Spinning in the stormy history

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.
Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.
This week Generation whY talks with Walk the Moon's lead singer, Nicholas Petricca. Nicholas Petricca is the lead vocals, Keys, Synthesizer, and Bass Drum. Nicholas wrote the song "Anna Sun", which was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To". Written by Petricca and New York singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis towards the end of their college career, the song is named after their professor from Kenyon College and is meant to symbolize youth. "It's about college, about maintaining that little bit of being a kid," Petricca said. "Don't be afraid to play."
Walk the Moon is an indie rock band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2008 and went through several member changes before finally coming together with current members, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman sometime in 2010. The band derives their name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by The Police. The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun". In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They signed to RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon in June 2012. Their self-titled debut is composed of many of their original tracks from i want! i want! in addition to new tracks that were written specifically for the album and were meant to reflect the kind of energy the band produced in their live shows.
Playlists including Hotchip, Daft Punk, Magnetic Man, La Roux, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sbtrkt, Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix, Keys N Krates, Moby, Rush, Minus The Bear, Simon and Garfunkel, and oh so much more
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
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.
