I needed a briefing on what has been going on with Russia and their rapidly declining human rights policies, and I know no one better to talk to about these things than by dear friend and NYC bad-ass, Ken Kidd. This is an unedited discussion recorded on my iPhone in Ken’s office. No frills, but plenty of important information that needs to be heard. Listen. Share. Act.
My good friend and collaborator, Leah Coloff is my guest today. Leah is a cellist, singer and composer based here in Brooklyn, NY. It was great to talk to her about her forthcoming album, gralbums, loss, and creation. Check it out and check HER out at leahcoloff.com.
Every now and then someone shows up in my life in a wild moment of synchronicity who I know I’m really supposed to plug into. Victoria is one such person. She’s been a teacher and mentor to me for some time now, so I’m really excited to have her as a guest on today’s podcast. We talk a bunch about her new solo show, No Need For Seduction, which opens THIS FRIDAY at Dixon Place. There’s some interesting talk about Archetypes in performance and I included a couple of tracks from Ólafur Arnalds brilliant new album and a piece of my own in this show as well.
As always, thanks for listening to the show and I welcome your feedback!
I was busy putting together a performance over the past month or so, so the poor podcast suffered from a bit of neglect. No worries, though! I have an interview recorded with Victoria Libertore that I’ll post this weekend and you can always catch up with my solo antics at michaelharren.com.
Sabrina Lastman and Sasha Bogdanowitsch join me in this episode to discuss their project, the Vital Vox Festival, a vocal music festival taking place on March 25th and 26th here in Brooklyn at Roulette. I’m really excited about this show, and even more so about the actual festival. Thanks for listening!

Take a peak at I Care If You Listen, a great new music blog I discovered while researching the festival!
Composer/performer, Eve Beglarian joins me today in an interview we recorded in her apartment in NYC. Eve is a massive inspiration to me and I so happy to have her as a guest again on the podcast. Lots of fun info about her self-propelled journey along the Mississippi River and the work that resulted.

You can still get copies of her latest EPs here and here. Support the arts, yo!
Uniform Motion‘s Andy Richards joins me from Tolouse, France on this episode of MikeyPod to talk about his work and we had a really great conversation about the methods his band has used to promote and raise money for their various projects. Fellow musicians, I highly recommend you read their writings about DIY music production.
