KCRW’s Apogee Sessions feat Jenny Lewis by Jeremiah Garcia

While Jenny Lewis’ new album “The Voyager” was born out of many tales of woe (gnarly bouts of insomnia, the death of her father, and the end of her band Rilo Kiley), she has never looked more comfortable or happier on stage than how she did at Apogee Studio for a live KCRW session taped last night.
In her slick black pantsuit, rockin’ a rainbow …

KCRW’s Apogee Sessions featuring Conor Oberst hosted by Anne L

To say that last nights KCRW Apogee Session guest of honor Conor Oberst, was all bright-eyed and bushy tailed would not only be a terrible pun, it wouldn’t be far from the truth.
The indie singer songwriter is usually known by and large as having an introspective and somber style but he showed the small Santa Monica crowd a more playful side even surprising some …

Meshell Nedegeocello started off her live set for KCRW at Apogee Studio with a quiet, beautiful song – “Oysters” – accompanied only by piano.
