Grace Kelly: My most-inspired songs have come from very emotional times in my life. There is a recent song of mine called "Feels Like Home" that so many people in my life have had a strong reaction to. They end up telling me a lot of their personal life stories and how they relate to that song. And that song came to me at a very inspired moment. I...

A Rock Musician Hits The Streets
2019-03-11 21:56 UTC

Fur Dixon: For quite a long time, maybe 25 - 27 years, I was playing a lot of acoustic, solo (shows). But I also did a lot of busking. The reason I went off the path to more singer-songwriter stuff was because I had a child. And I just didn't have the time to have a band. So I started busking in New York City and at art festivals. And it was...

You Play Your Personality
2019-03-01 22:04 UTC

Cris: Producer Michael Knox said that you play in the studio with the same energy that you have in concerts. How do you do that? What is the key to bringing that energy into the studio?

Rich Redmond, drummer for Jason Aldean: I was just talking to my new friend, Rick. He is a DJ in Denver on one of the big stations there. And it turned out...

Standing Out As A Bass Player
2019-02-22 17:00 UTC

Cris: Compared to the drums and guitars, the bass is a low key instrument. Given that, how does one stand out as a bass player? 

Luis Espaillat, bassist for Trace Adkins: That's an interesting question depending on the music because sometimes the role of the bass is not to stand out. Quite the opposite. The way I look at it is: The...

​Cris: What was the most challenging song to create for the album "It's You"?

Joel Cummins, Umphrey's McGee: For Umphrey's McGee the creation process happens lots of ways. Sometimes it will be a couple of different people in the band who start it and then pass it off to someone else. Sometimes it will be one person who has an entire...

Fabulous Thunderbirds
2019-02-11 14:37 UTC

​I got the chance to see clients The Fabulous Thunderbirds in concert last night. Great show! Kim Wilson is a freakin' force of nature. He is 68 and he had some health problems last year, but he still brings more energy to his singing and harmonica playing than some guys in their 20s.
