This is the fifth of seven shows recorded on September 15th at the Kammy's Kause benefit and features Northwest Indiana singer/songwriter/musician Josh Holmes. Along with being the infamous triple threat (possibly quadruple -- I don't know for sure if he dances or not), Josh has some innovative, interesting ideas concerning grass-roots marketing tactics. These are so innovative, in fact, that he's actually gotten radio exposure in serveral out of state markets across the country -- including charting in Hawaii and being featured on national television.
I must admit, one-on-one interviews like this always make me nervous. With a full band, I can generally sit back, say very little, and let the guests play off of each other. Single guests, on the other hand, require a great deal of research, preparation, and planning to determine what topics and questions are going to be most interesting to the audience as well as the interviewee. Fortunately, Josh is a very easy interview who displays a great deal of natural wit, intelligence, and charm as he talks us through four excellent tracks from his last two releases.
