Season 2 EPISODE 86: Luis Espaillat

What makes a great bass player? When you don't notice him... until suddenly you do. And then he  folds right back into the mix again. Like a ghost. But a ghost that you can feel. That moves you without calling attention to themselves. It's much the same with what makes a great person. Ego gets left behind, and the job of holding it all down becomes the focus. Luis Espaillatt does both.Holding down the low end for countless artists and holding up his end at home with his wife and kids. Jace sits down with a dude he admires and talks music, family, and how "being the brand" is one of the worst things a human being can aspire to do.

Season 2 EPISODE 85: Jamie Rubin

Jamie Rubin is a rock and roller. Straight up. But he's also a local fixture/legend in Nashville for his legendary joint The Family Wash. Then again, well, it's complicated. See, he's not at the Family Wash anymore. Like so many of us in 2018, he's going through changes he didn't anticipate and looking at life from a whole new perspective. Telecasters, shepherds pie, and Boston bred rock and roll are all alive and well in Nashville. And Jamie's got the scars, scarves, and devilish grin to prove it.

Season 2 EPISODE 83: KEITH BROGDON

When you're a drummer, volume is important. From banging the pots and pans with Will Hoge, Bare, Jr., Radney Foster, and dozens more Keith Brogdon learned how to give the artist what they needed. Now with his graphic design firm Thinking Out Loud Design he brings that same "artist first" ethos into the visual realm. Designing album covers like the Sturgill Simpson Grammy winning "MetaModern..." record. Making tour posters for acts as diverse as Counting Crows, The Dead Deads, and Peter Frampton. Keith is working with ultra indie acts and big label stars with the passion that only a true artist can muster. All while still playing the drums when it suits him and raising a great family in his very favorite town; Nashville. He also has a weird affection for hot chicken.
