Friends and co-hosts John Surabian and Mark Lawhorne meet at the UMA podcast studio weekly to record episodes of Musicians and Beyond, a podcast that “spotlights new emerging artists, some local and some from afar… but all bringing you great music!”
John and Mark have candid conversations with their guests about the music industry and personal life. They work hard at being consistent, showcasing the musicians, and on occasion, they also invite UMA interns to listen in or even co-host an episode.
The guests featured on Musicians and Beyond vary in notoriety, showing how there are various ways to venture into the industry and maintain a successful career. Some recent guests include singer-songwriter Michael Pace, vocalist Vanessa Salvucci, and the Grammy-nominated Jeff Batson.
