Published: Jul 13 2021

For today's episode we have a return guest, Mr. Derek Evry. Derek is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has gone on to front several successful rock bands in the D.C. area (1999-2006) before briefly attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA (2006) and returning to D.C. to work on his own music.

For our conversation today, we will be placing our focus on American musician Mark Mulcahy and his 2019 solo record titled The Gus. For those unfamiliar, he is the front man for the New Haven, CT based band Miracle Legion. He He later formed Polaris: a house band for the mid-1990s alternative TV series The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

To quote our guest verbatim about The Gus, “Each song on this album is a double sided coin of both joy and pain. It's the perfect record for almost every occasion. Mark, being an already very accomplished songwriter, really takes this one to a personal yet eccentric place. Do not skip this album." Enjoy!
