Episode 11 – Reading Music / Learning Music Theory

The Diggem crew focuses their attention on the benefits and disadvantages of reading music and knowing music theory, getting “boxed in” by rules, playing with people a bit more skilled, and doing your thing either way. Also, don’t forget to check out Alexa’s gig at Molly Malones on December 10 at 8:00 pm if you’re in the LA area.

Episode 10 – Billy Lawler

In this episode the crew welcomes singer/songwriter and Sacramento native Billy Lawler to the studio to discuss his upcoming debut EP, deciding to take up singing at a “late” age, and what inspired him to release his music. Billy also treats us to a live performance of two of his incredibly moving songs which you can not miss! And… Rich is bad with names.

Episode 9 – Favorite Albums

In this episode, the crew talks about the top 5 albums of all time that really “struck” each of them in one way or another and why. Listen up as there is quite a range here, some not so surprising, and a few shockers as well (you think you know someone and then…) Young listeners in particular can get a good introduction to some excellent starting points if they’re looking to expand their musical horizons.

Episode 6 – Alexa Merrill

Singer/songwriter Alexa Merrill drops by to talk about the songwriting process, collaborating with a producer, and tips for taking care of the voice. Alexa also performs two songs from her recently released EP “Heart Shaped Clock.” This is one episode you don’t want to miss!
