So excited to begin Season 5 of my podcast, Baring It All with Call Me Adam!

This season I am focusing on My Entertainment Idols.

I am thrilled to kick off this season with Singer, Songwriter & Actor Brentley Gore, who you know from NBC's '90s television series California Dreams.

Last year, I got to interview Brentley who played Matt Garrison on California Dreams, along with Jennie Kwan who played Samantha 'Sam' Woo when they came to NYC for the California Dreams Reunion Concert.

NOW, Brentley has released his newest solo album, At The Ready, and I am so proud to say I am a fan of it.


In this NEW interview, Brentley is Baring It All with Call Me Adam about:
  • The meaning behind his new album, At The Ready
  • His creative process for writing the album
  • When he had to put on a brave face, but was really struggling inside
  • How Brentley would portray Matt Garrison on California Dreams today
  • Who are some of Brentley's Entertainment Idols
  • So much more


At The Ready is available everywhere you stream music.
