In honor of David Bowie’s birthday this week, I wanted to share this rendition of “Where Are We Now”, the first single from his most recent album “The Next Day”.
The lush ballad is beautifully simple and spare in the hands of Conor O’Brien, known as Villagers. The Irish singer performed it during his 2013 appearance on KCRW and it’s always stuck with me.
He’s been …

Posted January 5, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 5,380 views]

Laura Marling’s debut appearance on MBE in 2010 was a session I will never forget. We were all struck by this young (20 years old), blond-haired girl seated solo in the middle of the room armed with nothing but a guitar and her voice.
She was so powerful that all of us were silent and in awe.
That album catapulted her into the public eye as …

Jenny and Johnny Cover “Love Hurts”

Posted October 28, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,648 views]

Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice aka Jenny and Johnny are one of my favorite musicals couples because they are both ultra-talented and compliment each other so well.
We recently recorded a live session with Jenny around her latest solo album “The Voyager” (airing on Monday, 11/3) and seeing Johnathan behind the scenes, clearly providing off stage support, made me want to revisit their session in …

GA and Jason

These days especially, people seem to have a wide range of feelings about Kanye West, based on a life that bounces  from musical genius to celeb tabloid magnet and everything in between.
With his most recently album “Yeezus” he took his musical experimentation to the next level but, before that, there was “808s & Heartbreak”. His 4th studio album was conceived in the wake of …
