In 2016 The Vigil released their debut album ‘Save Our Souls’ produced by Nigel Pulsford from the band Bush to positive reviews and yielded three singles.

Olly has had a life long passion for collecting guitars and in 2014 he formed Guitarsmith’s which specialises in used, rare, unique and desirable instruments. The philosophy behind the company is that we only deal only in the instruments and gear worthy of the stage with an undeniable rock n’ roll attitude and sound. We hope you like what we have to offer and hopefully you will find the next bit of gear that will bring you a special bit of musical mojo!
