CLIFFDIVER are back and you're gonna be in trouble! I'm so stoked to bring you today my second episode with one of my favorite bands, this time featuring the new voice, and addition to the band, Briana Wright. She, along with co-vocalist Joey Duffy, are giving us the rundown on their debut album, Exercise Your Demons. We of course hit on bringing a second vocalist to the band and how everything just clicked together with it...

Today I'm talking to Posture & The Grizzly for the first new episode of Fly On The Call in a hot minute! The band has always flown a bit under the radar, while gathering an extremely dedicated fan base, but they are clear: they're in it for the long haul. We're discussing taking your time to allow music to happen organically, the setbacks, triumphs, and, of course, the process of their self titled LP 3. The band is ...

Pictoria Vark's The Parts I Dread is one hell of a debut. Intentional, spacious, and intimate, this bass-centered music doesn't quite have a singular point of comparison - but that just makes it even better. Our conversation hits on this unique space her music fills, using additional instrumentation to further storytelling, balancing her solo work while being a hired bassist for touring bands, and a whole lot more.

Proper. have done it again - they dropped the best album of their career with The Great American Novel. Bringing in issues of identity, race, sex, and life in the 21st century this record is an in your face assessment of Erik Garlington's inner thoughts. And he's returning for the first time since the very first episode of Fly On The Call to break down the album, writing with Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years, being difficul...

For the first of two new episodes today we're hopping over to the UK to talk to Brutalligators. They're a punk band with an edge and a healthy dose of emo, in the vein of PUP, Spanish Love Songs, or Latterman. Their debut LP, This house is too big, this house is too small, is not your average break-up record - it's a cohesive journey through grief, mental health, inclusion, and identity. So give it a spin, enjoy the epi...

Absolution, out tomorrow, is an absolute heater and a level-up for Riverby in just about every way. From changes in sonic palette, to a more collaborative process, and working with Jim Wert in the studio Absolution is all about making the music the band wants and making it sound the best it can. We're talking all that as well as accidentally creating a concept album, the plans for the Riverby cinematic universe, and more.

Today is all about James Barrett's A Series Of... Mostly Nothing. Believe me when I say this album is HUGE. Like room-filling, all-surrounding, epic rock music. We're talking about the creation of this sound, the environment the album was recorded in, throwing yourself fully into your music, and a whole lot more. For the next two weeks there will be new episodes of Fly On The Call on both Wednesday and Thursday so I'll ...

Today's conversation is with Jaypitts - the first hip hop artist to come on the show. As a jack of all content trades, he's worked for years to not just create music he is passionate about, but also find an audience who connects with him on a deep level. Whether it's been music, TikTok, YouTube, or any other path, he has sought a way to use it to his benefit. Now he is in a position where he has reached a level of succe...

Raccoon Tour's The Dentonweaver is boisterous, theatrical, and a long time coming. With extensive lore, multiple re-records, and plenty more multimedia storybuilding the in the works, you can tell this is a special project. Today on Fly On The Call we're peeling back the layers on how this album became so time consuming and meticulously crafted, the growth made throughout its creation, and working with label I Surrender Rec...

Perennial returns - both musically and to the podcast! After a grueling wait their sophomore album, In The MIdnight Hour, has finally seen the light of day (or should I say the dark of night?). The episodes delves into how the album has changed since fall of 2019, building their own world, and making a record that isn't limited by any one genre.

saint judas is a newly collaborative solo project that falls somewhere on the folky, vibey side of emo. Their new EP, a terrible year, builds on the previous releases while showing a side of the band that could not have come to be without the DIY community. That, along with music as a form for therapy, is a main focus of this conversation, which I think you'll agree is a special one.

Fly On The Call is coming back at you with a conversation with Jail Socks! Coming Down was one of my most anticipated records of 2020 and while it wasn't 100% what I expected, it is still a great record. Today I'm talking to Jail Socks about their new sonic direction, the themes and major moments throughout the album, collaboration in the studio, and more.

We finally made it, it's time to celebrate! And how better to mark the one hundred episode and two year milestone than with a conversation with one of my favorite current artists? And a new theme song he composed to boot! That's right, today I'm talking once again to Jhariah, who in the last year has come incredibly far. The recently released, A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO FAKING YOUR DEATH, puts an exclamation point at the...

We are here, the final double digit episode of Fly On The Call! Before we hit episode 100 and the two year anniversary, I wanted to take a quick second to talk about the origins of the show, and my goals for it, reflect on the past two years, and talk a little about the future. I hope you don't mind me taking a brief moment to get corny on the main. Thank you for listening, for supporting this podcast as well as the bands I spe...

A Tiger Made of Lightning released one of my songs of 2020 with their debut single "exhausted". It encompassed what so many of us were feeling, with a strong, passionate sound, and without pulling any punches. At the same time there was an undercurrent of positivity that served as a reminder that not everything was shit. That positivity is brought even further in the follow-up single and the soon to be released debut EP, &#...

Arms Like Roses came together in an almost spur of the moment way and even the band themselves are almost surprised at how far they've come. Their debut EP, Get Some Sleep, melds classic emo and post-hardcore sounds with a plethora of other genres, eventually leading to a more concise vision for LP1, which is currently being finished up. The band just released an acoustic follow-up EP, Past Midnight, and have hit the ground run...

Telethon are back! I say this both referring to the fact that they were one of the first guests on Fly On The Call, way back in episode two, and that they just released their ripper of a new record, Swim Out Past The Breakers. For those unfamiliar with the band, they are a hard rockin', poppin', genre swappin' good ole time! The new album has plenty of features, flourishes that couldn't have been added with a standa...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
