Hear Me Pod - Angela Chan 

August 05, 2021 

by Tyler Williams 

Well my friends, it's been a while. 

How are you? What's new? What's getting old? 

Today I published my 5th episode of "Hear Me Pod" featuring an interview with my associate conductor and keyboard 1 player at Le Rêve, Angela Chan. She and I have been close friends for a long time. I think this episode turned out great! I really appreciate my friends and family who have encouraged me to keep going on this little endeavor. Thank you. 

Here's the direct link to the episode!

Hear Me Pod - Andrew Ragone

Well..it's been a minute! 

Hello friends! I've been very "musically" busy lately. I had 2 broadway style gigs here in Las Vegas last week, which involved a lot of prep, rehearsal, and technical attention. I also delivered my first bass lecture/presentation at the 2021 International Society of Bassists Convention. It was supposed to be in person in Lincoln, Nebraska, BUT...COVID.

I was grateful for the recent gigs, to say the least. Freelancing is my new reality, and I'm…

Hear Me Pod, a new podcast! 

Happy Saturday to you!

Better late than… 

Hello! 

I just wanted to officially announce that my new podcast has officially dropped! 

Hear Me Pod is now available! 

Please check out Episode 1 with my good friend, Marcus Weiss.

Thank you for supporting me with your messages, texts and phone calls. I had a few hiccups with the setup and figuring out the hosting/distribution. It’s all a process and I truly think it has been a real personal test during this dumpster fire of a year!

Thanks again for your support…

Day 100!

Well...I did it, 100 blog days in a row. The emailed newsletter is weekly. Sorry for the confusion.

To be honest, I had a few days run amok these past couple of weeks. However, I think the process went pretty well!

Thanks to all who have looked at this blog or newsletter as this has been a great exercise thus far.

Next week, I'm shifting my distribution process . The blog/newsletter will become a weekly check in and it can arrive in your mailbox, RSS feed (which I'm…

Day 99!

Day 99! 

Hey guys, a quick check in here. Tomorrow is day 100 for my blog.  

March is the month we shut down in Vegas (and all around the world), so I've been a bit reflective, optimisitc and yet somber to say the least. It is a rollercoaster, but, I'm so grateful for the good in my life. 

I'm working on a newsletter and a plan to move forward with this thing! Please stay tuned and thanks for reading.

Vinnie Colaiuta On Chick Corea  

Vinnie Colaiuta recently gave a beautiful tribute to the great Chick Corea on his podcast, "Breakfast With Vinnie." I somehow found it on YouTube during my incessant watching of Chick "playing live" videos ever since his unexpected passing February 9, 2021.

I listened to Vinnie's podcast episode twice yesterday. After the second listen and reflection, I had a bit of a breakdown and immediately realized I wouldn't be where I am at without…

My Sister, Anna 

So yesterday I received an email from the Calapooia Art Gallery, which is located in Albany, Oregon. 

My sister is one of the featured artists this month, yay! (March 2021) 

Please check out her work here. She is amazing and quite prolific. I'm a proud big brother, and have a few of her pieces in our house! I'm hoping she gets a website presence soon...(hint, hint Anna) 

Anyway, I'm a little behind on a few blogs and podcast work, so please bare with me…

Making The Sausage 

So, on Friday (2/26/2021) I finished the final 2 interviews with my band! Things went really well during the conversations this week. The content, the laughs, and the reconnecting with my wonderful Le Rêve band has been inspiring to me to keep going. 

However, I had a weird thing happen with my Zoom recordings! Apparently, and I'm not even kidding, there are 3 places to change settings (and preferences) with your meetings. There are the regular…

5 Out 6 Interviews! 

February 26, 2021

by Tyler Williams

Hi guys!

Just a quick check in here. I've completed 5 out of 6 Le Rêve band interviews and I cannot wait to edit them and put them out there!

After talking to Angela Chan, I once again realized all the many connections we all have in our industry and how cool it is to be reaching out to them in this way.

I'm looking forward to releasing these interviews in the near future.

Happy Friday, and may you have a peaceful weekend.
