Join host Laura Jane as she interviews the doers and the shakers that make San Diego's live entertainment scene one of the most bustling and unique in the country. Every week you'll be entertained by great local artists – some new, some seasoned veterans – as they share their story and insights into what makes San Diego the Finest City in the world!
For more than 20 years, Nathan James has been entertaining audiences as a soloist, in partnership with Ben Hernandez, as a member of the James Harman Band, and with his own band, The Rhythm Scratchers. For this episode, he sits down to discuss with LJ his influences, his handmade instruments, and gives a demonstration of his unique washboard guitars.
Laura Chavez is one of the finest guitar players on the planet, and we're lucky to have her call San Diego her home. We managed to somehow lure her away from her busy schedule long enough to talk with LJ about her collaborations with the late Candye Kane, her current project with Nikki Hill, and the dozens of other artists she records and tours with around San Diego and the rest of the world.
Classical pianist Jeeyoon Kim delights audiences with her sensitive artistry, colorful musical expression, and insightful commentary from the stage. In this episode, she joins Laura Jane to discuss what music means to her, why she loves performing, and the inspiration behind her new album, "Over. Above. Beyond."
Originally from Calgary, Daring Greatly headed south seeking bigger audiences & warmer temperatures, eventually landing in Fallbrook, CA. When not on tour, they can be found playing at a number of San Diego venues or festivals. Brandon, Patrick, Dail, and Liam join LJ to discuss their music, travels, self-produced events, and their new video production company.
The Anodynes have been rocking San Diego to its very soul since 2016. In this episode, they join LJ in the studio to premiere three tracks from their new EP, "Catching Waves". And don't miss their CD release party at The Casbah on November 24th!

We recorded more Robin Henkel than we could fit in two episodes, but it was all too good to edit out. So here is the extended conclusion of our interview featuring MORE songs, MORE guitars, MORE stories, and MORE Robin!
