We chat with Performer/Singer/Songwriter George Woods about his family’s musical legacy – his grandfather Harry Woods, who came up in the Tin Pan Alley era and wrote some the most popular songs in American history - “Red Red Robin” “Try a Little Tenderness” and “Side by Side” to name a few and his father who produced records for 60’s artists like Dave Van Ronk and more. We discuss how it compares to the business today, the changing platforms for releasing music and George’s upcoming album.

Flashback to our Jan 2014 Episode with Boston Rock Star Will Dailey.

Will Dailey joins Jenee and Danielle for an thought provoking discussion on his major label deal, why listening to music is so important for children, his latest release National Throat and sharing a laugh with Neil Young.

Will Dailey is an independent, Boston-based recording and performing artist. His sound has been described as having a rich vintage vibe[1] while having a firm appreciation of AM rock, pop and big hooks.[2] He is notable as being the 3 time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Male Singer-Songwriter in 2006 and again on December 2, 2009 and December 2, 2012. He has released albums with Universal, CBS Records, Wheelkick Records and JS Music Group. Dailey has released three full-length albums since 2004. His last full length album, Will Dailey & The Rivals, came out on Universal Republic Records, on September 20, 2011. On September 21, 2011, Rick Florino of [Artist Direct] said of the album, "it's not only his most inspired work yet, it's one of the best rock releases of 2011." In 2009 and 2010, Dailey released Torrent, which involved the artist digitally releasing a burst of new music approximately every three months, and then compiling that material, along with bonus material, as a physical and digital audio package twice a year. Dailey is also a part of the John Mellencamp and Stephen King musical project Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Dailey is currently touring on his latest release National Throat.

Chris Trapper Ep 11 "Not to Be Confused with 'Christ Rapper'"

Chris Trapper joins Jenee and Danielle for an in depth discussion about his rise with 90's rock band The Push Stars, the balance between family and touring, writing original Christmas tunes, touring with Colin Hay and more...topped off with some good old fashioned ball humor at the end.

CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late–90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records).

With four CD releases and several high profile national tours – including a run with Matchbox Twenty – The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent. 

The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.” 

As a modern day singer–songwriter, Chris is most known for his song THIS TIME, the Number 1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers – Warner Bros Pictures).
