09 St Paul de Vence
St Paul de Vence may have a slightly hard-to-pronounce name, but they have a story that will grip you from the beginning. The band started as a project of frontman Ben Doerr, who used the story of his grandfather to create an EP that eventually created a band, a full length, and the attention of Seattle radio. In our interview, Ben talks about his grandfather's story, how the band got its start, and life on Bainbridge Island. He talks songwriting, sailing, their newest album, and the future of the band.

06 Exit Ghost
Today I’m excited to bring you my interview with three of the four members of Exit Ghost, an Americana tinged indie rock band from Chicago. I grew up next door to one of the band members, Dorian Gehring, and we also played in multiple bands together starting at a young age. So what does Exit Ghost do? The band likes to take familiar sounds, ones we are comfortable with, and take them in a different direction, doing something new and making them interesting. Hear them talk about their songwriting process and what’s coming up for them this year. At the end of this episode we'll listen to Yellow Hat, by Exit Ghost.

In this interview we talk about the Waterfront Blues Fest, what music Chubby listens to, and the difference between Cajun and Zydeco music.
