Every once in a while, I hear a Hip Hop artist that really excites me. Tra1n is currently that artist!

The adept writing, smooth singing, jazzy, soulful music and his brilliant, bassy delivery make for an amazing mix, and the production is phenomenal!

I was able to have a really intriguing socially-distanced conversation with Tra1n at Friggin Fabulous Studios.

You definitely want to add this one to your iTunes and Spotify play lists!

Part2:

Sid Whelan is an enthusiastically and unapologetically old-school and eclectic songwriter, singer, bandleader and guitarist who has earned praise for his well-crafted lyrics and his harmonically rich guitar voicings. He has studied songwriting with Grammy-winning artists Steve Earle and Chely Wright.

He was also lead guitarist with various world music acts including the Lijadu Sisters and later Afroblue. 

I had the honor to master his new album, "Waiting For Payday", and the pleasure to sit down with him for this two part interview!
