The Song's the Thing: An Interview with Robby Hecht

Robby Hecht sings like a whisper, like a hesitant truth that simply can’t go unsung anymore. His songs can invoke starry nights and fog rolling in on the beach. Lights turning off. Front porch silences and morning walks alone. Holding hands for the first time, letting go for the last.

Across his three indie releases, Hecht has distinguished himself as the second coming of James Taylor, a gentler Damien Jurado. But, whatever the comparison, it’s hard to miss that his…

The Infamous Stringdusters tour so much that they even have their own festival, the Festy, with a fabulous lineup including our alumni, New Country Rehab. Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall are so in sync that they alternate answering questions and finish each others' sentences. For their fifth album, Let It Go, the…

Jillpoke Bohemia: An Interview with the Author, Conducted by Himself - Part 2

Let’s talk about the music behind Jillpoke Bohemia. Webcomics don’t typically have soundtracks, but one can imagine that a Jillpoke Bohemia soundtrack might sound pretty cool.

What Happens When a Band on the Rise Finds Out Its Name Is an Obscure Racial Stereotype? Meet Parsonsfield (Formerly Poor Old Shine).

For Poor Old Shine, it started with a song… a traditional prison work song of the American South, called “Ain’t No Cane on This Brazos.” It’s been interpreted by everyone from Dylan and the Band, to the Low Anthem, Lyle Lovett and the Wood Brothers. And it was the song in one of the great scenes in the movie “Festival Express,” as a completely blotto Rick Danko and Janis Joplin warbled their way through it with the help of Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir on…
