The Tone Mob Podcast

The year was 2015. Show host Blake Wyland intended to start a podcast where he took a deep dive with his guests from the guitar world to explain their rigs. What happened was that, but also a whole lot more. The show quickly evolved into discussions about people's lives. Guitars, pedals, amps, etc. are the central hub of the show, but it really is more about the PEOPLE behind all of it. Both the musicians who use the gear, and the folks that create these magical tools of expression. You can expect chats about songwriting, favorite bands, family, loss, addiction, conspiracy theories, philosophy, and most of all....... food. This podcast goes all over the place. Come take a ride.

episode 326: A Different Kind Of Music Job w/ Dan & Krystal (Warm Audio & Audio-Technica)

Today I am talking to Dan and Krystal from a company called Online Marketing. (No it isn't necessarily THAT kind of online marketing). They hold a rather unique position in the musical instruments market that I do not think most people have considered or are even aware exists. We talk about what that is, what the purpose of the company is and go over some products from a couple of the brands that they represent...



episode 325: Street Mosh Pits w/ Jon Orc of Hemorage

Hemorage are a San Francisco based band who have made a name for themselves by performing heavy thrash metal out of their van. They just pull up outside of a venue (oftentimes venues that refused to book them) and rip a fantastic set right in the street. We talk about the philosophy behind this process, what their rigs look like, the goals for the band and a whole lot more! Check out the band at their website...



episode 324: Chris Shiflett of Foo Fighters

This is definitely one of those "pinch me" moments. Chris Shiflett is not only a member of one of the raddest bands of all time, but he also is the host of a podcast that I love called Walking The Floor which you definitely should be listening to...



episode 323: Mr. Robert Keeley!!!

This is a long overdue episode! I am bringing back one of my favorite people, Bob Keeley himself. When Rob agreed to come on the podcast way back in 2015, I was not only flabergasted that he agreed to it, but it was one of the best episodes of this show that has been published...

episode 319: Video Games Started It All w/ Ayla Tesler-Mabe

Lots of people have theorized that the video game "Rock Band" may have kick started a whole generation of guitarists. Ayla proves that that might just be true. We had a great conversation about bringing just what the song needs to the table, technical ability vs songwriting, asking about the death of "genre" saying "YES" to everything and a whole lot more! Check her out on YouTube & Instagram as well as her website. You can also get lessons from her and a bunch of other rad folks at Guitareo...

episode 318: Protesting... Music? w/ Pat Finnerty

WHAT MAKES THIS SONG STINK? That is the question that launched Pat's YouTube career. In the depths of lockdown, Pat Finnerty, a lifetime musician from Scranton, PA started making videos critiquing songs. I found him via a video he made where he was literally protesting Train's "Soul Sister". Normally I kind of detest these types of things, but Pat has such a hilarious yet honest delivery that it just works. His work is absolutely hilarious, yet simultaneously accurate...
