Prompt Queens is songwriting/comedy podcast. Every episode we write to a new prompt, play our songs, discuss songwriting and the creative process, and invite you to play along at home. Hosted by Emily Dunbar & Hope Dunbar.
Emily and Hope are in The Garden State and writing new songs to share with you! It's been a minute and we've missed you. This is Prompt Queens, my friends!
FAI Field Report 6: Mark Erelli
My final interview from the dance is Mr. Mark Erelli. What a pleasure to get a chance to talk to him after being a fan of his for so many years. Mark (and Emily) and I have met many times through The Listening Room in Hastings, but this was the first time I had the chance to talk songs. Listen in, hear his great song, "The Hitter," and be sure to check out the rest of his catalog after the show. In light of recent events, I recommend his song, "By Degrees" if you haven't heard it yet. Find out more and where he's playing by checking out his website, www.markerelli.com
FAI Field Report 5: Katie Dahl
My friend and FAI roommate, Katie Dahl, is number five of six field reports and it was so delightful to get a chance to talk songs and writing with her on the microphone. Also, Emily and I talk about Katie every third episode probably on an average PQ rotation. Find out more about Katie and follow her on the socials! Her website is: www.katiedahlmusic.com
FAI Field Report 4: Misty River
Continuing our field reporting with new music from artists you may or may not know, this 4th report features U.K. artist Carmen Phalen of Misty River. You are going to want to listen to this conversation because it's testimony to what music can do and how life can flash neon signs to help you along your way. I had so much fun getting a chance to talk to Carmen. Be sure to find out more by following her on Instagram: @mistyrivermusic and her website: www.mistyrivermusic.com
FAI Field Report 3: Darryl Purpose
My third field report is with my friend, Darryl Purpose. We get a chance to talk on mic about his work, his life and music and it was so much fun! Enjoy this episode and look for Darryl on all the socials! His website is www.darrylpurpose.com
FAI Field Report 2: Chloe Foy
Our second Folk Alliance field report songwriter is U.K's Chloe Foy. It was so fun to get to sit down with an artist who I really didn't know and get a chance to hear her talk about her work, her process and her music. It was so much fun! You can find Chloe on instagram, she is @chloefoymusic and her website is: www.chloefoy.com
Woefully late to the party
I just started listening to this show after a friend recommended it and I’m SO HOOKED. Emily and Hope make you feel like you’re hanging out with friends, and that songwriting is something “you too can do!” I started from the first episode and now I’m probably 40 episodes in. I find myself wanting to write songs to prompts and submit songs for their listener submission episodes, but am bummed this show is no longer happening.
I hope one day they make a glorious return to the show. Until then, I am wistfully blasting through episode after episode, and pretending the end isn’t coming. Fantastic podcast.
Please come back, the world needs you
Podcasts are usually a hard sell for me, but this one is amazing. Feels like you’re hanging out with friends, great songs, and a learning experience for any creative, not just us songwriters!
Like fine wine…
They just get better all the time! You’ll want to listen to each week for song writing basics, tips and tricks with engaging bonus banter. These women need their own SiriusXM show!
