From the dream album that is available now via easy street records. Also you can get it on iTunes as well I'm joined by AJ and Ingrid through. How often do people say in Rico and then they adds -- to the area and fairly -- -- very often you can add tens of outlets uh huh. -- on base at -- course AJ on on vocal and guitar. AJ when did you first play guitar man. I was thirteen years old like I began to myself in Oakland. Really isn't what inspired you to pick it up with something like did did you see somebody playing in church or did you see something on MTV what was that. That catalyst that that meeting -- OK. I want to play it was mean this kid who were teeing for a teacher. In middle school actually a -- playing I want to play -- I picked it up and and there are went you know. Really what was the first song you learned how to play. On the -- Things I wanna get away from the crowd it's really anxious. Right time right on very very cool. Public. A budget -- Andre. Got my first guitar when I was eight and I was pretty mad because I wanted something else for Christmas late in -- game. Concern -- I was probably thirteen inch. And I sort of play in the basement I was nineteen. In a family man with them like my mom and my grandfather -- that we played like funk music around town. It's pretty good time. That's -- I've actually I've heard that story a number of times with with people that. That really tune turn into musicians and career musicians that it's -- I didn't know that what the what I wanted or like it wasn't the right. That you've got you've got to Qatar and you want database or or something like that so it's cool the way it's like -- enough. -- -- Now I think I think -- give this a world definitely and see what happens very cool you can see Iran Jones in the way Friday may second at the tractor. Tavern tickets are going really really fast you've got to. Hop on this before the show is sold out there is such a really really cool. Buzz. Happening for you guys -- and the proof is in the -- as I I have lots of conversations with lots of really talented people about. How do you do this in and the ways to go about doing things but at the end of the -- -- it comes down to the songs and people. Just seemed to be responding. In such a real bra emotional way to the music. Is there ever -- you guys that we were we were talking about during during the song we were talking about your performance at -- fest. Has there which shows have been major a little nervous to play because at this point you guys have played some pretty -- higher profile gigs. Yeah I would I would say for me it was. But it does Stefan was mourned the more nerve -- -- me just because it was you know a test -- up against some of the best names the well known names in the nation yeah and if not the world to see if I could hang you know -- our own thing which is Tomasson you know under the best you can definitely super nervous going into that and so when I was little nervous about and this was more so because things just kept kind of going wrong before the show started. Com was the BB king Charlotte the more theater and honest there's lot of variables being played before it's over. You know we came out playing you know very humbly and and and clubs and bars and stuff would go wrong all the time so I would. It's an and it is -- I mean it's not just music it's life in general you can't learn things. In a positive way for musicians to it's really really good but if it is how you deal with those things that happened because it it happens constantly has. What was it like at -- to recently mean BB king. It was surreal -- the only think it's actually happening buddies like sit right in front and you look at this legend and a man who influenced music for our -- a -- -- -- -- time you know. Trip in late he likes it they're talking with cash and you know. Aegis it was it's hard to -- and you don't -- -- -- -- to leave those situationally I just sat there and currencies rebuking and. And you're just thinking just -- cool the decision as a regular guy he just he puts his shoes on just like me you know suddenly these these things happen but it is. It can be challenging when it's like this is this is somebody you'd -- and you respect. And you wanna do the best it can you wanna. You want to leave a good impression you know because -- get one chance so that's really really cool. We're educators and business and come back with with more from Iran Jones and the way gonna talk about. Well. You're aligned with with sir mix -- lot I would love to know some of that because we're big fans over here Seattle rocked added up -- you heard about this -- we do something every year called Seattle -- they were we just play. Northwest artists from the past. All day long and we had a that we had at the -- and have some mixed in there we had to have some extra lot so it's like never more and then here's some excellent because. We eleven. That everybody thought -- well look look at cities -- I am not an ugly night KI SW -- it -- Michael to find out -- allow local. To check out podcast and two link up with the bands that I play to find out about upcoming shows and to submit your opinions material. Do we get up allow local page -- KI SW dot com. I'm joined by the majority of the band I at one point used to refer to it. -- Jones and play and until I got to -- it's like a Iran and I'm like Intel -- on the that's my story and sickened to joined by AJ also Dion Andre in Rico -- -- -- the -- the last name spelled out for rejecting what's -- that as well. You could see. Iran Jones and the way this coming Friday night the second at the tractor tavern who -- -- playing with -- month. See here that's going to be the duke has been and is open up and in Russia's missiles -- -- tonight excellent and I I I heard from the little mouse as a go on maybe ballpark 10 o'clock. 2 o'clock 10:30 AM OK perfect songs to be there. Hold up the show until I get there will apparently can't and -- -- It go and let that there's there's so many things every time we we go to commercial break -- on there's -- these cool things that come -- to talk about but I do. I do wanna talk. About your connection with her excellent and how that relationship started because it's fascinating so can can you share commutes and how did I become to be. So. This is back in 2012 we were in the this battle of the bands and scope are rock rising here wry yet I remember that. Yes so we we were in that that competition and where she won in Seattle so we read you know kind of got through round two in the finals who -- who represent our region. In our area and in order to get to the next round after that everything went to the world wide battles there who you were -- battles are only on -- So we have to acquire sort of on a -- to its next level so that social media Saturday so we have. Put social media we're doing tons and tons of shows and through that hum. We are seen by some mutual friends of of mixed in self. And they had called him and told me that he can check us out. And so we -- Stewart Dooley show one night the rat in the raven and he shows up to come check us out there rat in the race AAR IPH had half I. And Adam SO -- he walks in and was floor -- dawn an offer to produce problems. Will what was it what was it like what was it like to to work on him and did you guys. Always agree on everything creatively. Yeah actually go which -- as we -- she flow into Oregon. In terms of work with each other pertinent producer artist. And it was great work with the -- yet it it I think it helped me evolve into this point that a man now and -- -- of recent level artistry musicianship. On the I don't think I would have achieved otherwise so it was really cool would have to -- to work under him in and Condit to -- like we know what it was like. To view the world -- -- his face the music world is articulate and siphon that in his his mentors recruitment and then to have information -- taught him to talk to me. As was not some. So -- I word were so incredibly. Lucky in the northwest with an N I I kind of apologize when I say this but I think. There are certain musicians that are our elders. And they deserve our love and our respect I think about -- I think about Jack and -- there's tad Doyle there's a number of different musicians out there who have just. Who have been around the block a timer too and they've got just. Great insights and perspective on things because they've been down the road. And back and I just I love when icy. Younger people collaborating with those who have held it down in decades prior in in our neck of the -- I think that's really cool. The first video I sop. From you was the video for feeding from the doubles hands and -- spend it was the song that really. Spoke to meet. Right off the bat and and the video was really moving I think it really captured captured the essence of the song. That the video starts out with the UC mix right there and tell me a little bit about the concept for the ideally how did you did you put that together because I feel like it really reflected the song like it but it fit in nicely. Via so whenever. I write or even create music -- very visual person. So for me I can't write these stories with the us and kind of a visual idea in mind to start with tell -- like a movie in my head and so. This is kind of what I saw when I originally wrote the song and it kind of sent out -- table with the the video producer and director and you know my manager my guys we talk about the around some ideas as to how we could lead to produce concept of life and put it in and kind of reform of the music video console. On -- -- perfectly coming up columnist came together to route to a story. It and it really got I got I've got some more questions for -- let's go ahead and play the song it is being from the devil's hands -- -- -- night KI SW. It is well look. And I. You can track a little bit. And and it's. And. -- -- -- Okay. And. I didn't even. Home. -- -- -- And -- Home. We'll never. Used them. And right now. -- Yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. Okay. And it's.

I am ready to play some new music yeah I mean that there's always a blowing right to -- in the music going and you you wanna start playing the music right away you know because he -- like -- refreshing creative but -- At the same time we still -- find different ways to reinvent the new stuff you know the stuff that you've already written I mean and so we we just I mean. With a kind of band that we don't ever play the same thing twice you know we'll play the same song but it's going to be a different version -- have -- time we step on stage -- Excellent when you guys were on the CW's banned in Seattle knew about that was really really cool. Did you did you get some good feedback from that -- that that television exposure has he done. Between that you've done a couple other TV things as well right yet.
