hello my friends! this episode comes to you from the depths of SXSW 2014. things have been very crazy. i've been running around meeting people for interviews, seeing shows, i went to awards and had such a great time, i was on a panel called, "the death of podcasting has been exaggerated" and today i'm doing 3 interviews then heading out to houston with my man, kyle crusham to play with SKYROCKET! at the continental club then right back after the gig and more interviews tomorrow. this sxsw has been really busy for me. it's been really fun too. i've enjoyed meeting so many musicians. i set up interviews with artists i really like so that's been a good thing, but it's been really busy. i've gotten some good interviews with really good bands, so be looking for those starting next week.
my guest for episode 255 is musician/composer/producer, brian standefer! when i first met brian in 90's he was playing cello for alejandro escovedo's band. since then he started a composing and production group called, screen door music with rob djursoe and bukka allen, composed music for commercials tv and film, started producing albums for other artists, had kids and continued to play cello with many different artists. i've always gotten along with brian. he's a great hang and we have a fantastic conversation. plus, i get to tell his heroic story about when he saved patty griffin's dog and i get to apologize for maybe ruining his wedding. check it out! have a great day.
