As we begin the 2020 Holiday season with this special Thanksgiving weekend episode of BTR Live Studio, we're taking a look back to the first part of the year, back when we still did sessions with artists in person at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn. Here we'll revisit music from sessions with Field Mouse, proper., Wintersleep, Pom Pom Squad, The Joy Formidable, and Momma.
Dolly Valentine, aka the new musical persona of Leslie Schott joins us to play a few songs from her debut album (accompanied by Andrew Valenti) and to chat about the project, and how this year at home has affected her life and music.
On today's episode of BTR Live Studio at Home, London-based indie pop trio KIN plays some of their latest tunes. Grace and Adam speak with Jen about the making of the music video for L.O.V.E. choreographed by bandmate Ritu Arya and fellow Umbrella Academy cast mate David Castañeda. The band explains their writing process and favorite stories from gigs.
Foxanne is a musician originally from NJ, normally based in Brooklyn, but currently back in her home state, where the band is making use of a temporary studio where they've been able to keep working on music during the pandemic. Ahead of a trip to Mars (sorta, really!) Foxanne delivered an incredible duo performance for us and chatted about the upcoming debut full length, making a DIY music video at the beach, musical inspiration, and more.
One for the flow, two for the voice, three for the lyrics and Ke Turner is top choice. Ke Turner and her dj, Dj RedHanded, play no games on the performance level. RedHanded on the scratches goes hand in hand with Ke Turner’s energetic vibe. Tune in as we talk about her career, real life, and traveling to new places to start from step one - making a name for yourself in another region.
Jill Townsend is a Nashville-based musician whose solo project, Fetching Pails, released its debut record about a year ago. Here, she joins us for a conversation about that record and what's happened in the year since, and delivers an amazing exclusive performance of one song from that release plus two new, unreleased songs for us.
From Jamaica to the Bronx, GangaLee’s been Hip-Hop influenced her whole life and has tons of history from being an MC to running DOE Records. She joins Crazy DJ Bazarro to tell her story, and share a raw performance with us for BTR Live Studio at Home.
Sam Burton is an indie folk musician originally from Utah, now living in LA, who has just released his debut record, produced by Jarvis Tavernier from the band Woods. I spoke with Sam while he was on the road back from Austin to LA, and we talked about the record, hanging out on  a pecan orchard, and the effect that moving to LA has had on his songwriting and life in general. Listen in for our conversation, plus three songs from his record, performed exclusively for BTR Live Studio at Home.
