Episode 276 - Freedy Johnston

February 5th, 2013 · Comments

After Rolling Stone and Spin hailed his 1992 release, “Can You Fly” a masterpiece, its success led to a major label deal with Elektra (produced by Butch Vig), for whom Johnston released “This Perfect World in 1994, which included his breakthrough hit, “Bad Reputation”.  Other critically acclaimed albums followed and critics have continue to praise Johnston effusively, solidifying his reputation as one of the finest and most singular voices in the singer-songwriter genre.  Splitting his time between NYC and Madison, you may have caught Freedy in past years in rare Madison shows with Garbage alums, Butch Vig and Doug Erikson and Madison main-stays James “Pie Cown, Bill “Stick” Bielefeld and Jay Moran in their clandestine cover-band, The Know-It-All-Boyfriends.

Episode 265 - Brandon Beebe

November 6th, 2012 · Comments

An active and exciting new songwriter on the Madison and WI scenes, Brandon Beebe was the recent recipient of a 2012 Madison Music Award for "Best New Artist". "Gently finger-picked acoustic guitar and vocals are deceptive; a close listen reveals layers of delicate sounds that are simply a joy to delve into. At times he can seem much older than his years. His lyrics are deeply felt and bear the mark of someone who has a lifetime of experiences to draw from." (Rick Tvedt / Local Sounds Magazine)
