Pat Irwin: 2024 Catch-Up

  1. Pat Irwin: 2024 Catch-Up Leah Roseman 1:45:26

This week’s episode is a Catch-Up episode with the renowned film and televison composer and multi-instrumentalist Pat Irwin, and we are featuring lots of Pat’s music for you today in different styles from many of his projects. 

In my previous episode with him from 2023, Season 3 of this podcast, we talked about his days with the B52s and composing the score for Dexter: New Blood, and we also talked about his band SUSS and his work mentoring graduate students, and so much more . I encourage you to click on the link to that earlier episode if you missed it: https://www.leahroseman.com/episodes/pat-irwin

Today’s conversation also jumps around Pat’s varied and fascinating creative life. You’ll hear more stories and music from some of his acclaimed cartoon music from Rocko’s Modern Life and songs from Pepper Ann.  We talk about, and you’ll hear music from some of his projects,  including rocking out with the PI Power Trio with Sasha Dobson and Daria Grace,  and new albums coming out with Cynthia Sley, with SUSS and with Julia Heyward.  I’m blown away by Pat’s detailed memory and this episode is rich with interesting stories, and also his down-to-earth advice. 

 Like all my episodes, you can watch this on my YouTube channel or listen to the podcast, and I’ve also linked the transcript to my website: https://www.leahroseman.com/episodes/pat-irwin-2024-catch-up
