#150 Everett Moran

(First airdate: January 28, 2020) LISTENING TO THE BEAT AT RAINSHADOW. Our Town host Maryanne McNellis interviews Everett Moran, founder of Rainshadow Recordings. Everett is from Texas and his family is in the oil business. One of his grandfather’s wells is still producing after 83 years. But music is in Everett’s blood. As a young man he toured the country with acts such as Kenny Loggins. The “kid” loved being on the bus with the band, setting up and tearing down sets. and waking up in a different city. But he ended up back in Oklahoma, in management at the family’s oil company for many years. Although he always played in a band outside of his work in the oil business, it was a divorce and a new love that convinced him to return to the world of sound. He leases space at Fort Worden for Rainshadow Recordings. Although the studio is relatively new, he hopes to make it a ‘destination studio’ for groups outside of the area.
