Lia comes from a background of musical theater and acting, but found that songwriting gave her the chance to be whatever she wanted to be. Dan and Lia talk about her life on stage from a young age, her transition into a singer-songwriter, her new EP 'I Am Kyros', and how she learned to stop letting the "journey of success' define her. The two discuss not taking every gig that pops up, acknowledging what about being a musician you don't like, and a love of gigs that end before 11pm.
Dan and Kirby get right down to it: their isolation, the crushing blow all their 2020 plans took, and Kirby's first solo album, 'Happy People Make Happy Things'. Kirby talks about making a record by hitting up against his own limitations, and how years of collaborating on other people's music gave him a big crowd to choose from when it came to finishing his own.
Rockabilly dynamo/graphic artist/avid reader Joe Castro talks to Dan about working with Brian McTear on his newest LP, 'Come On Angels' (with most of legendary Philly punk band Thorazine) and the many epiphanies that transpired. They also talk Love, Ted Hawkins, making music videos at home, Philly auteur Bob Sweeney, and how to play old-time rock n' roll without making it a museum piece. Photo by Fear The Skull
Add Jefferson Berry to the list of people Dan has "met" but not really met, y'know? Great conversation about his new record, 'Double Deadbolt Logic', his California upbringing, working in radio in the 80s and 90s, and teaching government and economics to the students that the Philly school system has cast aside.
