Episode 176 - Richard Sirgiovanni

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Richard Sirgiovanni. He is a lifelong resident of New York City and has many talents. He is a musician, cartoonist, and creator of The Grimps! We had a great conversation about The Beatles, the cartoons of our youth, and his time spent in the NYC music scene. He is in the process of pitching The Grimps to TV and online networks. We talked about his creative process and all of the work it takes to go from an idea to a finished cartoon series. The Grimps' story begins 500 years ago with a group of musicians that were cursed by a jealous wizard; forced to live life hairy, scary, and tiny. A friend of theirs was eventually able temporarily change them back to human form, but only from sunset to sunrise. An original song will be included with each episode of the show. As a special bonus, Mr. Sirgiovanni allowed me to include The Grimps theme song with this show. Learn more at www.thegrimps.com. Please look for him on Facebook and Twitter, and if you reach out, tell him you heard him here first. Enjoy!

Today's guest is Detroit rapper 20 Twen! It was great to meet with him on a cold January afternoon and talk about his life and his influences. He is as proud of his hometown as he is of his music. We talked about the history of Hip Hop, mixtapes, and many of the great artists that have come out of Detroit. Three of his tracks are featured here, including "Rollin" which is available on Amazon and iTunes. 20 is planning to hit the road this year so catch him if you can.

Episode 174 - Mikayla

Happy New Year, everybody! The first episode of 2014 features Mikayla! My conversation with her was a great way to kick off the year. Mikayla has been singing since she was 5 and music is her life. She comes from a musical family that has supported her passion from the start. She is working with V2D Records, and they are focused on releasing hit singles instead of albums. I love this approach. Three of Mikayla's singles are featured with this episode, including her brand new "Take Me Down". Mikayla's voice is suited for all styles of music. She is planning a tour for later in the year. She has a strong social media presence and you can find her at www.v2drecords.com, as well as Twitter (www.twitter.com/rockinmikayla13), Facebook (www.facebook.com/rockinmikayla13), and ReverbNation (www.reverbnation.com/rockinmikayla13)  If you reach out to Mikayla, please let her know that you heard her here first. Enjoy!
