Why hire Rod Saunders?
Rod Saunders is a multi-instrumentalist from Dallas, Texas. Although his specialty is classical and fingerstyle guitar, Rod is also proficient on banjo, mandolin, bass, keyboard, and fiddle. Additionally his vocals are reminiscent of James Taylor and various folk/pop artists making for the perfect ambient/background music setting. Over the years Rod has performed in numerous venues including bluegrass festivals, churches, civic centers, performance halls, and restaurants in a total of seven states and has worked with artists like two time Grammy winner Bruce Carroll and Grammy nominee Martha Munizzi.
Rod's musical studies began at the age of eight when he started four years of classical piano lessons while also singing in his local church choir. At the age of fourteen he started on the guitar, inspired by artists like James Taylor, Jim Croce, and Gordon Lightfoot. He then began studying classical guitar at Midwestern State University in his hometown of Wichita Falls, Texas. While having a great appreciation for classical guitar, his love for other musical genres prevented him from focusing exclusively on classical and he began playing mandolin, banjo, bass, and fiddle as well. He then moved to Nashville where he played keyboard for two-time Grammy winner Bruce Carroll while also performing at the Holidome across the street from Opryland. Following his stay in Nashville he lived in Orlando, Florida where he had the opportunity to work with Grammy and Dove award nominee Martha Munizzi. Today he lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he performs and teaches while also serving as director of the Tulsa Guitar Society. He has recorded one CD "Gates of Pearl" and has a second CD of hymns in the works.
