"With 'Guitar Center Sessions', it all begins with the curation process. From legends like Peter Gabriel and Joe Walsh to buzzworthy up-and-comers like Gary Clark Jr. and FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS, this wide variety of musical acts creates a broad and unique musical journey simply unmatched anywhere on television," says Harcourt.
"With millions of viewers tuning in each month, it is clear that there is an audience seeking the type of quality music programming that has otherwise virtually disappeared from television in the past decade," says Dustin Hinz, director of music and entertainment marketing for Guitar Center.
"'Guitar Center Sessions' aims to fill that void while providing musicians with a world-class television platform that exposes their music to the masses, and inspires music enthusiasts and fans across the globe."
"Guitar Center and DirecTV have created a unique venue for these artists whereby the taping of these shows takes place directly on the premises at Guitar Center in Hollywood as they create a personal and intimate experience for our customers," said Christopher Long, senior vice president of original content and production, DirecTV.
"It's like a private concert and discussion that happens in your living room."
As part of its new agreement with AXS TV, encore performances from "Guitar Center Sessions" will begin airing on AXS TV this month, Monday nights at 9 p.m., bringing the series to a wider audience than ever before.

'Guitar Center Sessions' with Nic Harcourt is exactly the type of series that will resonate with our audience as our channel brings music back to television,"
