One week before releasing his latest LP, Chris Margolin and The Dead Bird Collection dropped by the show to debut the record for our listeners. On this episode of the program, Chris shared the events in his life that helped shape the new album, Tattooed Hearts and Other Selfish Mistakes I’ve Made. During the program Chris also performed a few acoustic tracks that filled the talk board with praise from our audience. This latest record is a fantastic collection of songs that are meaningful, dynamic, and full of emotion. I always enjoy having Chris on the show and appreciate his approach to songwriting and musicianship.
Please enjoy my interview and playlist with Chris Margolin and The Dead Bird Collection.
At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
