TPS Sessions: Jellybone Rivers

The music scene on Martha’s Vineyard sure does slow down in the offseason, but we find ways to keep busy! Over the winter, I asked some local musicians to record a bit of music and conversation with me at Phil daRosa‘s Oak Bluffs studio – The Print Shop. I also reached out to some local photographers to come by and capture these in-studio interviews. We’re calling the recordings “TPS Sessions” and I hope you enjoy them!

ROB_laughRob Myers, aka Jellybone Rivers, has spent many many years on Martha’s Vineyard as a fixture of the island music scene. You may have seen him behind a drum-set, for bands like Good Night Louise, The Hammerheads and Master Exploder. He also fronts the band Kahoots and has recently been honing in on some solo material that focuses on positivity. Below are some tunes that he played for me, and you can scroll down to hear a piece of our conversation.

“Chip Away”

“ThankĀ  You”

“What To Do”
