I had an opportunity to talk with
Chad Matheny as he was preparing to release his latest Emperor X
album "Western Teleport". We talked about how happy he is to be
working with Bar/None Records, and his preparation for his upcoming
tour. Chad has spent a majority of his time as a working musician
out on the road. He told me that this tour will take him within 50
miles of anyone that wants to see him, and I am no exception.
He will make a stop in my town at the end of October. We talked
about his upbringing on the East Coast, and how he left his
teaching job to pursue his life in music. Western Teleport is also
being made available on vinyl. I told Chad how much I appreciate
that. He is also planting Western Teleport Nodes in the cities that
he will visit, and he gives his fans clues on where to find.
When they are found, they are registered online. This makes
unreleased music available to everyone. This is just one
example of how Chad makes the experience interactive for his
fans. Please visit Chad at http://emperorx.tumblr.com/,
and pick up a copy of Western Teleport.
