Lake Street Dive Motorboats into the Big Time

The usual pleasantries open the interview with Lake Street Dive's singer extraordinaire, Rachael Price. There’s a mention of a shared acquaintance and a nod to the band's previous appearances in town, the first before a tiny crowd at Norfolk's Taphouse in 2011. "Oh, I recall," Price says. "That was a very memorable show."I push the comment aside, deciding to return to it at the end of the interview. It's been a memorable year since Lake Street Dive played Norfolk in the 80/20 Burger Bar last…See More

Bruce Springsteen's Revival Show

The question came crossing the parking lot, barely out of Hampton Coliseum that January night in 1985. "So, do you have someone for your extra ticket tomorrow night?



She had turned it down weeks ago, saying she was sure Bruce was great, but she could not imagine seeing someone, anyone, two nights in a row. After three heart-pounding, fist-pumping hours, and 27 songs, she'd been converted. But, she knew the answer. It was too late. I had another date.

Since then,…

Hi Jim

 

      As a featured contributor to No Depression, I’m particularly keen on getting your feedback for the following – Please forgive the intrusion if you don’t have the time or inclination to reply.

 

      I’ve posted the following to the No Depression discussion board – you can either respond there or alternatively drop me a line at shatchsurvey1@yahoo.co.uk

 

Thanks very much for your time

Kind regards,

Steve

 

 

 

My name is Steve Hatch and I’m currently conducting research for my Master’s in Songwriting at Bath Spa University in Bath, England (though I happen to be an ex-pat Georgia boy).  I would be extremely grateful if you could find the time to listen to the track (link below) and answer the 2 accompanying questions.  The more detail, the better of course (more to say in my final analysis) – but all feedback will be useful and very much appreciated.

 

Sadly, as this is an academic pursuit, there is a deadline.  Please reply by May 20th if at all possible so that I can have time to chew over your response and include it in my final write-up.

 

            The track: http://soundcloud.com/stevehatch

 

1)     Which artist/band(s) would you say the track is most similar to and why?

 

2)     Which genre(s) would you say the track belongs to and why?

I don't always agree with you regarding what makes a songwriter exemplary, but your own writing is superb. The Lori McKenna review could be used as an example of concise, clear reporting in masters writing courses. You handled the Warner transition with insight and diplomacy. Your descriptions of her life and her writing are poetically brief.

Just saying.

Hi Jim, thanks for the add. Enjoyed the Caroline Herring review; actually I picked this up at Birdland after I read your rants and raves review a couple of weeks ago. Haven't had the opportunity to sit down and give it a good listen. Hope to do so shortly. Best, Marc
