Backstage with J. M. Gerraughty

J. M. Gerraughty quickly became one of The Composer Chronicles’ closest friends after his episode (Ep. 34) aired in January 2021. After sharing his joy for being on the podcast with the Twitter-verse, he sparked some excitement within the composer community, giving The Composer Chronicles an opportunity to flourish into the platform that it is now. On this episode of the “Backstage” series of Unscripted, we catch up with him and talk about… whatever we want!

Ep. 56: Juan Pablo Contreras

In order for you to be successful, all you have to do is be proud of what you put into your craft. This is one of the great pieces of advice that composer Juan Pablo Contreras lives by every day writing music. Juan Pablo is a Latin Grammy-nominated composer and Universal Music recording artist who has combined his love of Western classical music and Mexican folk music to formulate his own unique style of writing.

Ep. 55: Alan Theisen

The world of music doesn’t always have to be black and white. Genres of music don’t always have to remain individualized and separate, and composers are not required to stick to writing a specific genre of music. Alan Theisen, a composer, saxophonist, author, and educator, is a man who appreciates all types of music and uses his background to meld genres of music that would often never be considered together, encouraging the new music community to be the best it can be.
