I’m six feet across the table in the Artichoke Cafe from composer, producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, mentor and scenemaker…the man who introduced the Dookie Jam to Portland and who has just finished a run of releasing twenty songs in twenty consecutive weeks with “What Is Love” Featuring Rain Ezra… I’m talking about Tony Ozier…that tall, lean gentleman who has been an important part of music in Oregon for over a decade.It's people like Tony who have managed to keep busy even though live performances are off the table for the foreseeable future.Let’s find out how he does it.
He's simply one of the best musicians I've met. A great song writer, musician, producer, engineer...and a solid dude. It's a conversation I've wanted to have on the podcast for a while. When you hear his sound on record, it's recognizable for sure. His releases include Keep The Funk Alive, Beats Galore Vol.1 & Vol.2, and the Tone Tuesdays series. We talk about all that, the Dookie Jam and so much. Peep the latest episode of the Klyph Notes podcast with my guest Tony Ozier. Klyph Notes is supported by Akepele Apparel and XRAY FM The theme for Klyph Notes was produced by Theory Hazit The intro for Klyph Notes was produced by DJ Klyph
