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.

The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 15 | Travis Meadows

The bio on Travis Meadows' website reads,

"An orphan who turned into a preacher
A preacher who turned into a songwriter
A songwriter that turned into a drunk
A drunk that is learning to be a human being"

Travis is a songwriter and singer originally from Mississippi who now makes his home in Nashville. He has written songs for Wynonna Judd, Dierks Bentley, and Blackberry Smoke among others. We talk about alcoholism, getting clean, co-writing versus writing solo, his creative process, and so much more. Travis is an amazing guy and was so gracious with his time. Cheers, y'all.

The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 12 | Matthew Logan Vasquez

Matthew Logan Vasquez is one of our all-time favorite songwriters. Best known for his work with Delta Spirit, Matt is a good dude and he opened up in a huge way. Few songwriters are willing to take the chances Matt takes. His music ranges from Americana to rock to folk and soul.

Matt's most recent release is an EP called "Texas Murder Ballads." Go get a copy after you listen to this episode. 

We talk about micro-dosing mushrooms, buddy records, love, and the inspiration of ghosts. 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 9 | Trae Crowder

Trae Crowder cannonballs into The Marinade. Trae is probably best known for his viral videos railing against racism, Trump, Nazis, sexism and all manner of conservative bull shit. He is a Southern man with liberal sensibilities and one of the funniest comedians in the world right now.

Morgan Freeman and Whoopi Goldberg are fans. So are we. We had the honor of talking about the creative process with Trae ahead of his show at The Comedy Zone in Jacksonville, FL. He was thoughtful, engaging, and hilarious. Get down on it.
