Pop-Punk & Pizza #109: Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic

One of my favorite bands to come out of the pop punk scene in the last five years is, Stand Atlantic. Nothing quite beats their crunchy guitar hooks, catchy honest lyrics, and Bonnie Fraser’s incredibly versatile vocals. On this episode, Bonnie and I discuss their latest album, “Pink Elephant”, and she answers a few fan […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #107: Vinnie Fiorello

I’ve been a fan of Less Than Jake since I was about eight or nine years old. Like many of us, they were one of the first ska punk bands that I ever heard. As I got older, I learned that not only was Vinnie Fiorello the drummer of the band, he was the main […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #106: The Midnight Echo

I find that most song titles are self-explanatory.  Many song titles come from the hook of the chorus. For example, “Dirty Little Secret” by All-American Rejects or “Dear Maria, Count Me In” by All Time Low. When I heard, “Paris in 39”, by Canadian alternative rock band, The Midnight Echo, not once did I hear […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #105: The Fallaways

It’s been awhile since I’ve eaten pizza with a band. Before the pandemic, I used to do it almost every single episode. I decided to start bringing it back, except this time, it’s a virtual pizza party! The Fallaways of Vancouver, BC, ordered two Papa Johns pizzas. One, Hawaiian, and the other was a supreme […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #104: Jake Newling of Joyful

I can’t imagine what it must be like to start up a brand new band right before a pandemic hits. I’m sure joyful. of Chicago is not the only band that is experiencing this right now. At least it hasn’t stopped the new pop rock trio from releasing new music. Joyful’s latest single, “Pilot Light”, […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #100: Jacques LaMore

Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast has officially made it to one-hundred episodes! I’m still in disbelief that we have finally reached this milestone. I say that because at the beginning of January 2020, I announced my hiatus from the podcast. My mental health had reached an all time low and it was hard to function through […]
