Listen to Ryan Adams open up about life and hash out new tunage on World Cafe
Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and producer Ryan Adams is back in the music game. After a stellar set at our XPoNential music festival this summer and the release of his new self-titled album, Adams recently appeared on NPR’s World Cafe and had a wide-ranging interview with host David Dye. They spoke about his recent music production process (his own PAX-AM studio in LA), opened up about some of his health issues (overcoming an inner ear disorder), and geeked out about pinball machines (he’s an avid collector), all peppered with amazing live performances with his band, including new tunes off his new album. After his three year hiatus from the music scene, the artist was happy to announce his full return to performing, recording and touring as well as a restored sense of self.
