This week’s podcast guest is Bob Power, who’s a Grammy Award–winning and multi-platinum producer, engineer, composer, arranger, performer, and educator.
Bob started his career as a television and advertising composer, working on campaigns for The American Cancer Society (an Emmy Award winner), AT&T, Casio, Coca-Cola, Elizabeth Arden, Hardee’s, Hertz, Intel, Mercedes-Benz, Purina, and The United States Postal Service, and the Emmy-winning PBS series Over Easy.
He was a big part of the 2nd generation of hip hop, working with A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, worked with artists like Erykah Badu, D’Angelo and Macy Gray, among many others.
Bob has two music degrees, and is also currently a professor at the highly regarded Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. I spoke with him via skype from his studio in New York.
On the intro I’ll talk about the new online metal station Gimme Radio, and the worst songs and albums of all time.
Enjoy the show!
