"Well, when I sit back and I think back about my life I think here I am at 70, I have a great career going, I have a beautiful wife, I have three great kids who are all brilliant musicians and very talented kids and there’s a lot of love in my family and I just feel like I’m the luckiest guy on the earth. I have it all."

Q&A with John San Juan of Hushdrops, a three-piece rock band from Chicago with “live band energy” naturalism

"Music is forever. If you feel that some beloved element is underemphasized in subsequent eras, surely you can always bring it with you. A bygone musical moment was always ephemeral, and...if you can remember it, it isn't really bygone. No real hopes or fears. I hope some special person always has a song in their heart."

Q&A with Italian guitarist/songwriter Marco Mattei, debut solo album with mix of prog-rock, dream-pop, folk and world music

"I feel our society is becoming more divided. A lot of the social tension we are experiencing comes from people trying to defend their views, that are rooted in their identity. However, if you think about it, many aspects that we perceive to be defining our identity such as the color of our skin, our gender, the time and place we are born and even the people that we meet during our journey are not under our control."…

Q&A with Greek drummer Nikos Papavranoussis, graduated from the Dante Agostini School of Drums with the first prize

"The impact of music and arts in general I think is very strong. They are part of everyday life for everyone. It has always been like that. There are no communities that survived without their art. Music has the advantage that it is letting you create your images. To dream by yourself."

Q&A with singer Joanna Best of Virginia & The Slims, classic Jump Blues n' Swing group based in North Carolina

Posted on November 19, 2021 at 9:00am 0 Comments

"I've coined my own phrase when it comes to musical paths: what is noble in making music is making music. Music is like eating. It's never wrong to eat. Some folks will covet certain music more than others, and as with cooking certain universal truths relating to physics and aesthetics will prevail, but the quality is always personal, for listener and for performer."

"Music reflects all of our stories. It’s a record of our history. Music brings people together and crosses barriers that otherwise wouldn’t happen. It creates opportunities, for listeners and creators, to collaborate and explore new ideas and perspectives."

Q&A with Cuban-Mexican-Canadian Ramon Taranco runs the gamut from Blues to Afro-Cuban and NOLA music

Posted on November 10, 2021 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"Blues and Jazz are very honest and direct musical forms. As Keith Richards once said, “Blues is a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.” Sincere and honest Blues and Jazz music won't lie or mince words. As a working bluesman you try to face life and music with a “sharp stick” and see the world through a prism of your truth because Blues and Jazz are about musical and social individuality."

Q&A with legendary blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, has spent countless years treating the blues with full respect

"I think that the music is expression for the people and there’s always some kind of a big trend going on, but I think the blues will always be around like jazz and like people that want to play music on their instruments live and I don’t see any problem with it stopping. I think it’s going to keep going and keep going and there’ll always be new people to pick it up and run with it. I think it’s just going to keep going no matter what the fancy trends are…
