When I was in LA on tour I was able to record two podcasts for Razorcake. The first focuses on music from my hometown, Syracuse.
Here's the introduction: The power pop land that time forgot. That’s Syracuse, New York. The alt City. Best known for people passing through on their way to bigger and better things—whether it’s the students making their way through Syracuse University or the minor baseball players hoping to make it to the majors. But Syracuse also has a history of great music. Like a lot of local music,& Syracuse’s best bands are often better appreciated by people living outside of the area. I loved growing up in Syracuse but I was unaware of area bands when I was living there. Ever since the early ‘90s, though, there’s been a steady stream of relatively easy to find compilations that have recirculated Syracuse’s best power pop and punk.
