G3 Program Mentors

To support and develop the Gibson Generation Class of 2025, Gibson has enlisted the talents of longtime partner and Epiphone Signature Artist Emily Wolfe as the official G3 Class of 2025 Global Mentor. Wolfe has created a curriculum that will explore several tracks--Guitar Player, Songwriter, Front Person, and Triple Threat-- designed to empower each G3 member with knowledge and hands-on experience in preparation for a career in music. Gibson artist Toby Lee will continue as G3 Program Mentor for the EU and UK, and both artists will provide career guidance and mentorship to G3 members.

Emily Wolfe

Austin, TX

With blistering guitar riffs, skillful songwriting, and soulful vocals, guitarist, songwriter, and producer Emily Wolfe has been making waves with her powerful vocals and dynamic guitar skills and shows no signs of slowing down in 2023. Wolfe’s music combines elements of classic rock, blues, and alternative, creating a unique and energetic sound. She’s garnered attention for her passionate live performance and has been recognized as an emerging talent in the rock music scene. Her work and live shows have been praised as transcendent, sticky, and sweet, bad-ass, and provocative.

Now with two popular Epiphone signature guitars including the “White Wolfe” Sheraton and the Sheraton Stealth, Wolfe has been out on the road headlining shows, and supporting The Gaslight Anthem. Wolfe recently wrapped the self-produced follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2021 album Outlier, due for release in the new year.
