Episode 1: Mormons, Music, and the Japanese Love Song

The best thing to happen to music has finally happened…Episode 1 of the long-anticipated Should Be Famous podcast is live for the world to hear. On this inaugural episode, you’ll meet your hosts Clayton, Skye and Chris. We get things started with a dramatization of the struggle of one would-be musician. And as if that weren’t cool enough, they’ll introduce you to special guest Ethan Okura. Sit back, enjoy, and remember that this is our first go at it.

  1. Great job! I enjoyed the subject matter, the format, and the interplay between the hosts. Loved the song by Skye too. She should be famous!

  2. Good job. I think this will help propell Ethan to “CENTER STAGE” somewhere. Dontcha feel like he’ll be GREAT representing “US?!!”

    I think you’re a a great track. Next comes the video and 1st Mormom “SITCOM.” You CAN do it!

  3. I meant to add, “I think the music is GREAT and the ITCOM “could” revolve around your music.”

  4. That was great guys. Where’s Amy for this? She’d kick it up a huge notch!! Fun stuff. It spoke to me as a past singer/dancer!! -Carrie Madsen

  5. Fun pod cast Clayton. Busy? Believe me, I know the feeling. I bought a guitar after getting my MBA and within 4 months was called as Bishop. That combined with the 4 boys (and one more on the way) lead me to kiss my guitar good-bye, put it in its case, and place it in my closet for the next 5-6 years….as if I’m really going to have time for playing it by then either. Hey, one can hope.

  6. Love the new podcast Clayton and company! I wasn’t expecting it to be as funny as it was. I loved hearing your wife laughing in the background during the interview reel with Ethan. You guys have a great format going and I’m looking forward to hearing more. Thanks for the good laughs and excellent tunes. Keep up the good work!

  7. ha ha! Okay, apparently I’m slow, but all during recording and listening to this ‘cast before publication, I never noticed that in the skit you say you’re gonna go play “Come Come Ye Saints” on the drums. It goes by so quickly, it’s hilarious.

  8. Great Podcast! Love the “shoot the breeze” flow, and you’ve stumbled upon a great topic of “undervalued musicians”. I can totally relate as my wife has musical talent leaking out the ears, but yet finds it hard to be a full-time mom & wife & get her music out to the masses. Looking forward to future podcasts!

  9. Nice work guys!

    -I liked the interplay but I thought it was a little too much talk.
    -Also, Skye and Clay’s speaking became a little too casual after 17 minutes, meaning your diction was lost and words were jumbled so it was hard to understand you.
    -Your answer on “being famous” went more than just answering the question and I think delved a little too deep into the cynical or complaining aspect. The complaining works if there’s humour.
    -The skit was cute and funny. Skye got the best line: making pin cushions out of old socks. Gross.

  10. I laughed outloud listening to the “Mormon Artist” skit. I would totally buy “Japanese Boy and American Beauty.” Very sweet!

  11. Ooo, I love Skye’s song too. Do you have a list of all of the music and artists you have featured and where to purchase/download?

    Thanks!
