SLB In The Trailer Ep11

In this episode we interview the uber talented Matt Nakoa with his classical piano background and a lifetime of musical influences he blends jazzy vocal scats with pop guitar riffs and lush piano appreggios to make you swoon in your seat.  We discuss unplugging to connect back to life, booking an independent tour, songwriting and collaboration.  We even drift in time to his favorite time of Paris in the 1830s.  Matt Nakoa is not only talented, but laser focused on his musical mission and charges his songs with thought provoking lyrics.  Take a listen to how he is navigating the indie music scene and has pulled up his roots to help his music fly.  This episode includes great live clips of Matt’s performance at PutnamsUnplugged musical series in Brooklyn, NY.  Download the episode and take it with you on the go.

SLB In The Trailer Ep 1 Kim Nicholais photographer for “Putnam’s Unplugged”

This video/podcast is the first episode of “SLB In The Trailer” featuring commercial photographer Kim Nicholais, who will be photographing and documenting “Putnam’s Unplugged”

Putnam’s Unplugged is a weekly Sunday Night Music Series at Putnam’s Pub & Cooker, 419 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY hosted by Devlin Miles of Sweet Little Bloodhound, who will interview all the featured artist for our weekly podcast series of “SLB – In The Trailer”.

SLB – In The Trailer podcasts focus is to help other indie artists with tips from acts that are also out there making it happen and figuring out what makes them tick and how they approach their songwriting and where they draw their influences.

In this episode Kim and Devlin discuss what they are hoping to build at Putnam’s with a community of songwriters and bands that are all competing for some air time in NYC and how this little Brooklyn venue and neighborhood can bring the cool back to gigging in NYC and be an intimate place for artists to connect with their fans and for fans to feel a part of the show.  Feel free to leave comments on how to improve it, questions you want to ask, or better yet come to “Putnam’s Unplugged” and be a part of the excitement.

Introducing: (drum roll)
