Taproot’s Stephen Richards Is Back! Download

34:49 Download March 6th, 2023

The Taproot machine cranked up this week. They pegged down a date for the new album, announced some shows and pretty much hopped back onto the scene.

Singer, Steve Richards, was cool enough to swing by the station for an interview about everything the band has going on. He told me about the entire making of the album, which he did all by himself. It’s over a decade or recording, writing and finetuning each note. It’s called SC/SSRS (Scissors) and drops on September 29th. The band is going to celebrate its release with a couple shows at the Machine Shop in Flint, Mi. that weekend, the first of which sold right out right away, plus some other shows including the Blue Ridge Rock Fest with some of the biggest names in rock.

He tells me about some of the songs, one that’s as close to a love song as he’s ever gotten. He tells me about some special guests than join him on the record, as well as if he’s going to send Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst a copy. LOL

That’s just for starters on this wide ranging conversation. Enjoy!
