After more than three months of getting my act together, I was finally able to sit down and interview the talented Jody Ellen. Now many geeks may know Jody from her singing with the Steampunk band Abney Park, however, many more will probably be introduced to her incredible singing (and songs!) via her upcoming solo album! I was able to see Jody and AP perform in Dearborn, Michigan during last year Steam Expo. She along with the rest of the band were very gracious and accessible to their fans. It was shortly thereafter that I discovered her on Youtube, Twitter, and Facebook and her amazing solo work. Jody’s voice is amazing. It’s hard to describe or compare it to another artists’. I’ll just say that it beautiful. Listen and tell me I’m wrong. That being said, during this interview you’ll get to listen to three unreleased (and unfinished) tracks from her new album! Oh, you also get the definitive versions of the MILK story. I also admit to being a Bluegrass Music geek.
Where to find Jody.

Technical Notes: (ie. What went technically wrong during the interview). This interview was planned to be audio only, so video was not a problem at all. (check) Audio, was again. FAIL. During a test before the interview I had adjusted my audio settings so everything was just peachy… but then I tweaked something. Bad, bad sound engineer.
