Phoenix, Arizona based Singer/Songwriter Brian Chartrand sits down with friends and fellow artists to discuss music, songwriting, art, life, and whatever else comes up. The inspiration for this podcast came from the countless, often intense, sometimes zany, discussions over the years with friends and artists that I wish I had recorded. Another goal of So The Story Goes is to introduce the world to some very talented friends of mine. I hope you enjoy it.
Danny "Thunder God" Doyle, trumpet player based in Phoenix stops by for a chat. We talk about his rich viking history, the room in Vegas where he was conceived, his early intro into jazz, our shared love and disappointment of Game of Thrones, his lifelong work in autism, and we share our battle stories from working on cruise ships.
LA based Brian DeMarco, musician, singer/songwriter, visual artist, and actor lands at my kitchen table for a lively discussion on his early AZ days and obsession with skateboarding and snowboarding, how an accident on the ski hill brought him to the guitar and songwriting, his deep love and connection to the blues, and how he used his downtime during COVID to live his best, most prolific life. We also listen to and discuss his tune "Pimps and Whores." Find him on https://open.spotify.com/artist/0NbnuOdlSyRTq74uSRt7dw?si=luGJSIKQQUG9QJEzg39Vow (Spotify).
Talented multi-instrumentalist, band leader, side man extraordinaire, pork butt smoker, and professor of hijinks and tom foolery Shea Marshall stops by the crib and shares some early musical memories back in Pittsburgh, PA, his experience at ASU and subsequent lengthy rap sheet, busts out a show and tell box of goodies, and shares his tune "Back Home Again."

Blind Rye Tasting with Joey Joyce
Things get squirrelly when Joey Joyce stops by for a blind rye whiskey tasting. Joey, a seasoned professional in all things drinkable, shares his knowledge of rye, we recount (most times inaccurately) some of our favorite movie lines, and taste some rather delicious whiskey. It was a ball to say the least. Buckle up for this one. Find out more about Joey, his new bar in Seattle, and some of his delicious cocktails at https://instagram/joeyjoyce_barkeep
Wes John Cichosz
Chicago born saxophonist, guitar player, singer/songwriter Wes John Cichosz stops by and chats about his early influences, how Pachelbel's Canon started his sax career, his time harmonizing with broken bathroom fans, jamming with members of Smashing Pumpkins, his journey to Phoenix, and shares his tune "Everybody Says" which popularized the word "hey" in a song. And no, he can't have my cheese. http://www.wjcmusic.com/ (http://www.wjcmusic.com/)
Singer, songwriter Kyle Phelan graces us with his classic vocal sound check warm up, how his religious upbringing affected the albums that were spun in his home, the influence of growing up in San Diego, how the pandemic inspired him to move to Chattanooga, TN, and our collaboration on his tune "Puppet." If you are looking for fellowship, look no further. Glory. https://www.kylephelan.com/ (https://www.kylephelan.com/)
My only beef with the Jay Allen episode, was the lack of mention of, smooooke wagon, wagons of smoke.
