Chart-Topping Book 'The Singers Talk' by Jason Thomas Gordon Now a Podcast Featuring Interviews with Thom Yorke, Norah Jones, Roger Daltrey, and More

Produced in partnership with Double Elvis Productions and Volume.com, the new podcast series is a collection of interviews with some of the greatest singers of our time.

(Nashville, Tennessee – May 2, 2024)  The highly acclaimed book “The Singers Talk” by Jason Thomas Gordon, which topped the charts globally, has evolved into an engaging podcast series. Produced in collaboration with Double Elvis Productions and Volume.com, this podcast delves into intimate conversations with some of the most iconic voices in the music industry.

 

“The Singers Talk” podcast celebrates the raw passion and dedication of artists who step up to the microphone, pouring their hearts into every note. Sometimes it’s bloody, and sometimes it’s bloody hilarious. 

 

Season One of “The Singers Talk” features exclusive interviews with legendary vocalists like Thom Yorke, Roger Daltrey, Norah Jones, Bryan Adams, Emmylou Harris, Geddy Lee, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Joe Elliott, Simon Le Bon, Patty Griffin, Jim James, Michael McDonald, Belinda Carlisle, Chris Robinson, and John Lydon, among others. Additionally, listeners can look forward to special features, including Wendy Melvoin’s reflections on Prince, Tom Morello’s tribute to Chris Cornell, Peter Albin’s insights on Janis Joplin, and more.

 

As the singer/drummer of the LA rock band Kingsize, Jason Thomas Gordon searched for answers regarding how singers survive on the road. “It’s a really brutal job, and I couldn’t believe there was no resource to find out how people like Springsteen do this night after night,” says Gordon, “So, I decided to do something about it and wrote The Singers Talk.”

 

Released by Permuted Press last September, the book features interviews with over 70 prominent vocalists, offering a rare glimpse into their experiences and perspectives on their craft. Notably, as the grandson of Danny Thomas, the founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Jason Thomas Gordon directs all proceeds from book sales to support the Music Gives to St. Jude Kids campaign, benefiting children and families undergoing treatment at St. Jude.

 

Since the book’s release, “The Singers Talk” has charted in the top five in various countries. The new podcast can be found at Volume.com/TheSingersTalk and everywhere you get your podcasts.
