My guest this week on the Voices In My Head Podcast is singer, songwriter, and guitarist Andy Gullahorn. The first time I ever heard Andy Gullahorn play guitar, I didn’t know him by name. I was watching a live music video by Andrew Peterson online and was blown away by the incredible backup guitarist that he had on stage. As time went on I discovered not only his name but that he was also the guitarist for Jill Phillips and was also an amazing Singer and Songwriter himself. His new album is titled “Beyond The Frame” and it is one of the top albums that I’ve had the pleasure of hearing this year offering tracks that literally make me laugh, make me cry, and make me want to be a better person.
He’s a folk singer, he a festival organizer, and he’s a dad again for the second time. This week on Voices In My Head we welcome back Folk singer and songwriter Daniel Dye. His new album, Blinded Again, is about to release, his new daughter was just born, and this year’s Madden Road Festival on August 16th is a new kind of awesome. It’s a whole episode of newness as I accompany Daniel on piano as we play some of his new songs.
Nick Flora is an independent performing songwriter from Nashville, TN. Nick has been writing, recording, and touring with his music since he was a teenager with a passion for creating interesting, engaging, and enjoyable songs. His latest album, The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora, broke the top 40 on iTunes on the day of it’s release. The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora has been on this musicians playlist for a couple of months now and it quickly became one of my favorites with songs both heavy and light-hearted, listening to the album from start to finish is a rewarding process, well-worth the time. It’s my pleasure to welcome Nick Flora back to Voices In My Head.
