Welcome to The Singers Talk podcast based on my book of the same name. I’m Jason Thomas Gordon (singer/drummer of the Los Angeles rock band Kingsize), and when I first started singing for my band, I couldn’t believe there was no resource to find out how singers do this brutal job night after night. For something that seems easy, it can be truly dangerous, often embarrassing, and when you’re lucky… absolutely glorious. 
So, this is me, reaching out to some of the greatest, most iconic singers of our time, discussing the one the thing they’re never asked about: their voices! Never thinking this was going to be a podcast, most of the interviews you’re going to hear are the intimate conversations, as I write the actual book… 
If you’re a music fan, you’ll get a backstage look at how your favorite vocalists approach what they do onstage and in the studio. Packed with amazing stories you’ve never heard before, you’ll also find vulnerable sides of their personalities you might never have expected. 
And if you’re a singer, trying to train, help, heal, or even find your voice — you’ll learn how the best in their field keep their vocal cords in shape, how they protect themselves on the road, and countless other tricks, strategies, and philosophies…
Not a technical podcast in any way, The Singers Talk celebrates the people who stand up in front of that mic, reach down into their guts, and give everything they’ve got for the sake of the song. Sometimes it’s bloody. And sometimes it’s bloody hilarious.

    Michael McDonald

    Welcome to The Singers Talk Podcast based on my book of the same name. My guest this week is Michael “You don’t know me, but I’m your bruuuutha” McDonald. Is there anyone on this planet who doesn’t love singing along to this legend? His voice defined the sound of the 70’s - from his lead vocals to his background vocals - and this episode gets into all of it. The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, the lessons he’s learned from singing Motown music, his out of body duet with Ray Charles, the story of Michael writing one of Van Halen’s greatest songs with David Lee Roth, and why music was so much better when people weren’t trying to sound like everyone else.

I can’t wait for this whole series!

I already have Jason‘s amazing book but knowing that there is going to be a podcast with full interviews is the perfect companion. The first episode has everything for fans of music as well as process and vocalists. I have been waiting for this my whole life and my only complaint is that there aren’t more episodes already posted and that I wish there were more living vocalists Jason could have spoken to for posterity. I can’t recommend this enough and it is only one episode in. Also all proceeds going to St. Jude’s just pays it all forward.

Outstanding

Came in as a fan of the book, which is super entertaining and informative. This podcast is a tremendous companion. Such a treat to hear the voices behind the text I’ve been enjoying these past several months. Looking forward to more eps!

The podcast that wasn’t meant to be a podcast!

What a fun and informative journey Jason takes us on. The book and now podcast are so refreshing to understand the nuances of a finding one’s own voice. The only tough part is waiting a week for the next episode. Thank you for entertaining us and donating the proceeds to St Jude. Your grandfather, Danny, would be so proud.
