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.
