We're not quite sure how Joe Bagale keeps up with all the music he's created or been part of performing or recording. In this podcast, he takes us through his journey after arriving in San Francisco back in 2003. It involves several living situations with in-house studios, his first visit to the Boom Boom Room, a serendipitous date, playing and touring with Mickey Hart, joining Jazz Mafia, and eventually, creating his alter ego--Otis McDonald. Otis's music has been in this podcast since we launched two years ago.
Look for Joe's new record, People Music, coming out this fall.
And if you missed Part 1, please go back and listen to see the unusual way that Joe made the move to San Francisco.
We recorded this podcast in Studio D at Hyde Street Studios in June 2019.
