The latest Authentic Audio episode features a conversation with musician Joey Sprinkles.
This is an episode for musicians, music lovers & music nerds.
Joe Boyer, a.k.a. Joey Sprinkles, is a dynamic musician, songwriter and experimental punk-pop artist. Several months ago we sat down, drank some coffee and had a conversation about his love of music, his passion for punk rock and his deeper mission with music and as he tours the country as a solo-artist.
Joe, who has played in local bands based in Cleveland for over a decade, was most notably the former guitarist for the Cloud Nothings. Now, as Joey Sprinkles, he’s in the midst of a new tour and will be releasing a new album called 7” on September 29th.
This album is filled with soulful punk-pop gems and you’ll actually get a chance to listen to a couple of songs from the album during the duration of this podcast.
