In the conclusion, Dan and Katie finally get around to where Katie came from, how she got involved in the Philly music scene, and that she still gets nervous that she's going to forget the words to cover songs. She even turns it around and interviews Dan for a minute or so, and the two even share their takes on the night they met at Ardmore Music Hall for the Robert Hunter tribute.
Amidst the isolation and distancing, Dan managed to connect with You Do You/Roberta Faceplant front-woman Katie Feeney via the internet, and man, were they happy to talk to each other! Part 1 includes talk about notebooks, missing playing shows, trolling Sly Fox Brewing for 8 years on Twitter, and going way in over your head when you're young and ambitious.
Bo and Mitch are one of Philly's music power couples. Both have extensive background in session playing, live bands, songwriting, producing, and mentoring. Bo has worked in NYC, Nashville, and beyond. Mitch is known in Philly for his part in Stereo League, BAM, and as a live bassist for Digable Planets. They've just launched Rebel Joy Music Educators, a service that brings high-end music lessons and coaching right to your computer. In a time of social distancing, Rebel Joy offers lessons, songwriting help, production skills, and one-on-one mentoring. It was a blast to talk to them, Mitch was one of the first guests on the show back in early 2015 (ep#9).
At the end of February, Brett Kull and JD Beck of Rise Twain came over to talk and play. It was a great time then, and going back and listening in lieu of releasing it, it was a great time to just hear it again. Brett and JD talk about their new record, working together on and off for a decade or so, their particular approaches to writing and performing, and how they challenge and impress each other on a regular basis.
