#662 : Kaya Stewart / Singer Songwriter
Kaya Stewart has been writing and recording songs since she was 13 years old. Sure Dave Stewart of Eurythmics is her Dad but that doesn't guarantee talent or success and she knows that.
After a song she wrote and recorded blew up on Soundcloud, records labels started knocking on her door.
Soon she found herself on Warner Brothers Records and out on the Vans Warped Tour but it wasn't all dreamy.
Kaya decided to start over and do things her way. During the Pandemic she was diagnosed with OCD which was the catalyst to write the collection of songs that make up her new album IF THINGS GO SOUTH which was co-written and co-produced by Dave Stewart.
The record comes out Sept 30th and will be available on all streaming platforms.
Kaya has an incredible voice and is a great songwriter and I really dig some of the songs on her new album.
I think you guys are really gonna dig this episode.

King has been an outlier from the very beginning. A fourth generation musician from Greenville, SC, who learned guitar at age 3 from his blues rock musician father Marvin King. He navigated troublesome school years to quickly become known as one of the most promising young artists of our time. He followed breakout success with The Marcus King Band, with his Auerbach produced 2020 solo album debut, El Dorado. It garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Americana Album” and critical praise from The New York Times to NPR’s Weekend Edition. With unparalleled performance prowess and a dynamic live show, King has sold out historic venues from The Beacon to The Filmore. He has opened for Chris Stapleton, Greta Van Fleet and Nathaniel Rateliff and graced the bills of Stagecoach, Fuji Rock, Rock Werchter and more. He also recently launched his own custom Gibson guitar and signature Orange guitar amplifier, the MK Ultra, which sold out before it even hit the stores.

This episode is brought to you by Rolling Stone 500
In the mid-2000s, few people were more famous than Britney Spears. But as she began to stumble in her personal life, the price of the public’s fascination was more than just a few nasty late-night jokes. Paparazzi swarmed Spears’ home and her family, turning the singer into a tabloid punching bag. But when you’re a platinum-selling pop princess, the show goes on even when you desperately need an intermission. In the midst of madness, Spears began recording an album that would become her defining statement, 2007’s Blackout. Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums revisits the album at a time when Spears’ music — and the raw treatment she received from the public and the press — is being revisited and rethought in a big way. Collaborators and friends, from the A&R rep who was one of Spears’ closest allies to the producers who crafted visceral hits like “Piece of Me,” tell the story of how Spears’ made classic songs in the eye of a hurricane. The result was an album that stood as a middle finger to Spears’ critics and established a dark, danceable sound that influenced pop for years to come. Be sure to tune in on Amazon Music.

Today on episode 617 of Let There Be Talk my guest is Tom Vitale, author of "In The Weeds - Around The World and Behind The Scenes with Anthony Bourdain.
In the nearly two years since Anthony Bourdain's death, no one else has come close to filling the void he left. His passion for and genuine curiosity about the people and cultures he visited made the world feel smaller and more connected. Despite his affable, confident, and trademark snarky TV persona, the real Tony was intensely private, deeply conflicted about his fame, and an enigma even to those close to him. Tony’s devoted crew knew him best, and no one else had a front-row seat for as long as his director and producer, Tom Vitale.

Today I sit down in the box office of one of the greatest Rock n Roll venues in America the Cow Palace located in San Francisco.
I recently was up in the Bay Area doing some Stand Up Comedy and Andrew Shreve reached out and said he works at the Cow Palace and asked if I would like to come take a tour and maybe do a podcast in the venue. I screamed YES YES YES and headed over to the venue for a full on tour of the very building that gave me all my Rock n Roll memories.
I know the building inside and out but to be able to sit down and hear the History from Andrew and Jeff Ewald was next level.
Everyone has that classic memory of some great concert they went to but take a second and think about the venue. So many of these classic venues are gone now unfortunately. The stories the Cow Palace walls could tell would be insane.
Jeff and I sat down in the legendary Box Office of the Cow Palace surrounded by a who's who of Autographs on the walls and dove into the history of this incredible Venue.

#583:Sananda Maitreya/Musician, Artist and Songwriter
In 1995 I stepped into the Fillmore in San Francisco and witnessed one of the greatest live performances I've ever seen by a man named Terence Trent D'Arby. Shortly after that concert that man disappeared from the music business or so I thought. Around 8 years ago I did a Google search and found out that he had changed his name and had been making music for years under his new name Sananda Maitreya.
I can't even tell you how excited I was to find all this music I hadn't heard.
Sananda released a new double album last Friday, March 19th 2021 called Pandora's Playhouse and it great.
Sanand was an absolute dream guest and I know you guys are going to dig this Honest conversation on all things Art.
