Revo Radar: La Fleur

Flower Power is taking over the electronica air waves, but don’t fret, this groovy spinstress is anything but mellow.

After gaining popularity in the Swedish night scene, she ranked #6 in Sweden’s Top 100 DJs [...]

Shawn Colvin Live In Studio

Between a memoir, a new album, and a rigorous tour schedule, Shawn Colvin took time to stop by WERS this past Thursday. She grabbed a seat and immediately started feeling around on her fingerboard as we prepared for her solo acoustic session.

Sofia Talvik on The Left End

For thirty-three-year-old Swedish artist and folk veteran Sofia Talvik, it’s all about committing to the cause. For a woman who’s committing herself to a two-year, worldwide tour, a new album, and a voice and personality that never seems to tire, no artist seems better suited to the task.

Revo Radar: A-Trak

If you haven’t heard of “Barbra Streisand”, then I don’t know what the Duck Sauce you’re waiting for. That is A-Trak and he has been rolling the globe for years, his works even being covered on X-Factor and Glee. Well, enough of the puns (for now). A-Trak is just a “Big Bad Wolf” that started [...]

John Fullbright on Coffeehouse

Fullbright’s first studio album, From the Ground Up, was released earlier this year, but this was not his first album.  Contrary to standard industry practice, his first release was actually a [...]

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival

After four days of music, art, and comedy, tens of thousands of Bonnarovians were finally sent home with ears ringing, dust and dirt clinging to their bodies, and the smell of corndogs sitting gently in their noses. Huge plastic bags of trash and recycling, empty beer cans, and random articles of clothing were left scattering [...]
