The virtual lounge is open and the sounds of synthwave fill the air. Ty continues his discovery of the 80's influenced music genre and is joined by singer/songwriter Michael Oakley. The two discuss Oakley's latest record "Introspect", an album that tells the story of his journey from piano bar player in Glasgow to becoming one of the hot artists in synthwave. Ty and Michael breakdown the record as well as talk about the musicians and songs that influenced Oakley's style. You don't have to know synthwave to enjoy this edition of Beats and Eats. If you are a music lover, grab a chair, pour a pint, and listen to a lively discussion about 70's and 80's music history.
