Joel Daniel Shares His Music and Story. Recorded Sep 13th, 2019

Joel Daniel - listen in now 

Joel is a longtime resident of Davis, California.  In his twenties he started a band with his closest friends called Shayna and the Bulldog ("SatB") (https://shayna.bandcamp.com/), an Americana / Indie Rock band. They made two albums together and played hundreds of shows throughout the Western and Southwestern US.  

Somewhere along the way, Joel started a children's band called, The Hoots, (www.hootquarters.com).   For this project, he's written four albums of material, won countless awards - including: a Parent's Choice Award - sold many records, and played hundreds of shows.  Joel started producing an educational children's video series called, Hoot Quarters, starring an owl, who thinks he knows everything, but doesn't, and the The Hoots, who help said owl, Oliver, along the right path. 

Recently Joel started writing some new "grown up" music.  In the summer of 2019 he started to play these songs out in public.  They are the first songs he would consider to be solo songs - outside of The Hoots -that he has written and performed.  He hopes to record them in the coming months and play them out in a more band oriented context in the near future.

Bad Mother Nature interview, Recorded Jun 21st, 2019

Keep an eye out for these guys, even better, treat your ears to BAD MOTHER NATURE. Listen in as we talk with all four of the band members

Bad Mother Nature, an original band formed in 2016, consists of guitarist/bassist duo Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred, pianist Ryan Allred, and drummer Jon McCann. Inspired by the classic rock titans of the 1960s and '70s, they balance driving guitar-riff work with the nuanced, progressive piano that allows their music to range from soft to rocking - often within the same song.

Their debut EP “Strange Weather,” featuring Colin Curtin on drums, presented a range of styles from the upbeat blues-rock Honey Rider, to the instrumental guitar piece Persephone, to the anthemic ballad I’ll Make You a Thief. UK rock magazine Fireworks profiled the album and the band.

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.

 

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
