Our favorite musical madman, Ed Roman was recently interviewed by international instrument retailer, Musicians Friend, for their informative blog, “The Hub.” Ed, who is a multi-instrumentalist, spoke about his love of the banjo, and how he got his start playing the instrument: “When I was much younger, Earl Scruggs was my main man. When I was very young I saw the movie “Deliverance”. This film is filled with wonderful, classical American banjo and flattop guitar playing.”

Americana/folk duo, Bradford Loomis & Beth Whitney were recently interviewed by top indie music site, The Indie Authority. Here is an excerpt from their conversation:
Have you ever been fed up with playing music or with band members?
Every relationship will have trials, differing opinions, and challenges of various natures. We all try very hard to be open and honest about what works for us and what we need. And furthermore, we are committed to being as considerate and gracious to each other as we possible can.
What was your first concert experience
(Bradford) Janet Jackson, oddly enough. I took my girlfriend at the time. (Beth) Jewel is an early one I will never forget. Read More
Award-winning singer/songwriter, Jiggley Jones was recently interviewed by music blog, More More Sound. Here’s an excerpt from their conversation:
What is your impression of the current country music scene? Do you see it as an evolving genre or as something that sticks to the roots?
It’s definitely evolving and it reminds me of the way the Rock genre is always evolving with at least it’s toe touching some root of the original. It’s not “your father’s” Country music anymore. Sometimes change is a tough pill to swallow but most times it’s a good thing. My analogy has always been that if Country Music was a river, then all the “new” type Country would be the tributaries that branch out and reach people that normally wouldn’t have been reached.

Entertwine: When did you both meet and start playing music?
Bradford: I kept hearing about Beth and her husband, and had checked out their music online. I was really struck with the depth and evocative nature of her lyrics coupled with beautiful melody. So I asked her if she would play a show with me. Nov. 17th 2012 I believe.
Beth: I said sure, played my set, and then Bradford took the stage and just took the house down. I knew he had it: whatever that thing is that wakes up the soul. No question. Read More
