Josh T. Pearson: Midnight Chats – Episode 57

Recorded live on stage at End of the Road festival 2018

It’s rare that we take Midnight Chats into the outside world but for special occasions we do, and this episode is a reminder of why that can be pretty fun.

Recorded in front of an audience at this year’s End of the Road in September Josh T. Pearson – frontman with Texan rockers Lift To Experience – rocked up on a festival golf cart minutes before we started recording.

He – like many of us – was seeing off the remnants of Friday night’s festivities as we took a seat on the festival’s woodland Piano Stage to chat about his new country comedy album (‘Country-versy’), how social media “might be the Panopticon of our times” and the chances of Lift To Experience doing some more shows (they reunited for Guy Garvey’s Meltdown in 2016). Oh, and it’s Josh T. Pearson, so there was just enough time for a rude gag about Willie Nelson.
