Producer/Editor of This Must Be the Gig
This Must Be the Gig is joined by Netta. The Israeli artist won the esteemed Eurovision contest in 2018, sealing the victory with the brilliant and quirky "Toy". Utilizing a loop station to accentuate her resonant, powerful voice, Netta has since dominated stages around the world and seen her music spread like wildfire, including "Toy" becoming a massive force on TikTok. Between a video series called Netta's Office and a viral cover of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" for Disney, the Tel Aviv-based singer has found appropriately unique ways to keep creative and connected with fans through quarantine. In this chat, Lior spoke with Netta about connecting to the Beatles in school, what it was like participating in Eurovision, her appearance in the Will Ferrell film based on the contest, recording her new album, and so much more.

This Must Be the Gig is joined by Black Thought of The Roots.  Long before he became the voice of one of the most essential hip-hop groups of a generation, Tariq Trotter started performing on the streets of Philadelphia with another young man named Ahmir Thompson. Not long later, the duo stood at the fore of a massively influential band, now going by Black Thought and ?uestlove. The Roots made a splash quickly, kicking off in the early '90s and reaching the platinum echelon with 1999's classic Things Fall Apart. That strength has only continued to grow for decades, with Black Thought's diverse list of credits now including The Roots' role as Jimmy Fallon's house band on Late Night. Now, Black Thought is set to release his third solo project, Streams of Thought Vol. 3: Cain and Abel. Due October 2nd, the record spans a vast array, showcasing Thought's unique vocal skill alongside production from Sean C and features including Pusha T and Portugal the Man. In this chat, Lior spoke with Black Thought about what he and ?uestlove learned while performing on the street, how the pandemic has shifted his pre-show routines at Fallon, setting Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as a goal in the Roots' rise, covering Debarge as a teenager, and so much more.

This Must Be the Gig is joined by Fergal Lawler and Noel Hogan of The Cranberries. The group formed in 1989 in Limerick, Ireland, along with Noel's brother Mike on bass and later joined by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan. Over the course of eight albums and 20 years, the group wrote some of the biggest, most memorable sing-along anthems of the '90s, from "Linger" to "Dreams" to "Zombie" to "Salvation", becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Tragically, the group's most recent record, 2019's In the End, turned out to be their last, as Dolores sadly passed away prior to its completion. But now, Fergal and the Hogan brothers are honoring their late friend and continuing the strength of their legacy with a 25th anniversary reissue of The Cranberries' second album, No Need to Argue. In addition to the original album, the package will include B-sides, demos, live recordings, a slew of unreleased photos, an essay from the band's archivist, and more.. Lior spoke with Fergal and Noel about looking back at No Need to Argue at 25 years, the beloved song "Yesterday's Gone" making the cut after only previously appearing on MTV Unplugged, seeing Irish heroes U2 as teens, the power of a good cover, and so much more. Head here for more info on The Cranberries. Head here to pre-order the reissue of No Need to Argue.
