Mary Gauthier has released "Rifles and Rosary Beads." It's an album full of songs she's written with soldiers as part of the Songwriting With: Soldiers project. Mary Gauthier is one of the key songwriters for Songwriting With. She brought along Mary Judd, one of the co-founders.
Kim Richey loves to write songs. She does it all the time. She also loves to work with other songwriters. She did a lot of that on her latest album, "Edgeland." In fact, eleven of the twelve songs were cowritten with some of her friends. Many of those friends also play on her latest album.
Kim plays songs from "Edgeland" and talks about the collaborative process - Live @ EXT.
If you own copies of "Music from Big Pink" by The Band, "Cheap Thrills" by Big Brother & The Holding Company, "The Songs Of Leonard Cohen" by Leonard Cohen or have seen "The Last Waltz", you already know the work of John Simon.
It's been a long wait for album number two from the Local 518 duo known as The Sea The Sea. This time out, Chuck and Mira have joined forces with Cara and Stephen to form a quartet The Sea The Sea. They've been playing in this configuration for some time. And as you'll hear in the interview, the new quartet worked quite collaboratively on the new album, "From The Light."
