About the episode

“Before, we had like a free-for-all party sound. This might be a more unifying sound, at least from within.” – Aldous Collins

Aldous Collins has emerged from the quiet of Covid to a rebirth of sorts. Like all of us, the frontman for The Aldous Collins Band is thinking more about how he wants to live, to work, to show up for his family. We talk about what that will look like in his music and why he’s making changes to his high-energy, funk band. Asked what the new sound will be he says, “I hope it sounds like stuff that people want to hear. I mean, to say exactly what it sounds like, I don’t really know. I’m learning a whole new instrument. I just hope it’s more of like a team sound.”

The Goffstown, NH native is a father to seven kids with his second wife Melanie, a novice bassist, a live-out-loud painter, beer collaborator…spiritual gangster.
