    Chris Shiflett | A West Coast Take (Live at Americanafest)

    BE SURE TO LISTEN TO THE WALKING THE FLOOR PODCAST TO HEAR THE OTHER HALF OF THIS LIVE-RECORDED EVENT
    On today's episode, recorded live from Americanafest in Nashville, TN- host, Robert Earl Keen speaks with Chris Shiflett. Some of you may recognize him as the guitarist of the famed rock-band the Foo Fighters while others (or both) might know him from his podcast Walking the Floor with Chris Shiflett- a podcast in which Shiflett interviews fellow musicians.
    Shiflett was podcasting before it was cool and has spoken with the likes of Merle Haggard, Yola, Tyler Childers and so many more. In addition to his work in music journalism, and his career in the Foo Fighters- Shiflett released his 4th record "Hard Lessons" in 2019.  
    Shiflett's career and pursuits are a path which can might be considered a great crash course in learning about music. His interviews are insightful and warm as he takes a casual yet curious approach with his guests. And his records merge his rock and roll musicianship with his affection for Bakersfield country. You can learn a lot whether you listening to one, the other or both

    I'm With Her | Live at Railbird Music Festival

    I'm With Her | Live at Railbird Music Festival

    The individuals we bring into our lives are sources of happiness, pain, direction, growth etc. Some may be new and other may have been there from what feels like the very beginning. And like that, there stands physical embodiment of the intersection of time and influence all wrapped up into one person, or two… or maybe three.
    On todays episode of Americana podcast recorded LIVE at Railbird, we speak with  Sarah Jarosz, Sara Watkins and Aoife O'Donovan- or collectively known, since 2014,  as the band Im With Her- as they discuss their beginnings on the road before recording and releasing their 2018 record "See You Around"

    Shinyribs | Soul, Surrealism and Santa Claus

    On today's episode of Americana podcast: the 51st state- Kevin Russell. Also known as Shinyribs
    Kevin Russell, or as we've been calling him "the physical embodiment of sound"- was born in the late 60's in Beaumont, Texas. In his formative years- Russell's family relocated to Shreveport Louisiana, where he was exposed to one of the richest hotbeds for roots-based music. At 17 he began to play in various bars and venues across the state and in the early 90's he relocated to Austin, TX. In 1994 he became a member of the cult-classic band "The Gourds" which lasted until 2013. 
    Since then Russell has been performing as Shinyribs- a musical Hoge podge of anything from gritty swamp rock, to smooth soul, to just flat-out groovy songs. Also the purveyor of one of the most fun and entertaining live shows, ever.  
    Russell's timeline exemplifies not only a part of where Americana music started "officially" but hopefully where its going as well. 
    Shinyribs is also joining our host Robert Earl Keen, not only on the podcast but on Keen's annual Christmas tour this year!

    Baptiste W. Hamon | Pour le Salut de la Chanson

    Baptiste W. Hamon | Pour le Salut de la Chanson

    Up to this point, Americana has been defined as American root-based music. What then when the roots grow deeper and expand beyond the borders of the continent? What if the sounds, cadence, and singer-songwriter qualities of Americana are there.. just not the language? 
    Baptiste W. Hamon has been playing and writing music professionally since about 2015. Releasing his first record in 2016 and his second, "Soleil, Soleil Bleu" in April of 2019. Hamon's music is reflective of traditional American singer-songwriter style but innovative in his approach because.. well, you guessed it- he writes in French.
    On Americana Podcast: the 51st State, Robert Earl Keen sits down with Baptiste Hamon to discuss the influence of American songwriters, the surprises of touring non-french speaking countries, his latest record and his thoughts on being considered an "Americana artist"

    Cody Canada | Roots in Red Dirt (Live from Gruene Hall)

    Cody Canada | Roots in Red Dirt (Live from Gruene Hall)

    Americana, for all intensive purposes, is roots based music. Sounds, songs, and stories are as much a part of the region as they are apart of the artist. Although the Americana generally adopts regional sounds and sub-genres and provides a platform with a wider national and international reach, we have to wonder what we as listeners might be losing when not defining a song or a band by where it/they comes from. Geographically where does Americana start and better yet.. where does it end? 
    Cody Canada, formerly of "Cross Canadian Ragweed" and currently of his new band Cody Canada & The Departed"- is a poster-child for the sub-genre known as Red Dirt Country. A form of music developed between Oklahoma and Texas that generally mixes rock and roll-based sound with country-style songwriting. With a style of music that's pretty well-defined as such, does it count as Americana? On Americana Podcast: The 51st State, Canada discusses regionality, influences and his newest work in music education on the first ever live episode- recorded at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX.

    American Aquarium | Road Dogs and Work Logs

    American Aquarium | Road Dogs and Work Logs

    Host, Robert Earl Keen speaks with frontman and lyricist BJ Barham of the band American Aquarium.
    BJ Barham, originally from Rockingham North Carolina, started American Aquarium in 2006. Despite going through a number of members, Barham has stuck with the band through and through acting as the front man and primary lyricist throughout its changes. Touring anywhere from 200 to just over 300 dates a year in its earlier years, BJ recognized early on that in order to have a career as a musician it would take hard work and dedication. Leaving no market untouched, and no stoned unturned- American Aquarium has traveled all over the world and has gained a deeply loyal fan base. With seven records to their name and an additional solo record of BJ's, American Aquarium is is notable for songs lyrically geared towards the working class but backed by Tom petty-esque sound. In writing personal takes on life, and songs about struggling points in the south, American Aquarium's discography almost acts as a musical love letter from one hard worker to another.
