Born in Colombia and raised in rural PA, Laura's journey to Philadelphia has been a unique one. Laura and Dan talk about growing up with music in the house (her brother was a classical bassist), being a woman in the jazz scene, all the risque moments of 'Anything Goes', and her new record, 'Heart'.
Danny Black (Good Old War, Joshua Radin) has a new record, 'Black Ryno', out now. Danny and Dan talk about the LP, working with Ryan Zimmaro on drums (the 'Ryno' of 'Black Ryno), lots of guitars, and how working on the record during the first months of the pandemic helped keep him even.
Dan talks to Maggie Poulos, founder of Mixtape Media, all about the joys of being a music publicist. They get into her time working in NYC on the music industry, coming back to the Philly area, the importance of publicity when trying to get tot he next level (and how it's not simply a silver bullet), and how hard it is to burn a CD these days. Maggie's clients include Philly artists like The Dawn Drapes, Ali Awan, Mighty Joe Castro, Kirby Sybert, and more.
Drew's back to talk to Dan after 5 years since his first appearance. The two discuss hot jazz (Drew's area of performance and expertise), figuring out how to livestream, Drew's virtual variety show which draws in talent from all over the globe, his newest record, 'Just The Trio Us, Vol. 1', and how one stays relevant in a time when live performances are few and far between.
