Coffee Over Suicide - End of the Year Music Spectacular

December 21, 2018
This is the last episode of 2018!
This past season has been incredible and to cap it off I thought it would be really great to showcase some of the amazing musicians I’ve been fortunate enough to talk to on this here podcast. This runs the gauntlet from metal, to punk to pop! Everyone is dealing with something, and everyone uses a different kind of music to do it. This is really eclectic. We’ve got some rare or otherwise unreleased stuff from The Hunger Artist, Spells and even live acoustic stuff recorded during the show and it all caps off with a new release Christmas song by FI!
Stick THAT in your stocking, you lucky so-and-so!

Coffee Over Suicide #23 - Rachel Caudill (Resistance is Tactile)

December 7, 2018

Rachel Caudill and I have an in depth conversation about our mutual appreciation of art, the tendency to overthink things and overcoming suicidal ideation. We also get into what we learned from seeing multiple therapists, PTSD and learning to love yourself after trauma. 


I have to warn you that this episode might be triggering if you are sensitive to the subject of sexual assault or suicidal behavior. That said, we do manage to walk each other back into the light of hope for the future by the end of the conversation.

Coffee Over Suicide #22 - Emma Dawn (Fat Stallion)

November 30, 2018

Fat Stallion is not a typical band, so it should come as no surprise that Emma Dawn is not a typical person. We have a great conversation about what its like to grow up in a musical family, as well as finding some clarity and joy while navigating depression and identity. Its a great mountain of a conversation full of laughter and melancholy that all wraps up with a beautiful song!

Be sure to check out for music and updates!

Coffee Over Suicide #21 - Katy Johnson (Television Generation)

November 23, 2018

Saipan isn't known for producing artists. Which is probably why Todays guest Katy Johnson came to Colorado. We have a really great conversation about music, art, finding yourself and coming to terms with not having all the answers. We also delve pretty heavily into what it's like to struggle with anxiety, depression and alcohol.

Coffee Over Suicide #20 - Tiffany Armstrong (Shattered Halo, Two Minutes Darker)

November 16, 2018
Tiffany Armstrong is controlled chaos personified. We get into some pretty heavy things right out of the gate, like dealing with death at 5 years old, shifting parental figures and overcoming the urge to self destruct through art. As harsh as that sounds, we have some genuine laughs along the way.

November 2, 2018
Alexander Bjorn Vargas is a walking dichotomy. He's a half Norwegian, half Mexican, tough as nails Buddhist that sings beautiful melodies over heavy guitars. We talk about all of that (AND MORE!) before wrapping it all up with not one, but 2 acoustic performances of never before released songs!
