Frontman Philosophy for Musicians

I know guitars like the back of my hand, so I want to share my expertise and knowledge that could save novice guitarists hours of practice and research! This is where Frontman Philosophy comes in. This website is what I wish I had had access to when I first started playing. My goal is for this site to act as a one-stop shop for all questions, big and small, that a guitarist, bassist, drummer, or sound engineer may have. Frontman Philosophy will give you a unique perspective on your instrument and playing style to help you become a better musician.

Frontman Philosophy for Music Enthusiasts

Beyond learning guitar, Frontman Philosophy is also an excellent place for music lovers. Need advice on what to wear to the next Beyonce concert? Wanting to brush up on your music history and learn about some of your favorite musicians? I’ve got you covered!

Frontman Philosophy is a music site geared towards any person interested in music. In fact, my ultimate goal is to spark the interest of other music geeks like me.

Gear Testing

In today’s day and age, there is an overload of products, making it challenging to distinguish the awesome gear from the… well, not-so-awesome gear. Trust me, I have made the mistake of purchasing a guitar for an unbelievable price only to find that I got what I paid for…

One of my main goals with Frontman Philosophy is to do the heavy lifting for you. I’ll test guitars, basses, pedals, cables, and pretty much any type of gear so that you don’t have to! 

When testing guitar equipment, there are several factors and features I’ll look at:

  • Value for price
  • Sound quality
  • Playability
  • Features
  • Brand recognition

Testing for these different qualities helps me rule out the “not-so-great” and determine which products are the best of the bunch!

My Promise

I’ll never publish anything that I don’t believe I’m an expert at. I also only write reviews on equipment and accessories I own, have used before, or have personally tested. I promise to always give my honest personal experience and opinion. I want you to love your music experience, so I only recommend stuff I truly enjoy.
