Inside Music Podcast #37 – Dawson Scholz (The Ongoing Concept)

On this episode of INSIDE MUSIC, host James Shotwell calls Dawson Scholz, vocalist and guitarist for The Ongoing Concept, to discuss his band’s upcoming album. TOC have been a fixture of alternative music since 2013, but their latest release finds them pushing themselves, as well as their genre peers, to go above and beyond in the pursuit of original ideas. James and Dawson discuss the ideas behind the band’s new music, as well as their decision to build the instruments used on their new album from scratch, and even touch on the challenges artists face when releasing new music in 2015.

The music you hear in the intro to ‘Inside Music’ this week is “Unwanted” from The Ongoing Concept. You can learn more about that song, as well as the album it hails from, on the band’s official website.
