Wooo! We are BACK! In studio with the Vakili Band during a stop on their way to their show in DC at The Runaway tonight. Ben Ostrowski ’24 hung out with the full band for our first in studio band visit since the dreaded closure of 2020… So glad to start having bands back in and they were a great one. The whole band hung and talked process, their new Walking Sideways album, recording vs live versions, and how well Gordon packs the van. A lot of fun and a great way to get back into live interviews. Can’t wait for them to come back in the spring for a show in Baltimore. Meanwhile check out their new album and listen to the interview in case you missed it live.

Charlie Musselwhite Interview (TVC)

Saturday, August 6th, 2022 by The Professor

Charlie Musselwhite Album Cover The Volcano Chronicles Host Daniel Jones sat down with the incredible, legendary blues harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite to talk about his new album and amazing career playing with virtually every major blues musician.

Moving from Mississippi to Chicago along with thousands of others chasing factory jobs, he wound up immersed in the musical scene of the south side of town. Its hard to overstate Charlie’s influence on the revival of Chicago Blues in the 1960’s and his ongoing influence on players today. A great time was had by all 🙂

AOTW – Phoneboy

Tuesday, July 19th, 2022 by The Professor

ALBUM OF THE WEEK by Ben Ostrowski ’24

Phoneboy released a self-titled album as their first full-length project in 2021 and they absolutely killed it. A place where the toe-tapping grooves of pop meet the relatable lyrics of indie rock. The band describes a “phoneboy” as someone who is too sucked into their phone that they don’t pay attention to the world happening around them. On the contrary however, “Phoneboy,” from the New Jersey trio is guaranteed to get you off your phone and you’ll probably wind up rocking your socks off as a result.

Firstly, the vocals on this album are immaculately descriptive and give you a clear feeling for what the song is meant to be about. A song like “Fomo” that’s bursting with melodies and ramped-up choruses while exploring the madness of everyday anxieties. The guitar riffs are just as entrancing. From the intro and various riffs in the Weezer-inspired “Sweater Song” to the acoustics of ending track “Lately,” there is no sound not heard on this record. (more…)

Bonham-Bullick Band Interview (TVC)

Thursday, July 14th, 2022 by The Professor

Daniel Jones, host of The Volcano Chronicles Wednesdays 7-9pm (Eastern and Hawaiian) sat down with Deborah Bonham and Peter Bullick of the Bonham-Bullick Band to talk about their new self-titled album, life on the road, famous relatives and doing it on your own. You may recognize her name from her lesser known sibling John. Rumor had it he played drums in some band once upon a time…

Deborah’s strong vocals have put her in the front of huge audiences with a ton of classic rock artists and Peter’s guitar work led to a world tour with Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company, The Firm, Queen…).

They explored a lot of aspects of music, talent and managing a band as well as the life of a tribute band that does things a little differently. Clementine has a lot of thump as a drummer and trying to replicate the sounds of John Bonham is no small task! A great chat and a fantastic band. Definitely check them out after giving this one a listen! And check out their musical coaching channels for some cool insights.
