Mouths of Babes on Lyrical Venus!

Mouths of BabesTune in to Lyrical Venus for an interview with Mouths of Babes! Wed, 2/25 9:30am.

Mouths of Babes is Ty Greenstein (Girlyman) and Ingrid Elizabeth (Coyote Grace). This tender tomboy and rough-and-tumble lady come together to melt hearts and shake souls with undeniable chemistry and a truly unexpected heralding of wisdom. Mouths of Babes' sound is equal parts celebration and blues, folk and soul, salve and anthem—an invitation to love this life, to sing your sob story and end it with a smile. These two songwriters light up the stage—juggling harmonies, guitar, bass, foot percussion, cajon, banjo, harmonica, and ukulele from song to song, inviting the audience to join the choir, and engaging listeners with sentiments that range from heartfelt to hilarious.

They will be gracing Fairfield with their tunes at Cafe Paradiso on Sat 2/28, 8pm.

Interview with Daisy on Lyrical Venus Wed 4/23!

Singer Songwriter DaisyOh Maria won't you come with me?
I called your name around the rosary
Oh Maria you can disagree
Spinning in the stormy history
~ Maria, by Daisy

With songs delightfully deep and quirky-fun by turns, Austin singer-songwriter and ray of sunshine Daisy released her debut EP entitled Do Be Do this week. Tune in to hear her discuss her path from her childhood on a farm in Washington state, to becoming a social worker, to giving that up to follow her heart to the musical mecca of Austin, Texas where she met producer Daniel Barrett.  Together they polished up 5 of her songs, including some co-writes with Steve Poltz, into a shiny gem of an EP that is sure to get your boots stomping along, at least when it isn't tugging at your heartstrings.

Tune in to Lyrical Venus from 9-10am Central for songs by female singer-songwriters. Interview with Daisy starts shortly after 9:25am.

Ellis is back! Live Interview Today, Concert Saturday 4/12!

Ellis Delany

Ellis. Who hasn’t heard Ellis. Fairfield has fallen in love with her. She packs Cafe Paradiso every time she plays. The phenomenon is however not unique. She seems to have this effect wherever she goes. Ellis is quietly amassing a loyal following of supporters across the country.

After her Feb 2013 appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, Ellis’ music charted in the Folk Top 100 in iTunes and Folk Top 20 on Amazon.com. She also received hundreds of messages from strangers including, "you exude pure joy", "I heard you and fell in love" and “I was stopped in my tracks by your music and captivating laugh” as well as "Yours is a voice we all need to hear.” Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts. 

Tune in to Lyrical Venus Wednesday morning for a live call-in from this amazing artist.  She will be appearing at Cafe Paradiso on Saturday, April 12th at 8pm

Interview with Hugh Cornwell of the The Stranglers

On Monday the 17th of February I will be broadcasting an Interview with Hugh Cornwell.

Hugh Cornwell is a British Musician, Singer Songwriter who had huge success during the eighties with the band The Stranglers being one of the premier bands in Britain alongside bands like the police and the clash. Despite their huge success in Europe scoring 23 top 40 singles and Albums the Stranglers remained largely unknown in the US. A phenomenon Hugh explained with their reluctance doing the extensive touring that would be necessary to become really popular in the US.

Hugh left the Stranglers in 1990 pursuing a solo career.  Even so he could not reclaim the success of the Stranglers, he remains as one off the most revered and respected musicians on the British island.

Since about five years Hugh is touring the US regularly and I was lucky enough to catch him on his last tour in Minneapolis. I regard myself extremely lucky for this opportunity to have this conversation and I am sharing it with you tonight in my show. So join me for this one hour with one of the most fascinating Musicians on today's Music scene.

Heather Mae Live Interview on Lyrical Venus!

Heather MaeOne of these days I'll see the Eiffle Tower
One of these days I'll go skinny dipping
One of these days I'll say hello to her
One of these days I'll marry him
~ Heather Mae, One of These Days

When we last talked with Heather Mae, she was in the midst of her year-long quest to write a song every day.  Since then, she has indeed reached the 365 song goal, and managed to narrow down that collection to 12 songs to put on her album appropriately titled "One Year of Songs".  She even filmed a video with the help of her fans from around the world for the song "One of These Days", an inspiring ode to seize the day and follow your dreams. 

Heather is stopping in Fairfield on a cross-country tour and will join us in the studio for a live interview at 9:30am today!  She is performing at Cafe Paradiso Wednesday, Aug 7th at 8pm (tonight), along with Heather Miller. (AKA your DJ Hum).
