Meet Lil Red & The Medicated Moose
We had the opportunity to sit down with Lil Red and the Medicated Moose (also known as Tiffany & Bryan Jurries) and talk all things music and some things not music. These two vibrant beings are not slowing down anytime soon! Their passion for music and each other shines through in every aspect,  and we think your going to fall in love with them as much as we did <3  In their words,  "Lil Red and the Medicated Moose Band is the story about how two awkward, bullied kids found each other and fell in love. They both also shared a love for writing, music, and creativity. Through and with each other they create on a whole new level. Watch as they try to escape the life that they are "supposed" to have and make some amazing things together".  Bryan has also started his own Podcast called "The World Community". Join this community that is looking to be a positive force on the internet affected world. With the goal in mind to shine some light on positive news stories, tell the listeners about things that Bryan loves, and let the listeners know about people in the community that need our help, this will surely be a great one to add to your podcast player!

Meet James Dean
We're happy to have the opportunity to share this conversation with all of you. We had the pleasure of meeting James Dean this last year at an open mic here in Yankton. It was the first time we'd heard him play and it was NOT what we expected. James uses looping to create an amazing vibrational soundscape that takes the listener on a musical journey. It starts out with a single instrument and with the use of musical loops being superimposed on one another, taken in and out, and improvised and composed upon with rhythm and melodies, it builds into a complete symphony of sound. It's like painting with notes. In James' own words, " The growth of a musical composition in this form denies instant gratification and rather invites the listener on a gradual journey to fruition. As a tiny seed grows and blossoms into maturity. We couldn't have said it any better!  Take a listen and learn about how buying a guitar at a Flea Market became the catalyst for bringing forth this amazing gift to all of us! Thanks again to Ben Hanten for all of his help getting our podcast up and going, and for recognizing the value of original music!!
