Hey, y’all. I am Shay. This is the on air indie show.
Welcome & enjoy. Episode 58.
First, music history for June 29th.
In 1984 Bruce Springsteen kicked off the first leg of his Born in the USA Tour with a three-night run at the Civic Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Springsteen would play 156 shows ending on October 2, 1985 in Los Angeles.
Jared Harper is back on the podcast for a second guest spot.
He is an acoustic-style singer-songwriter born and raised in San Francisco. Following his time on Season 18 of The Voice, he had over half a million views on YouTube
With music influenced by the early days of modern music during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, his lyrics remind you of those written by Lennon and McCartney to the anthems by Oasis and The Strokes.
Today we spin original “All For Me” and Marvin Gaye cover “Let’s Get It On”. Both are incredible releases
Before The Voice, Jared headlined shows in San Francisco. His act has toured London, UK and Los Angeles.
Enjoy the show!
