Sounds and vision is hosted by Andrew Loog Oldham, best known for managing the Rolling Stones. The series sees him chatting with people he has met throughout his life, and the new season kicks off on October 5.
Faded emo, created by Tom Mullen, delves into the history and impact of the musical genre through interviews with musicians like Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday, who is the guest of his 200e episode.
Ultimately, Women in Hip Hop with Jazzie Belle is hosted and created by Jazzie Belle of Detroit, formerly of Eminem’s Shade45 SiriusXM. The podcast tells the story of women in the genre through interviews with pioneers and the latest additions to the art form. New episodes return on October 6.
âThere is a direct parallel between the growth of any medium and the need for curation,â said Brady Sadler, co-founder of Double Elvis. âStarting Double Elvis with our own originals and curated co-productions has allowed us to really get to know our audience, helping us ensure that each new podcast will be relevant to our current fan base, while also allowing us to expand into new genres. . It’s also a win-win for listeners, who now have a one-stop shop for the most dynamic, music-focused stories across many genres.
“The foundation of Double Elvis is made up of independent creators, and I know firsthand how difficult it is to go out on your own as an independent musician,” added Jake Brennan, Co-Founder of Double Elvis and Creator of Disgracelan. ‘. âWe’ve had great success on both sides working with creators like Asante Blackk, Daniella Perkins and Bobby Cius on Here Comes The Break, Chelsea Ursin on Dear Young Rocker and Nikki Lynette on About a Girl. Our goal with this new list of series is to provide support to other independent artists and exposure to like-minded listeners, while ensuring that creators always have full control over their projects. “
