It's a dirty job...
My interview with Krista Detor. It was very cool. Check out part of her bio below. She will be playing in Omaha on Jan 26th at Mick's.
Her album Mudshow is fantastic and I urge everyone to pick it up on iTunes or from her website.
An up and coming Americana songwriter and performer, Krista began her performing career playing the wedding-cocktail party circuit as a sixteen year old in Los Angeles. While running at breakneck speed from the onset of adulthood Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ hiding out in Louisiana shotgun shacks, a flat in Seoul, a travel trailer, thirteen different apartments and one haunted house Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ sheÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s managed to live and perform all over the U.S. and parts of Asia. Around the turn of the century, she inexplicably found herself in the Midwest and fell in love with the rolling green hills of Southern Indiana.
With the release of her new CD, Mudshow, Krista has begun to reach new levels of critical acclaim and national attention, as she tours the U.S.

Interview with Jerzy Jung
There are two things you are probably wondering about Jerzy Jung. Wonder no more. 1.) Yes, Jerzy Jung is her real name. 2.) No, her new music, a world away from previous recordings featuring only piano and vocals, is not what you might have expected a few years ago from this NJ singer/songwriter. Raised in southern New Jersey by parents who played everything from ACDC to Marvin Gaye to Joni Mitchell in the car, Jerzy developed a hunger for all types of sounds early on.
Since her college graduation in 2004, Jerzy has been entertaining and affecting east coast audiences with her sultry yet powerful vocals, poetic lyrics, and emotive live performances. Most recently, she has taken her training to the next level as a student of renowned vocal coach Don Lawrence (Tracy Bonham, Fuel, Bono, The Rolling Stones). Her new 4-song EP, produced by Alex Houton of Wu Shu Entertainment Group, is a mix of dynamic lead vocals; airtight harmonies; clever and energetic arrangements for guitar, bass, strings, and drums; and dreamy electronic accents.

Bickering Sisters Show
Me and my kids made a little skit and put it on YouTube.com. It turned out quite silly, but it's fun to watch.

ON THE PLANE!
If you were a ticket agent for the VIP plane to hell who would YOU put on it. It's a little game we play when hanging around a table of good wine and great friends. Some think it's a bit morbid, but then they don't know our sense of humor. This episode I welcome the originator of "On the plane," our friend Ms. Skyelar Hawkins. She, Laurie and myself argue over who should be on the plane. Is it good podcasting? I thought so. Now it's your turn to chime in.
I should be posting the list on my Myspace site. Check it out.
Don't Be Late
My band Matt Whipkey and Anonymous American released our second full length record last week to critical acclaim. Check out three songs on this episode.
