On this edition of The Local Spin, we welcome Marty Gray, musician who currently resides in Ann Arbor, MI, but is originally from Marquette. He's released his own music since his 2017 debut album Eyeful, and returns with a new album called The Regular (a concept album of sorts), inspired by a night listening to a stranger unload all of his world-weary troubles. Our discussion ranges from Marty's roots and formative experiences in Marquette, his musical background of choir, band, opera and punk drumming, along with the story of how a night of karaoke at Marquette-staple Flanigan's turned into the experience that formed the album. Join us for a video interview and solo performance with Marty Gray, recorded in his home studio!

On this edition of The Local Spin, we feature singer, songwriter and poet Troy Graham, as he releases his next album 'UnEarth Your Imagination.' It's an album of newly written tunes along with classic Troy Graham songs, some of which are put together with a full band for the first time on record. He worked with longtime musical companions Joel Rabine of 4th Arch Studios in Marquette (bass), Eric Aho (percussion), and Dale Carrier (guitar).

On this edition of The Local Spin, we feature local troubadour Michael Waite, who's been working his magic in the Upper Great Lakes region for a number of years. He needs no introduction for most people in tune with the Marquette and Upper Peninsula music scene, but for those unaware, he's a singer, songwriter and entertainer with a gentle grace and a powerful voice.
