Veseria is a great 4 piece rock band from Indianapolis. I am a big fan and was excited to talk to Patrick about the band and the new album, RLTVTY. Check out Veseria at Ignition Music in Goshen, IN on August 11 with Brother O’ Brother opening. This is going to be a great show!

This was originally episode 24. I did a “Special Double Upload” with Starheart as the first interview and Paul Erdman as the second. Because Paul Erdman was the last up, it got a lot more downloads than Starheart. It’s been bugging me and I want to make sure Jake & Jess get the exposure they deserve. This was a great interview and Jess & Jake played a beautiful song too! If you missed it, give it a listen. If you liked it, give it another listen.

It was great to talk with Nat & Joel from Spaceships. I had been listening to “Dry Bones”, the teaser track from there new LP “Son of Man” and really liked it. We talked about the work involved in releasing an LP, music genres, and Millennials.

I had listened to and liked a couple Shiny Shiny Black tunes before I started the podcast. I became a super-fan after seeing them live at Ignition Music in Goshen. Their nusic is about real stuff, real feelings, and real concern for the world. Amber & Nate Butler were wonderful to talk to and I hope we can get back together when I have full batteries in my recorder.
