Interviews with The Spongetones and Shake Some Action!

I was amazingly lucky to get these interviews with the following power pop artists. The Spongetones Jamie Hoover was very friendly and approachable and I interviewed him hot on the heels of his new album “Too Clever By Half” – to say Mr. Hoover is respected here is an understatement as you can see above, his peers all pay tribute to the band.

Not to be ignored is the irrepressible band Shake Some Action who also talked a bit about the new album, the live tour and the band’s future. I chatted with leader James Hall ( who is working on a new Jeunes album) and bandmate, Gary Miller.

Paul Steel interviewed and a Jaimie Vernon article

Here is the video single “Your Loss” from the upcoming album “Moon Rock” – – I got a chance to interview Paul Steel for the Powerpopaholic here. It wasn’t easy as Paul has already had done a ton of interviews in his native England, and they got all the cool questions, but I hoped to shed a bit more light on his album “April & I” now available on Itunes.

I also got the opportunity to re-post an excellent “article” of advice from Bullseye Records exec. Jaimie Vernon. If you are an indie artist looking for some kind of success in this business, Jaimie offers up some great tips.

New Interviews: The Swedes and Dave Dill

Recently, I got to chat with John Gray, lead vocalist for The Swedes (shown above) and also the sunshine pop maestro, Dave Dill – both have new albums out, so I asked a few basic questions. Check out the Artist Interviews section on the right, or these direct links here:

Mitch Easter interviewed on Powerpopaholic

It wasn’t easy to come up with questions to ask power pop legend Mitch Easter, as he has given lots of interviews recently. I wanted to avoid any REM questions, since it’s been a long time since he’s worked with them, and concentrate on the new album, Dynamico.
