Two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning guitarist/producer Eric Krasno has announced next week’s launch of a special new podcast series. Presented by Osiris Media, ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE will see the renowned musician hosting a one-of-a-kind interview series exploring the lives and work of some of his closest friends and musical collaborators.
ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE debuts today, Monday, April 20, with a pair of extraordinary episodes featuring two equally incredible artists, starting with Dave Matthews (Episode 1) and Khruangbin founder/bassist Laura Lee (Episode 2). Additional episodes will follow each and every Monday featuring an array of very special guests, including Phil Lesh, John Mayer, Derek Trucks, Don Was, Marcus King, Questlove, Chris Robinson, John Scofield, Emily King, and many more. ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE is available via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and through the official Osiris website.
“One of my favorite things about being a touring musician is meeting other artists I admire, and the relationships we build through the years,” says Krasno. “I’ve been able to meet many of my heroes and watched young musicians become legends in their own right. The one constant I’ve found is that they all have a unique and interesting story to tell. ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE gives me the opportunity to record some of these conversations and invite you into the room with us.”
For nearly two decades, Krasno has been an omnipresent figure in popular music, from his virtuosic, innovative guitar playing with Soulive and Lettuce (both of which he co-founded) to his GRAMMY® Award-winning work as a producer and songwriter for artists like Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, 50 Cent, Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville, and Allen Stone, to name but a few. As if that weren’t enough, the New York-based artist has proven an invaluable session player and touring musician alongside the likes of the Rolling Stones, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer, Oteil & Friends, and The Roots.
Along with their work together on stage and in the studio, Krasno has spent countless hours sharing stories with these incredible artists and these intimate moments have become some of his most cherished memories. ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE now allows fans everywhere to join their behind-the-scenes conversations, with topics spanning early inspirations to discussions about the state of the music industry, the challenges of life on the road, and much more. An exclusive trailer is streaming now via Osiris Media.
