Chris Catalena is a singer and songwriter from the hill country of Texas whose excellent self-titled solo debut feels like the soundtrack to a Coen Brothers film. This is our first in a new series of bonus episodes- conversations that deserve to be heard but may not make sense as feature episodes.
Bill Scorzari enters The Marinade! Bill’s record Now I’m Free is set to be released on September 20, 2019. We had the honor of an advanced listen to the album and it is a stunning work. Bill’s poetic lyrics are a frozen rope to the heart. We talk about how the record came together, the difference between being an attorney and being a creative, and much more. You can find all things Bill Scorzari at billscorzari.com, and on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Meghan Hayes is an outstanding songwriter based in East Nashville who recently released one of our favorite records of 2019. “Seen Enough Leavers” is a gorgeous record completed in the wake of a very difficult life transition. Meghan graciously agreed to sit down with The Marinade and talk about the making of the record, mental health awareness, the magic of music, and so much more.
Amy McCarley splashes into The Marinade! Amy is a singer, songwriter, guitar player, and all around bad ass who has just released a wonderful record called MECO. We talk about the process that led to MECO’s creation, how Amy gave up her job as a NASA contractor to pursue music full time, and why Jason Earle needs to tighten up and finally play an open mic!
