We are super excited to have Skerik as our guest on No Simple Road this week! Decade upon decade, Skerik remains the tireless steward for one of modern music’s most diverse, adventurous & passionate bodies of work. Skerik’s world is one where dialogue flows freely between wildly disparate strains of musical thought… where no borders exist between jazz & sludge metal, where elements of Congolese soukous dialect might find their way onto the million-selling records of an alternative rock band, where an avant-garde electronic translation of Ornette Coleman’s deepest & darkest fantasies (shared with a select few listeners in a small club) easily attains the same level of satisfaction & meaning as an exuberant explosion of jazz/funk catharsis (shared with hordes of sweaty festival crowds all over the world).
We get right down to business with Skerik talking about our current landscape, lessons learned through years on the road, dealing with fear and pressure as a society, being ‘the’ grunge saxophonist, how musicians are an asset to our culture, dealing with the financial aspects of a musical career, and a whole ton more! Make sure to check out Garage A Trois’ new album ‘Calm Down Cologne‘ everywhere music streams.
