#28 - Protests, Pictures and Patterns

In this episode of the Casey Stratton Podcast I talk extensively about the protests in Iran, followed by taking a question regarding photos and album artwork. I then talk a little about the psychological process of creating an album as you gear up to the release and the moments when you hate it and think it is the worst record yet. I then perform Window by request. Music recommendation is Christopher Dallman's Race the Light.

“Christopher Dallman’s debut CD is an entertainingly literary pilgrimage into the inner sanctum of the songwriter’s psyche. If good songwriting confronts listeners with truth about themselves, their emotions, and their world from a fresh point of view, then the songs on Race The Light represent songwriting at its best.”

#27 - Retrospectives, Remixes and Psychopaths

In this episode of the Casey Stratton Podcast I answer 2 questions from listeners, one about doing a retrospective collection. I then talk a little about the new remix collection I am working on before delving into the recording of The Crossing and the events that took place during that time. Included in the discussion is the movie-like drama that happened in early 2006. I then perform Coat Tails Dragging from Lily Sleeps and possibly the most unlikely cover I have ever done, Poker Face by Lady Gaga. Music recommendation is Brandon Carmody and Emptyland (featuring Me on vocals) - Lonely Dream Single.
