LSQC172 - Leslie Hunt

2nite on LSQC172 Leslie Hunt, Fan-Favorite, American Idol Semi-Finalist Makes Comeback with “Ascend”, her brand new and exquisite album.

Leslie is amazing. Two kids, multiple instruments and bands, and a semi-finalist on “American Idol”…. Her focus and drive to stay on her passion is inspiring. We got to chat about her creative process for “Ascend”, as well as “Descend”. The former has a release date of 6/25, 9/3 for “Descend”. Much of the latter was inspired by so much from 2020. She lets the music take her where it wants her to go. So well put. Not forcing anything. Just a cool organic process of not so much bringing, but letting music come to life.

Bio: A multi-talented and multi-instrumentalist since the age of four, Leslie has captivated millions of people with her songs. With three amazing solo albums under her belt and four studio albums and several live albums as a vocalist and songwriter for the progressive rock band District 97, Leslie’s successes from both her solo career as well as District 97’s have led to many tours in North America and Europe. As a result, Leslie has gained a multitude of fans worldwide. As a solo artist, Hunt holds regular performances, enchanting rooms large and small with nothing but a piano and her voice. She also has a full backing band for shows that are less intimate, yet still wholly riveting.

Throughout her career, Leslie has worked with numerous established talents, including drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, and Sting), bassist Vail Johnson (Stevie Nicks and Herbie Hancock), and Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s cellist Katinka Klein. Ultimately, what sets her apart is that she straddles two extremes: a witty, bouncy pop artist in brightly colored dresses who is pitted against her darker self, a sensual and piano-crouched exhibitionist. Whether it is a cheerful, hook-heavy pop tune about love or a dark and insightful ballad of self-discovery, Hunt’s music is a window into her soul for any listener willing to look.

Thanks Leslie.

During the lockdown, Jeff did just what you’d think a multi-talented musicians would do….. he recorded and album. Actually, he’s almost done with it. The masters are down, artwork is finished…… we are weeks away from its release. We premiered the video for “Wild Child” right here. I also tracked down a “character piece” Jeff recorded several years ago. we got to watch him snort non-dairy creamer.

Jeff and I also chatted about working the ships. A quick drunk story in Roatan, numerous fun nights at “Howl at the Moon”, smoking cigars, and had a surprise visit for fellow “Million Dollar Quartet” cast member Nick Voss.

LSQC166 - John Knight

John Knight is set for LSQC166. Comedian, friend, Pittsburghs finest.

Great catching up with John. Funny dude, I’ve known for years. Like most comics, he’s slowly back out there. A few shows here and there…. also like other comics, he utilized his down time. He had already been teaching comedy for years, he took his talents to the intarweb. Tons of videos, clips, “Rants”, and dozens of articles/blogs. John stayed funny and creative. Check it all out on his website

Also, did I mention, HE WRITE A BOOK!! “I’m still Aggravated But at Least I Didn’t Kill Anybody” can be found through his site.

Thanks John and Thank You for watching!!

You’re Welcome ______________________________________________________________________________

The idea behind my online productions is simple… The shows are free. If you watch it and like it, great. If you watch it and want to pay…? Even greater. It’s called the “Pay IFUCAN plan” – Want to buy a ticket? Go to‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč and choose Paypal, Credit card, Venmo, Cash APP… I think there’s even a goat option. (Not Really, but you can pay as little as $1)

LSQC165 - Dan Thiel

2nite, we catch up with actors. Actor Dan Thiel from the film “Deep Blue Sea” and my acting class is on LSQC165. We discuss his current film “Tug of war” in which he stars AND Produces. I also give him tips on how to be more handsome.

Great chat with Dan. I met Dan in acting class. Maybe the best acting class ever. We talked about that, tons of acting stuff from Dan’ s career, acting and producing in the post covid world, having daughters.,… and we did it all without being cancelled… I think.

We discussed “Tug of War”, a feature Dan stars in and produces. The film is currently seeking funding/financing. I’m always a fan of artists’ taking control of a project and trying to get it done on their terms. No studio, No network, no BS…. This is a big one too. Special effects. space stuff… Dan plays a down and out, drunk, tug boat pilot in space. The best gig ever. It’s pretty amazing. Catch the teaser in the show. OR……

Check out everything about “Tug of War” here. read the info. get involved if you can.

Thanks Dan. ‘and Thank you for watching……
