Phatz & Hall - James Hall

Wine Soundtrack - USA

The seeds for Patz & Hall were planted in the 1980s when assistant winemaker James Hall and national sales manager Donald Patz struck up a close friendship while working together at Flora Springs Winery and Vineyards. The two discovered a mutual enthusiasm for a rich and compelling style of wine made by applying traditional winemaking techniques to fruit from elite, small vineyards. Inspired to combine their winemaking and sales talents, James and Donald joined with partners Anne Moses and Heather Patz, to establish Patz & Hall. Together, they turned Patz & Hall into one of California’s most highly regarded wineries with a celebrated portfolio of single-vineyard wines. To achieve their goal of making exceptional limited-production wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the four founders each focused their specialized knowledge and expertise on different areas of the winery’s operations. This integrated approach, along with a commitment to developing close personal relationships with many of California’s finest growers—people like Larry Hyde, Lee Hudson and the Martinelli and Pisoni families—became the cornerstones of the winery’s success.

Performance Anxiety: Lynn Wright (And The Wiremen, James Hall)

Pantheon - Home of Music Podcasts

Back in the 90’s, I discovered this great band led by James Hall. They were the opener for Maria McKee and I was a fan from the first note. The band’s guitarist was Lynn Wright. But after two albums, they were done; and in the pre internet days, it wasn’t so easy to stay on top of your favorite artists, especially if they hadn’t quite broken into the mainstream. So I’m beyond happy to have Lynn on the podcast. To begin with, I try to sell him a farfisa organ after he just got home from a flight from Berlin. From there we talk about his musical career and his ever changing sound and style. He’s very open about how the music industry almost broke him. He took a break from it after leaving James Hall to work for a children’s book publisher. But a stint with the Reverend Vince Anderson brought back Lynn’s love of music. Since then he’s written his own music, recorded in a myriad of styles, including musique concrete. He has a lot of music he’s preparing to release, even though COVID has been particularly harsh for him. Check out lynnwrightcomposer.com for new releases and info on where to see him play live. He’s currently playing with The Royal Arctic Institute among other things. Follow Lynn on Instagram @lynnwr_ght. Follow us @PerformanceAnx on social media. You can always help us out by going to ko-fi.com/performanceanxiety or performanceanx.threadless.com. So get a drink and some snacks and get ready to hear some great stories and wonderful music with Lynn Wright on Performance Anxiety on the Pantheon Podcast Network.

Performance Anxiety: James Hall

Pantheon - Home of Music Podcasts

This week we take a deep dive with James Hall. We hit on a lot of topics and a lot of bands like Mary My Hope, The James Hall Band, The Futura Bold, The Steady Wicked, and The Ladies Of. As always, we find out how he got his start in the music business. But we also find out a lot more. Like how the record labels had a hard time figuring out what to do with him and his band, placing them on tours with bands as diverse as Maria McKee followed immediately by Rage Against The Machine. But matches like those helped him look at music in a different way. Both Hurricane Katrina and starting a family had profound effects on James and his music. He’s grateful for everything that’s happened; good, bad, and otherwise. He’s discovered an interesting outlet for his music in yoga classes. And while James admits to never having sold insurance, he does do work for Books For Africa. Check out jameshall.com for music and links to his social accounts. Follow us @PerformanceAnx.

Performance Anxiety: Grant Curry (Flood Twin, James Hall)

Pantheon - Home of Music Podcasts

Flood Twin’s Grant Curry joins me on this episode. His road to music was neither direct nor easy. He was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8. By the age of 14 he was already in a drug treatment center. After going through rehab, he has stayed clean and even became a counselor. But music was always in the back of his mind, calling him. When the opportunity to take time off of work and play, he took it and never looked back. He met James Hall and created four incredible albums with James Hall & Pleasure Club. But after Hurricane Katrina uprooted his life in Louisiana, Grant relocated to Georgia and eventually formed his new band, Flood Twin. The band is releasing their debut album and it’s a beast! Not only is the music minimalist and powerful, but so is the artwork, which was also done by Grant. Follow the band @floodtwin. You can buy the album on Bandcamp or stream it everywhere. Follow us @PerformanceAnx on the socials. Feed us coffee at ko-fi.com/performanceanxiety. Buy things at performanceanx.threadless.com.
