This week we are joined by the unbelievably talented Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, as well as Kevin Oates, their brilliant instructor and founder of MYRO, and one of the musicians who supplied some great music for them to play, Sara Hallie Richardson.

Maine youth rock orchestra is an organization in part with the Maine Academy of Modern Music that provides orchestral string students ages 12-18 the opportunity to work along side and perform with Maine-based bands and musicians in an alternative setting, creating a positive environment for students to be creative and to explore their musical abilities.

They have a premiere performance coming up so full of musical talent, that it might blow the audiences’ socks off at Port City Music Hall on May 8th, starting at 7:30pm, featuring the MYRO, Sara Hallie Richardson, Lyle Divinsky and some Yard Sail.

Episode 46 w/ Sara Hallie Richardson

Play

Welcome to Episode 46.  For this episode, Sara Hallie Richardson was kind of enough to traverse Market St with us.  Finally ended up at The Armory.  From there, martinis and coffee were consumed and we talked about her new album, Restless.  We discussed the way in which the album was recorded and the instruments, software and techniques used for production. We also took a pretty deep dive in to most of the songs, covering everything from what the songs were about to the transitions used to move from verses to choruses.  The album is available through iTunes and bandcamp right now.

Episode #35 Roundtable 6- Ladies’ Night

Play

Welcome to episode 35, Ladies’ Night!  Holly Nunan, Anna Lombard and Sara Hallie Richardson helped us maintain our “Explicit” rating, during our conversation at The Armory in Portland.

We discussed each of their musical projects, where their interest in music comes from and the way they approach song writing.  You will also hear Trent read a deeply personal email of Anna’s.  Also, as a bonus, you will hear as Holly attempts to restrain herself when Dan reveals how feels about a certain classic rock Darling.

As with the previous episode, you are far better off listening to this, than reading a bunch of cold and cobbled together words on a screen.  Download it now.
