Guests

The trio of college friends from Murfreesboro, Tennessee first cemented Those Darlins on the porch-sitting, summer air nights when they began writing songs together.

Juno-Award winning Canadian rocker Sam Roberts started out as a humble singer-songwriter without much success with his home-recorded debut "Brother Down". But the release of his second album about-faced his fortune, and now Roberts and his eponymous band are one of the best-known Canadian rock acts.

Caitlin Rose has a fresh and gentle face, but her sweet demeanor seems deceiving when you listen to her fearless and energetic Nashville country style.

As the guitarist and principle songwriter for folk legends The Band, Robbie Robertson has already cemented himself as one of rock music’s all time greats.

Formed in 2010 as a way for musicians/married couple Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi to officially collaborate, the Tedeschi Trucks Band is an eleven-piece ensemble group oozing with talent and veteran confidence.

Thao Nguyen is a powerful songwriter and the front of wild alt-folk outfit, based in San Francisco.

With the release of his new self-titled album, legendary guitarist Dennis Coffey proves that sometimes it is indeed worth the wait.

On his most recent release "Broken Record", Lloyd Cole (formerly of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions) offers a healthy dose of gentle, country-soaked tunes.

Today on World Cafe is one of XPN's Artist(s) to watch for July! Cults had a bit of a fairy tale beginning, and their quick rise speaks volumes about the allure of their music.

Playing a brand of neo-psychedelia that brings to mind images of anyone from The Velvet Underground to The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Texas-bred The Black Angels are one of the more interesting and authentic acts in today’s music scene.
