PODCAST: The Struggle Is Real (S1E15)

Musicians Ryan Gurnett, Dennis Reed Jr and Will Webb talk about the good, the bad and the funny of the Western New York music scene. We interview Tom Burtless of Buffalo synth-pop group Humble Braggers about opening for Metric, the 80s Music Revival, getting music on TV shows, and the group’s writing and recording process. We’ll play three songs from their 2017 album, I Know Better, I’m No Better. Also, recent and upcoming show reviews, and Ryan Goes to War with Rochester’s Montage Theatre.
