Recently, I sat down with Niels Hanne to discuss, among other things, what he’s been up to during the lockdown, his newest music, his thoughts on the music scene going forward, and what he’s looking forward to the most once COVID-19 breaks.
While it’s hard to put a finger on any one sound that defines “American music,” the compositions of Bill Toms are as close a template as any.
Jeff Aug is the mastermind behind the thunderous, raging beast that is Ape Shifter. With two albums under their belt and another in the works, the future beyond the COVID-19 pandemic looks pretty bright for the band.
Danny Golden doesn’t quite remember how he ended up in Austin, TX. There were a few years in Colorado playing Bluegrass banjo, a stint in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA writing and forming his style, and couch surfing in Brooklyn while making his first album.
NYC is teeming with amazing, young, and hungry Jazz artists right now, and I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with many of them. Ioana Vintu is one of those artists, but with a slightly new spin.
Today I’ve got Logan Hammon of Small Crush with us for an interview. Logan has a long history in music; growing up around her Dad, Jason Hammon, and his band Dance Hall Crashers, Logan learned early that music was not only in her heart but in her blood.
Julez (Jules Batterman) and her trusty rhythm section, The Rollerz (Rachel David & Steve Donofrio), still retain a charming old-school tone in their songs, their offering is also compelling and modern.
Today I’ve got Tom Bellamy of the UK-based Indie band, Losers. Among other things, we discuss their new music, how the group came together, the making of the new record, Tom’s early influences, some of his favorite records, and a whole lot more.
Veteran Indie and Punk rocker Steve Almaas is with us today for a chat. Steve has a new record out called Everywhere You’ve Been.
Today I have veteran Alt/Indie rocker and drummer William Goldsmith with us. William is a founding member of Sunny Day Real Estate and was also the original drummer for the Foo Fighters. Present-day, William is with his group, Assertion, who has a wonderful new record out called Intermission.
