My guest today is Ryan Earnhardt, a video creator and studio owner who produces a YouTube show called Creative Sound Lab. It covers recording-focused topics and out-of-the-box topics such as DIY effects. He recently built a Pooper Time Cube (A delay made from 4 inch drainage pipe) and created a reverb out of a garden hose.

Creative Sound Lab stresses fundamental recording techniques and capturing real sounds such as using re-amping during mixing or using echo chambers for vocals - even if that chamber is your living room! Ryan has also partnered in teaching with Brian McTear of Weathervane Music and author Eric Sarafin aka “Mixerman”.

Ryan started Creative Sound Lab in 2013 because he saw a need for something different than computer screen videos that mostly covered mixing topics. He currently has over 37,000 subscribers and hosts over a dozen online courses at Creative Sound Lab.tv

My guest today is Brad Dollar an empowering Grammy nominated producer & engineer who has been a part of over 1000 released titles. He has worked with major artists like G-Eazy, Bob Weir, & Slightly Stoopid as well as rising talent like Madame Gandhi, Dovydas, & Catch Prichard. And has ultimately been a part of over 1000 released titles.

Brad also started Zoo Labs in Oakland CA, a non profit that accelerates music career development. Zoo Labs’ mission is too empower artists to create music on a self directed and successful career path among other things.

So I am looking forward to learning more about some of the cool records that Brad has made and also to better understand the ways that we can create our own music and get it out to the world. As musical entrepreneurs we want to know what we can do to make our music sustainable, thriving, and fun.

My guest today is Paul Niehaus IV, a musician, engineer, and producer born and raised in St Louis MO. Paul is the operator of Blue Lotus Studio, an audiophile-oriented recording studio in his basement in Saint Louis. He loves natural and hi-fidelity tones in the studio, and strives to cultivate an environment in which artists can get creative and be themselves.

Paul has served on the Board of Directors for the Saint Louis Blues Society since 2014, and has produced three celebrated compilation albums for the group. He has also co-produced two permanent blues-oriented museum exhibits, one for the National Blues Museum (in STL) and one for the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience (Meridian, MS).

In 2016 Paul founded the Blue Lotus record label, specializing in Soul, Blues, Folk, and Americana. it was his production of super groovy soul records with artists like Gene Jackson, and Ms Zeno The Mojo Queen that really caught my attention. Plus I am a big fan of anything cool happening in my home away from home St Louis MO.

My guest today is Hayley McLean, a Vancouver born producer, writer, and instrumentalist. Her musical vision, Texada, is a mix of original styles that infuse elements of transient pop, smooth hypnotizing vocals and her fantastic soulful guitar playing.

Hayley is embracing the ability to produce pop songs with a computer using programmed drums, and capturing synths and shimmering otherworldly guitars rather than traditional rock and roll.

Following her Texada ‘Blue’ release in February of 2016 release, the track “All My Life” made it’s way onto both Canadian and US Spotify viral charts earning it over 2.8 million streams. And her self made video for a remix cover of Walking on the Moon was a video shot and edited using just an iPhone.

Over the past year Hayley has been building and performing with a custom live rig that allows her to bring the Texada project to life through a system of looping, keyboards, acoustic drums, and guitar virtuosity to create an engaging and diverse musical spectacle.
