ZZ Ward broke into the airwaves with her hit single, “Put the Gun Down.” The singer songwriter impressed listeners with her powerful, soulful vocals blended with hip hop-tinged rhythms. Ward has since been busy on the road, promoting her debut album and swiftly gaining in popularity and acclaim. ZZ Ward recently took a break from her busy schedule to speak to Bethany at Midcoast Station in between a day of double Kansas City performances. Ward spoke about her music, guest contributors and life on the road with her puppy, Buddy (who also joined for the interview).
Named a 2013 Artist to Watch by Billboard and MTV, Robert DeLong has taken the music scene by storm since releasing his debut album, Just Movement, in February of this year. He’s already played almost every major music festival in the U.S. (including Coachella and multiple shows at SXSW) and completely refined the EDM category by blending dance elements with heavy drum influence, introspective lyrics and manipulated game controllers.
Midcoast Station was fortunate enough to interview Robert between shows and talk touring, signing with Glassnote, and his quest to meet Hulk Hogan.

I had the pleasure to check in with Gregory Alan Isakov via phone interview to see how his summer tour was going and when we can expect a new album. After a long stretch of shows and a few dates playing with the Lumineers in Texas Isakov is working on finishing the newest album which […]
Catch MUTEMATH on the band’s Odd Soul tour Thursday at the Beaumont Club, and — from MUTEMATH drummer Darren King’s perspective — you’ll be catching the band at the peak of its live-performing powers. At least, so far. “I don’t think we’ve made our best record yet,” King said Tuesday from Salt Lake City. “I […]
I had the opportunity to touch base with Dallas Green- City and Colour- while on tour promoting his new album, Little Hell. View tour dates here and then click on over to Amazon to download “Weightless”, if you haven’t already, as City and Colour is featured on their Artists on the Rise for November. […]
Getting the news that you are going to be able to interview a member of your favorite band is almost more scary than exciting. I mean, you don’t want to look like an ass in front of someone who inspires you every day! So writing questions was nerve-racking to say the least, but more importantly […]
