Episode 149: Anton Barbeau

Today I’m chatting with musician Anton Barbeau for Episode 149. In addition to his own music, he worked with Allyson Seconds on her recent solo album (Episode 127).

Anton and I chat about the bevy of rock stars that live in Nevada City, like Jonathan Richmond; playing The Cattle Club with his old band Anton Barbeau and The Joy Boys with the likes of a sweater-wearing band; how a childhood fascination with magic blossomed into a career in showmanship; the process artists and musicians go through for creation; the love of sound and finding the structure for it; how the Stairway to Stardom through Skip’s Music helped him grow as a musician; why owning drumsticks does not a drummer make; and why physical forms of music are just as important as the music itself.
