    Episode 80: Abby Posner

    42:03

    In this episode Jerrell speaks with multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Abby Posner. Devious Planet describes Abby as "an exceptional Los Angeles-based artist is an outstanding, genre-fluid, multi-instrumentalist who has a new album, Kisbee Ring, due out November 12th. Posner played every instrument on the record, and she mixed/produced it as well. Kisbee Ring is about urgency, reckoning, and repairing. Each song on the album takes a deep dive into topics such as depression, racial unrest/injustice and the urgency of getting help when you’re in a dark place and “lost at sea.” Kisbee Ring is another word for Life Preserver,  a metaphor that carries through the entire album." --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

    Episode 78: Kris Gruen

    41:48

    In this episode Jerrell speaks with singer-songwriter Kris Gruen.  "Welcome Farewell finds Gruen spinning autobiographical stories of family, community, and the farm life in Vermont's rural backcountry woods within which he is immersed. The central characters who occupy Welcome Farewell's songs are real people, including his late grandmother -- whose influence is honored with tracks like "Apple Tree" and the cinematically-arranged "Skyline Drive" -- and his wife, who invites her husband to join her in the fields in "When She Says”. All the songs on this album are made earnest by the writer and producer’s allegiance to their acoustic soul, but are energized and affirmed by the swooning pedal steel, horns, keys and rock-solid rhythm section that deliver stellar and personalized performances throughout. The result is an album that's both intimately conceived and collaboratively presented, a fitting combination for songs that take stock of Gruen's place within his family, his town, and the wider world."

    33:26

    In this episode Jerrell speaks with professional singer and songwriter Lea McIntosh and session guitarist Travis Cruse.  (Description Below from Devious Planet) Lea knows the blues. She grew up in a troubled household where she witnessed drugs, violence, and criminal mayhem. Her mother was murdered when Lea was only eleven, and her early years found her dealing with physical and emotional abuse. As a result, she’s given voice to her troubled, tumultuous past and reasserted herself with a record that reflects both her talent and tenacity. Blood Cash boasts seven original songs that Lea co-wrote with collaborator and guitarist Travis Cruse, aided and abetted by veteran musicians Myron Dove on bass, drummer Deszon Claiborne, and keyboardist Eamonn Flynn. The album was mixed by John Porter (Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Keb Mo, Bryan Ferry). --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

He has been a part of bands such as Hella, Chant Ohs, Holy Smokes, The Advantage, and many others. He shares he approaches music, his inspirations and how he gravitates to work with other artists to get the sound he desires. (HOST NOTE: "This episode is very special for many reasons. The first reason is for those who are familiar with the artist he is not as accessible as others. This is the only podcast episode currently available on the internet featuring this artist. The second is that he has personally been a big inspiration to me in learning the instrument and to create music. Enjoy!" - Jerrell) --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
