Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Apr 27, 2021

Whether he's heaving the heavy breath of texture as one of the guitarists in Pianos Become the Teeth or bumping the bass as SUAHN, Mike York is one of the most musically savvy dudes around... he's also just a true joy to talk with.

This episode has it all.  We talk tone, writing back in the early band days vs writing now, jumping genres, being band dad and more.  There are many layers to Mike just as there are many layers to his music.

The sonic sequel to my conversation with Zac and Kyle from a few weeks back.

Be sure to keep up with Mike's music through @suahnmusic and @pianosband on all the platforms, and listen to them wherever you listen to music.

If you want to hear more of this conversation, the extended version is available to patrons on all tiers at the Rigs of Dad Patreon page. Gear nerd deep dives, some of the inner workings of the PBTT album in the works, and so much more.  You can even take some deep dives with more of my guests, get some Patreon exclusive swag, and more by checking out the Rigs of Dad Patreon page at OR just download the Patreon ap, search for Rigs of Dad, and you can support creators like me and so many more in the process!
