Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #774 – 4/1/2017: Daniel Trigger interview!

Daniel Trigger

On today’s show, we welcomed British melodic hard rocker Daniel Trigger! His songs are pretty fantastic, and his soaring vocals make him a one of a kind presence. This was the first time he’s been on Twirl, and it was a live chat–all the way from Sacramento to the UK! Daniel made five of his acoustic rock demos available as an EP called “Right Turn”, and is kind enough to donate the proceeds to Marie Curie Cancer Care, a really worthy organization. Here’s some more info on Daniel, and you can purchase the EP right here:

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #773 – 3/25/2017: Joe Algeri interview!

Joe Algeri

Joe Algeri has been a favorite presence on Twirl for a long time. He’s one of the more prolific artists I know, playing in and producing such bands as The JAC, The Britannicas, The Outryders, and so many more. Whether it’s jangly and hard-rockin’ originals, skewed covers, or even the occasional “normal” cover, Joe has pretty much done it all. On today’s show, we chatted with him all the way from his home base in Perth, Western Australia–a mere 15 time zones away! He’s working on 3 projects simultaneously right now (that we know of), so we’ll hear new music from The Britannicas and The Outryders, and an interesting, unearthed track from Love Minus Zero.

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #772 – 3/18/2017: Rick Hromadka interview!

Rick Hromadka

Rick Hromadka’s musical projects have been Twirl Radio favorites for the better part of a decade. He grabbed his rightful place on our airwaves with Maple Mars, and has sweetened the deal with another great band, one which he and his wife, Lisa Cavaliere co-front, Ruby Free. The new Ruby Free album is called Shades, and it is magnificent! Lots of variety on this one–it rocks a little harder than the last one–and oh–there’s a Carpenters cover to boot! That’s treading on musical holy ground, but they handle it masterfully. Shades comes out in a few weeks, so we were lucky to grab Rick and chat for about 25 minutes on today’s show.

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #771 – 3/11/2017: Bud Rogers interview!

Bud Rogers

Bedfordshire, UK-based Bud Rogers has been “making noise” since he was a little guy–drums first, then guitars. His musical career took the opposite turn of most: he started in rock, then went back to school to get classically-trained! He scored a couple of films and wrote a concerto, but rock and roll kept calling. He was a big part of the sound of the band Swidenbank, whom we’ve played a lot on this show over the years. Five years ago, when he started releasing solo records, he really honed and refined his sound. It’s a big rock sound–heavy on the guitars, with solid writing and soulful vocals. Bud’s been a favorite on Twirl Radio since then–and even won our coveted Male Vocalist of the Year Twirlie Award.

Late last year, he released the four song EP “Starman”–featuring a wonderful cover of the David Bowie song, plus three originals. Today, we caught up, and had a lively chat.

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #770 – 3/4/2017: Chandler Travis interview!

Chandler Travis

Chandler Travis

Cape Cod-based musical provocateur Chandler Travis paid us a return visit on Twirl Radio today. As longtime Twirl listeners know, Chandler leads a rag-tag band of musical misfits/geniuses known as the Chandler Travis Philharmonic (“putting the harm in philharmonic”). You may also know Chandler as a founding member of the Incredible Casuals, who’ve been rocking us since 1980. So what does his music sound like? If you like the quirky virtuosity of NRBQ, you’ll feel right at home here. The new album, Waving Kissyhead Vol 2 & 1, careens wildly between Dixieland, achingly beautiful perfect pop songs, and straight up rock and roll. This album has a sense of humor, and a sense of optimism. Here’s some more info about all of Chandler’s musical enterprises: Enjoy the podcast and the music!

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #769 – 2/25/2017: Matt North interview!

Matt North

Matt North

Today on Twirl, our very special guest was Nashville-based singer-songwriter-drummer-actor-comedian Matt North! Just look at all those hyphens–he’s a true Renaissance man. We’ve known each other for about 10 years, but as is the way of the 21st century, we’ve never spoken before today. We’ve been internet “pen pals”, as Matt put it. He’s been involved in several albums that we’ve played on the show over the years, and now, he steps out into the spotlight with his brand new album “Above Ground Fools”. We had a lengthy chat about, well, everything, since we had a decade’s worth of catching up to do. We heard three great tracks off of Above Ground Fools, and learned what comedians and musicians have in common. Enjoy the podcast!

Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #768 – 2/18/2017: Interview with Cirrone!

On today’s show, we visited with the brothers Cirrone: Bruno, Mirko, and Alessandro. We did a live conversation spanning nine time zones: they’re in Sicily, and I’m in California. We played a track from their Uplands Park Road album, chatted to them about their influences (spoiler alert: Beatles), and learned a bit about their upcoming plans for EP and album releases. And–this was a great honor–they let us listen to a track that they consider a “rough mix”–raw, and unfinished. They have incredibly high standards, because to my ears, it sounded amazing, and definitely complete.

We played tons of other great music–mostly indie, some brand new–and we even snuck in a classic Peter Frampton track! Enjoy the podcast of the Cirrone conversation.
