#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“Formed in 2014, Nathan and Leland set out to create more dynamic, catchy music, without the traditional guitar/bass ensemble. After six months of songwriting, the guys went on to add Holly’s pop/hip-hop driven beats. Add that to Nathan’s rhythmic piano skills and rock-inspired vocals, along with Leland’s classically trained cello experience, and their music developed into an indie flare. After awhile, Holly went on to play her preferred instrument, the guitar. Then added on the talented Jeff Skalyo on drums. Check Standard Broadcast live around the Pittsburgh area!”

Standard Broadcast is a chamber rock band from Pittsburgh who recently put out their debut full length self-titled release which incorporates various seemingly disparate elements to form a unique genre busting sound. I want to thank Nate Jay (Keyboards/Lead Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Nate. I am in agreement that their is an amazing amount of support between musicians here in Pittsburgh. However, I do see some natural ‘cliques’ amongst the scene as others do and I would love to see how we can work to bring those barriers down more.
