At Music at Three Pines, we have hosted over 20 private house shows with incredible touring folk and Americana musicians. With the pandemic, we are on hiatus, but want to support these musicians as well as talk music. On this podcast, we will talk about the creative process, self-care, and the difficulties of the music industry.
Welcome back to the podcast. Sorry for the extended break, but we are back and ready to do some more interviews with our favorite artists--this time with a secret weapon. My wife Lisa is handling the editing and she is excellent.
This episode is with Canadian Scott Cook. We met him in Montreal, but really didn't get to hear him until one of the Black Oak Artist pandemic streams--and we were stunned by his humor and songwriting. He played our house series this January to a small, vaccinated and attentive audience, and everyone who was there is now a fan. When you hear him, you will join the ranks. Please go see him live when you can. We talk about songwriting and even how to pronounce "process" in this lively and enjoyable conversation.

Danielle Ate The Sandwich
Today's episode is with the delightful Danielle Ate the Sandwich. We met here in Fort Collins, back when Danielle still lived here, but actually first got to hear her sing in a Folk Alliance showcase. She then played a pretty magical show in our house series and we have been fans ever since. Danielle has a fantastic voice, and she writes great song as well. But on top of all of that, she has impeccable comedic timing which makes her live shows just so much fun. Please visit her website, buy some merch, and join her Patreon page if you can. And when we get back to live music, do not pass up a chance to see her in person.
I met Rebecca Loebe in Oklahoma when she played at the Norman Depot's Winter Wind series. She played our house series several summers ago, and we have kept in touch in between music conferences and tours. She is a thoughtful songwriter with an amazingly clear voice and a delight to see live. I hope you will visit her website (https://www.rebeccaloebe.com/ (https://www.rebeccaloebe.com/)), join her Patreon page, buy some merch and cds. And be sure to check out her Youtube page where she posts videos from live streams as well as her series on life in the music business.
This episode features singer/songwriter Heather Maloney, who is one of our very favorite musicians. We met Heather at Four Corners Music Festival and have been fans ever since. We talk about a lot of topics in this podcast, but first and foremost is her Christmas EP, entitled Christmas Anyway, which you can download https://heathermaloneymusic.bandcamp.com/album/christmas-anyway (here). You can also purchase merch from this bandcamp site, or her https://www.heathermaloney.com/ (website). Heather is also an artist, so be sure to check out the artwork for the EP as well as cards and other merch she has personally designed.
In this episode, I sat down and chatted with Hannah Miller. Hannah is a prolific writer who has placed some of her music in television shows such as "This is Us," and "Sons of Anarchy." She has one of those voices that grabs you from the first word, and on top of that is a lot of fun to chat with. We had a great time chatting about her work, her aversion to touring, and her creative process. We also chatted about her new Christmas EP, which she put together during this pandemic. And it is great. You can find it where you purchase digital music, and you should.
At her https://hannahmillermusic.com/#home-section (website), you can find more info about Hannah, ways to purchase her music, and links to her Patreon account.
Nashville's own Liz Longley sat down with me to talk pandemic management, songwriting, and her musical background. If you have not heard Liz, she is one of the best singer songwriters out there--writing insightful songs performed with a voice that will "wow" you. Her range and expression--on top of those great songs--combined with her grace and genuine concern for her fans explains why her most recent Kickstarter for her 2020 Funeral For My Past album made her the fourth highest funded female artist in Kickstarter history. If you listen to her, you will understand why. I would encourage you to pick up several of her albums, but absolutely this most recent one. It is a keeper.
