After a little over a year, the Smart Musician podcast is returning. Also known as the TSM Podcast, this series will be getting a slight name change–it will now be called the TSM Music Tech Podcast, putting the focus on gear and the creative uses of technology both on stage and in the studio. John Thayer and I have started production and will have Episode 17 on its way very soon.

Along with the name change will be a new podcast series that will be more general in topic, not as tightly focused on gear and technology, but will cover anything related to crating and performing music, the Smart Musician way. This series will feature more interviews with bands and musicians like you, sharing their insights, experiences and perspectives on creating and performing music.

There is also one other podcast series in the works that will center on quick tips–more to come on that soon. As we get the podcast engines humming again, we would love to hear from you about what topics interest you the most, what burning questions or thoughts you have or problems/issues you are trying to solve. Please let us know by leaving a note in the comments below or by sending a message on the Contact Us page.

Hi Everyone!

It has been over a month since the last episode, and it was high-time to get something out to you!

This week, Tom is flying solo, John is stuck between the matrix and a new home, and the engines are firing back up with some new experimental things to add to the TSM lineup…

…and a little talk about the beauty of old-school tube amp simplicity.

Here are the links Tom was trying to remember, but his old age just wouldn’t let him:
