William Matheny, Singer-Songwriter #010
William Matheny sits down with Brad Goodall on this week's episode of the Whizzbang Podcast.   Brad and William discuss old video store memories, his goals for his new record, favorite movies, and finally moving back into the realm of live shows.    Check out William's latest release, "Mind For Leaving"! As well as hints of a new record on the way. There is talent you glancingly acknowledge and then there is talent you ignore at your own risk. Consider West Virginia’s William Matheny amongst the latter. His solo debut album, Strange Constellations (released 2017 on Misra), contained echoes of the hard won wit and wisdom of Loudon Wainwright, the guitar prowess of James Burton, and the tensile anger of a young Paul Westerberg. Misra then also released the follow-up EP Moon Over Kenova and the 7” Christian Name, both of which occured in 2018. “Christian Name”, in particular, has become lauded as Matheny’s signature song in recent years. For those fortunate several who have seen Matheny perform his indelible tunes live, there is no further need of proof. For those not yet in the know, see him at your next opportunity, and prepare to be floored. Follow William  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheWilliamMa...

Jeremy Short, Vocalist/Guitarist of Short & Company Ep. #007
Jeremy Short sits down with Brad Goodall on this week's episode of the Whizzbang Podcast.   Original recipe singer-songwriter and genre-bending guitar blazer,  Kentucky native Jeremy Short, has quickly risen to the top shelf of must-hear players on the scene. GIven an Gibson SG, by his grandfather – a well known Methodist preacher, Short recalls with a laugh, “he handed it to me and said – let’s not make this a full time thing”.   First making a name for himself as the solo-ripping sideman of the red-hot Americana act, “Sasha Colette & The Magnolias”, then front man and lead guitarist of the horn-fueled R&B band “Downtown King”. Now he has found his home and what he calls “his own thing” in Short & Company.    Leaving his soul on the floor, and yours in shreds, “Ain’t That Workin”, “Bartender” and “Set in Her Ways” show why Short is a 2 Time Semi-finalist, and 2019 competitor at the International Blues Challenge, a competition featuring the best blues acts from around the globe.     But blues aren’t his only groove.     One spin of Lost in A Spin, released March 2018, and Short will have you eating from the palm of his hand.       With dance club ready R&B hits like “Shake It Off”, “You & Me”, and lead single “If The Spirit Moves You”, Short encourages you to forget the stresses of the 9-5 chaos, and get lost in his music. “Sometimes, you just gotta dance to get it out. So if you feel like dancing, dance. If you feel like singing along, do it. Do what feels right.”      Gearing down and getting candid about life in coal country with “This Mountain”(written with former Sasha & The Mags members, Sasha Colette and Steve Barker), “Fast Eddie”- the story of a good guy who can’t kick his habit and get his life together, “Barefoot Beauty”, a ballad about a “heart of gold that loves to sin”, and the gut-wrenching closer and only acoustic track, “Mountains of the Like”, Short manages to deliver an entire album of raw, untailored glimpses into life in small town Appalachia.       Touching on the throes of addiction, his shameless love of a strong willed woman, and his need to escape and hit the road, Short is unafraid to share both where he’s coming from and what exactly he is hoping to accomplish.       Having already notched his belt with festivals like Bonnaroo, Mountain Music Festival, FestivALL, Kickin It On The Creek, & Whispering Beard, as well as direct support for the likes of Taj Mahal,  Robert Cray, Marcus King Band, & Rev Peyton & The Big Damn Band, the future is looking bright for both Short — and his Company.   Follow Jeremy Short  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/shortandcompany   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/shortandcompany/  Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGw9WY4CfQ5nmsnmuEVTDeg?   Follow Brad  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BradGoodallM...  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brad_goodal...   Follow WhizzbangBAM  Website: https://whizzbangbam.com/​  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whizzbangbam​  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/whizzbangbam​  Spotify: http://bit.ly/WhizzBangBAMSpotify
