After a long hiatus for the RSSH Podcast, I was finally able to get in touch with a legendary producer and songwriter to start off 2017 right! Check it out!
This week's podcast features Jem Godfrey, the leader, keyboardist, singer and songwriter for Frost. He has served as a producer for the well known English bands Atomic Kitten and Morcheeba and has acted as a song writer for iconic performers Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) Jennifer Ellison, Shayne Ward, and Holly Valance. He has toured with his own bands as well as Mike Keneally and Joe Satriani. His legendary status is well earned.
Definitely go out and buy their music. What incredible talents they are! Enjoy the show!
