If there was any doubt that he’s a massive music aficionado, the first few minutes of Nik Greeley‘s appearance on the 25 O’ Clock Podcast handily squelch them. The guy nerds out about everything from The Rolling Stones to Radiohead’s Kid A (which he first heard as a South Jersey 10-year-old kid) with host Daniel Drago, enthusing about the music he loves and how it helped shape him as an artist.
Along the way, he talks about his admiration for dedicated local promoters like the R5 Productions crew and the Ardmore Music Hall folks, discusses his fondness for the jam rock scene both local (Out of the Beardspace) and national (Phish), and tells an awesome story about meeting George Clinton. He also performs a new / unreleased acoustic number called “Maybe There’s A Reason” that has Sam Cooke vibes in spades.
