    Ray West (SupaFly, Spread Eagle)

    Ray West (SupaFly, Spread Eagle)

    Pariah Burke talks once again to Ray West, lead singer and lyricist for new modern Rock project SupaFly and O.G. New York street metal band Spread Eagle, SupaFly, a new sound, and a much more dynamic way of singing for the guy who sang "Switchblade Serenade" and "Broken City." We discussed the evolution of Ray's voice from that "vicious", raspy falsetto of the 22-year-old Spread Eagle singer to a more mature chest singer who still hits what he calls "the bullet points" of Spread Eagle songs. In between the usual interview topics--appearances, new albums from SupaFly and Spread Eagle, what's next--we chatted about Aerosmith's heaviest music, great Rock singers, U2, the current state of the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, and when Ray West attended a party in New York with Prince jamming all night.



    Topics Discussed:

    - the origin of SupaFly

    - When the debut album drops

    - Exclusive! The next single from SupaFly revealed!

    - SupaFly's music was so personal, it almost wasn't released

    Åge Sten Nilsen (Glam) of Wig Wam

    Åge Sten Nilsen (Glam) of Wig Wam

    Pariah Burke talks with very positive Wig Wam frontman Glam (aka Åge Sten Nilsen) about the band’s new album, Out of the Dark, as well as the music of their past, present, and future.

    The pandemic hit the music industry hard. Few were hit as bad as Norwegian Glam Metal band Wig Wam. At the end of 2021 the band couldn't get a booking, and, despite a new record from Frontiers Music SRL, they were about to call it quits for the second time in their 20-year career. Then came Peacemaker.

    An offbeat superhero TV show from the mind of James Gunn saved Wig Wam by setting the show's stunning opening sequence dance number to their 2010 song "Do Ya Wanna Taste It?" Overnight Wig Wam was not only saved, but had become one of the hottest bands on earth. A year later, they have another new album and a year long tour lined up, including a slot on the Monsters of Rock Cruise.

    The attitude of frontman Åge Sten Nilsen couldn't be more positive, as you'll see when I sit down with Åge on the day their new album, Out of the Dark, dropped.
