    RSR350 - Eric Bazilian - Recording His Solo Record Remotely In Stockholm

    RSR350 - Eric Bazilian - Recording His Solo Record Remotely In Stockholm

    My guest today is Eric Bazilian, an original member of The Hooters, producer, and musician writing and recording with other artists liken Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, The Scorpions, Ricky Martin, Jonatha Brooke, Leanne Rymes, and William Wittman to name just a few.
    Eric has been a guest on the podcast on episode RSR122 to talk about his start in music and writing the song “One Of Us” for Joane Osborne on his kitchen table. So please go check out that episode too. Also, make sure to catch his video series Under The Hood where Eric breaks down all his music and writing methods.
    Email in 2021 “...Being stuck in Stockholm with limited resources (a 2012 MacBook Pro, Apollo Twin, one Gefell mic, a couple of electric guitars, a mandola, a keyboard controller, and a short scale Gretsch bass that my son bought when was twelve) afforded me the time and motivation to make my first solo album in almost twenty years. Drums were cut by my drummer in Philadelphia (challenging considering his total lack of engineering experience, but I made it work), and by my other drummer in Slovenia (recorded by a producer/engineer genius in an amazing studio). I mixed it myself on a pair of Yamaha HS5s, with a lot of input from some legendary mixers (including our pal John Fields), mastered by my guy in Slovenia. A real quarantine pandemic musical fairy tale. 
    Thanks again to John Fields for making our original introduction.

    RSR348 - Moot Booxlé - Vintage Synth Guru & Funky Drummer in Ft Meyers FL

    RSR348 - Moot Booxlé - Vintage Synth Guru & Funky Drummer in Ft Meyers FL

    My guest today is Matt Baxley, better known to the wider world as Moot Booxlé, a multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer, composer, synthesist, teacher, and funk connoisseur currently based in Fort Myers, Florida. 
    Moot rose to prominence in the early days of YouTube with his videos demonstrating his abilities on the modular synthesizer and the talkbox, gaining millions of views and many followers. He played his first professional gig at the age of 16, playing drums in a production of the musical “Grease” in his hometown of Morristown, TN. He has played thousands of gigs since then on multiple instruments. He currently plays and sings nightly in several bands in Southwest Florida, producing records, playing on studio sessions, demonstrating musical equipment both live and on the internet and writing books.
    I stumbled on Moots Youtube channel surfing synth videos when I was checking out the new line of Behringer synths like the Poly D, Odyssey, MS-101, Crave, and Pro-1 where he does a great job of demoing all these. Moot also live streams from his studio where you can see walls of super cool new and vintage synths played with lots of funky skill.
    Plus he is from TN so… come on!
