Ilan Berman Assesses the Western Response to Ukraine

"Ilhan, we've talked about the danger of a landlocked Ukraine. Let's talk about our actions to date. I've said $40 billion worth of aid doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of cash to Kyiv, especially when it has line items for $7 billion for the State Department and undisclosed amount of money for the CIA. That doesn't look like a to Kyiv, having spoken to cramming knowledge with people who've worked in the Ukraine, what they need is what is zelensky's calling for, which is weapons, which is weaponry, ammunition, wheeled vehicles to move their troops and also training of their reserves in safe locales like the Baltics and Poland. Will you give us your assessment of the west on blocks response to this war in the last three months? Right. Well, I mean, there's a lot there to unpack. But listen, I think generally I'm positive on the western response. I do have some of the same misgivings as you, which is because our politics I may say charitably have become intolerably stupid. Not ours. America's not ours, America's politics. D.C.'s. There is this false equation that if you somehow question the line items in the $40 billion that you are not your put inside. Putin side or you're somehow not supportive enough of Ukraine. But the more nuanced argument is, I firmly believe sunlight is the best disinfectant. I want to see what's sort of what is allocated, whether it's actually going to be useful to Ukraine. And accountability. Absolutely. But can I just flip on that? That's stupid politics. There's also the flip side of that, that if you're pro as we are supporting what I see is Ukraine 1776. Suddenly you're an interventionist neocon. That's

Ilan Berman Describes Why Russia 'Needs' Ukraine

"And there's really not a lot of understanding about why Russia cares so much about Ukraine. Why Ukraine really occupies why Ukraine is as the kids say living rent free and Vladimir Putin's head. But the reason is because Ukraine is the wellspring from which the Russian imperial impulse sprang. Without Ukraine, without Kievan Rus', there's no Russian Empire. So you can not be a new Russian Empire without subjugating Ukraine

Little old Ilhan Berman, what did you do? Well, would you like to take back the Crimea single handedly? What did you do? Well, so as they say in business, you haven't really arrived until somebody sued you.

Talking Geopolitical Culpability With Ilan Berman

"What is the real culpability for the west in terms of the Ukraine being where it is after the Budapest memorandum whereby they gave up their nuclear weapons in exchange for promises, quasi security promises that they would be safe because if Ukrainian nuclear weapons today, they would have been no invasion. So let's talk the truth about the geopolitical culpability here. That's right. Well, and remember, this is the immediate post Soviet collapse era. There was an attempt on the part of the United States and everybody else to try to keep a lid on what could have become a later did become in the former Yugoslavia, right? A very sort of factional sort of geopolitical realignment. And the sort of the compact that was made was that Ukraine would give up nuclear weapons. But by the way, not just give up, but give up back to Russia. Yes, nuclear weapons. In exchange for Russian guarantees that they would protect the sanctity of Ukrainian sovereign territory, which by the way, I think is useful to point out because now nobody talks about it. Everyone talks about we promised them. Was with Russia as well. That's right. And Russia promised that Russia at that time recognized Ukraine as an independent state, Russia at that time guaranteed to Ukraine that it would not engage in belligerence against Ukraine. Vladimir Putin simply doesn't read those parts of the memorandum when he goes on TV. And what we did was we created reciprocal guarantees that said that we, because Ukraine was very objectively becoming weaker by giving up these nuclear weapons that we would step in if there was ever a clash like this. Without them being a member of NATO article 5 protections. That's right. So now what you find is you find the Ukrainian leadership, president zelensky, his compatriots and Kyiv are sort of caught between a rock and a hard place. They're caught between a Russia that very clearly is going back on the terms of the Budapest

Putin's Real Game Plan With Ilan Berman

"Me ask you this. Did you expect this to be here so quickly 14 months into this administration with knowing what you know about Putin? Well, it's interesting because Putin the grievance that Putin is acting on now is a long-standing one. Yes. I mean, what I think most people don't quite understand is Putin as viewed from Moscow sees the end of the Cold War, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the post Cold War position of Russia as inherently unfair. Putin sees Russia as a great power. So he's a social justice warrior because it's unfair. SJW. SJW out there. Not quite that good. But he thinks that what you're looking at is a situation where the zone of freedom, zone of European freedom is expanding. The zone of Russian influence is contracting. The way I like to explain it is he feels like he's in a box and he's constantly pushing against the corners of the box to see whether there's give, whether there's an ability to change Russian foreign policy to advantage Moscow and disadvantage Brussels and London and everybody else. I love the way you phrase that. The box of European freedom is expanding, which for him is a bad thing because let's be clear he may sell this vision to the American to the Russian people that NATO's coming and they're going to invade and they've already encircled us, but the real threat to him is the expansion of the concept of freedom and democracy into Russia. Is it not England? No, no, that's precisely right. And that's why I think it's actually it's necessary to sort of drill down a little bit and explain what he believes, because our Friends, when they talk about Russia, they look at Vladimir Putin, he's an unreconstructed KGB agent. He rose up through the ranks to positions of leadership in the Soviet Union. And so they immediately default to the idea that, oh, he just wants to recreate the Soviet Union. But if you look at what he's been saying lately, that's actually not the case. It's bigger. It's bigger and it's older. Because what he's talking about, what he talked about in his February 21st speech before the invasion, what he talked about in his February 24th speech right after the invasion, he's talking about the fact that the Soviet Union made a lot of mistakes. And they made

Who Is Ilan Berman of the American Foreign Policy Council?

"For those who haven't heard our earlier discussions here on America first, will you just give them the potted introduction who Ilhan is and what the FPC does. Sure. So AFC is a think tank. Everything tank has an area of focus. We spend a lot of time working with Congress because candidly, ideas begin in very few places. And members of Congress need cutting edge accurate sort of impactful information about what's going on around the world. So we have a stable of experts that cover everything from Iran to Russia, to radical Islam, to China, to China, space, and the goal here is to inform policy to help them craft better policy, but more than anything else. It's to sort of to amplify the efforts of policymakers who are trying to defend American national security, promote American foreign policy interests. And your family background, where do you hail from originally? Well, all over, but my parents were Soviet refused next, right? So explain that to him for those who are Cold War warriors like me, what was a refuse neck. Right. So I refused it was someone who usually Jewish as my family is, but not only, but a refusal was somebody who during the Soviet Union for whatever reason for political purposes for religious freedom purposes applied to exit the Soviet Union and they were denied. And they were essentially made non people. They weren't allowed to have party affiliation. There weren't allowed to work in certain jobs, and only through the pressure of the United States government, including people like senator Henry Jackson, there was enough pressure that was placed on the Soviet Union that the Soviets opened up the doors and allowed refuse, including pretty significant wave of Jewish refusing to

"Compliances and mentioned before. So even at the beginning, it was very important for us to have some sort of a version that is being deployed in their premises without any information going out. So even at the beginning of when we just started light one, we had two ways to support customers. One is our very simple to use SaaS product and the second one is a very lightweight on premise deployment. Which assess them to maintain and manage the whole dataflow within the organization. So even at the beginning, we already had that line of product. And this is something that you don't see a lot in early stage companies and is derived based on our experience working with other startup companies before. And we simply suffered from this lack of support for this enterprise company when the company goes. So it was pretty clear for both of us that we want to support this motion, even at the beginning, even in early days. And it worked like magic. It simply allowed us to penetrate to some heavy regulated big really big organizations straight from the beginning. That's great. I love it that it worked like magic. I can feel your confidence in saying that, that's great. Thanks, thanks, no appreciate. Well, as you step out on the balcony and you look across all that you've built, what are you most proud of? The thing that I'm most proud of is the team. I'm leaving aside the product because the product is still woven and have so many ideas of how we're gonna build this platform so many tests to conduct, but the thing that I am so proud of is our team. We've built this team of rockstars. It sounds like very cliche, but it is true. And from the management team that is very sharp strategic and has some great domain expertise and we really wrote some great people from the greatest companies in our in the dev space that we're dealing with leaders coming from snake and J fog. So this is one thing that I mentioned and the other one is some great great great and hungry young, you know, people and employees that joined us with this mission of working very hard and eventually achieving success within their work at light one. The other thing that I'm proud about the team is that it seems like we can do everything. Again, this fearless and competitive spirit and still have fun. So I think it's very important and I can tell you that myself and even others that I'm talking with them on a day to today basis. We simply enjoy arriving the office. So I think this is the thing that I'm most proud of. Well, let's flip the script a little bit. So tell me about a mistake you made and how you and your team responded to it. Yeah, I can give you I can give you one. I think we weren't smart enough to establish a strong leadership team at the beginning. We build this organization bottom up. Which has some great great great advantages. But eventually, I think that we should have higher the VP management level. A bit before. And this will, this is very important when you want to scale very fast, because managers are crucial in order to scale the organization. So this is something that simply couldn't anticipate that we're going to grow so fast and we're going to raise this amount of money in the short and pretty short period of time. So once that happened, I can say that, again, retrospectively, I'll be happy to have more leaders in the company. To be able to support the fast pace that we should adjust. So I'm very happy to mention that now we're succeeding in building this management level, but I think that with respectively again, it was better to happen before. So what does the future look like for the product and for your team? So let's start with the team. As mentioned before, now it's the phase where we are scaling the organization and scaling the business because obviously the first phase of any given startup companies this product market fit. Once the product market fit, once we achieve that, and we saw rapid use cases daily rapidity use cases inside the organization and also in between organizations, we get this confidence that we have a great product that now we should scale it. So in terms of hiring and tin, again, we're now 30 people. We're going to be 60 employees in three quarters from now, and we're going to finish the next year. Something like 75 employees. So we're going to grow very fast. And this means that we're going to enrich and empower our routine with more and more go to market hires. So again, at the beginning, we've been hiring mainly greatest developers and now on top of this R and D in product and engineering stuff that we constantly grow, we also grow and establish more and more go to market hires, whether it's sales, developer relations, community, marketing, et cetera. So this is how the future looks like in terms of team. In terms of product and strategy and vision, we're going to simply become the standard of how developers being able to better observe understanding the bug live applications. Again, we see great great great tools out there or observability tools which allow operators to maintain production environments, but as I claim before, we want to shift left observability and become the de facto standard of the right tooling, which assists developers to.

"ilan " Discussed on Code Story

"This is code story. The podcast bringing you interviews with tech visionaries. Who share in the critical moments of what it takes to change an industry and build and lead. A team that has your back. I'm your host, no lab part. And today how Elon Pelé created the best friend for developers. Helping them to observe their applications. All this and more on code story. Elin peleg is 29 years old and has been a longtime middle distance runner. He previously ran the 800 meters and served in the Israeli army as a professional athlete. At the age of 21, he retired and started his tech career. He said that there are many who would correlate their Israeli service area with their professional success. He just recently got engaged and he proposed to his fiance outside of Tel Aviv on a cliff in the same spot where they had their first kiss. Generally, he enjoys sports and athletics and sees it has a positive effect on how he manages his team. He also likes to travel and stay educated on the topics that he follows. Elon and his cofounder were developers in many different types of companies. Startups, enterprises, et cetera. It seemed to them that it was easy to debug and troubleshoot applications in development, but found it very difficult to observe applications in production. They realized that most developers were not equipped with the right tooling to troubleshoot and understand why applications. In the wild. This is the creation story of light run. So light one is in the mission to become the best friend of the developers helping them to better observe understanding debug live applications. Two years ago, myself and my partner in crime lonely bluestein was the CTO and the cofounder of the company. You know, we both been developers in both enterprise organizations and environments as well as some successful startup companies which required. And it fell to us that we simply were not equipped with the right tooling to be able to troubleshoot debug live applications running in the wild. It seemed to us that when you're developing it's much easier to debug and troubleshoot applications in there. And it seemed to us that from one hand under this DevOps culture that is emerging. Southern developers also own reliability and are in charge of debugging and testing rather than the old workflow developers simply had to develop and then there are some support engines or operators maintaining the production application environment. So now in this we all know the infinite loop of DevOps as we imagine it, so from one hand, the gap between the built and production lines, but on the other hand, developers simply are not equipped with the right tooling to debug these live applications running in the wild. So what we kind of aim is to a better world when we're developers are being able to troubleshoot and understand live applications in the wild in the same ease of use as their doing with development applications in debt. We call it shift left observability. We claim that the current observability stack is based on this, I would say ancient kind of paradigm of look everything analyze data. Again, developers have to predefine all the logs metrics places that want to collect from live applications. And then these software is being shipped to production, and there's so many tools out there which assist you to aggregate huge amounts of data correlated, analyzing, visualizing. But they all of them, they are concentrated on the right bound of the SDLC. There are mainly targeting operators. So we are being inspired by companies such as snake shifted lift security and Pacific shifted left operations and now for us it's time to shift left observability and what we practical means. I know developers are listening to this podcast as well. So sorry for being very technical here, but starting developers have been able to connect live applications and while they're still running in real time during runtime, create an ops free process and allow them to add new lobes matrix traces to live applications and by doing so they're simply being able to travel suit applications much faster and generally speaking, understand their behavior. So again, this is where we started two years ago. Now we are proud to mention that we already secured almost $30 million on the funding. The latest round was led by insight partners, 5 months ago. We're now 30 employees but we're going to double this number by the upcoming three quarters. Three quarters sorry from now. Operating from Israel and the U.S. as well. So this is very briefly. Very recently named as Gartner cool vendor. And I think that we see a very good reaction from the market. You know, with regards to our new approach. Well, let's dive into the first product you build. So tell me about the MVP, the first version of the product. How long did it take you to build? And what sort of tools did you use to bring it to life? For the context, our main product allows developers to connect from within their own ID, two live applications running in the background. And you know, add new logs, metrics traces. So within the idea that are being able to choose a very specific line and decide what kind of pillar of observability whether it's a new log metric trace and stuff they're willing to add. You know, it requires us to develop a new plugin for ID, rather than doing. You know, only the rather than the main technology which assists us in instrumenting new code runtime. So what we've decided to do simply because we know developers, they are not so spoiled with regards to user interface, at least this is how we see it. So we started so our MD was a CLI action. Command line interface, which triggers this API and assist developers in the main functionality of adding new logs to runtime applications in real time. So the MVP, again, was not around adding the all three pillars of observability from a very native plugin on top of ID. But it was a CLI and the only command that was being able to be triggered by developers is add new log. So this was our MVP,.

So sometimes we're able to work with companies sometimes we offer Solutions frameworks that that help people in large companies and our guest this week in his example of someone who's put emerged concepts as well as their own hard lessons learned to good use our guest. This week is ilana glazer. He is the founder and ceo of synergy ai which is an a consultancy based in the bay area. He's had a lot of hands on experience with very large enterprises including some work as a product owner for ai. Enterprise solutions at wells fargo. Which is one of the largest financial services in the world So alon has a lot of great experience. He's being interviewed today as again founder and ceo of synergy and he speaks to us about the topic of maturity when we're looking at an individual line of business and we're figuring out these people ready to leverage ai or their specific questions we should be asking and there's factors we should be considering and those of you who listen in. On this week's episode and how ilan describes a immaturity you will recognize emerges critical capability model. If you go on google and you type in e. m. rj and then you type in critical capabilities. You'll find our model for a maturity which is a three part model. Ilan talks about some of those concepts in greater depth in terms of his own experience using them and then also talk a little bit about how to actually assess them. How do we assess the skills the culture and the actual resources data of a specific line of business. What are the kinds of questions. What are the kinds of of investigations. We need to do to figure out. Is this line of businesses. This group of folks within this large enterprise actually ready to consider using ai. In the first place at the end of this episode. Ilan talks about his five questions. These are tools that he uses when he's working with a team. That's ready to move forward on a and now it's time to pick their projects. How do we assess each individual project. The questions we asked to make sure this is actually a realistic project. What's a a short and fast way to be able to sum up what we think.

There's i don't remember his name. I think he looks like the annoying orange. What is his name. Charlie charlie kirk who literally said that what he fears is that they'll be millions of you. He named you by name. If you even want to be bothered with responding to him. I wanna give you the opportunity. He needs geography classes. And somebody needs to send him a gloat. Maybe from afghanistan. i'm from somalia and somali refugees in this country and many of them are prospering. Just as i have and you know that man and others can cry about it but the reality is this is a country that welcomes refugees and then on just welcome refugees.

What Should the American Position Be on Refugees?

"Trying to tell me that. We have to be stunned in surprised. When the taliban just takes over the country in a moment's notice no way the biden administration likely had intelligence that this was imminent. So why let it happen and one of the reasons why they let it happen. This is the argument meet. We made yesterday. That really has been kind of adopted by the mainstream in the conservative movement. Now which we are really pleased about is that this is all about refugees. Now look i like many other. Americans have a soft spot for people that are dislocated because of war or famine or things they did not create. What is the american position. Or what should the american position on refugees but first and foremost take care of our own citizens and let's look at where refugee resettlement has either been a good idea or a bad idea. This is what you do. When you create prudent policy well refugee resettlement from mogadishu somalia to minneapolis has been in on mitigated disaster gave us ilan omar tens of thousands of somali muslims. That are not assimilating with the american culture were there is now a congresswoman. Ilan omar does not say a positive thing about america at any point instead. She is sympathizing with our greatest enemies amongst many other questionable speeches and behavior from ilan omar refugee resettlement especially from the arab world has had a questionable at best track record. In fact i would say it has not been beneficial to the united states of america. Politically socially or culturally. So then why should we then run to try to accept tens of thousands of people from afghanistan.

"The b word was an event held by arc. That was meant to demystify bitcoin and specifically to demystify it for institutions. That had perhaps gotten off track with bitcoin in their relationship with bitcoin. During the absolute craziness of the first part of this year to that end yesterday saw sessions on energy and mining. Courtesy of nick carter sessions on the macro context with lynn alden discussions of human rights and bitcoin with alex glad scene but there was absolutely no doubt that the most anticipated part of the show was the discussion between jack. Dorsey kathy would andy mosque with steve lee from square crypto. Moderating as i said yesterday on the show the whole thing had come up theoretically spontaneously on twitter with ilan making a joke. On one of jack's threads at least that's what we were made to think. It seems far more likely to me that the whole thing was engineered by would herself. Who was up until very recently the connective link between ilan in the bitcoin. Space whatever the providence of the discussion however. There is no doubt that the market had serious anticipation around what was going to be said. Bitcoin had rallied from under thirty thousand dollars on tuesday to around thirty two thousand dollars as the discussion began. I think the best way to highlight the event is to go person by person and give a little sense of the highlights of what they discussed from there. I can provide a bit more of the shared. Sense of how the discussion proceeded.

You may have seen this or not. But there's Composers appreciation of the Beatles a documentary. It's on Youtube but this guy. His name is slipping my mind but he does such an immense job of raking down what it was that made so many of those songs incredible timeless and he does it in Layman's terms and talking about terms news time out key changes. He's talking about a modal melody. Which is what we're discussing right now. And he always stays he's like I'm not saying that the Beatles knew about this in fact I'm positive they didn't. Where would they have heard these things it could win? You know old English folksongs Celtic Melodies. So things kind of seeped their way into their psyche via culture. And I find that fascinating but Yeah I'm I'm really Impressed that you've taken the time to sort of analyze what I do naturally and it's much appreciated. I gotTa tell you it does. It never sounded like you were building specifically within a set of confines. It sounds like you were exploring all the available space it was. It was a really fun to audible journey to go on you and I will tell you what in terms of whether I am within a scale or not. I often ache for a key change because I feel like things get boring if that doesn't happen looking like this way to that needs to be lifted off my shoulders and the key changes the way to do it and honestly. I particularly for that. Very reason. Love Writing Bridges Bridges to the opportunity to jump out of what's already been established within the song and depending on how out there the bridge may be whether it's one or two sections. I always enjoy the challenge of finding a way to seamlessly. Bring it back so Sweet kind of suffering for example. I really go elsewhere on the bridge and finding a way to bring a back with so satisfying to me. It's probably a decent reason to one of my favorites stuff. Good good stuff all right. So now Onto the kind of the Marquis record here I know it kind of started off as a collection of e piece was that always the intent to then some them into a record or was the interesting thing you figure it out along the way. It was figured out along the way and so to be clear all the songs are written. I wrote a total of twenty songs actually whittled it down and presented itself based on the fact that most music is released Penalize would sing songs eat bees. I personally don't like EP. Because they kind of don't seem like complete idea or this fast released so this is the way of doing both where the album was written. The album was called heart. Mind Body and soul the title. Being four words lent itself to each word kind of being its own group. If you will and I then went about looking at the songs lyrically and musically and seeing which ones work together I thought one song would be a cop out to as a cop out three and four seemed like a great amount of material to keep the listener tight over from release to release though the thing that made all of this tick for me personally was the fact that when the last ep came out it would then be presented as one entire rather lengthy album of sixty? So you have the the sort of fragmented listening experience for peace and those have their own song sequence or you can sit down and really put the time for a re sequenced sixteen track album comprising the same song. So they're they're very different listening experiences but the idea of being able to do both is what made it appealing to me that that it's almost an experiment as well as a really switch. That's fun playing you know. We look massive. Bands can say hey bauer at but I feel like a band of my size. I can't necessarily afford to do that in the sense that one song we get swallowed up and I also don't think like I said once on so kind of want to make a little bit of a statement with every release and if you put out one song it doesn't really indicate what everything else sounds like if you put force on it at least indicates potential halves that the music takes so I was I was content with the idea very cool. All right. Is there anything you would like to add or remove from your wikipedia page? Probably all of it getting a key. Not fucking stand is the Was called is this Guinness Book Will Record Nonsense Oh for What stock or whatever you know. Maybe when I'm fifty goes a cool thing when I was eleven while I'm not saying it's not it's just you know literally twenty years later. Something of no significance to me. I just baffled against brought up now. Never Jazz GIG was in. It's one that I legitimately don't remember. I mean it's it's one imagine and and I'm I'm not trying to be self deprecating or overly modest but imagine imagine someone being like. Hey this thing you did when you were eleven that I find interesting. Tell me about it. It's like I have like three fuzzy mental images of that. And that's it and I suppose the thing that's annoying and is the complete antithesis of what you are. Interviewer are people who literally go to wikipedia. Come up with the same bullshit questions and ask me and I have to go. Oh my God are we talking about this again really again? Yeah not make it past paragraph one is bullshit eleven nine inch nails angels interweaves new regime. Cool Oh God I mean this is really a shining example of. Why media's just taking a dive that kind of lack of integrity and you know quality control so many things but as I was answering the thing. That actually irritates me. One of my friends was joking around and decided to change something in the first paragraph. I thought he was joking. An-and somebody interviewed me. And they're like what's this about you Adopting cats and I'm like what are you talking about right now? I mean now that was the most normal thing type is job. There were some other things that made zero sense whatsoever and semi vegan lifestyle an enormous carnivore and so on and so forth. And I was like you. Dick People actually read this shit in somebody asking had no idea what he's talking about until I realized that you are being funny asshole in this all this nonsense but yeah breakthough above and beyond those two things. I can't say I read media and actually now it's on there. I'm sure I would cringe if I alright. Well last question. Is there something that you wish people would ask you win interviews that they don't honestly know and I would find it weird if I or anybody who's being interviewed was saying God? I hope you asked this question. You know I mean I'm here to answer your questions in what you want to know not necessarily doing this or any other interview. Because I'm dying to tell you something you know what I mean so I'll have to think about it but nothing is coming to mind. I definitely have my. I hope he doesn't bring this up is I'm gonNA. I'm GonNa Sidestep that minefield but while I won't ask you that one. Whatever that may be but yeah I mean there are plenty of things through most people's histories where you kind of just WanNa brush them under the rug so to speak but Yeah four so that doesn't happen much either. With the exception of my notorious world record that dog for some reason I certainly don't but yeah like I said I really appreciate the level of research and your skills in interviewers. Thank you thank you so much for spending time with us. Can't wait to hear what you got coming next. Now's good man be safe. The songs Warranting will yeah Keep your has met suit zipped Do you need a hand sanitizer? And perhaps we'll speak again sometime. All right take care bye..

"That being said. Tom has a fairly fanatical or very fanatical fan base. So I didn't know what to expect but fortunately they tipped me very kindly and I had a fantastic time With my band and it was a very fun. Experience being able to gone on stage as a frontman play music. Then get off stage practically take off my jacket. Drink some water and get back on stage and play drums. And the the sort of looseness in comfort you gain from hitting the stage. A second time is incredible because usually you kind of have those in anxiety of some sort. Whether it's an excitement of not you know not wanting to contain yourself. Just get out there or a bit of nerves you know. Everyone handles differently. But for me I get Zayed's where I'm just like God. I just want to go out and play already though the hour before shows the worst part of my day. I can't stand it I if I had it my way. Somebody tapped me on the shoulder. Be like you gotta be onstage in two minutes in a boat shed get my Run stage that's great. 'cause there's no time to think about everything you know. I can't stand it but when you go on stage for second time you've already gone through that and you're just so comfortable ready to go so I had a great time on that tour. So do you think that's something you would consider doing again them I would. I don't think I would. Yeah okay good stuff all right. Let's take a look. So how were what was your involvement with paramore's self titled Plato Record? Well my involvement was purely that of a session drummer. I was called in my friend. Just Mel Johnson. Who I play tonight worth nine every concern. He called me into play The idea that I toured with them for a little bit was completely out of nowhere. We got so well and I had such a good time playing with those those guys and funny enough. This is the first the only time I've ever played with people who were either my age or younger. You can imagine nine inch nails angels now waves. Everyone is even growing up starting as a drummer and playing my brothers high school band. I was eight years younger so I've just always been used to being by far the youngest so that was my first experience kind of plans to build my own age a younger and we got along so well that it was a tricky time in the sense that I couldn't say that nine inch nails is going to be back up to tour because that was just secretive at the time but they had asked me if I was willing to tour and of course I was but I had to say. Look I have this commitment In May two thousand thirteen. I said I'd love to play with guys but I would imagine you would want a drummer to start and finish the Ron. It only makes no sense but that would be great but we would love for you to play this as long as you can and we'll just figure it out so I was really happy that That was their mindset and we did a little bit of touring. I wish it was more. I wish that the Two cycles didn't overlap is I've stated many times it was. It was a great time but yeah I did some festivals them in Australia. This shows Asia couple of one offs in Europe and the US and a couple of TV performances. So it was fun and it probably felt a little longer than it actually was just because the territories were so diverse but it was a great time and I had to go back to which was obviously a great time as well so that's pretty much it now. That's my involvement with the band. I mean I'm still loosely. In touch with them with the band in fact. I mean finding up. I never met their original drummer. Zak but US randomly at Home Depot. Couple of weeks ago something broke. I needed something. I'm seemingly handy. You might not but as looking for something and I see this. Guy Mike Akron paramore. What's was weird but I didn't. I didn't go up to him. Be like hey play drums. I play drums just weird but I thought it was a funny sort of Taylor Guitar Player. I'm like am I nuts or did I just passed by Drummer at Home Depot? He's gay lives out there now. Like small world out there. You know you run into a lot of people depot. Never know who rented never know who. Yeah ready to move Roger Manning a Beck's keyword player. There is fantastic. Gentlemen Michael Scholtz from fender. I mean Home Depot's happening spot if you're there at the right time. So can we change gears and ask a question specifically about about heart mind body and soul absolutely? You can always change years to talk about my music. That's all right so a love sorta laid out your feelings about how kind of useless the concept of genre is because this album doesn't fit properly and one Do you think of fair to say that this follows the decades long tradition of Pop music. I'm not talking about recent stuff where we were to simply music and it doesn't matter what the form of it is. Yeah that was awesome. So would it be fair to say that in the grander sense of things? It's pop music. That's just gotten fucked up in a fun way. I think a lot of it is like that you are able to throw the word pop in there because I think A modern listener. Whatever the hell that means to be like this isn't pop music but A lot of the greatest music of all time has been pop music. Unfortunately it's sort of water watered down term Genera but the band's also rock is. Well I mean I I if I had there and say I'm alternative rock. I would be somewhat with that. But it's a lazy stupid answer. You know there was a lazy genre when we first came up with the name. But it's not rock so it's alternative rock. What the hell was that Athletes Berry stupid? So yeah I mean that term works but I have a lot of pop influence a tremendously. I'm not saying pop in terms of beyond saying whatever else but in the grand tradition of Pop. I mean the present your arrangement. That's for that's for me. What actually makes it really elevated from the standard operatic stuff is just. How much thought went into the vocal arrangement in the harmony? And it's super obvious. It's very refreshing to hear somebody who's appreciated it in that Capacity so thank you but Yeah I really take pride in the versatility of the music so as being can be heavy. There'd be something equally as poppy or light or soft or aggressive. It's all over the place and because I find a lot of inspiration in sound that doesn't have to be confined to Guitar Bass Drums. I love playing the piano. I love electronic instruments synthesizers drum. I love it all and I really appreciate the the hybrid aspect of of combining things that being said. I try to make it work in a way that is somewhat Easy to detain as a listener. I mean something. That's always intriguing. Is that anything? That's truly great lives on many planes and has many layers to it so I started this this thing yesterday as long. Keep it up but the thing on Instagram Paul Song of the day. I mean while you're in quarantine you gotta figure out ways to fill your time and entertain people who can't go to your shows or or whatever I was just cancelled in Etiquettes. Great bit somebody bans doing creative things to keep their fans and followers online entertain but anyway. I came up with Song of the day where I just pick a favorite song of mine kind of analyze it and discuss what I find so interesting about it and the one I'm doing today I don't know when our podcast of of right now we'll be out but what are we looking at March twentieth so March Twenty Summit to be discussing today is GonNa Lena's of course it's a classic Beach Boys. Everybody knows the song but that song is the most perfect dichotomy of extremely complex and simple at the same time and it's something that a casual music listener can say. God I really liked the song and not really know anything about it. A. M. Where you tonight as musicians can really look at it as a as a incredible construction be like. How did he do that? Yeah and make it so listenable so a lot of the greatest things both complex sophisticated but catching simple all at the same time. The bills regret that and I don't really think they had anything quite as complex. You know which also made them probably even more potent because they were just that much yet. You're in across the board but I have taken that sort of train of thought into writing music especially with heart mind body and soul. You know I want something that has integrity in his creative and is pushing my limits. But I also don't want it to go over anybody's head you know. So how do I? How do I do both and that is something? I thought about a lot when writing these most recent songs end. You're doing something with so much of the structure of the songs does remind me of it so it just gets back with podcast. We went through the entirety of the nine Schnell discography. We're currently going through smashing pumpkins right. And it's something that they do that the Beatles did and so forth very judiciously. Do One weird thing at a time. Yes train all present in entrenched have specifically and. I'm not saying this. I'm saying this purely as a listener. Not As being friends with the guy or being in his band but I would venture to say that rhythm side eighty percent of it is weird but act that he has a very simple melody that is easy latch onto on top of all that weirdness yep is what makes it so unique in what has what has made it so unique from the beginning. You know. Weirdness knows no bounds and He's obviously got an immaculate since Rhythm Both as a player and as a programmer. So He's got the group there but then a on top of the groove is a bunch of odd texture in interesting belotti choices but the vocal melody is pretty simple. Most of the time. And I mean that in the most Complimentary way you know. So that's all those reasons. Add Up to a a tremendous career form so clearly. You know a thing or two about doing that yourself. I was going through and counting And I did end up losing count but it seems like on her mind body and soul. There may be only two or three songs that are not some sort of modified scale like. They're not unnatural minor or or natural major scales. It's like eighty percent of record so my question is the whole very impressed by this intrigue. So you're saying they're only a handful of songs that are not enormous scales. There's only a handful of songs that are in normal sales but I should say yes. My slipped on there. Because you're you're enduring and you're infringing dominant. You're all over the place and it's a lot of fun but my question is what did natural scale due to hurt you so The connection was kind of a bit in and out on the very last thing you said what was the question. The question is what did natural scales due to hurt you. Nothing the thing is is that As I stated the very beginning when I write songs I'm not thinking about anything. Theoretically it's got old just coming from experimenting where my hands have a land on the keys or on the board so on and so forth and if I were to stick to a scale it would perhaps sound a little too obvious and I'm not saying all songs. The six scale are obvious in like I said theory is not present so it's not like I thought I'm going to stay out of the confines of this and I'm going to push boundaries. It just happens to be where my taste is in what my ear funds interesting but I would love to ask you a question and you could give me some examples of fridge door and the things that you just said. I would love to hear where you found these facts. Gosh I mean is it. And they're taking off not I don't WanNa put you on the spot but I'm very intrigued and I'll often even when I'm writing something I go. Why is it like that? That's when I go. That's what I like. Okay.

"Through to your discography a couple times leading up to this. I definitely see how much de Lyrical Content. It does underscore the tone of the song. They're just very complete pieces of work. I think accents and I appreciate you doing such great research in really putting the time So do you have any particular song of yours that you could pinpoint as you say is being maybe a turning point for for your Solo career. Anything where you felt like. Wow this is occurring. Could be at any point You know I don't know why but the first song that comes to mind would be live in fear off of my second album but sh- Structurally very different. I think it's very dynamic. A Chord voicing that we talked so on and so forth It's not like the song single or anything like that. But there's something about being able to mix all of these influences dynamics and come up with something that really felt unique. Would sort of be summed up in that song at the time but everything. I do At the time I'm very proud of you know and I I always fulfill the vision of what I want the release to be and when I move onto the next thing. I don't really want to hear anything that's come up previous so it's tough. I mean certain things I guess the ones that are out there like Voices calling for example exhibit. Be something I'm very because I just let the sound take me. I wasn't GonNa try to put something like that in a box. In terms of what's structure going I just wrote music and I'm very content without game out sweet kind of suffering on heart mind body and soul. The latest is something that really sticks me now. Are these the catchy songs now? Are they singles Nell? But there's something about them. Artistically and creatively that. I'm very proud of what brings us down is another one that I'm very proud of off of Speaks of the white noise but everything everything proud of him while we're another and these are songs that like I said Kinda take you places. Every release I feel has something that sticks out to make for one reason or another but I wouldn't say there's a definitive turning point I mean about it but yeah living. Fear came to mind very nice all right so and now. I'm juggling windows bear with me here. We go so. Do you have any recommendations for somebody who would like to become a full time musician or songwriter? God I wish I did on. I'M NOT KIDDING. I mean the troublesome part is you said fulltime correct. Yeah it's difficult. You can imagine them dumb. I wish there was some sort of clear cut advice but at the same time. I don't really think there is for anything really you know Trying to approach this answer a little more positively. I mean just as with anything you want to be good at it. You want to know everything possibly can about whatever it is. You're pursuing so whether that means listening to a bunch of music analyzing the music that you like trying to write his Trying to write as much music as you possibly can and really putting in the time I mean does that to a career absolutely not because I'd say most successful people in popular music done what they're doing or these days require eight or nine people help write a song. That's just the climate where in these days and I. I do find it very unfortunate. I'm not talking about everybody by any means. I mean there are plenty of great people out there who are struggling for the same spots and I'm very fortunate to to be a drummer in in in larger bands in in use that to a lot of times my advantage in terms of the new regime but even as regime. I have an his songwriter. Have I'm jumping hurdles on a daily basis? You know and is and is proud of my music is I am. It's not like I've got a charting single. Or whatever so there are so many so many facets of what it takes something full-time whether we're talking about popularity whether we're talking about monetary success. I mean there certainly isn't any advice that could help facilitate those things. All I can say is just waiting. Als Be as good at it as you possibly. Can you know if you WANNA be a doctor? You'RE GONNA go through school if you wanna be a painter paint a lot. Maybe go to school while I don't know what their processes but you get what I'm saying and without kind of adding confusion to it. I'm not saying that you have to go to school by any means to be a successful musician. I I'd say that most of them aren't not educated properly of music but it always helps you know put in the effort. That's all I can really say. And dopey Dick Okay. So many opportunities come from relationships and relationships come from being a good dude. And if you're a dead closer probably GONNA fall through the cracks. You Know Oh there you go so real okay well so talking about the way that you supported yourself well Playing with other bands. And we ask you a little bit about some of those those experiences with nine snails and angels near waves all right Well how did you agit come to join the life lineup? Four nine inch nails. Who's back in two thousand eight a belief? Yes so I was playing at the reading Leeds Festival in two thousand seven in the Banos with the time which shall remain nameless was playing just before nine inch nails and a friend of mine who worked with the band for quite some time recommended to trend that he go watch me play into this damn baffled that he actually did but Trent Watch me play and it was probably about a year later that I read online. Josh phrase was leaving nine inch nails and before you knew it I received an email from transient has managed. Now's play are you interested in line drums and I said absolutely and we took it from. There is sent me a list of songs. I flew out to a soundcheck on the lights in the sky tour which was taking place then in late. Two thousand eight got the job so to speak and I've been with Eleven years now so righteous all right so today to your the the only drummer to be trusted with playing the perfect drug live curious. Does anything about how that conversation went down. I'll be very honest with you okay. Trent stated many times that he didn't really play the song live because didn't like the song that much now the preliminary rehearsals of that song whether they took place in late nineties thousands. I don't know maybe they didn't go well and that further sour taste in his mouth for the song. I don't know but as a drummer I always thought. It was totally doable. Y This isn't meant to buy. This can't go over well. Live for never pushed it because transparency comes up with the settlers. Iv My job and mess up but for the run that we did in two thousand eighteen. He wanted to throw some surprises out. In terms of touring especially since it was kind of divided up in legs and we were doing multiple shows per city. And when you do that you obviously want shows to be drastically different from one show to the next because you can imagine you have a lot of repeat customers is fans who are going to all nights so we had some tricks up the sleeve in. That was one of them. I if I'm not mistaken I think the first time we played it was at red rocks in Colorado and Just when those kind of like unfettered string instrument sliding tunnel people lost their mind awesome. But will we try with this lineup? At rehearsals it worked quite well and you know whether he loves the song or not. I thought you know what we're doing. The Song Justice and I think people will enjoy it so the funny thing to me. Is that for whatever reason the drums always been the ought to got to find somebody? Play it you know. And I don't know why that was ever such a big issue to be honest with you. I mean they're just they're just aggressive funky drums. It's basically what's going on. The Amen break is in there almost and I never saw. That was an issue. The thing that I found funny and I suppose the thing that a lot of people don't realize that wouldn't you have programmed programmed. Drums are heavily sequenced music. It's not about replicating things note for note. It's about making them come alive with acoustic drums. Sat there thinking okay. I need every little individual note and dynamic and I need to play like machine is on so forth. That's not the point. The point is bringing across the energy. That's recording now when it comes to that signature drum brake towards the end after the whole nose section that I played note for note every night but everything else is. Pretty much improvised within the confines. Of what we're trying to achieve but what I found various is that once the bones of the song were were well rehearsed amongst the ban. Tren always likes to kind of throw. It will just a little bit more into the pot respect. You can do a falsetto part in the in the versus Wanda Durham stuff. You think you can do the Double Robin on the vocal in the pre chorus. Okay we're done with the song. Was He finished that break? And you go over to the piano and play this melody and I love that. Keeps things so exciting album was funny as that. But the time that the The the drummer was able to play the song. It was the drummer in sings. Backup cements playing Sabino and he's always keep putting so's is great. I love it. Let has been a tremendous experience. So change gears here. How did you come district lane drums? Rangel's near with that is a little bit hazier even though it's slightly more recent suppose long story short that serve when Atom Willard who was. The original drummer was no longer with the band for whatever reason that was. Tom and I had a mutual friend. Who recommended me and I was off the road. Nine inch nails that was doing menu regime staff and we had a phone conversation and I thought it'd be fun. I mean this is the first time I would have been in a band from San Diego and many years and we got along. Well I got along very well with the other guys in the band and Kinda. Just take it from there. Although in hindsight it's very odd because we hardly toured when I first joined the band the band pretty much fell apart in Tom Aside. He didn't WanNa Tori more for whatever reason and that's why there was a sort of seven year hiatus between the tour this winter whatever was towards the end of the year last year and two thousand twelve. Maybe it was time the neighborhood. I don't think it was a definitive. I'm not touring anymore. But he added the demos about seven years and that meant that the working partnership was more of a recording thing but really that kind of culminated in the Dream Walker which came out in two thousand fourteen and that was written whenever him and myself happen to be in San Diego because he was still with blink and I was nine inch nails. So we'd kind of have to find those pockets of time to work in that you know. Honestly everything posting walker up until The tour of September last year is a real blur in a haze. Because we didn't do much work in. I played drums on stuff but really that was him just kind of. Hey I'm GONNA put out an EP. That's four songs. And that's that you know and I was are very busy with a lot of other things in the new regime. Touring other sessions here and there. And it's a very the reason why I suppose it. So hazy. In terms of the the chronology is because he does so many different things that have nothing to do with music as well that the the gaps in time can be quite lengthy so it's very easy to sort of mentally check out especially when I have so many things of my own that are working on or have worked on you know so so yeah that then answers that questionably. Yeah so Coming off that that you just did with them. You are also playing as the opening act on. That tour man said that the appropriate nomenclature. I don't be in scum now that was with with humor of course but So this was a three three band bill so the opening verse support is just before the headliner and the Hedera. The I was playing second of three and third of three and it was an amazing time. I was very fortunate and pleasantly surprised that the angels Nadia's angels audience. You know. I was very fortunate that they were very accepting of my music and myself because the name sounds nothing like angels and airwaves. You could not find will song. That is reminiscent of angels.

"Course they take. But I've always found the idea that you have to have. Your one sound is completely idiotic. Well I mean it's a. It's constrictive like it's suffocating. From a creative standpoint yeah. I mean I'm not I'm certainly not comparing myself but you know the most legendary evolution I I would say is is the Beatles given the the the spam but imagine if Brian Epstein was like is please please me was exceptional in. You guys need to just do that forever. And in a break up in nineteen seventy doing twist and shout in chains in this just like that. W- it's ridiculous and I don't know if you'll have more of a short term. Let's see what we can do with this and cash out as soon as possible. Sort of mentality. I have no idea but I think anything that's great has to change because you're always exploring and searching for something and you will cease to do that if you're just trying to repeat yourself. There's I gotTa tell you you just answered like three of my pre written questions on your own with no prompting. They're on the same page. Hell yeah part part in my my quarantine facial hair. I mean. This is not a look that cultivating just outta razors a now. When I looked at the Google hanging out with this that hush it and had to be exposed here letting zone difficult. It's the Corinthian Corentin fashion zone. Let's roll so was the what was the inspiration or like impetus for starting new regime in the first place was. Was it mainly because you had these collection of songs that you wanted to start putting out or was it more about having the project Neither actually awesome. I okay so backing up people bit. I started playing drums at seven and a half eight years old. Having the two older brothers we discussed earlier they moved onto guitar and Bass and I had access to those instruments in the same obsessed. The same obsession would kinda take over me when I learned something on it. If I learned a riff on guitar I couldn't put the thing down. And then that became a what else can learn guitar or learn scale littler lead so that same craving of knowledge in needing to get better would take over me on every instrument played so by the time I was eighteen. I found myself to be a speak. Frankly of very good guitar player. Pianos Racist Drummer so and so forth and I thought well what is the point of being able to do all of this. If I can't sing that's the most important thing you want to write music so honestly force myself and I suppose. The impetus was extreme frustration. Having been the drummer in bands where depending on what your method of recording as I mean more often than not the drummer's the first one in and out of the studio and then I'd have to spend your time waiting for everybody else to finish. You have to wait for mixing up to wait for mastering before shows get booked in from the time. I would record drum tracks in anticipate the following tour. It could have been eight months. It could have been a year and I would see people in their way of recording and honestly irritatingly think to myself. I could do this so much faster. I don't want to wait for these guys. This is bullshit right and so that in the realization that I needed sane to truly take my destiny into my own hands. You know lack of less pretentious for his I A. I forced myself to do it. Came with the new regime and once I wrote my first song which is a song called some things which is on my first album coup. I thought I can do this. And I'm going to. An coup is actually the first ten songs I've ever written out the songwriting. Journeys is very well documented in terms of the new regime discography. I I'm sitting sitting here. Also as a multi instrumentalist songwriter singer. Being annoyed by how good the first album is knowing how early that time line but thank you very much. I appreciate that. Yeah so funny enough. The last on the album was the first time I ever wrote in the in the first song on the almost the second one I ever wrote. So there's a lot of piano based music on there and in the piano is a common thread throughout the new game I suppose the amount of PNL input or output kind of diminished from release to release. But really since I put out my most recent album. I've got this New Beautiful Role In digital upright and I haven't been able to start writing songs on it. So who knows what next album going to be but there you have. It was just got got along in an unforeseeable amount of time on my hands. Apparently yeah well definitely want to get into the kind of the current situation eventually but I want to ask you the obnoxious question. How many instruments do you actually play? Are We counting? Vogel's yeah absolutely okay. Well I would say five well five. Well that's the name is basically comprised of now look. I've dabbled with plenty of other things that have made under recordings. But am I gonNA call myself a ukulele player or a cellist or a glacken spiel player. No but that you possess quite a few instruments and funny enough I Put It in order for the clarinet the other day. I don't know what his deal in the morning house. Like you know what I don't wind instrument and I think that's a good one to start on side by bought one and should be here today. Now unless unless somebody turns over the delivery truck looking for toilet paper and hand. Sanitizer should be here soon. Okay so would you say now obviously singing sort of the vehicle to get to again? Get you in control of your own sort of songwriting journey here but in terms of instruments other than vocals. Would you say that you have one? That's a favorite. I I don't and I truly mean that in really the reason is that every instrument shines in its own way you know nothing can duplicate rhythm and energy the way a drum set can nothing can cover as much musical ground at one time as a piano can so for that very reason. I will wholeheartedly say in believe that. The Piano is the greatest instrument of all time. I mean it's no no secret that almost every I mean. I can't think of a composer great composer whose main instrument was not the piano. I'm not saying everybody Ozo- but It just makes the most sense and when I started plying remember one of my friends in high school was dad was a pianist. Was like you know when it comes to theory. It's all laid out there black and white and Toyota but literally so I was brilliant. But yeah you you. Won't I mean it makes you look at it music differently and are aged player? Have it and just the most minute amount of piano knowledge could open up the guitar in so many ways to two different versions to planning voices of cords that have either the third the fifth on the on the bottom as opposed to just route notes and bar codes and all that stuff and we are? And it just really makes you look at things differently. I mean the piano. The one thing that is frustrating about the piano and his excellent about the panels that there's no one shape that really takes place across the keyboard. I mean the reason why people are able to get away with being self taught as a guitar player or a Bass player is because you can take your one shape. Move it anywhere on the neck and it's going to do its job. You know you don't have to know which notes you're applying. What intervals you're lying. You can look at it as a series of DOS space is. Here's my Barkor and if I left my finger up now it's a minor chord. You know something like that. That was work with Youth. You're gonNA take something from one key to another. You have to know how to do that or it's not going to work. Yeah there's nothing more instructive than just the simple linear layout of a piano if you want to understand music and it's where you go exactly but the fact that you can take the same position of a major scale on a fret board in just moving nap step at a time. You can't do that on a piano. You have to learn it very often a different fingering pattern in. That's both hands so it's it's far more of a IT'S A. It's a far deeper instrument. Roy Really I'm not saying I mean there are incredible guitars out there who make all of those realizations on the guitar. But I just think you know there's no way around it on the piano. You have to know the way. Music is sort of designed. I guess another way it works and functions so I think the greatest but You know playing a riff on a guitar. You can't touch that feeling either you know especially with the The various sounds come up with. I mean that's what I love about. Guitar have a different set of pickups different amp different style guitar brand different pedals. It'll make you play differently. It in all spark a different Feeling of creativity. And you don't really get that on drums. You know it's just everything has its strong suits sort of you know deficiencies if you will deficits so love how how thorough and earnest that ants was makes me so happy and I could not agree more but okay songwriting process. Do you have a defined one or do you go in lyrics I music I or is it however strikes you at the time however it strikes me although lyrics last almost ninety nine percent of the time just because I approach everything musically so The best case scenario for me is when I'm doing the music and the lyrics at the same time. Sometimes both ideas are in sync with each other and the song sort of rights itself but usually what sparks an idea or the planting the seed to start night at to finish? The song is me sitting at the piano or guitar. Excuse me messing around in pro tools in all of that comes from a musical place. You know it's not like I'm just sitting there doodling lyrics in one. I now I have the song you know. That's that's not where I come from but I totally respect and appreciate those who sort of write lyrics without having any sort of melody in mind right music and then find a way where they meet. I think sting writes that way or at least wrote that way. I'm an enormous police fan and I think that's the way that he tackled it in. That's great you know but in terms of the spark of inspiration that really comes from sound for me awesome awesome. I definitely again in listening.

"Hello and welcome to a very special episode of discography. There's we were lucky enough to interview Ilan Rubin. He's at a story career working with nine inch nails angels and airwaves paramore and others and most recently his solo band. The new regime put out a full length record called heart mind body and soul. I had a wonderful time talking with him. So please enjoy the interview. Well Hello John Bolger to meet Ya Committee as well so We laid to go and get right down to the bad. You know with really hard hitting questions the first one is. How do you get your hair to do that? Well I sleep a lot and the technique. I used to roll out of bed when I finally decide to wake. Up is really where this all comes from. That is absolutely wonderful. All right now on the more serious stuff Clearly have been to music for quite some time. Are You schooled in music? Theory or Are these kind of bold cord choices on conventional scales that you use so often something you figure it out by ear. both I have to say I I educated myself musically in terms of theory and harmony and all that fun stuff I always enjoy didn't have always been a very good self learner in terms of buying a ton of books and absorbing the information however I do not use any of it to approach writing music to be honest with you I mean I think the thing about having a knowledge of theory is that it helps you analyse music things that you actually figure out what it is about music that that makes it tick for you. You know more if I run into a corner where I'm like I actually don't know where to go here. Purely based on instinct. What are my options? Then you're able to kind of see what pads open up via theory and harmony as well. I can't stand people who are mediocre songwriters. Think that having an ounce of music knowledge is GONNA hinder their precious creativity. Just another tool in your belt. I've I've gone the rant on the podcast. A Million Times saying music theory is not prescriptive descriptive. It's a it's a it's just helps you understand what's happening that's it it's not rules. It's literally like people sitting. I WanNa be a great writer except I don't know grammar is very similar to that can be. You can be a skilled conversationalist but if you can't spell a word you're GonNa look pretty stupid you know but whenever well let's Let's see here. Looks like your brother is also musician so playing music. A big part of your your child together. Yes the reason why I didn't have one. I'm totally kidding. I had I wasn't one of those funds. I did start music very on about seven and a half eight years old started playing drums. I have two older. Brothers my oldest. Who has the one you are? Mentioning at imagine is my manager. It has been may as each plant band together all three. There's actually and for quite some time by brothers plumbing base erosion live so we're cream late and a tight family unit but yeah I mean. They dabbled in music before I did considering. They're five and eight years old and I am sure enough. Yeah does that make you the baby of the family then baby in the best massery right on the same boat? Yeah all right so clearly you have a Lotta musical influences and a lot of them come out. And they're kind of all over the place. Can you talk to me about maybe two real obvious influences and maybe a couple that are more obscure that people would have to go digging for lots? It's a good way of phrasing this question because I don't know if you know anything about me but anytime I talk about influences or discuss what I like. I immediately started gushing about the same three people you know. I mean I have I have or more than that but in terms of the stuff that really hits me consistently. I don't know if you pick it up based on the music solely but Perhaps a tinge here that I mean my favorite of all time without a doubt is led Zeppelin surprise surprise one so forth. Now you may catch moments of those things that present themselves in the music but by no means. Would you listened to the new regime? Be like this leads up fanatic. I'm not in dragon pants or have my chest out on stage or anything you know. Whatever but I'm saying So those are personally my biggest influences and you may find bits and pieces than here and there but that maybe a little less obvious I'm a massive Jeff Buckley Fan and I've I've learned quite a few of my chord voicing learning some of his songs so all of that stuff kind of makes its way in there at some point or other but but really. I always try to keep everything versatile in different from anything that I've done. So I suppose that you know announce Buckley here's up Lemaire radiohead. They're a little bit of harmony. That have picked up from. Who knows Beethoven Schubert? I'm not trying to sound pretentious literally. This is how diverse my my influences are and they all find a way to Help make up would it? I am a songwriter. We noticed just how many different angles pop in you know The I'm hearing bits Bowie McQueen again. Bits of just a more classical runs on the actual instrumental melodies and whatnot. It's been really interesting. Going through your your entire discography over the time preparing for this and just kind of listening to wow. This really does go everywhere. It's unique thing. I'm glad he picked up on that. Thank you it's really funny because when I first started regime. It's been an oddly long while although it doesn't feel that way because of the various other things that have taken years of my time or that I devoted years of time too but when I first started the new regime and writing my own songs from the very onset I said to myself. I'm going to write every song drastically different from because whoever becomes a fan of the band or me as a songwriter. I want them to constantly anticipate something. New are banned. Who HAVE THEIR SOUND. And it's the same whether it's album Zombie five. And Hey if you like that then great but everything that I've loved his had very definitive evolution and early on a lot of people whether be labels or publishers. Whatever had a really hard time putting me in a box which is stupid. I think it's very intuitive. And would is this. Are you a rock band or use it? More pop is immoral. What what are you like? Who gives a shit? It's good and listen to it you know. And what's funny? Is that you you fast forward. However many years later and I keep reading articles about our genres dying because so many things are crossing from alternative pop or obviously hip hop country. All these sorts of mutations of music are finding their way to the most popular outlets and you now find people saying that that genres stupid really to really have to define something by what categories in so. It's funny to see where things kind of go in. The.
