In an excerpt from her forthcoming memoir, singer-songwriter Margo Price remembers the early days of motherhood and marriage, their chaos compounded by a late-living musical lifestyle.
  • Brandi Carlile, Allison Russell and Yola have emerged as game-changing artists in roots music in recent years, and on Monday afternoon they were informed that they’d each earned three nominations for 2022’s Americana Awards, in the prestige categories of Song, Album and Artist of the Year.
  • As a writer, I’ve always wondered if applying the adjective “quirky” to artists or their work would be taken as kindly as I mean it. To me, quirky means refreshingly odd, out-of-the-box, free of social conformity. To some I suspect it implies being weird. But we don’t need to worry about that with Little Quirks, the indie-pop family band from New South Wales, Australia. They bring their self-proclaimed quirkiness to Finally Friday From Home this week.
  • Monoflora, the fourth album from Asheville, NC quartet River Whyless draws on the musical values that have made them cult favorites since 2012 - complex harmonies, layered textures and worldly grooves, while letting their folk influences flourish as well. This conversation reveals an especially deep bond of friendship that's endured creative tensions to produce ultimately exceptionally enthralling music.
  • Check out two brand new live sets featuring Little Quirks and Sam Burchfield, today on Finally Friday from Home.
  • We’ve proudly featured the Po’ Ramblin’ Boys recently as an exemplar of the old bluegrass ways playing out by young artists on a modern stage, but they’re not the only band sporting flamboyant vintage stage wear and a close-knit, hard-boned bluegrass sound. And that’s why we kick show #10 off with the new single from the Kody Norris Show out of East Tennessee.
