While magazines and blog interviews often provide a peek behind the curtain and into the minds of music’s best musicians, every interviewer knows that there are nuances of humor, sarcasm, honesty, and even sadness that are left on the tape. Even the best journalist, one who gets close to translating the experience of hearing someone’s thoughts and words in their own voice, could never quite share 100 percent of that experience.
Appreciating this phenomenon, music journalist Tim Anderl (of YouIndie.com and Ghettoblaster Magazine) teamed with Frank Steele, a professional media and video producer (Frame Jump Music Videos), to create the Sound Check Chat podcast. The podcast shares the experience of dialing up a musician or talking to them one-on-one, face to face. The podcast will typically drop on the first and 15th of every month.
On March 15, 2014, the podcast launched via iTunes, as well as at the Sound Check Chat website (http://www.soundcheckchat.com). The initial podcasts include interviews with one-half of Insane Clown Posse, Violent J, and Hawthorne Heights guitarist/frontman and solo artist JT Woodruff.
