That Pedal Show

Baroness at TPS! John and Gina - That Pedal Show

October 25, 2019

This is the audio to our video here:

John Baizley and Gina Gleason from Baroness visit That Pedal Show to show us their tour pedalboards, guitars, and chat about life, music and all that goes with it.

Welcome to the show! We are delighted to welcome John and Gina from Baroness to the TPS Studio, visiting us while the band was on the UK leg of their 2019 tour. We enjoy some fascinating insights from them both on their inspiration and motivation for their latest album, Gold & Grey, as well as plenty of pedalboard chat and demos.
