    Cautious Clay

    This week, we bring you an interview with Cautious Clay. He grew up in Ohio and started playing flute and saxophone, and moved to DC for college, which is where he started making beats and producing remixes. In 2015, he did a remix of Billie Eilish’s Ocean Eyes, which was a break that set him on his current path. He’s put out three EPs, and has collaborated with John Mayer and had a song sampled by Taylor Swift. His soulful voice, and his creative mix of hip hop, R&B and experimental music will be front and center on his new album, which will come out in 2021.


    After the interview, you’ll hear Cautious Clay play Agreeable, Stolen Moments, and Joshua Tree. You can see videos of all Past, Present, Future, Live! performances on our show page or on the Osiris Media YouTube Channel. And here's a Spotify playlist from the episode.

    Tash Sultana

    Tash Sultana

    This week, we have a conversation with singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Tash Sultana. Their new album, Terra Firma, is out now. We talked about Tash’s early musical days in Melbourne, playing in clubs and busking. In 2016, the video for the song Jungle, recorded in their living room, went viral, and now has almost 100 million views on YouTube. 


    But Tash isn’t an overnight sensation. They have an intense work ethic and a sense of determination that belies the hippie exterior. We talked about getting into a flow state, which was the title of Tash’s first album. We also talked about the human addiction to technology and social media, and the upsides of having access to a world’s worth of musical information and inspiration. Tash also shares the nourishment they’ve received from being home during the pandemic. 


    After the interview, you’ll hear Tash perform I Am Free, Let The Light In and Pretty Lady. You can see videos of all Past, Present, Future, Live! performances on our show page or on the Osiris Media YouTube Channel.
