Emmy-Winning performing and recording artist Jeff Tassin invited me to his lair, Jeff Tassin Studios, for an awesome conversation about his life in the music and television business. We discussed his start in the early days, his various recording and performing projects, his numerous awards, his studio, and his current role as producer and mentor to many talented musicians. His latest project, keeping up on its seventh year anniversary (Oct 30), is his Songwriter's showcase, a weekly gig that gives artists a forum to get their material to the world and play in front of people and work on their craft in real time. After the interview, I headed to the show and captured some great audio that will be featured in its own episode in a couple of weeks. So you'll have to stay tuned for that one!

I'm joined by Chris Adkins, who plays in the trifecta of awesomeness consisting of Acoustic project The Royal Pain, melodic punk outfit Phasers On Kill, and the legendary hometown and international heroes MxPx. Co-hosted by my studio wizard friend Bradly Miranda, we have an awesome hangout session and discuss how Chris manages to juggle all three acts and maintain his sanity. We also get an epic solo acoustic performance which features an amazing Descendants cover as well as two other killer cuts, one of which features Brad on the nut crusher (cajon) and Brad's brother Brian on bass. There is also video that will be coming real soon!
This episode also was originally aired for the On The Edge podcast, but was always intended to be a part of Misery Point. When it became apparent there woud be a delay in the Misery Point Launch, I chose to air the episode on On The Edge so that Chris could share with his peeps! So pulling double duty for two shows! If you didn't get a chance to check it out yet, here's your chance! Thanks again to Bradly Miranda for mixing the performance portion of the episode!

During a recent show at Club 7, I got to hang out backstage with Whiskey River, an absolutely epic Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. An awesome discussion about the band, what they're about, what sets them apart from other tribute bands, and what their ultimate goal is. I was able to capture some pretty good live audio, so be sure to check out the three songs at the end of the interview, including an absolutely jaw dropping rendition of the most famous of all Skynyrd songs. Due to the location of the interview, the background is a little noisy, but that just adds to the awesomeness! Be sure to check them out on all their social media pages! And if you get a chance to see them live, do it!!!
Be sure to check them ot with Randy Hansen On October 20 at Emerald Downs!!!
