Just Music

Just Music

By Sara Mathius
'Just Music' was born with the aim of giving voice to independent artists outside of the musical radio formula.

This is an independent monthly podcast -entertaining and informal- from just 5 to 10 min chatting with the best musician/artists-.

During this experience I have had the pleasure of interviewing recognized artists as Chilly Gonzales -a Grammy-winning Canadian musician- as well as 'The Ramonas': the UK's best tribute act to the iconic New York forerunners of punk The Ramones, among others.
