I had the chance to interview cellist and singer/songwriter Ben Sollee before his performance at WFPK Waterfront Wednesday. He played a brand new song for us called Steeples and reflected on how he came to be a cellist.

In the Studio: The Secret Sisters

Laura and Lydia Rogers are The Secret Sisters with a new album produced by T-Bone Burnett called Put Your Needle Down. Their harmonies are reminiscent of early Everly Brothers who happen to be an influence of theirs. In this interview and performance, they talk about how they went from being casual singers and music lovers in their hometown of Florence, Alabama to touring with Paul Simon and being given a song to finish by Bob Dylan. Their trajectory has been remarkable in a very short amount of time!

The Whigs on WFPK!

From Athens, GA., now living in Nashville, we had The Whigs in the studio before their excellent performance at our June Waterfront Wednesday show. We talked about the new album, Modern Creation, and they did some acoustic versions of new songs. Pictured above is a scene from their latest video produced by Wax Fang’s Scott Carney for the song “Hit Me”.
