Home Grown: Yesterday, Tomorrow, Today: Retro-futurist Eli Raybon

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie spend the entire show talking to “Music’s Mad Scientist” Eli Raybon. Raybon takes a love of analog synthesizers and a particular affinity for 80s New Wave and puts out his own brand of Retro-futurist Synth Pop. We talk with Eli about how he developed his sound, the trials of music categorization, navigating the Spotify playlist, the use of lab coats and brains on stage, and a whole bunch of other things. Plus, we listen to a couple of his tunes. Check out how an artist can look backwards, forwards, and still speak for today here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
