    Michael League of Snarky Puppy

    Michael League of Snarky Puppy

    4-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Michael League is the founder of Snarky Puppy and musical director for David Crosby and has just released his debut solo album So Many Me via GroundUP Music. Quarantine found League in a tiny apartment in Cadiz, Spain with no Snarky Puppy projects or major production gigs on the horizon. He found himself with the time to compile the footnotes, drafts and melodies he’d collected over the years with the intent of pulling together a solo record. Michael had the idea of creating a textural landscape with thick vocal harmonies; a mix of Turkish, Moroccan and Kurdish percussion and synthesizers. Throughout the album, League rediscovers the music of his own past, exploring 1980’s soundscapes and drops in references spanning from Tears for Fears to Talking Heads.

People, Culture and Ideas in Portland

An always interesting weekly show about people, culture and ideas in Portland, Oregon. Host Gregory Day is a good interviewer and it's clear from the quality of the conversations that he takes the time to get to know his guests before hitting the record button. The show is well edited, too, with fun musical transitions and occasional editorial notes. Be sure to listen for the the occasional outtake at the end of many episodes.
