Season 3 - Ep. 21 - Discussing New Album Megadeth Tee with Sacramento Rock Band Oh Lonesome Ana
Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with the Sacramento indie rock band Oh Lonesome Ana about their incredible new album Megadeth Tee, the process for creating it, and so much more.
I got the chance to hear about this band through a press release for their single “Rushing Lattice” that had a music video accompaniment, and just from watching that video, I knew I had to learn more about this band and made sure to check out the full album when it came out.
We’ll talk more about why this band is so incredible, and why I think you should also be listening to them right after this.
