At age 17, he recorded his debut album Out of Nothing at Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studios. Palmer's playing has been recognized internationally, and his second album, due to be released this summer, is again being produced by Ackerman.

Gabriella Quevedo4:00 p.m.

The daughter of an Argentinean guitarist, Swedish fingerstyle guitarist Gabriella Quevedo began playing at age 12 after being inspired by the fingerstyle players she saw on YouTube. Eventually she started uploading her own videos, which have garnered nearly 40 million views, and she has played with Tommy Emmanuel and other world-class players. She was also featured on Guitar World's website for her arrangement of the Eagles' "Hotel California," during which she played the vocal melody, guitar and bass line, and some percussion.

James TW5:00 p.m.

James TW is no ordinary teenager. The soulful 18-year-old British singer-songwriter gained notoriety through YouTube on the strength of his unique sound and deft guitar playing. His music showcases an undeniable talent that reflects both technical aptitude and a voracious will to learn. James's dedication to his craft has clearly paid off, resulting in a distinct blues and jazz-infused sound that recalls singer-songwriters John Mayer and Jamie Cullum, two of his influences. James is equally capable of delivering ballads reminiscent of Ed Sheeran, another artist who has impacted his musical development. James was recently signed to Island Records and counts pop sensation Shawn Mendes as a fan of his playing. Learn more at
