In this Together

An interview with Mike Maimone of Mutts

Out singer/songwriter Mike Maimone, lead singer of the band Mutts, sounds like the long-lost son of Tom Waits. There might be no higher compliment than that. Like Waits, Maimone is a pianist, who began playing in his youth. Following a high school jock period and thoughts of playing football at Notre Dame, where he received a degree in accounting, but “wasn’t big enough or fast enough” to play, Maimone returned to music. A win-win situation if there ever was one. With his marvelous band Mutts, as well as time as a solo performer and a guest musician in other bands, Maimone has honed his skills and become a spellbing artist. On the Mutts’ new EP Stick Together (, Maimone and band-mates Bob Buckstaff and Chris Pagnani, continue to expand their musical palette, while giving listeners a lot to think about in songs such as “Neighbor” and “Tin Foil Hat.” I had the pleasure of speaking with Mike in 2017.

Goodnight and Good Luck

An interview with Nicole Atkins

Already considered to be one of the best albums of 2017, Goodnight Rhonda Lee (Single Lock), the fourth full-length disc by Nicole Atkins, deserves all of the praise being heaped upon it. The 11 stellar tunes further Atkins’s singular exploration of vintage pop in the most exhilarating way, as you can hear on the title track, “Sleepwalking,” “A Little Crazy,” “If I Could,” “Listen Up,” and “Brokedown Luck.” Also of note is the way that the album addresses the singer/songwriter’s newfound sobriety, on songs including the aforementioned titular number. I had the pleasure of interviewing Atkins about the disc in 2017.

Magic Michael

An interview with The Carbonaro Effect’s Michael Carbonaro

With his mesmerizing and hilarious hidden camera and practical joke series The Carbonaro Effect, now in its third season on truTV, out actor and illusionist Michael Carbonaro keeps viewers (and his unwitting subjects) guessing. A whiz of a wizard, if ever there was, Carbonaro first crossed our gaydar as sex-obsessed Andy in the 2006 rom-com Another Gay Movie. But his greatest success and exposure has occurred through his longtime love of the magical arts on The Carbonaro Effect. Carbonaro is currently on a cross-country live performance tour bringing his effect to your part of the world.
