Welcome to the third episode of “Alloy: A Mixture of Music and Conversation.” If you listened to the previous episode of this podcast, you know that I split my conversation with Pat Daugherty across two podcast episodes. What you are currently listening to is part three. A link to the previous episode can be found via the Alloy webiste at alloypm.com or through your podcast app of choice. If you have not heard the first installment, I highy recommend giving it a listen before going further with this one. BUT…the choice is all yours.
A little background about this podcast….this is still a relatively a new adventure for me so the format and focus of this show is bound to evolve and change over time. Thus far it is primarily an interview show with the goal being to spotlight a musician, band, or anyone in the greater music arena…including independent label representatives, writers, educators, in short, anyone involved in making and/or trying to figure out how to make and share their creative work.
Which brings me to this current episode…
As previously noted, this is a continuation of my conversation with artist, composer, musician, and modern day renaissance man, Pat Daugherty. Pat is perhaps best known for his work fronting the New York Electric Piano and we spoke in the friendly confines of my home studio not too long after the release of their most recent release, “Black Hole in One.” Give it a listen, it is excellent. On that note, for more background about this interview, the music played, and a more complete bio of Pat, checkout the show notes for this episode and/or listen to the previous episode.For more information about Pat Daugherty and New York Electric Piano, checkout this website.
