Roi & the Secret People - Your Next Favorite Band
No secrets here!  We are thrilled to bring you the story and the music of Mike Roi and his band Roi & the Secret People.  He started his journey in Jupiter, FL, spent time in Philly and NY as things picked up, and then the woman he loved and the town of Easton in the Lehigh Valley inspired him to lay down roots, all while releasing incredible music.We'll dive in to how he started his music journey on the wrong foot...or horn really...by attempting to describe the saxophone but receiving a clarinet.  Then on to high school bands that didn't really know how to play, and then cracking through his introversion to become one of the most electric frontman in the biz.Roi & the Secret People have amazing songs that are meaningful as well - touching on topics of homelessness, substance abuse and even suicide prevention & awareness.  We'll feature their brand new, not-yet-released song "Halo", as well as "Dog St", "Mississippi Sun" and "Phoenix".We are honored to have the Roi & the Secret People acoustic trio a part of our very first Your Next Favorite Band presents... line-up - performing on Sunday, June 9th at 4pm ET (doors at 3pm) in Bethlehem, PA at Godfrey Daniels.  Get tickets at godfreydaniels.org, or link to it along with music and details at nextfavband.com.  Hope you can join us!Roi & The Secret People LinksWebsiteInstagramTwitter/XYoutubeFacebookRoi & The Secret People MusicBandcampSpotifyApple MusicText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Wila Frank - Your Next Favorite Band
May 16 2024
Wila Frank - Your Next Favorite Band
This week we are joined by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Wila Frank - a hot, up-and-coming artist with a knack for taking the styles from her youth playing folk/americana music to a more alt-pop sound, all while making impossible sounds possible.With music often referred to as "cinematic", "introspective" and many other superlatives, I just like to say its incredible, and you're going to love it.Growing up on a farm in a rural bohemian town in Oregon (we'll get more detail on what that's like), she learned how to play the fiddle at the age for 4 (fueled by a little sibling rivalry) but didn't stop there, picking up the piano, mandolin, cello and guitar.  She began songwriting at the  age of 12 following the tragic loss of her father, which helped her cope and move through the grieving process.Now in Nashville, she released one of our favorite records last year: Black Cloud, and her hit "Tonight" made our Your Next Favorite Song for 2023 Spotify playlist.  She is set to release new music this year as well, so we'll dive in to that and she'll even play some of it live for us during the interview.Be sure to check out her music and tune in for the interview!Text us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Eliza Hardy Jones - Your Next Favorite Band
This week's conversation will have it all - incredible music, inspiring story, deep conversation about overcoming grief, international relations, trips to the arctic circle, synesthesia, quilting with brilliance, and even the Philadelphia Eagles.  Yep...all of that!  So you will not want to miss our conversation with Eliza Hardy Jones.Of course, primarily this is about the first item on that list - and Eliza has just released a gem of an album called Pickpocket, and while it's full of the journey through the grief of attempting to have a child and feeling like you've tried everything, the music somehow has the ability to ease the pain and bring comfort...and hope.We'll explore this wonderful release with her, and take a trip with her through all of the other incredible elements of her story - including her time performing with Grace Potter, Iron & Wine, and her current band The War on Drugs.  Which also lead her to work with Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson as the vocal coach for the Philly Special Christmas albums.  And the incredible Song Quilt Project!Text us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Brian Walker is on a mission to spread good vibes.  He achieves this through many, many ways.  Of course our focus today will be to feel those vibes through his music and his band A Day Without Love.Take a moment to spend some time as we hear about his early inspirations, how his poetry got turned in to the first songs, and how one of them, inspired by the ugliness of domestic violence that he helped stop, became the band name and launched the mission to help others rise above their own struggles.Brian will perform live, and we'll share additional tracks from his catalog that shows off his infectious folk punk sound.Text us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Alex Radus/Hot4Robot (at Lost Tavern Brewing) - Your Next Favorite Band
Do you think you can play like Django?  How about Radus?  Well think again, and tune in for our in-person convo with incredible finger-pickin singer-songwriter Alex Radus and prepare for "genre whiplash"!We sit down with him and learn about how people recognized his talent at a young age, earning him the opportunity to attend the Augusta Heritage Center - dedicated to the preservation of traditional American styles of music and performance.  There he is inspired by the sounds and mentors, learns many different styles of playing, begins writing the music he was meant to create, meets Maria Woodford to form the folk duo Duende and they start busking/touring across the country....and the rest is history.Now a resident and part of the fabric of the rich Lehigh Valley music scene, Alex continues to perform throughout the area solo, as a trio, and as the recently formed rock group Hot4Robot along with Dave Cahill.Alex performs acoustic - "No Control" from his catalog, and "Just Human" from the Hot4Robot album.This interview and the performances were recorded at the Bethlehem location of Lost Tavern Brewing.Grab a pint, pull up a chair, and enjoy our time with Alex Radus!Alex RadusWebsiteInstagramYoutubePatreonHot4RobotHot4Robot websiteInstagramFacebookAlex Radus / Hot4Robot MusicBandcamp (Buy direct from the artist!)Alex Radius SpotifyAlex Radus Apple MusicHot4Robot SpotifyHot4Robot Apple MusicText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Social Creatures - Your Next Favorite Band

Social Creatures - Your Next Favorite Band
We were introduced to Social Creatures back during Musikfest, and we stuck around to listen to them which made us late to our broadcast of the daily livestream because they were so good.  A true "Best of the Fest" for 2023 for sure.Based in Brooklyn, NY, Social Creatures is producing music that is both nostalgic and new, both fun danceable and emotionally raw.  Their music includes killer bass lines, shredding guitar licks, creative drum lines, dreamy synth, and vocals that are soaring and attainable.  They were selected by the Charter Arts class participating in the Musikfest Marketing program put on by ArtsQuest with area high schools, so their sound is something that everyone is enjoying.We'll share their songs "Half The Keys", "Nothing Changes", and some live footage we snagged during Musikfest that you'll want to see, especially the active shenanigans of the drummer.  So fun to watch!  Then we play their release from just last Friday (3/1/2024) "Fly The Loop".Lots of great music coming from Social Creatures and tours to support the releases, so be sure to catch them live when they play near you.  You will love it!Social Creatures LinksLinkTreeInstagramYoutubeSocial Creatures MusicSpotifyApple MusicAmazon MusicText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Brittany Ann Tranbaugh - Your Next Favorite Band

Brittany Ann Tranbaugh - Your Next Favorite Band
This week we are joined by the ever-clever, award-winning, queer Americana artist from Philadelphia - Brittany Ann Tranbaugh.  We have so much fun in this convo diving back to the early years and talking through all of the ups and downs that have lead her to the full-time musician life she is currently leading.Songwriting and performing has always come easy, but this super-talented musician who was hailed as being "the future of folk music" did go through a time that she needed to focus on her mental health.  Something that should be applauded and we can all benefit from hearing about.Back at it and better than ever since 2021, Brittany is on a roll that includes a John Lennon Songwriting Contest win for "Kiss You" and an album produced by Tyler Chester.  Can't wait to see where things continue to progress for Brittany Ann.Please enjoy our interview with her, including the sharing of recordings of "Kiss You", "The Good In That", and "Can't Wait, No Rush", and she also will perform music live that is both recently released, and no yet released (at the time of this recording).Brittany Ann Tranbaugh LinksWebsiteInstagramYoutubeFacebookBrittany Ann Tranbaugh MusicBandcamp (Music and Merch direct from the artist!)SpotifyApple MusicText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Shane Guerrette - Your Next Favorite Band

Shane Guerrette - Your Next Favorite Band
Are you ready for some hip, cool, under-the-radar blues??  Be prepared to be blown away by the smooth guitar and killer vocals of Shane Guerrette.Surrounded by music his whole life, he picked up the guitar at a young age, and enjoyed early success posting covers of popular songs in his style to YouTube.  However it never felt quite fulfilling and started to write and record his own music.  Which was also immediately successful.Shane's writing and performances are a throwback to a time filled with coolness, and he seems to produce a sound well beyond his years somehow.  He's even had his music featured in a Brunello Cuccinelli & Oliver Peoples sunglass ad.He's just starting a tour supporting Black Joe Lewis, and will be releasing new music heading in to the spring.  LinksWebsite: shaneguerrette.comYouTube ChannelSpotify ChannelText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".

Julia Steiner of Ratboys - Your Next Favorite Band
In 2023, Ratboys released their latest album The Window, and it was our fav of the year. We also got to see them perform at Johnny Brenda's in Sept last year. So when the opportunity came up for us to interview frontwoman and lead songwriter Julia Steiner we were so pumped!We spend time to hear more about the latest album, how they met producer Chris Walla and how he inspired them to try new things, and the stories behind some of tracks (can't believe they did "Black Earth, WI" in only 2 takes!). She also shares her passion for album sequencing and how she goes about selecting the order for the tracks on the album.We also learn more about her story finding her music path, how she met Dave Sagan in college, and how the rest of the band formed across their catalog of albums.In addition to "Black Earth, WI", we share the official video of "It's Alive!", some video we captured at the Johnny Brenda's show of "Charles Bernstein" (a deep cut off their first album), and close the show out with my fav track off the latest album "Empty".This is such a fun convo with one of the best out there right now - you won't want to miss it!LinksWebsite: ratboysband.comYouTube ChannelSpotify ChannelNepco Guitars: nepcoguitars.comText us your thoughts on this episode, and who should be OUR #NextFavBand...As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band".
