Osiris Media, a leading network of music podcasts, has announced the production of five original shows. These new shows help to bring more diverse music content to more listeners.
Inside the Musician’s Brain. Banjo virtuoso Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters will dive in deeply with artists from bluegrass and beyond. The first episodes feature Paul Hoffman of Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings and Sierra Hull. Premieres October 29.
After Midnight: Phish’s Big Cypress Festival. In December 1999, Phish drew 80,000 people to the Big Cypress Indian Reservation in Florida’s Everglades, making their music festival the largest Millennium Eve celebration on earth. As we look back at the festival, 20 years later, we’ll pay tribute to this unique festival—and examine the legacy for Phish and the music world. Hosted and narrated by renowned music journalist Jesse Jarnow, this five-episode series will draw on interviews with members of Phish and its crew, fan memories, and conversations with other people across the music industry. Premieres November 14.
Let Creativity Flow. This three-episode miniseries will tell the story of how technology is affecting the evolution of music collaboration. The series features interviews with experts from Splice, Union Square Ventures, Downtown Music, and members of The Disco Biscuits. It will be hosted and narrated by Amar Sastry. Premieres November 18.
Jam Just Happened. A first of its kind show, Jam Just Happened will bring together the intimacy of a podcast and the uniqueness of a live music experience. Every month, guitarist Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, WOLF!, Rana) will host a jam session with a different group of high-profile musicians. Recorded in front of a live audience, the show will include audio and podcast components after each event. Premieres December 6.
Freak Flag Flying: In Conversation with David Crosby. NeuroTribes author Steve Silberman will be hosting a four-episode series with his good friend David Crosby. As Steve says: “For 50 years, David Crosby has been a major force in music, whether providing shimmering harmonies for the Byrds, transforming pop by turning the Beatles on to Indian music, penning haunting melodies like ‘Guinevere’ for Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, or exploring the outer reaches of folk and jazz-influenced rock for his own Sky Trails, CPR, and Lighthouse bands. I’m thrilled to be able to dig in deeply with one of the seminal architects of modern music to hear his inimitable take on his own famously tumultuous history, play some previously unheard deep cuts, and look ahead to the future of where music and the music industry are going.” Premieres January 6.
“Our listeners tell us that they want more podcasts and experiences that bring them closer to the artists and bands they love,” said Osiris Media CEO RJ Bee. “We are incredibly proud of all of these new shows, as they will bring our audiences new content while helping us to expand our focus to new artists, genres and important topics in music.”
