The Musical Journey of Raquel Aurilia

The best way to embark on any creative journey is often to pick a direction and just start. From there, the people you meet and experiences you share will light the way.

This is the case for adult contemporary artist Raquel Aurilia. The Arizona-based singer’s journey began by building her network, which has since led her to open for the likes of B.B. King, Pat Benatar, Gin Blossoms, and more, including a recent 25-show run in support of former Bad English frontman John Waite.

“I started later in life because I didn’t know how to start,” Aurilia noted. “Music is a different animal. It took me a while to meet the right people.”

That includes courting controversy, which he does fearlessly on his new single, “Thug.”

Darrin Bradbury is a world-aware folk troubadour whose writing style points out the mundane occurrences of everyday life with wry wit and, at times, dark humor. This is prevalent on his new album, Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs, which was released on Anti Records on Sept. 20, 2019.

Darrin joins The Quinn Spinn today, and we talk about the album and much more — including authenticity, society, and technology’s impact on what it means to be human in the 21st Century.

Brandon Calano: Finding New Life and ‘Becoming Young’

The events that occur in our lives can inspire us to great changes. Just the same, the people we meet can blow us wide open, help us to unlock new perspectives, and lead us to find our voice.

In the case of Brandon Calano, the recent Nashville transplant’s journey from his native Boulder, Colorado – and the mixed bag that comes with wholesale personal transformation – is reflected in the evolution of his musical project, Becoming Young.
