The Seth Horan Podcast
Trying to make relevant art in a world where those seeking relevance decry art and those seeking art decry relevance.Bassist-singer-songwriter Seth Horan cultivates an appreciation for artists who aren't tailored for mass consumption - music, interviews, assorted ramblings. Possible dog sounds in the background.
To most of the world, Tim Snider is best known as the Violin Warrior in the band Nahko and Medicine for the People. But my fans might remember Tim from when we shared stages together back in the day, on the road during his time as the leader of a young band called Sol'Jibe.I know few people who’ve experienced 'the music life' from as many perspectives as Tim has.He started as a bandleader, and he built his band up to full-time multi-regional success around America.Then he went solo, and made his mark up and down the west coast as a one man violin looping show... and now he finds himself as a sideman in one of the fastest rising acts I’ve seen in recent musical history.We covered a LOT in a fascinating, two-part conversation... during the fiercest rainstorm Central New York has seen in years.Tim's website: http://timsnidermusic.comNahko & Medicine for the People: http://nahko.com/home/(Want the FULL interview?

Episode 12 - DANIELLE MIRAGLIA (Part 1)
Danielle Miraglia has been a staple on the Boston music scene for just about as long as I’ve been playing there.She’s just released her 4th official album - All My Heroes Are Ghosts - with her band, The Glory Junkies, and she’s been touring for the past few months in support of it. I caught her show here in Syracuse a couple weeks ago, and the next day she sat down in my kitchen for my first in-person interview -- and what turned out to be a wide-ranging conversation.As you’ll hear, her record is fantastic, and you can get it, as well as all Danielle’s other music at: http://daniellem.com(Want the FULL interview?

The Seth Horan Podcast - Episode 11 - How To Do Bass Wrong (Part 1)
The most misunderstood aspect of what I do is that I do it... with a bass. This is because some people see the bass as a young instrument; a barely-explored voice just coming into its place in the world.... and others see it strictly as the embodiment of a sacred musical job that must never be changed.

The Seth Horan Podcast - Episode 10 - FACK (Part 1)
F.A.Q! It never sounds glamorous, but in this episode, I guarantee I answer that thing you’ve been quietly wondering about, so listen up! :) Through parts 1 & 2, I answer listener-submitted questions covering everything from iTunes, to touring, to my puppy, to guitar shredding. Not for the faint of heart! ;) NOTES light reading on Spotify: UPDATE - Apparently, my info on Spotify royalties actually errs on the side of generosity.

The Seth Horan Podcast - Episode 7 - DAVID PETERS (Part 1)
My guest is singer/songwriter David Peters. Based in Los Angeles, he's a critically acclaimed and sought-after producer and engineer (in addition to working with nearly everyone I know in some way, he's also helped create four of my own albums). Recently, he's focused his efforts on the recreation of “The Secret Album”, which was an intimate song collection he made 18 years ago and only showed to a handful of people… one of which was me. It is one of the most profoundly moving records I've ever heard, and I've been waiting for the day he would resurrect this music and release it to the world. In this episode, we listen to samples of the songs that will be on “Makeshift Memorials", and talk about the process of revisiting such intimate pieces, so many years later. MAKESHIFT MEMORIALS (Selections from The Secret Album) WILL BE RELEASED THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER 2017 Listen and buy it through David's Bandcamp site:http://bit.ly/2CAg3xcand visit:http://www.oakhouserecording.com follow David to stay in the know and get the official announcement: https://www.instagram.com/thedavidpeters/ https://www.facebook.com/david.peters.524 Other albums/artists/references: The Drug of Dreams https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-drug-of-dreams/596211731 Soft Gifts For Mayhem https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/soft-gifts-for-mayhem/85974017 Oakhouse Recording (David's studio): http://www.oakhouserecording.com references to the “Falafelelf” project David mentions (under Discography): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emit_Bloch The video that influenced David's career choice: https://youtu.be/Ahf2B_eZUc4
