INDIANAPOLIS — (Tues, January 25, 2022) --- Music Buzzz Podcast launched in 2021 and features over 30 episodes of candid discussions with those who are and have been a fly on the wall in the music business including industry veterans representing the segments of Musician, Design and Live. The podcast is hosted by Dane Clark (drummer in the John Mellencamp band since 1996), Hugh Syme (world-renowned graphic artist who has created albums covers for Rush, Dream Theater, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Joe Bonamassa, Megadeth, Kiss, Whitesnake and more) and Andy Wilson (an entertainment executive and President of ELEVATE).
“This podcast has been an absolute thrill for me. Having the opportunity to talk to some of my heroes while also being exposed to new music and make new connections has been great,” said Clark.
The Season 2 launch of Music Buzzz Podcast features a special one year anniversary episode with all three hosts interviewing each other about their collective experiences, challenges and projects from 2021 and what lies ahead in the new year. Clark has spent his year recording for the upcoming new John Mellencamp album, playing live shows and recording with The Dane Clark Band and getting ThunderSound Studio rolling again. Syme has been busy creating artwork for corporate clients and projects for Dream Theater, Joe Bonamassa, Gustavo Carmo, Rivers & Rust (featuring Kyle Cook of Matchbox Twenty), Graham Nash and more; and also hosted a gallery at AO5 in Austin, and released the expanded ART OF RUSH book. Wilson launched a brand new event and entertainment venture (ELEVATE Entertainment & Events) and has worked on more than 350 events in 2021 including major tours, sporting events and lifestyle projects.
“As the pandemic has continued we have all had to adapt and find new ways to create and connect. This podcast has allowed me to reconnect with some old friends and clients while also having the opportunity to truly be a fly on the wall and listen to so many unbelievable stories,” said Syme.
Season 2 will include another wide range of artists and stories including Carleen Carter, Fee Waybill (The Tubes), Todd Snider, Kristian Bush, Frank Hannon (Tesla), Elliott Murphy, Simon Kirke (Bad Company & Free), Rodney Crowell, Mark Rivera (Billy Joel), Cory Lerios and David Jenkins (Pablo Cruise), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), Marshall Crenshaw, and all five members of The Immediate Family including Danny Kortchmar, Waddy Wachtel, Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel and Steve Postell.
