In Part 1, Dan talked to Paul about how he got into music, producing and performing as Starkey, and his days in the burgeoning Philly electronic music scene. In Part 2, Paul talks about his work as a music educator, his role as the head of the music production and business departments at Community College of Philadelphia, the school's own Spring Garden Records label, and the expertise and experiences he brings to the classroom.
Dan sat down with Paul Geissinger at the studios in Community College of Philadelphia to talk Paul's music, his work as electronic artist and producer Starkey, his days producing shows as part of the Philadelphia electronic music scene with folk like Dev79, his introduction to grime and garage as it was forming in the early 00s in London, and how he helped bring it over to the states. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week, focusing on Paul's work as an educator and all the great work he's doing at CCP, and their in-house label, Spring Garden Records.
Dan talks with Keith Marlowe of The Miners (and formerly of Tornado 5) about their new record, 'Megunticook', alt country from the 80s to today, the Philly alt-rock scene in the 90s, becoming a frontman, and the joys of the current vinyl shortage. 'Megunticook' is available now everywhere you get digital music.
Dan gets to talk to the whole Keely Sibilia crew: Keely, producer Robby Webb, and keyboardist Dan Finn. The band discusses their new LP, 'Death Of A Romantic', how they went into making the record with no material at all, the ups and downs of music school (the three are all UArts alums), growing into an adult from a 20-something, and why they love making music in Philly.
Lisa Flynn has been part of the Philly music scene going way back, from growing up in Northeast Philly, booking the Trocadero and North Star Bar, to her bands Workhorse III and Lisa Christ Superstar. Dan and Lisa talk about her new LP, 'Soundtrack Of the Floating World', (produced by Joe Nicolo), guitars, being a nurse during COVID, Trocadero balcony shows, and more.
