Jason catches up with several artists while serving as emcee of the Rockin' Robinson festival in Orlando's Milk District. Andrew Yeomanson (aka DJ Le Spam) stops by The Marinade tent to talk about recording and performing with Spam AllStars, the universality of Johnny Cash, and what makes Miami special. Plus, Gainesville, Florida's Savants of Soul stop by after their set to talk creative process and break some big news! This is Part I of a two-part special Rockin' Robinson series.
Sadler Vaden teleports into The Marinade! Sadler is probably best known for his work playing guitar in Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, but he was also in Drivin' N Cryin' and has created some fantastic solo music. We discuss what he has learned from his famous bandmates, how he approaches the solo process, and just when the hell Oasis is going to finally reunite. Sadler is a massive guitar player, an impressive songwriter, and a supremely nice individual. Cheers, y'all.

Also, enjoy music from Sadler, the bands we discuss, and some things I'm getting down on with our @spotify playlist.
Legendary songwriter James McMurtry takes a dip in The Marinade. McMurtry is the genius behind such tunes as "Levelland" and "We Can't Make it Here Anymore." His 2015 release Complicated Game is one of our favorites in recent memory and includes a song we can't seem to get out of our heads, "You Got to Me."
In this episode, McMurtry discusses what really scares white supremacists, the evolution of his creative process from bar napkins to iPhones, and where he gets some of those incredible song lines. Also, Jason Earle opens up about his creative process and the heavy day that preceded this interview. Cheers, y'all.
