5 Questions With … Scott Terry (Red Wanting Blue)


Here is the latest installment of JACOMB’s Five Questions With featuring Red Wanting Blue frontman Scott Terry.

Scott discusses the new album, the name of the hidden track and how it came to be, his favorite places to play outside of Columbus and more. We had a slight interruption during the interview as one of Columbus’s finest police officers came upstairs to discuss a slight incident involving stolen gear … but no worries, the bad guys were caught by Charlie’s Angel.



Five Questions With … Justin Tranter (SPW)


After a bit of a summer break … it’s time to hit the streets with another edition of Five Questions With …. featuring the charismatic frontman of Semi Precious Weapons Justin Tranter. I met Justin (and his adorable, lovable mom) at a Swig Tooth show in Asbury Park, New Jersey, in the summer of 2006. I remember asking him if he would mind if I photographed their show in Columbus later that summer. He said, “I was made for the camera.” He’s right.

Here is (significantly more than) Five Questions With … Justin Tranter

Check back later for Five Questions With Aaron Tasjan … singer/songwriter and guitarist for Semi Precious Weapons … and a native of New Albany, Ohio.

5 Questions With … Micah Schnabel (Two Cow Garage)


Well, another Monday, another 5 Questions With … this time with the genius that is Micah Schnabel from Two Cow Garage.  I’m a HUGE fan of this band, and proud to be friends with Micah, Shane, Chris, Andy and Cody.

In this episode Micah and I discuss the new Two Cow Garage album, his songwriting style, best and worst cities to play, life on the road, his heroes and influences and life on the road … and when NOT on the road.’


And here’s Micah from Two Cow Garage rocking out in one of my favorite photos of him I’ve taken:

5 Questions With … Colin Gawel


Colin Gawel is what rock and roll is about – fun. His stage presence is unmatched, he’s toured all over the country with his band Watershed, made eight albums with the group and has his music played on various shows on MTV, VH1 and other cable networks, and currently featured in the State of Ohio’s Tourism campaign called “The Best Is Yet To Come” … after the closing tune on 2005 Watershed album “The 5th of July.”  In the 5 questions we talk about The League Bowlers, Colin’s solo CD, how the mere mention of it made my camera fall over (that’s the joke he makes about making things crash) and upcoming plans for Watershed.

So … enjoy 5 Questions with … Colin Gawel

5 Questions with … Roy Davis


One of the things I love about the Internet is the amazing ability to find music, and for musicians to find fans.

Case in point – Roy Davis & The Dregs, from Portland, Maine. I got a friend request from them, a few weeks before their show in Columbus on July 21, at the Rumba. Sadly, not many saw the show. You missed a great performance by a great band.

I will readily admit not listening to their music until the day of the show, and it was only then I realized just how good these guys were. I had to go to the show.

And, Roy was nice enough to talk before the show … which is the first of a new series here on the new music blog called “5 Questions (more or less) With …”

So … with that in mind, here is 5 Questions (more or less) With … Roy Davis, where we discuss the tour, the impact of MySpace on music, and a Columbus legend – White Castle.  (Yeah, and dumbass me clearly says it was the Beastie Boys with “You Be Illin'” … DOH … that would be Run-D.M.C. … I am so losing points on the hip-hop street cred scoresheet.)

He was gracious enough to allow me to post an MP3 from his great CD “Deadweight” … which is easily on my top 10 so far for 2008.
