Episode 157: Stephen Grisham Barber

hello love muffins! i hope you're doing well. digging into the week. i am. it's been pretty cold the last couple of days, so i haven't been running. it makes me feel lazy. there's a treadmill in the gym at my apartments, but i just can't do the treadmill. i get really bored, i can't tell how far i'm really going and the whole time, i just wish i was outside. hopefully it'll warm up. i saw paula nelson play last night with special guest, todd v. wolfson. it was really good. i think i'm going to try to get her on the show. i was going to ask her last night, but i had to leave before they finished. she was really good and seems like a sweetheart. i'll keep you updated...

my guest for episode 157 is composer/arranger/multi-instrumentalist, stephen grisham barber. i love stephen. i met him at some point in the late 90's when he was working with alejandro escovedo. i have hung out with him from time to time and i've always wanted to sit down and talk to him about his life and career. i asked him to come by and tell me about his journey, and being the sweetheart that he is, he did. we talk about his talented family, including author john grisham, growing up in west texas, making music with the first eric johnson vehicle, the electromagnets, moving to new york and working with david byrne, keith richards, gilberto gil and many more. we talk about all of stephen's amazing projects in classical, jazz, rock and film scoring. stephen isn't just an incredible artist, he's a great hang. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

ciao! -jg
