Interviews

Grateful Web Interview with Bonnie Paine

Many thoughts come to mind when one hears the phrase ‘Elephant Revival.’ For some, it’s a completely abstract concept. For others, the name rings true – although the many truths Elephant Revival listeners happen upon through their music are many, there’s a connection we all feel written within each song Elephant Revival brings to the stage.

Grateful Web Interview with Jeff Pevar

One of the finest tribute projects honoring the work of Grateful Dead is the instrumental ensemble of Jazz is Dead. Formed in the late 1990s after the passing of Dead guitarist and bandleader Jerry Garcia, Jazz is Dead featured the best cats out there including drummer Billy Cobham and the late keyboardist T. Lavitz. As the project evolved other tremendously talented players entered the picture to continue this strikingly singular idea.

Grateful Web Interview with Mike Love

Before his appearance at the 2015 ARISE Music Festival, Mike Love graces his fans packed outdoors in a modest, standing patio venue in historic district of Denver.  His latest record Love Will Find A Way will be released September 1, 2015 along with additional shows and festival dates across the US during September of 2015.  Grateful Web sits with Mike Love to discuss his new album and his revolutionary music that is the focus of his rise. 

Grateful Web Interview / Marco Benevento

A live act virtuoso and seemingly always sparked by his curiosity and musical adventurism, Marco Benevento, is developing another instrument – his voice, which is featured in his 5th and latest record Swift.  Just coming off his performance and celebration at the Gathering of the Vibes 20th anniversary, Marco graciously talks to Grateful Web in the late hours, just after midnight.  Marco talks vocals, piano, Swift…goats, royal potato & Bob Dylan.

Grateful Web Interview with Michael Travis

Multi-instrumentalist Michael Travis is no stranger to taking music to new places. As one of the core founders of The String Cheese Incident, Michael and the gang have morphed from a primarily bluegrass-based ensemble to an ever-shifting, genre-bending circus of sound that continues to grow. Additionally, his electronic group EOTO (w/ Jason Hann), which began as a liquid downtempo duo, has grown into a force to be reckoned with in the electronic realm.

Grateful Web Interview / Greener Grounds

In and around Denver, swiftly permeating the Denver music scene and festivals is Greener Grounds.  If you have not heard of this young, instrumental group, you will soon -- Greener Grounds is featured as the “Top 5 ARISE Festival Colorado Bands” in The Untz.  Whether you are into jam, rock, trance, funk, dance, electronica, jam-tronica, psychedelic…the fusion of the previous, it doesn’t matter.  Check Greener Grounds’ recent EP release, Photosynthesis.  Grateful Web had a chance to talk to several members of Greener

Grateful Web Interview with Front Country

Front Country plays Bay Area Bluegrass, a cross-genre jaunt spanning indie, folk, americana and traditional bluegrass. Thier sound is accessible for everyone. Front Country is Adam Roszkiewicz (MANDOLIN), Jacob Groopman (GUITAR, VOCALS), Melody Walker (VOCALS, GUITAR), Jordan Klein (BANJO, VOCALS), Leif Karlstrom (Violin), and Zach Sharpe (BASS).

Grateful Web Interview w/ Roger McNamee

In the midst of the “Fare Thee Well:  Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead”, Grateful Web talks to Roger McNamee of Moonalice.  McNamee shares candidly Moonalice music, technology, their philosophy and vehement choice to live and play by their own credo -- perhaps similar to that of the Grateful Dead – to thrive – and have fun -- in today’s music industry. 

GW:  Hello Roger.  Where are you at?

Grateful Web Interview w/ Samantha Fish

Samantha Fish, a young and incredibly talented guitarist, visited Fayetteville, AR for a show recently. Grateful Web sat down with her to discuss her experience as a musician and her new album, Wild Heart.

GW Describe your music to someone who hasn’t listened to it before.

Grateful Web Interview w/ Oteil Burbridge

While no longer touring with Tedeschi Trucks Band or the newly retired Allman Brothers Band, Oteil Burbridge is still finding balance between his family life and career. As one of the most recognizable bass players to crisscross the jam band web and beyond, this isn’t as easy as it seems. While he will be hitting the road this summer with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, weekend gigs and festivals are those that allow him to be with his young son and wife the most.
