This past Monday on my radio show “Ghost Trees,” I had the opportunity to talk with San Francisco musician, and a personal music hero, Danny Paul Grody. Grody is a prolific local artist who has been a member of the acclaimed, ambient, experimental, drone group Tarentel. Grody’s projects include out-rock instrumental band, The Drift, who released a double album titled Blue Hour in October of 2011 on Temporary Residence, Moholy Nagy, who released the debut record Like Mirage in October, also on Temporary Residence, and the upcoming Believer project. Grody has collaborated frequently with one of Root Strata’s operators, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, as well as Trevor Montgomery, another Tarentel alumnus. Danny Paul Grody’s solo releases orient themselves around acoustic and electric guitars, and more recently, harmonium, bows, synth, and bells. His recent solo long play recording, In Search of Light was released in 2011 on Students of Decay, while Fountain was released on Root Strata in 2010. Danny Paul Grody has an upcoming solo record to be released on Three Lobed recordings later in 2012, and he is also working on music for two documentary projects. KZSU is excited to host Mr. Grody in the 2012 Day of Noise (Feb 12th, 2012).

For your listening pleasure, I have uploaded the interview. Make sure to check out Mr. Grody’s website to keep up on the latest in his world of creative output.

Upcoming interviews on Ghost Trees, which, as a reminder, airs Mondays from 9am – noon PST on KZSU Stanford 90.1FM and kzsulive.stanford.edu:
