Last Thursday, Onion The Man dropped by to hand out on Sounds of PDX to talk about new music and their upcoming shows. The band has an infectious positivity to their outlook on connecting with a live audience, creating music and the importance of evolution. The members of the band brought in tracks for the PDX Spotlight playlist that highlighted their early and current influences. Some of these artists included Frank Zappa, Kate Bush, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Earth Wind and Fire. During the course of the evening, we had plenty of traffic on the talk board, including the band’s die hard fan, Jason Cyders, who kept us entertained throughout the whole broadcast. Near the end of the show, the members of Onion The Man gave candid and insightful advice to future musicians that you won’t want to miss! Please enjoy Luke Neill and the Sounds of PDX with Onion the Man.
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.
