Owsley Stanley (born Augustus Owsley Stanley III), notorious 1960′s LSD chemist and the original Grateful Dead sound engineer died after an automobile accident in Australia on March 13, 2011, aged 76.
Between 1965 and 1967, Stanley produced more than 1.25 million doses of LSD—a catalyst for the emergence of the hippie movement during the Summer of Love in the Haight-Ashbury area, which one historian of that movement, Charles Perry, has described as "one big LSD party." He was also an accomplished sound engineer and served as the longtime sound man and financier for psychedelic rock band the Grateful Dead. (source: Wikipedia)

"I'm from Vancouver, B.C., Canada and I'm also an instrument maker and all the stringed instruments I play are made by me. I'm a lover of people like John Fahey and Robbie Basho but I've tried to distill an essence of what I like about them and makes music with my own voice. I'm always pleased if someone digs what I do and I'd love to hear what people might like or how it made them feel. I'm no promotion man and feel a bit funny blowing my own horn but I hope you might find something in what I do that you like..."
Listen to some fine acoustic mellow instrumental tracks, poem sketches with alternate/open tunings.
