South east Pennsylvania represent! "Tyrant Taylor" Galassi and "Saddle Sarah" Shown join the story to tell us how their band This Way To The Egress is a shining example of what a D.I.Y. band is capable of. They are coming hot off the heels of a successful kickstarter campaign for their new album "The Great Balancing Act" which they recorded in Brooklyn with legendary producer Roger Greenawalt. Now they're getting ready to leave for a independently scheduled month long tour. These Egress kids are BUSY...this is their art and it is DANGEROUS! There is a lot of solid advice about independent publishing and licensing in here too. They were nice enough to let us have the song "What Do Ya Want" as an exclusive that they won't be releasing anywhere else before the album (...ahem...) DROPS. There is a little discussion at the end about the Foo Fighters "Sonic Highway" series and some bitchin' about Record Store Day...just reporting.
