Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield went through a period of personal growth while making her latest album, 'Saint Cloud.'
Earle knows the value of storytelling as a way to find our shared humanity. He used that talent to write the music for a play called Coal Country and make his latest album, Ghosts of West Virginia.
The young singer-songwriter, whose debut album was released last month on Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound and Nonesuch Records, provides a thoughtful explanation of life on his song "High Horse."
Today, you can pretend it's 1993: One month ago, a new singer-songwriter named Sheryl Crow released her debut album called Tuesday Night Music Club, but it wasn't an immediate success.
M. Ward discusses what he's been up to and what inspired his latest album, Migration Stories. He also performs songs from the album.
Danielle, Alana and Este of HAIM joined us for a virtual conversation to discuss the decision to postpone the album, writing songs via voice memos and break down their verses on the song "Hallelujah."
His song "Love, Again" "explores the idea of romance at a time when physical contact is off the table," D'Amato says. The video was shot "in the middle of all the eerie, beautiful emptiness."
From her home in Australia, Angie McMahon talks about the songwriter's romantic ideal of being awake at 4 a.m., winning a contest to open for Bon Jovi and the powerful song she wrote after a bad date.
Marling wasn't planning to release her new album until the end of the summer. But when the world changed, she changed her mind.
The singer-songwriter was doing pretty much everything on his own, until Oh Boy Records heard his debut album, picked it up and re-released it.
