FUTUREBOY, is the first of 3 new EP’s coming your way from one of our favorite artists, Nick Flora.

My guest this week is the host of a great radio program call Under The Radar which weekly features gourmet music by both mainstream and independent artists. It’s pleasure to share airtime with this truly cool husband, father of 5, and connoisseur of pizza. It’s a really great show and we cover a lot of topics including Under The Radar’s summer show, Escape To The Lake, which will feature friend of the Podcast Sara Groves on their main stage. You won’t want to miss this great episode of Voices In My Head.
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.
My guest this week on Voices In My Head is Nashville Singer and Songwriter Stacy Lantz. Stacy is one of the best kept secrets in Nashville. With a voice as piercing & powerful as her predecessors, Lantz pulls influence from such greats as Patty Griffin, Eva Cassidy, & Bonnie Raitt. She covers the human experience through a lens of hope, the inevitability of change, and the occasional well-timed brush of quirkiness. She also has one of the most unique and awesome voices this Podcast host has ever heard. Find out more about her at StacyLantz.com.
I also do a little improvisational Pickin’ and Grinnin’ on my acoustic guitar to start out today’s episode. It’s a great show today folks, but don’t take my word for it, listen to it right now.
It’s the first show of 2013 and this episode is loaded with great stuff. My guest today is Nick Flora, a one man Rock and Roll show.
