    Episode 40 - Edan Archer

    Episode 40 - Edan Archer

    Instead of me trying to introduce you to Edan let me pull straight from her website.













































    Archer's swampy sensibilities come through loud and clear in the grooves of Journey Proud, her voice is sultry as sweet tea and crackles like the ever-present heat lightning of her Everglades upbringing. All moonshine and honey, she gets gritty with dulcimer magic and casts spells with intimate ballads and fingerpicking, alternate tunings, and rich effects. As she pulls from her varied influences--Appalachian folk, country, and rock, she creates music that's familiar yet fresh, music that reflects the listener's life experiences back to them.There are swampy songs, honky-tonk tunes, alt-country cruisers, and a samba-tinged nod or two to her Cuban heritage on Journey Proud, woven together with her direct lyrical challenges to society's idea of gender roles and femininity, her throwback vocal vibrato, and fiery fingerpicking. She sings of heartbreak, rebellion, substance abuse, hard work, and spirituality--a micro-verse of American life told through American musical styles. Journey Proud encompasses tales of addiction, death, and even a bank robbery (a true story)--the subjects may be tough, but it's a beautiful listen.Archer has performed at Stagecoach, SXSW, Americanafest, Canadian Music Week and more. She plays both solo and with her band.
    Cowboys & Indians"A poetically candid impression of everyday struggles and life milestones, the album covers emotions and moments that everyone can relate to..."Americana Highways“If you don’t feel something when she sings...you might be made of stone”Miami New Times"Eagerness to challenge modern expectations of femininity in her art... willingness to place gorgeous, harmony-laden country ballads alongside smoky dive bar riffs"Parade Magazine"With beautifully shot Southern footage and a mournful story, ['Six Wing Angel'] takes Archer's swampy sensibilities and rolls them into a fingerpicked fable" Wide Open Country"Come for the punky riffs, stay for the lyrics" American Songwriter"Growing up in Gainesville, Florida, Edan Archer had no choice but to be influenced by the city’s favorite musical son, Tom Petty. Petty’s influence has made its way into much of Archer’s music, which blends country, Americana, and heartland rock" AXS"Archer serves fans country tunes with punk attitude"






    I hope you enjoy the episode. Be sure to watch the video version for the video to Six Winged Angel or visit her website for more info. Her LP Journey Proud has proven to be a favorite of mine this year so check that out as well. It’s also available at her website.
    Carlos did an amazing job on the video and the sound….as always. Also want to thank Ed Agudelo for helping to make this happen and of course thanks to Edan herself for taking the time to sit down and chat.

    Episode 39 - Renaissance Man Jesse James Allen

    To say there is a lot of passion in our community is an understatement. When it comes to igniting the flame of passion there is no one better to feature than Jesse James. As Editorial Director at Orlando’s Falcons Creative Group (see This Is Orlando Episode 16) he helps steer their creative vision.

Basically his passion is for telling stories and he is not reluctant to use whatever medium helps him accomplish this task.
    In addition to being one of the nicest guys you will meet he is always looking to collaborate and expand his vision so be sure to hit him up at the links below or find him on Linkedin. I want to thank him for taking the time out of his crazy schedule to share some thoughts and work with us.

    Episode 38 - Justin Nguyen / GetChoGrindUp

    Episode 38 - Justin Nguyen / GetChoGrindUp

    I recently had the pleasure of meeting an incredible and passionate voice in the Career Services field right here in Orlando a few weeks back. Justin Nguyen graduated from UCF in 2018 with a degree in finance. While working his way through school he quickly realized that an education was only a part of what he needed to succeed once in the real world. His instincts told him that his professional skills and network were just as important. He watch his fellow students struggle in the areas and started offering advice to them through the hashtag #getchogrindup. From small things big things one day come!
    GetchoGrindUp has catapulted into a huge movement among current and recent college graduates. It has spawned the podcast and the newsletter. His linkedin posts average over 200,000 views each month. He is currently working on a new ways to present job fairs and is making some huge waves advancing and disrupting an industry and making it the go to place for the next generation college students.
    Everything you need to follow, listen and subscribe is available at his Linkedin page here. For a more complete overview of Justin and GetChoGrindUp be sure to check out the podcast and be sure to drop Justin a line and say hello.






    I hope everyone is hanging in there during this difficult time. I try to remain positive and stay busy. If anyone needs a chat or anything at all you know where to find me. Thanks as always to the man behind the curtain Carlos Ivan. Check out some of his work at the link below.

    Episode 37 / Tom Todia - Audio Director, EA Tiburon

    Episode 37 / Tom Todia - Audio Director, EA Tiburon

    It was so good to get to sit down (virtually) with Tom this week and catch up. In addition to being a great ambassador of sound he is also an incredible teacher. Although many of his stories come from the world of audio his lessons are transferable to all disciplines. His message mush like my own, Get Involved, be creative and never give up.
    It’s a total bummer that we are not able to sit down in person these days but thanks to the folks at Zoom we are able to record these episodes and present not just the audio podcast but video as well. I know everyone out their is extremely excited to watch two dudes talk to each other through their computers for an hour, right? Good times!
    We have more episodes in the can and hope to bump up the frequency of new episodes during the crazy times we find ourselves in. Be sure to find us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RobCobleThisIsOrlando/ as well as Twitter - https://twitter.com/TIOrlandoShow
    Be safe y’all. I’m standing by.






    Carlos once again provides the secret sauce to bringing these episodes to you so be sure to show him some love. As always, we want your suggestions and thoughts, ideas too. Be sure to reach out to me at rwcoble@gmail.com .

    Episode 36 - Rob & Carlos, The New Normal?

    Well, here we are. March 2020 and everyone is somewhat locked down and trying to make the best of things in dire circumstances. I miss getting to hang with Carlos and we wanted to keep the podcast alive so we decided to try our hand at remote podcasting through Zoom.
    Episode 36 is our conversation and it seemed to work out pretty well. In fact we have already recorded episode 37 with EA Director of Audio, Tom Todia. Will publish that one soon enough but for now here’s a little filler episode for you.
    I know times are tough and my offer stands. Those of you in the service industry or others who have lost their job due to this virus and would like a resume review I am happy to give your resume a tune up. You can email me at rwcoble@gmail.com. Let me know what it is that you want to look for and I will get back to you asap with any pointers that may improve your chances.
    I know it’s pretty crazy out there but let’s try and look out for each other. Make good use of all the social media tools we have to stay connected and be nice for God’s sake. Carlos and I will continue to bring episodes as quickly as possible. We welcome comments and feedback.






    My extreme gratitude to Carlos for all of his continued efforts with This Is Orlando. He’s the man! Much love to Chad and the gang at the Game Space. We would be there if we could. You guys be safe. To those out there helping to fight this thing Godspeed. We appreciate your efforts and your selflessness.
