Episode 018: John Feldmann

John_Feldmann_at_his_personal_studio

If you’re like me, your first introduction to John Feldmann’s work came in the classic Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater videogame, which featured Goldfinger’s ska classic “Superman.” That might have been much of the mainstream’s introduction to Feldmann’s musical skills, but he’s followed it up in a huge way ever since. In addition to fronting Goldfinger, Feldmann is an acclaimed producer and songwriter, helping guide albums for the likes of Black Veil Brides, Panic! at the Disco, The Used, and 5 Seconds of Summer. I caught up with John to talk about how “Superman” came to be, working with young artists, his personal connection to the show True Blood, and much more.
