In case you couldn’t keep up with the musicians, bands, and artists we’ve been throwing at you all week, here’s a quick recap …
This week, on The Music Meetup, host Elena Childers featured Autogramm, a Vancouver/Chicago-based band! They just released their newest album No Rules, which she spun on the episode—plus, she chatted with frontman Josh Wells.
For BTR Live Studio (at Home), host Jen Meller featured Brooklyn-based jazz musician and composer Jonathan Parker. Jonathan stopped by to discuss the release of his new album The Remainder, his process when composing, and his favorite performance.
On the new episode of When We See Each Other, host Nikkiesha McLeod featured artist Katie Kuffel, a singer-songwriter based in Seattle, Washington. Her album, ‘Alligator,’ came out in March of this year. She spoke with Nikkie about its production during the pandemic, the stories behind the songs, and her experience as a queer artist.
Plus, another new BTR Live Studio (At-Home) featured Michael Cormier—perhaps known best as the drummer in Friendship, or as one of the founders of Dear Life Records. The talented musician/ songwriter who works under his own name offers a lush, folksy take on modern life. Here, he discussed his new record and he delivered a fantastic performance, exclusively for BTR Live Studio at Home.
Finally, our Top Artist of the Week was Jay Wood! Our hosts spun their EP, Some Days (Captured Tracks) the most this week!
You can also watch the exclusive performance from our latest BTR Live Studio (at Home) sessions with Jonathan Parker and Michael Cormier right here, along with previously unreleased At-Home Live Studios with Comfy from back in January:
We kicked the week off with a fun interview from NYC-based synth musician Johnny Dynamite. We chatted w/ Dynamite about new albums, inspiration from his comic book-illustrator/author grandfather, & lots of future tunes.
We then had a track premiere from Alexandra Riorden. The track “The Barrier” showcased her delicate, yet robust vocals.
We also shared a song premiere along with a spooky visualizer from the indie duo Wilder. The track “See Through” was a pop-punk dream and in your face.
And, lastly, we interviewed Devyn Moon who’s cooking up a delicious three-course meal of music for you coming soon!
