Prior to this series of recorded podcasts, I did a show with blues musician Wes Lee, live at The Shed BBQ and Blues Joint in Ocean Springs, followed by a side by side performance in which Wes and I played a mix of originals and classic blues tunes. That was back on November 13th. You can see the article about the show here or listen to the youtube podcast here.
Two hours into the podcast, right around the time we started talking about pizza, I secretly ordered two larges from Dominoes on my laptop while my guests conversed. So long was our discussion that we broke a cardinal rule for the podcast and ate as we talked. Don’t worry, we were mindful of smacking! We had also mentioned what’s called light painting photography during our talk and, once the recording was done, took for the outdoors to attempt some of these shots. We called it quiets just after midnight.
Just this past weekend, we filmed our third episode at Jack’s By The Tracks in Pascagoula. Here, we enjoyed the showcased talent of three talented young women who are the stars of a newly created label in the area, Baldwin County Public Records, manned by Jeffery Zimmer, along with partner, record producer and musician Anthony Crawford. Johnny got the chance to speak with Zimmer and hear a little bit about what’s been going on with Baldwin County Public Records. He also spoke with Lauren Kay, one of the labels artists present that night. I myself took Brittany Bell and Laci Wright off to the side on separate occasions to ask them about their experiences recording at Admiral Bean Studios with Crawford and what their plans for the future were. Present at the show was Stephen Anderson, Robby Amonett, and JT Nicholson on the camera.
