Loud in Cleveland Podcast with Beach Stav

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2015 at 12:28 PM

Loud in Cleveland returns today with their 21st episode. Hosts Drew Maziasz and Michael Cornacchione spoke with Jon Conley of Beach Stav.

From Michael and Drew:

Beach Stav, a project of brothers Jon and Mike Conley with a rotating cast of supporting players, is a name that you see on fliers all the time but a group that is still shrouded in a bit of mystery. We contacted Jon a few weeks ago to stop by and sit on the couch and make an effort to start unraveling a bit of that for ourselves. Wait… that makes it sound a bit like therapy, doesn’t it? I assure you the couch is just a living room couch.

All catharsis aside, we talked about Jon’s evolution from a “shithead kid” musician (his words) to his current gig as front man of one of the more respected bands on Cleveland’s west side. Jon’s just a bit farther along in life than we are and he explained how a band changes when its members start developing responsibilities to families and jobs that didn’t exist when the band started. The other half of The Brothers Conley is Mike, Jon’s younger brother who provides the musical insight to make Beach Stav’s songs more than your average psychedelic garage pop.
