    NAMM 2020 with RME Audio

    Gritty Birds has been missing the road, and frankly missing producing new episodes. So, we're taking things on the road in a whole new way thanks to the creator my interface, RME. 

    This is day 1 of NAMM, featuring 3 of the artists working and performing at RME's 2020 NAMM booth: Pete, Justine and Adam. 

    We talk resiliency, our love of gear and production and set the tone for a unique trade show series, where I'll be interviewing close to 50 artists and creators for the brand.

    Day 5 Gritty Birds NaPodPoMo: Season 4 preview: Kolars from Treefort Music Festival

    Day 5 Gritty Birds NaPodPoMo: Season 4 preview: Kolars from Treefort Music Festival

    On Tuesday we're previewing Season 4 of Gritty Birds. This week's interview is with constantly touring married master duo Kolars. I met with the group while they were in Boise in 2017. They are infectious, not just in personality, but also their intense stage set up. A mix of tap, drums and sultry guitar and vocals, they're one of my favorites.

Love a good storyteller

Glad to hear the Grit back in podcasting. Feeling the new format fresh and interesting. Gotta love change cause it’s everywhere we look. Get the dad on from time to time to deliver his Sunday story.
