Sheri Miller Interview on Lyrical Venus Radio! Tues 9/6

Sheri Miller

You next to me, me next to you
We're perfectly in tune
Curled up in this room
I'm melting into you
We fit like spoons
~ Spoons, Sheri Miller

New York singer-songwriter Sheri Miller has been writing songs since childhood, following her natural instinct to create and express.  Her latest release, Winning Hand, produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel), is lush and complex, yet easy to relate to both musically and emotionally.  From the uptempo and hooky Spoons to the Bollywood Rock flavored Satellite, Sheri explores matters of the heart with refreshing honesty and a healthy helping of poetic metaphor.

Tune in from 9-10am Central for your weekly concentrated dose of music by women.  We'll kick off with rain songs in hopes of bringing some rain to parched Texas, and we'll hear from Sheri at 9:30!

Ember SchragGrant me two months in the hills
To weep with my maidens
For I'll never marry a man
Or kiss my sweet children
Jephthah's Daughter, Ember Schrag

A credit to her name, Nebraska singer-songwriter Ember Schrag's music burns slow, low and steady. Her most recent release, an EP called Jephthah's Daughter, features Ember unadorned with anything other than her guitar.  Her sweet, soaring vocals will warm your heart, her agile delivery and intelligent lyrics keep your attention.  Like a prairie wildflower gift in the hands of a young child, each song is full of small, delightful surprises.

Join me Tuesday, October 12th from 9-10am Central for your weekly dose of female singer-songwriters.  Ember will be calling in around 9:30.

Lauren Zettler
Someone wrap themselves around me
Wear my edges down won't you please?

~ Shapes, Lauren Zettler

Lauren Zettler is a savvy DIY type of gal. The bio on her website talks about her journey to musicianhood, from the childhood dream, to the detours due bouts of practicalness, to the lightning-bolt epiphany that the “jealous tears”
at every musical performance she attended were probably not necessary
and that she should follow her heart.

Tune in Tuesday from 9-10am for music by great female singer-songwriters and for the interview with Lauren, including a preview of some tracks from her soon-to-be-released EP!
