Episode 9: Chris Kasper

Philadelphia folk artist Chris Kasper has a pre-show drink with me at Little Town in NYC.  On the road with the Wood Brothers, Chris takes a guess at why artists from Amos Lee to Tristan Prettyman choose to bring him along on tour.  He details the entire process of his latest album,Bagabones, from workshopping tunes in a primitive cabin in upstate NY to the finishing touches that were funded via PledgeMusic.  He also tells what makes a great cover song, and champions the healing power of music.

Dan "Lebo" Lebowitz of ALO has a beer with me at the Wythe Hotel's Rooftop Bar in Brooklyn, NY.  Having just played a show at Brooklyn Bowl with his latest side project Incidental Animals, he explains the nuances of performing with improvisational groups like Everyone Orchestra and Kimockowitz, as well as backing singer-songwriters like Brett Dennen and Jack Johnson.  Lebo reveals how an interest in jazz led to his discovery of world music in college, and why it was important for ALO to establish their Hot Tub Club fan service.

Episode 6: Beat Radio

Brian Sendrowitz a.k.a. Beat Radio joins me for happy hour at the Churchill in New York.  A self-proclaimed "dad rocker," he explains that having a day job and a supportive family actually allows him the freedom to make the kind of music that he wants to make.  He also discusses the difficulties of crowdfunding, what it was like being a music blogger's darling in the early days of blogging, and how he found inspiration in a certain Swedish pop star.
