Welcome to the Nothing Shocking Podcast. On this weeks episode our guest is bass legend Tony Levin

Zoiks! Online Interviews: Joe Deninzon of Stratospheerius

0

A couple months back I was trying really hard to interview Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. I was able to land the interview. At the same time the PR person that helped me land the interview recommended the band Stratospheerius to me. I decided to check out this band simply because she did a favor for me, so I figured I could repay the favor. In the process I fell in love with this band.

I’ve been into progressive rock since I was a kid. So much of it is over my head, but that is what I found fascinating about it. Stratospheerius definitely sounds progressive but there are many other elements blended in there, jazz, metal, rock, r&b etc. The weird thing is that they’re also a jam band. I have a hard time wrapping my head around a jam band that plays progressive rock.

Joe Deninzon fronts Stratospheerius and he plays the electric violin. He is currently doing for the violin what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar. They have an album out called “The Next World” that is phenomenal. They are looking to record a video for the title track “One Foot in the Next World.” You can donate here:
