Today’s Guest: Josh Flagg, rock star, “Devastate Me”
Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of family members who are contractually obligated to be here and clap politely until the end… in the new new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
He started as a mandolin player. In Philadelphia.
Tell me that wasn’t devastating for a 13-year-old kid! Thanks, Dad!
But there’s no sign it left a lasting scar on the musical inclinations of Josh Flagg, who just released his debut album, Devastate Me. It’s got a modern, power pop sound that should easily catch on with a big crowd.
JOSH FLAGG podcast excerpt: “‘Devastate Me’ was one of the first songs that got written for this record. As it developed, a lot of songs ended up having themes of destruction, big and small, personal and impersonal.”
If you haven’t heard Flagg yet, the show starts with a song off “Devastate Me” called “Seeing Red”; later in the show, Flagg offers an exclusive, live acoustic version of the title track, “Devastate Me,” performed in his home studio!
