Dane Markanson/ Glass Cloud
Inspired by his punk rock and metal roots, Dane Markanson first picked up a guitar at the age of 14. By the time he was 18 he was already a touring musician — Since then he has been on the road with several bands. In 2006, to further his music education, he joined the Guitar Institute of Technology at Musicians Institute (M.I.), where he later became an instructor/clinician. Upon graduating, he continued to tour while teaching guitar clinics for M.I. and Revolver Magazine on the Mayhem Festival for 3 consecutive years.
Dane started using the EMG 707Xs when he became the touring guitarist for Volumes, shortly after he joined Glass Cloud, where conveniently his new band mate, Josh Travis, was using the EMG 808X and 909X.
When not touring, Dane focuses his time on audio and video production in his home studio in Los Angeles, CA.
