Two-time Grammy-winning guitarist and producer Eric Krasno has just launched a special new podcast series. Presented by Osiris Media, Eric Krasno Plus One finds the musician hosting a “one-of-a-kind” interview series exploring the lives and work of some of his closest friends and musical collaborators. 

The series launched with Dave Matthews (Episode 1) and Khruangbin founder/bassist Laura Lee (Episode 2). Additional episodes will follow each and every Monday featuring an array of very special guests, including Phil Lesh, John Mayer, Derek Trucks, Don Was, Marcus King, Questlove, Chris Robinson, John Scofield, Emily King, and many more. The podcast is available via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and through the official Osiris website.

One of my favorite things about being a touring musician is meeting other artists I admire, and the relationships we build through the years,.

“I’ve been able to meet many of my heroes and watched young musicians become legends in their own right,” says Krasno in a press release. “The one constant I’ve found is that they all have a unique and interesting story to tell. Eric Krasno Plus One gives me the opportunity to record some of these conversations and invite you into the room with us.”

Krasno, who plays with Soulive and Lettuce (both of which he co-founded), also works as a producer and songwriter for artists like Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, 50 Cent, Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville and Allen Stone. The New York-based artist has also toured alongside the likes of the Rolling Stones, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer, Oteil & Friends and the Roots.
