Matthew Paul Revere is a storyteller when you get right down to it. And aside from tweaking a lyric here or there to fit his narrative into the constraints of a song, his stories are all true. MPR has lived an interesting life to still be so young, so you can imagine all of the songs (or stories) that are still to be written. We discuss some of his stories and inspirations in this episode. Joining MPR is Craig Pratt on lead guitar. Enjoy!
Ryan Scoggins fronts a local band by the name of Blackbird Revival. He also plays solo. He's a super talented songwriter and an all around good guy. This episode we chat about our influences, aspirations and probably some things totally irrelevant to music. It's always great to Ryan around as we never lack something to ponder.

My really good friends Ryan Scoggins, Johnny Briggs, Craig Pratt and Richard Hall (better known as Blackbird Revival) drop by to discuss song writing, getting out of gigs alive, kung fu fighting, broken hips and bringing back classic rock karate kicks. They also play a few tunes off of their new self titled album.
The Hansird brothers - Heath and Cory - join me on episode 4 this week. We discuss the importance of supporting local musicians as well as early memories and influences pertaining to music. We also ponder civilization, and get interrupted by dogs and a classic Chatsworth burnout.
