Episode 33. Darren Walters. Lessons Learned While Changing The Tone of Hardcore and Indie Music
When you talk to someone like Darren Walters, you have the opportunity to learn more than you may never realize.
In fact, the kid who would hit a homerun with his first label and first release, Turning Point’s 7″ on Hi Impact, wouldn’t stop there. He’d go on to be a part of Jade Tree Records, which in time would literally change the face, tone and look of Hardcore Punk, Indie and Emo Music. This was recorded in 2 separate sessions due to some technical bugs, but it is best that it runs almost 5 hours and is complete instead of in 2 parts. If you ever wanted to learn about the Music Industry from someone who would later teach Music Industry classes at Drexel University, this is fucking it.
From the very beginning of his story, to the very end of Jade Tree, this cover so much. I had such a pleasure with these 2 conversations and there is just so much history and things to glean from.
Darren is an inspiration and his work and the legacy of what it did for our scene locally and overall is unbelievable and unparalleled. .
