The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 23 | 2018 in Review Part I | Kevin Maines talks The Wood Brothers

Kevin Maines of The Volts strolls over to The Marinade Studios with guitar in hand to record the first of our 2018 in Review series. To end an outstanding year of music, we invited several artists whose work we respect to talk about some of 2018's highlights. Kevin and I talk about the Grammy-nominated album "One Drop of Truth" from The Wood Brothers, then Kev plays a couple of tunes for us- a cover of "River Takes the Town" by The Wood Brothers and an unreleased tune of his own! Cheers, y'all.

The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 10 | Col. Bruce Hampton Bonus Throwback Episode

Col. Bruce Hampton was a legendary musician, actor, producer, and all around nice guy. He was in Sling Blade, the Run the Jewels video for “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and that’s just the tip of his IMDb page.

Col. Bruce was also a musical pioneer and one hell of a nice guy. I had the honor of interviewing Bruce backstage at Suwannee Roots Revival 2016.

This was one of the first episodes we recorded for The Marinade. A lot has changed since then, from production to interview style, but we want you all to have a chance to hear this wonderful conversation. As was his way, he made me feel like an old friend. Rest in peace, Col. Bruce.

The music in this episode is from Deadman De Los Santos off of the forthcoming EP 'Deadman and Stranger.' The EP will be released on April 6th. 

The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 7 | Cory Branan and Jon Snodgrass

Wolf and Cobra belly flop into The Marinade! This is our silliest episode to date and a dream come true. Cory Branan and Jon Snodgrass are two of our all-time favorite songwriters. Branan's new record Adioswas released in 2017 and is one of our favorite records of the year. Snodgrass is best known for his work with Drag the River but also has an excellent solo catalog as well as work with the bands Scorpios and Armchair Martian. We joke about Jon's indecipherable emails and proclivity for 'playing' drums, dive deep into political waters, and discuss the creative process for each of these brilliant writers.
