Music On Your Own Terms 091 - Tylor Ketchum - Best Of The Worst Kind

This episode I chat to Tylor Ketchum, front man and namesake of the band Tylor and The Train Robbers. Tylor tells us how he got into music, how he approaches songwriting, and how he is pivoting to make a living while being unable to tour. We also learn about the family members in his band, how he met his wife, and find out about Tylor's connection to real life train robber Black Jack Ketchum.

Music On Your Own Terms 082 - Carolyn Sills & Gerard Egan - A Perfect Combo

After playing their song "Bad For You" on episode 67 with David Dennis, I had to get The Carolyn Sills Combo on the podcast for an interview. Namesake Carolyn and her husband Gerard, the guitar player for the band, share their history in music, working for the Santa Cruz Guitar Co., and what it means to be able to live a life dedicated to music. We hear about their life's journey from college, living in New York and touring Europe, to moving to California and forming the current group. I truly enjoyed getting to know Carolyn and Gerard, they impart some really valuable wisdom, and we also nerd out on gear!

We hear about life on the road, endorsement deals, and what it means to be signed to a record label in today's DIY world. In addition, Simone graciously shares her experiences with chronic migraines, and how she manages practicing and playing shows, along with getting the word out about the organization Migraine Australia, as well as the condition itself.

Music On Your Own Terms 074 - The McGrath Project - LA Story

This episode I talk to three members of The McGrath Project, namesake Gary McGrath, Jonathan Moore and Jonathan McNary, a Fort Worth based band that is about to release a concept album influenced by albums such as Pink Floyd's The Wall, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Gary discusses moving to LA to learn studio engineering and becoming a session guitar player, touring with some big names from past decades, and returning to his hometown of Fort Worth to form a new version of the McGrath Project and record new music. We learn from both Jonathan's, about how they got started on their respective instruments, and the amount of dedication that has lead them to pursue a full time career in music.

Music On Your Own Terms 064 “Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes”

July 6, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 064 - Isbjörg - Pianos, Prog And Hiding Toes

I recently stumbled upon a cover video of a song by the amazing Australian band Toehider. Being floored by the musicianship of the guys playing the song, I had to check their band out, and was immediately hooked on their sound. Isbjörg are a piano driven prog band, based in Aarhus, Denmark, and the more I listen to their music, the more I feel I am going to become a superfan. The guys discuss the history of the band, how they write and talk about some innovative ways in which they have gained fans and won a spot playing a major Danish festival. We also hear about the culture of Denmark's live scene, how they overcame losing pivotal members of the band, and what the future holds once the COVID situation is over.
