Cory Wong
On this episode of Plus One Eric talks with guitarist and songwriter Cory Wong, whose intricate rhythmic style and eclectic solo projects have propelled him to prominence in the jazz and funk world.  Widely exalted for his ambitious and genre-fusing solo projects, Wong has also received critical recognition for his playing with Vulfpeck, who have erupted through the underground indie scene to plant themselves as a modern-day staple for funk music listeners.  In 2019, Vulfpeck became the first band without a label or manager to sell out Madison Square Garden, and throughout 2020 Wong has worked to continue to push new boundaries with his music.   Musically nurtured in Minneapolis jazz clubs by former members of Prince’s band, Wong has developed a uniquely percussive rhythm technique. In this episode, Kraz and Cory talk about the influences that lead to Wong’s stylistic development, dive in-depth on songwriting and recording, and deconstruct life as a musician.

Ani DiFranco
On this episode of Plus One Eric talks with guitarist and folk singer Ani DiFranco, who’s gained critical recognition in the neo-Americana folk world for unaffectedly blending her eclectic sound with socially and politically charged lyrics. She is also widely accredited for mothering the DIY movement in music. DiFranco started her own record label, Righteous Babe, when she was 19 and has since released 22 studio albums. In 2019 she put out a memoir, titled No Walls and the Recurring Dream, in which she details her life as a musician and activist. Last month Ani released a double single, “Do or Die” and “Contagious,” along with a music video for the former. The video promotes voting by dropping the viewer into an illustrious, quintessential display of the streets of New Orleans, to culminate with a social justice street-dance-party, ending in a silent tribute to justice by the Magnolia Bridge. The slick, Wurlitzer-decorated groove in combination with her versatile vocal dynamics provide a nifty instrumental section to compliment her message of unity and justice. Ani and Kraz talk through her recent projects, the journey to the digital age of music, and about her musical style choices and breakthroughs. Ani goes in depth on the influences that brought her to her current standing, and how she did it herself to become a matriarch for the DIY movement in music.

Theo Katzman
On this episode of Plus One Eric welcomes Theo Katzman, drummer, guitarist, and vocalist for the funk band Vulfpeck, who’ve used masterful marketing and creative music videos to amass an enormous underground following. In 2019 Vulfpeck became the first band without a manager or record label to sell out Madison Square Garden, and in 2020 they’re continuing to push the boundaries of independent music.  Earlier this year Theo released his third solo record entitled “Modern Johnny Sings: Songs in the Age of Vibe”, which features his smooth falsetto singing more personal lyrics than ever over his vintage funky singer-songwriter sound.   Theo’s dad played trumpet in legendary big bands with Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, and Duke Ellington, and Theo and Kraz discuss whether musical talent and style are hereditary. The two friends also get into the good and the bad of digital recording and modern music technologies, the internet genius of Jack Stratton, and how Led Zeppelin was responsible for both of their first musical breakthroughs.   This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Jeff Bhasker
On this episode of Plus One Eric talks to record producer Jeff Bhasker, who has won Grammys for his work with Kanye West, Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson, fun., and more. Eric and Jeff have been friends since college, when he was a jazz-obsessed keyboardist studying all forms of music but without a concept for what he’d make on his own.   Jeff describes how discovering Basquiat and other contemporary visual artists helped shape his own concept as an artist, and why “what’s the concept?” remains an essential question he asks musicians he works with.  Jeff also shares about working with Bruno Mars when Bruno was an 18 year old kid new to LA, and explains how he went from playing keyboard with Kanye West to producing his Grammy-winning records.

Victoria Canal
In this episode of Plus One Eric talks to his good friend and one of his favorite young artists, singer-songwriter Victoria Canal. Having grown up across three continents and moving every year, from an early age Victoria used songwriting to channel her fears of not fitting in. It’s Canal’s complete comfort in her own skin that lets her trust audiences and be truly vulnerable with them, frequently bringing fans to tears.  Her newest EP, Victoria, released on August 28th, represents a giant step forward for Canal as a writer and producer, and the resulting tracks convey a maturity far beyond her 22 years. Hear Victoria tell Eric why a seaside cliff near Barcelona was the only place to record such a profoundly personal album, and why it feels right to release it during such a difficult year.   This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
