While his name might not be as familiar to us Aussies who aren’t die-hard ska fanatics, Dan Potthast is a talented muso who’s been keepin’ it real in the USA since the nineties.

Brissy musician Samuel Geddes is no stranger to the Brisbane arts scene.

We caught up with him to talk about the launch of his new EP, Mandarin Season.
