Guests

Though still in her 20s, the fiddler and singer-songwriter has been plying her trade in Nashville for a decade and a half. She talks singing with her siblings and her Jack White-produced solo debut.
Formed out of friendship, the trio blends a love of noise with powerful melodicism and a knack for capturing the ups and downs of millennial life.
While making City Music, Morby looked to Lou Reed's legacy for the confidence to experiment. He tells World Cafe about the album and the role New York has played in his story.

Hear the band perform songs from Ti Amo - an album that's surprisingly lighthearted, given the string of attacks that struck Phoenix's French homeland as work on the record progressed.
Sekou's new album, In Times Like These, was produced by Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars, who join him for a live performance in this session.
Since releasing her debut in May, the singer-songwriter has begun to turn heads with a fresh take on the Bakersfield sound and a knack for honest lyrics. Hear an interview and live performance.
Having expanded its roster and its sound, the LA band visits World Cafe to perform the title track of its latest album.
