You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we have Stitch Early. One of the few truly good people you could ever meet in this sad life, we have a long history with Stitch, from covering his stint at South By Southwest two years ago, to reviewing his records, to booking him at the third Frederick Music Showcase. On this episode, he performs a new tune, “Gorilla Baboon Funk,” with a pretty killer band of two — keys and drums. And of all the interviews we’ve produced for Frederick One Take, this ought to be the one you give a chance as not only do we sit down with Stitch and his band, but also his family.
