Dolphin City - DigiVegas 129

My guest this week is Newport beach, CA based band Dolphin City. Hailing from So-Cal, an area full of light, hackneyed surf-rock bands and pop acts that seem to take great pride in their shallowness, Dolphin City breaks from the local musical pack by being more thoughtful in their approach to their music. On this episode of DigiVegas, we discuss their writing and recording process, and listen to tracks from their new CD, Discretion.

DigiVegas 128 - Dare Dukes

My guest this week is Savannah, GA singer-songwriter Dare Dukes.

I don't normally like to simply cut and paste sections of a guest's bio as my show description, I think that's kind of lazy, but Dare's bio is so well-written I don't think I can do a better job to describe his music.

The songs that make up Dare Dukes’ new album, Prettiest Transmitter of All, are a striking combination of incisive intelligence and sweet, doleful hooks. Looking past the shiny surfaces of American life, the Savannah, GA-based singer-songwriter chronicles the everyday world, mining the margins for the eccentric characters and bizarre events that are the heart of his music.

Yes, 2 In One Day... DigiVegas 127 - Alyse Black

I had a chance to talk to Alyse Black again today. You might remember her from Episode 083 of DigiVegas.

This year she was nominated for Grammy's in 6 Jazz categories for her debut CD Too Much And Too Lovely. That's a remarkable accomplishment, even if one doesn't win. Think about it, most musicians work their entire lives to even earn one nomination, and Alyse got 6 on her first attempt. That alone is reason to celebrate!

So, come check out this episode of DigiVegas. I'll be talking to Alyse about the Grammy's, and what she's been up to this past year. She'll also update us on her upcoming tour dates, as well as share some sneak-peeks at her new material she plans on putting on her sophomore CD later this summer.

Too Much And Too Lovely can be purchased at: Alyse Black - Too Much & Too Lovely

I also want to tell everyone that I'm stating a new feature on DigiVegas. Every once in a while, I haven't yet decided on the frequency, I will be presenting you The DigiVegas Podsafe Showcase. It will be posted here on, and use the same RSS feed, so if you want to check it out or subscribe to it, just keep on doing what you're doing in getting DigiVegas regularly.

Basically, The DVPS is an idea I came up with to feature more bands for the audience. The interview show is great, it really helps listeners get to know the people behind all this great indie music. Problem is, I can't cover very much ground doing one interview a week.

The DVPS will be in podcast form only, and feature the least in my mind, independent, podsafe music, just like the regular DigiVegas shows, but the DVPS will feature 10-12 songs an episode, from as many artists, with no interview and very little interference by yours truly and his big mouth. It will be kind of like the proverbial mix tape, and this will be 100% guaranteed, certified from bands I haven't had a chance to interview yet for one reason or another. So, if you're one of those bands and are excited to be on this part of the show, get in touch with me, and we'll see what we can do to set up an interview.


DigiVegas 126 - National Ghost

My guests this week are member s of the Detroit based band National Ghost. you might remember them individually from previous endeavors: Kunundrum, Weathered Tone, Vietnam Prom, Penumbrae, Stash, Some People’s Children, Thunderharp Choir and Robb Roy. With such a great deal of musical experience among them, it's easy to understand why they are dubbed a "super-group" by Local film maker Jim Bonner.

The band’s debut disc features 14 tracks of original eclectic rock and pop that borrow liberally from every type of genre you could imagine. ....Americana...., country, funk, reggae, jam, prog-rock, blues—like some tasty musical smoothie; it’s an energized and powerful blend.(Metro Times)

You can check out National Ghost at their WEBSITE, or on their MYSPACE PAGE.
