Briston Maroney

Nashville singer songwriter, Briston Maroney tells us about his experience on American Idol. He said it changed his perspective on what he thought he might want out of a career in music.  The knowledge he gained about how the industry worked was immeasurable. 

Briston has put out his second EP, "Indiana," and hopes to have a full-length album down the road.


Sam Morrow

Houston-born, LA-based Sam Morrow started putting out bluesy, boot-stompingly traditional records a few years back. His newest, Concrete and Mud, finds him merging classic rock, southern soul and funk in there, too (in fact, a friend of Morrow’s dubbed it “countrified funk”).

Greg Haymes
Richard Loverich

On Sunday, May 19th, several hundred friends of Greg Haymes gathered at The Egg to pay tribute to a true hero of the Local 518 music and art scene.  The event started with a late afternoon reception in the lobby of the Hart Theatre.  Folks gathered, and greeted one another. Some even donned white stuff on their noses. Thanks, Paul Rapp.

Watch White Denim Perform 'Shanalala'

May 23, 2019

Austin, Texas-based band White Denim absolutely tore through its live session on Morning Becomes Eclectic with an energy and swagger that bent KCRW's airwaves. Technically proficient and loud as hell, the new tracks from the group's album, Side Effects, are best played with the volume up.

K. Ishibashi has kept many instruments and techniques at his disposal — violins and loop pedals and layering effects that give his music a symphonic, hyper-multitracked sound — but the language he speaks is one of profound empathy. It's right there in the titles of albums like 2016's Sonderlust ("sonder" being the notion that others have complex lives of their own) and the new Omoiyari ("omoiyari" being the idea that thinking of others fosters compassion).
