Erin McKeown hasn’t recorded an album since 2013 but don’t think she hasn’t been busy. She’s actually been busier than ever working with playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes on a musical called Miss You Like Hell which will debut at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego this Fall. Erin provided the music and lyrics and said it was one of the most challenging and rewarding things she has ever done. But she’s back to writing and touring her music again and we were lucky enough to catch up with her recently.
Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Phil Cook wears a lot of hats obviously but his most recent is going solo with a great new record called Southland Mission. He came by our studios and sang a couple of his excellent songs for us.
Brenda The Band is from the Germantown neighborhood of Louisville hence the description of their music as “shotgun house rock”. They’ve put out one EP already and have a new album in the works which will be released in May of this year. They will also be doing our Live Lunch concert series on April 1st, no foolin’! Brenda is Matt Horne, Brenda Mahler, JC Denison, and Shelley Anderson.
