Gino Vannelli


Five years ago, Gino Vannelli joined us for our 100th episode of Inside MusiCast.  At the time, he was in the process of recovering from a nearly devastating in-ear monitor accident that he feared had permanently damaged his hearing.  Fortunately, through a variety of self-healing therapies and teaching himself new singing methods, Gino overcame the trauma and has been touring, writing and recording new music.  In fact, Gino has written over 40 songs since his last album project nearly eight years ago and is in the process of completing a brand new album.  To chat about this new album project among other topics, inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome Gino Vannelli.

Andy Summers


From playing clubs at the age of 16, to venturing off to London with his friend Zoot Money and formed Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band when he was 19, Andy Summers musical journey was just beginning to flourish.  Summers went on to perform with other bands and musicians including The Soft Machine, The Animals, Kevin Coyne, Jon Lord, Joan Armatrading, David Essex, Neil Sedaka, and Kevin Ayers.  But it was his gig with Strontium 90 that introduced him to Gordon Sumner and Stewart Copeland that catapulted his career into one of the most successful bands ever, The Police.  After the band’s final studio album, “Synchronicity” in 1983, Summers, like his bandmates, embarked on solo careers that continue to this day.  In fact, Andy recently released his 14th solo project “Triboluminescent” and he’s here to talk to us about it.  Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome Andy Summers.
