Several band members decide to fill in their tight schedules with the audio journey to express themselves with their peers. Below we’ve gathered musician talk show podcasts for you in our 7 podcasts from band members.
The Sound of Change
The Sound of Change is the podcast of Senses Fail vocalist Buddy Nelson. Buddy is the only remaining founding member as has been fronting the band since formation in 2001. In the scene so long, it’s only natural for him to host his own podcast it. Buddy has always spoken his mind but in recent years the artist is extremely outspoken. Finally with The Sound of Change Buddy has a chance to exchange opinions with other interesting people within the scene.
Lead Singer Syndrome
Lead Singer Syndrome is a podcast from Silverstein frontman Shane Told where various other vocalists share their experiences together. Every episode the frontman exchanges stories and opinions of the scene. Lead Singer Syndrome also has special episodes called New Noise containing information on upcoming releases.
Ear Candy is a podcast from The Maine frontman and personality John O’Callaghan. The Maine is a very busy band with an extremely dedicated fan base so a podcast only makes sense for them. Ear Candy is more of a show than a podcast with John O’Callaghan speaking about his personal feelings about past events from his life. Most of the podcasts on our podcasts from band members worth checking out feature guests. However, even a podcast such as Ear Candy with just a host and no guest can provide an incredible amount of insight as the host John O’Callaghan is entirely in charge of what topics get discussed.
