“When I started, some friends and I lived in a warehouse loft, and we had a lot of empty space that we used to simply mess around and make things for the loft. The first things I made for the place included a sliding barn door that lead into the kitchen, a bathroom vanity, and a coffee table.”

“About half of the projects require recycled wood, and the other half I use a local source that sells FSC certified wood.”

“The Liberate BT is the perfect speaker for the studio. There are a few rooms inside the studio space, so I can take the Liberate to whichever room I am working in. There is also a rooftop on the building, so I take it up there as well to catch a break. Wherever I go in the studio, the Liberate BT comes with.”

Music Connects: Karl Watson

unnamed-3

My name is Karl Watson. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up in such a place inspired me to be creative and skateboarding became my platform of expression. It provides freedom to be yourself unlike many organized sports.

This abundance of freedom has proven to be detrimental to some. That’s why I chose to Live Marley at a very young age and to express the positive aspects of life and skateboarding through music with a message.

#MusicConnects friends, families and people around the world. Life without music would be a world of white, black and grey. Add some color to your life by listening to music.
