In our 117th episode, we’re joined by the one and only Jonah Matranga! Jonah is the vocal and guitar legend behind Far, onelinedrawing, Gratitude, New End Original, and many others. We cover damn near everything in this conversation: Jonah’s Boston roots and his early intro to music, moving to Cali and the 90s Sacramento scene, Far’s legacy and their impact on music, the Gratitude album, his songwriting approach, collaborating with the likes of Lupe Fiasco/Mike Shinoda/Taproot, and deep dive into his new onelinedrawing record “Tenderwild” dropping June 24, 2022. Jonah could be at the centerpiece of the Podioslave world and we’re here for it. This is a can’t miss conversation.
We also touch on mental health issues and artists we’ve lost to suicide fairly early in the episode. If you or a loved one is experiencing thoughts of suicide - don’t hesitate to call below:
