Fantastic podcast!

Lior is witty, entertaining, super knowledgeable and she gets great artists on the show! Loved episode 77 where she delves in with Jim James and Teddy Abrams about their incredible, one-of-a-kind collaboration The Order of Nature.

Sound

She has access to wonderful musicians. But the sound is god awful. Really, for a music podcast? I need to crank my volume to the max to try to hear anything.

Spectacular

Lior is a wonderful host. I highly recommend her Tallest Man on Earth, Mountain Goats, and Brann Dailor episodes! All winners!

Yank it up! (Or the most supreme podcast ever in history!)

Are you tired of your everyday aural experience being with cluttered with nothing but inane chatter, true crime podcasts, or sub-par improv about Game of Thrones? Look no further, sonny-Jim! This podcast provides you with candid, in-depth interviews with a wide variety of top level performers and creators from all walks of life. The host (that’s Lior) is fun and bubbly, but will get right down to serious business when need be, while keeping things moving along like smooth jazz.If you’re interested in hearing about the inner workings of some of your favorite performers without having to go to the garage (the gates are locked!) then be sure to check this pod out.Also, engineer Adam is pretty cool.

Great, in-depth interviews!

This is a great longform interview podcast, exclusively with musicians and singer/songwriters! There aren't enough podcasts out there like this, so I'm glad I just discovered it. Lior Phillips is a great host/interviewer, too!

This is such an awesome podcast. Lior is so delightful (I also love her accent) and she really knows her stuff. I love how real and genuine these conversations are. Feels like getting a sneak peak into the real worlds behind the artists and gigs. Thanks guys!

Hard to get thru the boring questions and conversation....too bad as some of the guests are really great.

Binge-worthy!

Recently stumbled upon this gem of a podcast and am obsessed. She’s interviewed so many of my favorite artists, all with different POV’s and opinions. I look forward to future interviews with utter anticipation. Keep it up! Also, come to NYC!

One of the Best Music podcasts!

It’s hard to come across long form interviews with artists/musicians outside of radio programs, but this podcast really stands out thanks to the host and the great guests they managed to bring on.

Fun and informative show!

Came in on the John Linnell show and enjoyed it. The host is very engaging and energetic. The questions are good, and help bring out great answers and stories from the artists. Highly recommended!

This Must Be THE PODCAST

Lior is a pro. She's been to nearly every major festival across the globe and seen nearly every band that's ever been dubbed essential, which is why This Must Be the Gig is such a treat to music fans. She brings her keen insight to the program and unpacks the industry no different than a hip roadie who's building a stage. Okay, that metaphor is weak as hell, but this show isn't. Start listening now for the ticket of a lifetime.

Excuse me, passion coming through.

Passion drives a good conversation. Lior is sitting in the drivers seat with some amazing passengers who have wonderful insight and stories...In fact I listened to the Shirley Manson episode on a long car drive from Vegas to LA and I felt like I was there with them. Lior possesses more passion and wonder in her pinkie than most people have in their whole bodies. She’s a person you want to have hrs long conversation with. So excited for more!
