Scott Cooper, Rob Szabo and band

Today I have a two for one deal for you. Instead of one awesome guest songwriter, I had two songwriters drop by my home. Scott Cooper grew up in Midland and he was in town because on September 15, he had the hometown release of his third CD, tiny increments. At the CD release, Scott performed with a hot seven piece band which included his producer and bandmate, Rob Szabo. Rob opened the concert with a brilliant solo acoustic set of pop flavored, rhythmic, lyrical gems. Rob also has two cds available for purchase on his website, the most recent is: Like a Metaphor.

The next day, the three of us sat down in my rec room to record an episode of For the Sake of the Song. Part of the discussion was about the various services indie musicians can use to sell their music online. (Yah, Yah– I’ve got to get around to getting my music on itunes and available for online purchase). I enjoyed the concert and the discussion so much that I edited the show immediately and bumped it up my 3 month long queue of shows that are read, so just a few days after the event, please enjoy my interview with Scott Cooper and Rob Szabo.
