SMI Radio Ep. 38 On Demand: Perry Acker / Matt Brown

Last week’s show is now available for on demand listening or download…

On Saturday, October 22nd, I made my way down to “The 253” to cover a band that I got turned on to in the summer of 2010… Gig Harbor’s Perry Acker.

After the release of a stellar 5 song EP their long awaited album is now complete and was released  to the world at the Rialto Theater  at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in T-Town. The boys and their fans celebrated the release of that new disc.

Here is my recap of the show featuring some stellar photos from Mocha Charlie on

Before the band took the stage I  spoke with the band prior to their record release show. We spoke about the making of the record, what it was like to work with 7 time Grammy winner, Don Was and they shared with me an interesting story about Was and The B-52’s.

Also featured are selected cuts from their new record, Path to Freedom which is available on CD Baby and iTunes.

In the second half of the show, I speak with Portland artist, Matt Brown, Matt was the opening act for Perry Acker.
