Music on the Couch 8/4/2014
Terry VunCannon from Lawyers, Guns & Money came on to talk about The Healing Blues Project, where faculty and students from Greensboro College are teaming with area musicians to work with local storytellers who are clients of the Interactive Resource Center struggling with issues including homelessness and post-traumatic stress disorder to turn their stories into blues songs.
We also heard the LG&M song for the project, Walkin’.
Alastair Greene formed his first blues rock trio back in 1997 and over the years it has included alumni of the Steve Miller Band, Paul Butterfield Band and Junior Wells Band..and that is saying a lot!
The new album is entitled Trouble At Your Door and Alastair joined me to talk about his life and career.
We had a grand time discussing his growth as a musician and listening to songs from the new album…
Go find out which question prompted Alastair to say “Hey, you did your homework, didn’t you?”
Chefjimi Patricola with the Blues411 Report. Back for the first Monday in August to discuss the PA Blues Festival and more…
Alexis P Suter is coming to The Couch for the first time and we are lucky to have her appear a full week before her new album, Love The Way You Roll drops.
Alexis and I sat and talked about her life, how she found music and how she met the rest of the Alexis P Suter band.
Of course we spoke about the influence Levon Helm had on her across the years and I also got a “you did your homework” comment from Alexis…something that always makes me feel like the interview is going well.
And we listened to cuts from the album, which drops on August 12th!
Arsen Shomakhov originally sat on The Couch back in 2012 and then came by during the International Blues Challenge earlier this year.
On this night he returned to talk about his new album Dynamic that drops on August 12th.
We discussed what he had been up to since his last Monday visit and talked about the album while listening to a few songs.
