new york city, just like i pictured it...
hello folks! so i woke up at 5 a.m. on tuesday and went to h.a.a.m. benefit day. it started with scrappy jud newcombe at whole foods at 6 a.m.! then i saw vallejo, the trishas and carolyn wonderland. all be fore 10 a.m.! ha! crazy. i was hoping to sit down and have some quick conversations with more folks that morning but it was kinda hectic and noisy. i got a chance to sit down with omar vallejo and catch up with him for a few minutes about the new vallejo album and his new studio. check it out!
my main guest for episode 109 is the extremely talented bass/tuba player and super-cool dude, jesse murphy from brazilian girls, california and is currently on tour with joe jackson. i met jesse  a couple of weeks ago when i played a solo show in new york.his band, california headlined the show. caught up with him a couple of days later outside my hotel in midtown. it was great getting to talk to him for a bit. he's a great a guy who's played some amazing folks. he loves playing and i love what he does. i hope you enjoy my conversation with jesse. i did.

hello my friends! i am back home after a few harrowing/fun/sweet/anxiety ridden days in houston. my car broke down as i was leaving town on monday. i had it towed back to houston to my cousin, brian's shop. i waited a round a few days and then it looked like the part wasn't going to come in in time for me to make it home for my gig tonight. so, i just rented a car and came home. brian's gonna take care of the offending issues and my car will be badass! the power of positive thinking.
my guest for episode 72 is the great drummer and my old friend, rob hooper. i met rob in the early 90's. we were in bands that did a lot of shows together and our bands were friends. after those bands ran their course, we didn't see each other much over the years except at a club here and there. during that time rob played a ton of artists including jon dee graham, guy forsyth and eliza gilkyson to name a few. when rob came over, he was hungry so i made him breakfast tacos while i interviewed him. it was great to catch-up with my old friend and have some laughs and share some memories. rob is a sweetheart and a monster drummer. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

Episode 67: David' Garza

hi people!
as i sit down to write this paragraph about this interview, i am realizing all of the things i never talked to my guest about. he's opened for and toured as a sideman with fiona apple, alejandro escovedo and more. writing and working with the hanson brothers and so many more... oh well, this can be my excuse to have him on again in a year.
my guest for episode 67 is my dear friend, david' garza! david' and i played our first show together in 1991 at fitzgerald's in houston and have been friends ever since. david' was a tough guy to nail down for this. he is not one that's comfortable in these situations without making music, so i was so ecstatic that after months of asking, he finally agreed to come and talk to me on the record. david' is my favorite musician. when he picks up an instrument, wether it's my ukelele at a party and playing a hawaiian version of "the stroke" by billy squier or sitting at a piano in a random restaurant and playing for hours, i love to hear him make music. david' is an extremely versatile and prolific musician. if you don't own any of his music or have never seen him play live, i urge you to go to immediately and buy some music and find out when he's playing near you!  i really hope you enjoy our conversation. i did!
