    Ep. 62: Weathering The Elements With Sister Hazel's Ryan Newell

    Ep. 62: Weathering The Elements With Sister Hazel's Ryan Newell

    Ryan Newell, lead guitarist for Sister Hazel, joins us to talk all things hazelnut: from their fan-centric approach to putting their music out to the masses; their natural progression in the country music genre (while still holding onto their pop-rock roots); the impressive roster of cover songs they've performed & released over the years; their yearly special events (and how COVID-19 has impacted them); the new beer "Ale For You" which has recently been launched; their latest album "Elements" which combines their last 4 EPs (“Water,” “Wind,” “Fire” & “Earth”) and how the EP approach might be the avenue in which the band continues to release new music!

Jon Porobil ,

Lively and informative

I always like listening to the guys from Tunestiles talk about music. They keep things fun, but always educational. They're great interviewers, too!

JPen88 ,

Great content!

My first episode was the interview with High Fidelity’s Franklin Hardy and it was an awesome episode! Brian was an awesome host who really knows how to let a conversation breath. Cannot wait to hear more! Subscribed!

Informed, but accessible

These guys know music, but never lord it over the listener. They speak from a perspective of musicians AND fans which makes for a damned interesting show.

Their voices are strong, the production is excellent and the content is grade-A certified awesome.
