Osiris Announces New Podcasts With David Crosby, Chris Pandolfi & More
Osiris Media, a network of podcasts for which JamBase is a media partner, confirmed the upcoming launch of new podcasts, including one featuring multiple Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee David Crosby, another hosted by The Infamous Stringdusters‘ Chris Pandolfi and a series examining the legacy of Phish‘s Big Cypress festival 20 years later.
Journalist, author and JamBase contributor Steve Silberman chats with his good friend David Crosby for the four-episode series David Crosby: In Conversation With Steve Silberman. Set to launch in January, the podcast will also include rare music. “For 50 years, David Crosby has been a major force in music, whether providing shimmering harmonies for the Byrds, transforming pop by turning the Beatles on to Indian music, penning haunting melodies like ‘Guinevere’ for Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, or exploring the outer reaches of folk and jazz-influenced rock for his own Sky Trails, CPR, and Lighthouse bands,” Silberman said. “I’m thrilled to be able to dig in deeply with one of the seminal architects of modern music to hear his inimitable take on his own famously tumultuous history, play some previously unheard deep cuts, and look ahead to the future of where music and the music industry are going.”
Pandolfi will discuss music with artists from the bluegrass world and beyond on Inside The Musician’s Brain. The Infamous Stringdusters’ banjoist tapped Paul Hoffman of Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings and Sierra Hull to appear on the first episode, which premieres October 21.
Also coming from Osiris is After Midnight: Phish’s Big Cypress Festival. Journalist and author Jesse Jarnow hosts the four-episode look at the jam quartet’s Millennium Eve celebration at Big Cypress. Installments will include interviews with band and crew members, fans and others in honor of the 20th anniversary of the event which drew 85,000 people to Florida’s Everglades. The first episode premieres on November 12.
Additonally, Osiris will launch Jam Just Happened on December 6. The series will include audio and podcast components taken from jam sessions hosted each month by guitarist Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, WOLF!) in front of a live audience. Metzger will be joined by a different group of musicians for each installment of the first-of-its-kind live music/podcast hybrid.
Finally, Amar Sastry will host and narrate Let Creativity Flow, a three-episode miniseries set to premiere on October 28. Let Creativity Flow examines the role of technology in the evolution of music collaboration. Members of The Disco Biscuits and experts from such companies as Splice, Union Square Ventures and Downtown Music each contributed interviews for the series.
“Our listeners tell us that they want more podcasts and experiences that bring them closer to the artists and bands they love,” said Osiris Media CEO RJ Bee in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of all of these new shows, as they will bring our audiences new content while helping us to expand our focus to new artists, genres and important topics in music.”
