Art of the Song / Standing "O" Podcast

Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Mid-Week Coffee Break is Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and musical satirist Eric Schwartz.

Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer, satirist multi-instrumentalist and entertainer Eric Schwartz (aka Eric “Red” Schwartz) tours the U.S. and Europe bringing his music to every audience he can find. He’s been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years (the Improv, The Bluebird, The Comedy Store, The Bottom Line…). He has composed for and performed in various Satiristas shows spearheaded by Paul Provenza, as well as “The Bad Boys of Comedy” with Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton et. al. His songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks. Schwartz is possibly the only artist in the history of the world to get raves from Gloria Steinem and Hustler Magazine, Eric’s songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both (see the International Songwriting Competition’s best comedy song of the year, “Clinton Got a Blowjob”.)

Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Mid-Week Coffee Break is Kansas City-based singer/songwriter Wyatt Brewer, who will be releasing his new EP "Factory Made", December 10.

Wyatt Brewer started at age 4 helping my dad in his home 4-Track studio. Helping unplug wires and making the intricate spaghetti work on older modeled equipment, paved the way to doing the same things on digital equipment in our new digital age. Wyatt learned guitar from my dad at age 10 in the year 2000. He performed in talent shows through middle and high school, and found enjoyment in writing his own songs at age 14. He has had a couple song placements in advertising, but most of his love is in finding new ways to tell the same stories we have always known: Love, pain, death, and rebirth. December 10th will be his first official release. It is an EP titled, "Factory Made."
