Steve Poltz has released 13 albums, written songs that have sold 15 million copies (Jewel’s “You Were Meant For Me”) and has developed a style of performance that incorporates iPhones, folk acoustic stylings, with comedy, satire, and personal truth that are told through both song and sketch based dialogue. He performs hundreds of times annually, and wins over any crowd with his undeniable charisma and mastery of stage presence. We talk about word of mouth movements, developing a strong sense of self, career twists and turns, and how perspective and belief are key fuels to having a real connection with your area of expertise.

Being the welcomed hosts of the Americana Music Awards annually, his duo has released 6 albums, all of which are immensely dense and fraught with concepts that paint landscapes of Western philosophy with permanently poetic imagery of relatable angles of life we all come in touch with. We talk about the idea of being yourself in an unforgivable fashion, defining your expectations, as well as the concept of the personal branding.
I wanted to update y’all on how the tour has been! We just did our third weekend out. I’ve gotten several new guitars from Fender like the new Acoustasonic and Fender Ultra Telecaster. I also am messing around with the PRS Baritone SE model. Rockit Music Gear is making all of my straps. One even has LED! DANG! I’m using my old 1966 Fender Pro Reverb again. It is the familiar things that are the home for where our True Tone is discovered. We have a BRAND NEW LIVE CD for sale at the shows; high quality bootlegs called “Danny’s Picks Vol. 1,” just like Dick’s Picks, but in my own way. We’ve sold out 2 of the 8 shows we’ve played. We’ve hit the target of 100+ people on over half of them. We are seeing new faces, familiar friends, and overall community growth in each town I visit. The #COSMICCOUNTRY Club is real. Y’all are making the shows everything they can be. I’m recording each show and making them all available once the tour is over. For now, we have Psychedelic Fractal 1080P videos you can watch on YouTube! For those of y’all that like to get lost! Thank you ATL and Raleigh for selling us out. I love everyone and feel like a superhero each day to be able to add color into the lives of everyone who comes to listen. It’s my greatest honor. Check out the tour videos on my Instagram as well to catch up if you’re out of the loop!❇️🤠❇️

Although a household name to any Rock N’ Roll enthusiast, Garry Tallent is largely a behind the scenes entity, and he likes it that way. This interview is currently the only long form audio dialogue of Tallent’s initial foray into music and love for Rock N’ Roll. The longest running member of the E Street Band, since its start in 1971, Tallent has kept his love for music strong and youthful and is releasing music coming in May 2019 through Deville records, his self founded label. On this episode, with the most charming, humble, and definitive sentiment, he discusses the many ups and downs of his professional career, as well as the concept of how low expectations and the need for adventure can unlock the whole world to you if you’re willing to just believe and move forward. Tallent and Donato also discuss his experience of moving to Nashville in 1989, and how one can adapt to the ever-changing tides in the music industry. This interview is currently the only long form audio dialogue of Tallent’s initial foray into music and love for Rock N’ Roll.
