JPR Live Session: Maia Sharp (2021)
The long time Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter joined us to talk about her recent relocation to Nashville, and the tumultuous last couple of years that included a divorce, a tornado, and a rough bout with Covid-19. She also performed a few songs from her new album Mercy Rising.
JPR Live Session: Ida Mae
Husband/wife duo Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean first met a little over ten years ago and quickly bonded over their shared love of old blues and jazz. With the band Ida Mae, they've managed to funnel those creative influences into a modern, exciting sound.
JPR Live Session: Boy Golden
The Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter (aka Liam Duncan) assembled a few friends in his backyard to play us some tunes from the new record called Church of Better Daze.
JPR Live Session: Parker Millsap
Originally from Oklahoma, Parker Millsap has very quickly made a name for himself among the best players and songwriters in his new home of Nashville. He joined us for a remote session to share songs from his new album called Be Here Instead.
JPR Live Session: Rachel Baiman
The Nashville-based singer/songwriter and fiddler joined us to talk about her powerful new album called Cycles, which focuses on the many ways that we destroy and rebuild as people, as families, and as a country.
JPR Live Session: Brett Dennen (2021)
The California-based singer/songwriter joined us to talk about his new album called See The World, as well as his desire for people to get out and enjoy what life has to offer.
I absolutley love to hear these conversations. You can tell that each artist really respects that Eric has spent time with their music and knows where to take each conversation. During covid podcasts have become like seeing live music for me. Big thanks to JPR for making these available.
Great conversations with varied artists
I look forward to the well researched discussions and live song recordings each week. From Joss Stone to Moon Hooch to Chirgilchin, you never know what fantastic artist will show up in your feed.
Real Conversations with Artists
Just heard another stellar interview by Eric Teel. This one was with Joshua Henry. Eric does his homework. He has insightful observations and questions of which the artists are surprised and grateful, as was the case for an experienced talent like Joshua Henry. So exciting to hear his guests truly engaged in conversation, not just spouting the publicist copy! Great work, Eric, yet again!!! ...and I have checked in to Joshua’s talk show, which you brought up. 😃
