Dave Hause Interview

For someone singing sad songs, Dave Hause radiates an absurd amount of positivity and joy when playing live. I first heard of Dave’s music when he opened for Frank Turner in Boston last June, and ever since I haven’t been able to get enough. His performance he weren’t being followed by Frank, an equally dynamic […]

An Interview With JD McPherson

One of the things I love about Newport Folk Festival is “finding” a new band each year. In 2016, it was The Staves harmonies echoing across the main stage and the harbor that really took my breath away. 2017 brought me The Wild Reeds, who’s album The World We Built remains one of my favorites […]

An Interview With Teenage Fanclub

There’s something incredible about music from Scottish folks. On the surface, it seems like bands like Chvrches, Belle and Sebastian, Frightened Rabbit, and Camera Obscura, share nothing but a homeland. As you closer though, you’ll find that there’s a certain level of sincerity that shines through in their lyrics, their compositions and of course, their […]

Trying Their Best, Four White Canadians Make Their Sixth Album: An Interview with Tokyo Police Club

Editing interviews can be a real pain. The sound of your own voice becomes grating, and although the actual chat may have been lovely, rehashing the same material as yesterday and normalizing audio can be at best banal and at worst soul crushing.  When I listened back to my conversation with Graham Wright, the keyboardist […]

Naked Giants Interview

Naked Giants are a band that are as fun personally as they are musically. Getting the chance to speak with these guys was the highlight of my Valentine’s Day, mainly because it was so clear to me how much they loved their art and loved each other. Sluff, their debut record with New West, oscillates […]

Rayland Baxter Interview

Rayland Baxter is a hoot. I was lucky enough to spend some time in the Mama Ray’s van to talk to this musician about the genre bending songwriting on his new album album, Wide Awake. We also talk about cars, crashes, letting go and the Jesuits.

Kodaline Interview

Like most folks, my first interaction with Kodaline was hearing their absolutely stunning song, “All I Want”. It’s a devastatingly sad, beautiful work that leaves you wanting more. But when the single from your debut album connects with millions, is a hit and is featured in countless movies and TV Shows, it sets the bar […]

Trevor Powers Interview

Part of the joy of a new year is getting what feels like a new start. Resolutions and other efforts to redefine ourselves are usually taken up once January starts. That’s what makes the timing of this interview with Trevor Powers, the artist formerly known as Youth Lagoon, so appropriate. Trevor and I discuss his […]
