Music As Therapy–Michael Gilbride (Ep 198)
Michael Gilbride somewhat recently released his debut EP 'my name is not kaiser' and the single 'Say Hello,' from that EP. The animated video for 'Say Hello,' which you can find at telcomusic.com or the show notes for this episode, is amazing. Michael and I discuss the animators behind the 'Say Hello' video, the stories behind the telco project, his biggest challenges writing and recording the EP, and how music became therapy for his OCD. At the time of our conversation, he had another single on the way. That song 'Minus Nine' was released on January 8th of this year 2021, which coincided with my first ever single release. He was apologetic about this, but I thought it was awesome. I just finally listened to 'Minus Nine,' and it's great. Michael's music has a great pop sensibility. I had a laugh at his mild preoccupation with aging out of music at 25. I'm old enough to be his dad, but we didn't get into that. Please enjoy.
