ARTISTS

You all need to know these folks! They are the reason Footjunkie went from a single mat made on a whim to a deliberately mass produced item aimed at addressing a very underserved problem.
 
Every one one of these pro-level musicians not only made it clear to us that sustain pedal creep was a real issue but they also became a part of our test group to make sure Footjunkie would be an obvious professional solution.

Heidi Burson

Performing Artist, Composer: Website

These influences, coupled with her own life experiences and a generous dusting of wry humor, have helped to forge a voice and style that is uniquely fascinating.
