Episode 356 – Uncle Sinner - A Goddam Delight

We welcome Uncle Sinner to the show for the first time. Different, avant-guard, and from the earth, Uncle Sinner’s music defies categories, but feels familiar. His music bleeds, breathes, and inspires. We have a talk with the Uncle to find out what makes him tick.

(0:32) We start the show with some Winnipeg Winter talk before moving onto (1:43) just where Uncle Sinner has been all our lives. (5:52) What makes up his sound and what does he owe to Son House, (8:28) the root of the music being honesty and an experience.

(10:30) Just what is the recording process, from the gear used, the mics, and how it is all put together? (15:13) Uncle Sinner is about his unique voice and how he works it. (17:00) We talk about tracking and how the whole mastering process works. (20:58) What are his beginnings in music, from an appreciation to learning guitar and banjo and making his first recordings? (27:56) We discuss the work ethic of writing songs and knowing when a song is good. (30:41) What are the future plans for Uncle Sinner? (31:44) And what about that Nic Dyson?

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
