Grateful Web Interview w/ Pigeons Playing Ping Pong's Greg Ormont

Before and after the Pigeons Playing Ping Pong show on St Patrick’s Day, I had the opportunity to chat with the band's front man, Greg Ormont. In the past couple years, he and his three other band members have been touring extensively, playing spectacular shows, and have even founded their own festival, Domefest. If you haven't heard of them yet, I'd bet you will soon.

Grateful Web Interview with Ricky Stein (@ SXSW)

GW: Thanks so much for taking the time to answer some questions, you’ve had a whirlwind SXSW week and GW appreciates your time.  To get started, give us a little history into the evolution of you as an artist.  You’ve been playing for almost a decade, not to mention that music is in your blood because your dad is also a musician.  What was the impetus to become one yourself?  Did you begin, in the days of those solo hole-in-wall gigs, with a clear image of yourself as an Americana artist?

Grateful Web Interview with Keb' Mo'

The blues is a music that is engrained in our musical history whether you think it is or not. After reviewing Buddy Guy’s show a few months ago, and conducting this interview with Keb’ Mo’, I have been humbled to listen to and record a live history of a music genre that although its members are dwindling, its passion, invention, and legacy will never weaken.

Grateful Web Interview with Dweezil Zappa

When guitarist Dweezil Zappa, son of guitarist, composer, bandleader, actor, social activist, and pseudo-comedian Frank Zappa created the Zappa Plays Zappa project in 2006, he intended it as a tribute to his father’s legacy, a one-off that might reconnect some old fans and breed some new ones in the process. Eight years down the road his project is more popular than ever.

Grateful Web Interview with Cloud Cult

This interview has been sitting in my ‘need to write’ pile for longer than I’d like to admit. Honestly, I’m not sure my lowly English words can do this band justice. Their music seems part of my heart; some days it pumps my blood others it lifts me into smiles and dancing. There is so much meaning in each word Cloud Cult writes. They speak from experience and plug in the connection we have with every thing – this growing up we’re all doing together, every day, for our whole lives.

Grateful Web Interview with The Revivalists

Real musicians make their home anywhere, including the cramped backstage area at one of Austin’s best music venues, The Parish.  Over cups of instant coffee, Grateful Web’s Caitlin St. Pierre sat down with The Revivalists, who are not strangers to life on the road.
