When Two Roads Lead To One Path With The Young Fables

Whether you believe in karma or a higher power or just good old juju coming from the universe, sometimes two roads can lead to one path in our lives. That’s exactly what happened with my husband Jeff and myself a few years back and that’s what happened with this week’s musical guests, the Young Fables.

Laurel Wright and Wes Lunsford (the Young Fables) are a dynamic duo of singer-songwriters that steadily has Music City talking about their unique and honest approach to songwriting, along with their infectious live shows. Heavyweights like Sheryl Crow and Keith Urban have even become “Fable Fanatics.” Oh, and they happen to be a duo that fell in love in real-life as well.

On This Podcast Episode:

The Young Fables joined us from Nashville to talk about finding love and the music they were meant to play, how their Kickstarter fundraiser went over the top live on the radio and their new album, Old Songs that’s due May 4.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Chase Your Dream No Matter What with Jukebox the Ghost + Ask Shannah – Am I Saving Correctly

Whatever career path or life choices we take with our lives may often time require a backup plan if something does not work out how we envision. But, what if we have one vision for our lives and no matter how long it takes or how much hard work comes with that dream this is exactly the direction we are headed and nothing will stop us or get in our way?

Frontman of the power pop/rock band Jukebox the Ghost Ben Thornewill, always knew music was part of his life plan, from growing up playing classical music to getting a college degree in music and now ten years on as a successful chart-topping band.

On This Podcast Episode:

Jukebox the Ghost is bringing power pop/rock back with their blend of monster piano jams, hard rock guitar licks, and epically powerful vocals. Now, the Brooklyn-based trio of Thornewill on vocals/piano, Tommy Siegel guitar/vocals, and Jesse Kristin on drums/vocals have a sonically layered new album out right now, “Off to the Races.”

We caught up with Thornewill in Brooklyn as Jukebox the Ghost was preparing to hit the road on their headlining tour in support of the new album. We talked with the lead singer about his path from classical music to rock music, their alter-ego of being a Queen cover band and how Brooklyn has become such a hotbed for creatives these days.

History Of The Country Music Hall of Fame and Ask Shannah – Student Loan Consolidation

Recently we went to see one of our favorite Irish singers, Glen Hansard and he was telling about his first visit to Los Angeles. He had a quote about how to really get to know a place or culture, “If you want to learn about a place, read the history books. If you want to get to know a place, listen to their songs.” This is so true and we love exploring so many genres of music.

These days it seems like we’re all reading more about history, watching documentaries about historic events and of course listening to podcasts about the history of so many things, people and places.

On This Podcast Episode:

This episode’s Ask Shannah question is from Allison who is curious about student loan consolidation and whether it makes sense or not. Thanks Allison for the question!

This week we wanted to explore the history of country music because just like your own money journey through life, history tells us a lot about where we’ve been and where we’re going. For that reason, we also want to celebrate some of today’s hottest country artists and the incredible success they’ve had through their careers.

Take a tour with us through one of Nashville’s most popular attractions, the Country Music Hall of Fame. We talked with museum editor Michael Gray about their newly opened exhibit, American Current, which features such greats as Taylor Swift, Jason Aldeen, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Jason Isbell, a new judge on American Idol Luke Bryan and so many more.

Millennial Music Chat, Beyond the Sun and Ask Shannah – Which Car Should We Pay Off

Today’s country music has been transformed, as the influence of hip-hop, rap, pop, and even EDM have become the new mainstream of popular music around the globe. Now, a young Canadian band of actual brothers, Beyond the Sun are breaking down more barriers with their brand of “shuffle-mode” style of country music and a new generation of fans are taking notice of one of Nashville’s most innovative bands.

Beyond the Sun, Phil on guitar, Colin on vocals, and Dalton on drums hail from Ontario, Canada where they ingested a wide variety of music from Coldplay to Florida Georgia Line to My Chemical Romance to Ed Sheeran and Bruce Springsteen. Bands like Beyond the Sun are thinking outside the big box of country music and are carving their own path.

On This Podcast Episode:

We caught up with Beyond the Sun in Nashville as they chatted about their new song, “Dance Floor” and the music they’ll be releasing later in 2018, how their version of country music today fits with today’s fans and how they declare Bruce Springsteen’s songwriting as the GOAT (greatest of all time). You’ll hear some great tunes and have a chance to check out a new band.

Music Chat With Mat Kearney and Ask Shannah – I Don’t Have a 401K at Work

We all have talents – some may be already tapped talents and some may yet to be extracted from inside of us. What if you never discover the talents you have inside of you and never chase your dreams? Singer/songwriter Mat Kearney did not discover his amazing musical talents until he was midway through college at Chico State in California.

Now, this Oregon-born singer-songwriter continues to break down musical barriers with his soulful genre-bending blend of hip-hop infused style of music with his new self-titled EP and upcoming album.

On This Podcast Episode:

Mat Kearney stopped by the Millennial Money podcast as was in the middle recent rehearsals in Nashville for his upcoming national tour to chat with Jeff. We loved hanging out with one of the all-around great guys in music today, as we chatted about his upcoming CRAZYTALK album and current tour, stories of opening for John Mayer early in his career and how fatherhood has changed his songwriting.

Also, today’s Ask Shannah question is all about not having access to a 401(k) at work from Angela.

Millennial Music Chat – Tyler Williams

Contemporary country singer Tyler Williams might be one of the busiest dudes around – singer/songwriter, NASCAR driver, actor, author – yep, he has his irons in a lot of fires these days. For a guy, so busy and so driven, you’d never guess that at a young age he caught a bad case of stage fright almost thwarted his entire multi-career path.

On This Podcast Episode:

Even with so much on this young singer’s plate, he still found time to write and record a new album which drops January 26. We caught up with Tyler Williams at his home in Atlanta as he talked about his bout with stage fright, how karaoke changed his singing career and how proud he is of his new album Good for Me.

Millennial Music Chat – Skating Polly

Skating Polly is a family affair alternative/punk band with Oklahoma roots, with sister Peyton Bighorse on guitar, brother Kurtis Mayo on drums and sister Kelly Mayo playing the guitar/bass hybrid instrument called a basitar. An instrument that is not widely used, which shows how interesting and cool this band can really be.

Even though Skating Polly is a young band, their musical roots and rock-n-roll historic knowledge run deep, with influences from the Beatles to L.A. punk band X to the feme fatal groundbreaking artist Liz Phair to the wall of sound that was Nirvana.

On This Podcast Episode:

Time to check out a new band. We had a lot of fun chatting with this young millennial band about how the sisters formed the band after a Halloween party at ages 9 and 14, how they carve out new songs on their ukulele and what music is on their Spotify playlists these days.

Millennial Music Chat – Keith Harkin

Irish singer-songwriter Keith Harkin is making music on his own terms and connecting with his devoted fanbase more than he could have ever imagined. Proof that sometimes you have to believe in your own dream first…before someone else does.

For ten years Harkin was one of the original members the Irish super group Celtic Thunder, followed by a debut self-titled solo album that was produced by Grammy-award winning producer David Foster. Still, Harkin was searching for the music and voice he could truly call his own.

In 2015, Harkin decided to self-fund his next album On Mercy Street and literally only at the very last second signed a record deal with Blue Élan Records for its release. Shortly following up with a Christmas album of originals and standards in 2016. Both records again hit number one on Billboard’s World Music chart.

On This Podcast Episode:

We’re so excited to chat with Keith about his musical journey and how he’s managed to follow his dreams – even if he had to dip into his own bank account. Keith is back with a new live album In the Round, along with a concert film shot near his home in Venice Beach, California. He then hits the road this holiday season at the end of November for a string of intimate performances with exclusive coast to coast house concert tour. How fun!

Talking Score the Documentary with Filmmaker Nate Gold

It amazing how movies can become part of our pop culture and even define some of our happier movements in our lives. A movie’s musical score can also send us to that memory of seeing a special film for the first time.

We can all visualize that moment in cinematic history when we first saw E.T. fly away or Captain Jack Sparrow sail the Black Pearl or the opening titles to Star Wars. Each of these film’s score literally set the tone for what we are watching and the emotions we have invested in the movie.

On This Podcast Episdoe:

Millennial Filmmaker Nate Gold joins us for a chat about Score: A Film Music Documentary, which he was one of the film’s Director of Photography and Producers. He shares the journey of the documentary from concept to release and how he first fell in love with filmmaking (and chased after his dream to become a cinematographer).
