Jon Thomson, the mind behind Synthwave and Retro Synth project Ethereal Delusions, joins The Gribshnobler for a lengthy chat and a showcase of his music. Along with solo work, this episode includes tunes from his collaborations with GlitterWølf and DMH MusicWorks, as well as a new track he produced for Hip-Hop artist Marheem.  While much of the discussion covers the topics of music writing and production, we also talk about our current working conditions, What our lives are like during the pandemic, and generally geek out about Animation, Film & TV, Matt Berry & other British comedians, and more.

This episode is dedicated to my favorite jazz musician, Chick Corea.
