On this week’s episode, Kraz talks with G. Love, frontman of G. Love & Special Sauce. G. Love & Special Sauce have made a name for themselves by fusing together blues and hip hop influences to create a unique sound of their own- their style is soulfully inclusive, and a standout example of the 90’s phenomenon that is the birth of niche genres.
G. Love’s big touring plans for 2020 were put on hold due to coronavirus, but the group’s patience was rewarded with a Grammy nomination for their 2020 album The Juice. The album is a definitive example of G. Love’s dynamic artistic capabilities; the record finds a feel-good balance between light-hearted and serious tones, and includes songs ranging from up-beat soul-pop tunes, to gritty delta blues music.
G. Love and Kraz get down to it right from the get-go- in this conversation the longtime friends discuss nuances in the production process, complexities of the modern music industry, live performance anxieties, and much more. For aspiring artists, you can’t miss G. Love’s breakdown of the decisions that have made his group what they are today. From the studio, to the road, to personal life decisions, he covers the whole map.
