    Valleyheart - Heal My Head & More

    Valleyheart - Heal My Head & More

    his conversation with Kevin Klein from Valleyheart is a great look at how a modern artist sees the landscape today, and in what ways some things always stay the same in the midst of constant change. The one trend that continues to grow is the amount of control artists have over more and more layers of their art form, and why having clear vision and identifying constraints seems to matter more than ever. Valleyheart has a brand new Tooth & Nail album called Heal My Head out now, and its a terrific listen.

    The Ongoing Concept - Brothers In Arms

    The Ongoing Concept - Brothers In Arms

    The Ongoing Concept is one of the most DIY bands in the Tooth & Nail/Solid State catalog, and they have achieved many innovative things like building their own instruments from scratch. The journey they have been on has been shaped by those that came before, but is a long quest for the artist to have as much creative control as possible. That desire to control everything has disadvantages too and this all makes for a very interesting conversation with band leader Dawson Scholz.

    The Return Of Watashi Wa

    The Return Of Watashi Wa

    In this episode, we get the chance to to talk about a bunch of people in the Labeled universe through the perspective of Seth Roberts whose band Watashi Wa is back and doing big things. Watashi Wa has a new album out on Tooth & Nail on which Seth has pulled together some awesome collaborations. Not only do they have a new record coming out, but they are also on the west coast leg of LABELED FEST for which Seth is working on the the art team to do all the tour visuals and design work. Matt has known Seth since the first Tooth & Nail Tour in 2004, and Seth has always been a great connector of people in every environment he is in. That has led him to a rich set of experiences. We loved getting to discuss that with him and I know you will too.

    Caught In The Middle - Side Walk Slam/Run Kid Run

    Caught In The Middle - Side Walk Slam/Run Kid Run

    Discovered directly by Brandon Ebel at Cornerstone, this set of individuals successfully navigated a mid-career identity change at the same time the whole industry was navigating major genre transitions. This conversation with David & Neil gives us a window into a fascinating time in our scene through the perspective of what may seem like perpetual outsiders but who truly have a special amount of gratitude that wound up fueling a long and fruitful career.

    Lee Humerian -Tooth & Nail Kid in Ukraine

    Lee Humerian -Tooth & Nail Kid in Ukraine

    Lee Humerian was the drummer for Phinehas for nearly a decade. He is a very classic stereotype of a Tooth & Nail kid who followed his passion for music, energy and mission for God. Lee was drawn from music into full-time missions landing him in Ukraine in 2014. He and his family have made a home and life there during the escalating conflict over the last few years. I felt this was a great opportunity to get the perspective of someone from our world on a world that seems so foreign and unimaginable to me. This conversation is both fascinating, powerful & heartbreaking, and I’m glad you introduce you to a special person like Lee. I hope you get as much from this episode as I did.

    Wolves at The Gate: Eulogies and Building Longevity

    Steve and Ben from Wolves At The Gate have been at this game for a long time, and their band is continually gaining momentum, skill, fans, press coverage & relationships. With the release of their 5th album, Eulogies, they are seeing the compounding rewards of those efforts. The band has been able to maintain a clear vision and knows exactly who they are. Their sound and approach to ministry have been unwavering, yet their music progresses. They remain DIY and hands-on in their organization. They seem to have made the transition from a new & upcoming Solid State band to what you would call a veteran, influential Solid State act. In this episode, we discuss some of the changes they have seen in the the business & technology and also the evolution of their process

Tooth and nail kid for life

Love this podcast so much. I’d love to hear Daniel Davison on here who is without a doubt a T&N legend

Great Podcast

I love this podcast. I’m not usually someone who listens to podcasts but my foster dad put me onto it, and I’ve listened to every episode since it first came out. Only complaint is Matt seems to butt in wayyyyyyy too much instead of just letting the guests talk. Besides that, I enjoy the podcast very much.
