As a fan of music in general I think it’s always a good practice to expand your horizons and step outside your comfort zone.  Even if a particular genre isn’t really my cup of tea, I always learn something by studying what is going on in other genres.  On today’s episode we do just that in our interview with an Austin, TX artist who has a huge cult following named Danny Kiranos who tours under the moniker, Amigo The Devil.

As you’ll hear in the interview Danny has had an interesting journey to become the artist he is today.  Danny went from a successful life as an honest to God, Master Brewer of craft beer to becoming a hugely popular one-man act with nothing more than banjo.

Amigo the Devil is pretty much the torch-bearer for the genre known as “murder-folk”.  His songs are witty and wry takes on some of the darkest parts of human life including murder and human suffering.

I really enjoyed our visit with Danny and found his life and the “murder-folk” side of things just down right interesting.  During the interview through zoom he even showed Carly and I some interesting pieces from his collection of oddities.

This was another fun interview and I really think you’ll enjoy Danny and our dive into a new genre of music here on the podcast.
