    Bonus Episode: Bre Kennedy

    Bonus Episode: Bre Kennedy

    In this bonus episode of Salute The Songbird, Maggie chats with indie musician Bre Kennedy backstage at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, where they were both performing. Maggie and Bre discuss what it feels like to be back and Bonnaroo after 3 consecutive cancellations, as well as back on the road. Bre discusses the introspection she did during and emerging out of the pandemic, and how she got herself back to writing new music. 
    Singer-songwriter Bre Kennedy creates music soaked in rich, timeless storytelling with innate pop sensibilities. In 2019, she self-released her Jealous of Birds EP, followed by 2020’s Twenty Something EP, with both title tracks landing on Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday playlist. She released her debut full-length album, Note To Self, in October 2021, which was inspired by her time alone in lockdown and after reading Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. At the end of 2021, Kennedy signed to Nettwerk Music Group. She is currently working on new music and will join Joy Oladokun on her Spring 2022 tour. She has cemented herself as an artist to watch and one of the brightest voices out of the New Nashville music scene.

    Wanda Jackson

    Wanda Jackson

    Wanda Jackson is celebrated as the Queen of Rockabilly, one of the first women to break into the boys club of rock and roll. Discovered at the age of 14, she wasn’t afraid to step outside of the lines musically, and her original sound mixes up rhythm & blues with country & western. Wanda is Maggie’s guest on this week’s episode, and she tells Maggie about the early days of her career, what it was like to be one of the first women in rock and roll, and shares some of the invaluable lessons she’s learned along the way. 
    Wanda Jackson enjoyed a long and successful career singing country and gospel material, but her most ardent fans celebrate her as the Queen of Rockabilly, one of the first and finest female voices rock & roll ever produced. Jackson sang with a passion, fire, and spirit that set her apart from her peers, and tunes like "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad," "Fujiyama Mama," and "Let's Have a Party" sounded as powerful as anything delivered by her male contemporaries. She enjoyed lasting success when she shifted to country sounds in the 1960s, and her C&W sides would reveal the warmth and thoughtfulness of a major talent. 1960's Rockin' with Wanda! is a superb set of rockabilly performances, 2006's The Very Best of the Country Years is a well-curated sampling of her C&W work, and 2021's Encore found her full of fire at the age of 83.

    Erin Rae

    Erin Rae

    Singer-songwriter Erin Rae joins Maggie on this episode to talk about her new album Lighten Up, which has been called “a timeless amalgam of classic pop, cosmic country and indie rock”. Erin tells Maggie about the inspiration behind the songs on the album, which capture newfound self awareness and offer commentary on some of the issues we’re currently grappling with as a society. Erin and Maggie discuss the recording process and what inspired the lush, Laurel Canyon-esque sound on the album, as well as her experience growing up in the South and the impact it has had on her career.
    Nashville singer/songwriter Erin Rae and her group the Meanwhiles emerged in 2012 with a sound rooted in dreamy indie folk, Americana, and '70s pop/rock. Rae issued her minimalist solo debut, Putting on Airs, in 2018, followed in 2022 by the dynamic, retro-pop, and country-leaning Lighten Up.

Wise and fun

Guest choices are great

Guest choices are great, but Maggie Rose’s ‘put-upon’ | victim persona is a bit much.
