You're a loyal and caring friend.  You've always wanted to show your love and appreciation, but weren't sure how to do it.  This helps support everything I do - podcasts, live shows, recorded music - and the time & resources it takes to do it all.  It makes a huge difference, and I can't thank you enough.

About Nick DeMatteo | MUSIC is not a GENRE

If you’ve always felt slightly out of place as a music fan or creator, then this is your home. These podcasts are all about the spaces between music – the connections others don’t see or feel that we KNOW are there.

In each podcast, we break down a song, album, artist, style or musical concept, and discover how it connects to other music, my music, and the world at large. You even get a front row seat to interviews with other creators, performers and music lovers. It’s fun & freaky, formatted & freewheeling, and always passionate.

What do you think? How do you feel? Where do you belong? I want to know it all. I’ve had an over 30-year career as a singer/songwriter/performer. I'm obsessed with music every day. The styles, the theory, the history, the juicy tidbits you don't read in the liner notes but love on Page Six. I can see how it’s all connected, and how it all matters – as art AND as ideas that reach far beyond the world of music.

You want music talk that gets in, around and through where other music podcasts dare to go? You want to connect with other music obsessives and see how we all fit together?

MUSIC is not a GENRE is for you.
