Guests

On his new album Justin Townes Earle aims to prove a few things. Ten songs clocking in just over thirty minutes, "Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now" is one of Justin’s finest works to date harnessing his strength as a captivating storyteller.

Often, an artist can be defined by his or her influences.  Woody Guthrie's legacy demands instead that he be remembered for the legendary writers that he influenced.

John K. Samson, known for his deeply eloquent lyrics and tenure as the frontman of Canadian indie rock outfit The Weakerthans, is just now releasing his first solo album.

Though Robert Glasper Experiment is a fairly new entity, Robert Glasper himself has been experimenting in genre mash-ups for his entire musical career. 

The Milk Carton Kids released their second album, "Prologue" for free online to over 60,000 fans. This dynamic folk duo is getting a lot of buzz and is made up of singer and guitarists Joe Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale who started playing music together in 2010.

Fun. That's the name of the pop-rock trio from New York that's making waves for their spunky and theatric meld of genres.

Heartless Bastards are back and better than ever.  The Cincinnati-based group recorded their first demo in 2002 and their big break came in 2004 when The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney passed their demo along to Fat Possum Records.  From there, they didn't need much help capturing the attention and praise of critics and fans. 

Zola Jesus (whose off-stage name is Nika Roza Danilova), has been deeply shaped by her rural and philosophical upbringing--and it shows in her music. Training in opera for ten years, leading a secluded childhood in the bitter cold Wisconsin forest, and becoming a rising synthpop sensation while studying philosophy in college have all informed her experimental, multi-genre sound.

Singer-songwriter, Anaïs Mitchell hails from Vermont and she's been deeply influenced by all things classic folk. Her strong, emotive vocals and confessional ballads have earned her comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Gillian Welch.

The Shins is a dream-pop outfit hailing from Portland, and revolving largely around singer/songwriter James Mercer. Arising as a side project while Mercer lived in New Mexico, The Shins took on a life of its own after a number of singles such as "New Slang" were featured on films, and pulled the young indie rock group into the national spotlight.
