Right now, the air is chilly and a storm is thundering outside… I’m quite content to be indoors, dry, and listening to some great tunes.
I was so grateful to be on my friend Lizzie‘s radio show last weekend. What an honor– she wanted to interview ME for 2 hours about a list of top 10 songs I had picked! We had a blast, and I loved talking about old favorites from Patty Griffin to Andy Davis and lots in between. Hopefully an mp3 of the show will be online soon!
Sidenote about Lizzie: she is awesome. She’s super passionate about nonviolence and making a difference in the world, and it would behoove you to check out her blog.
Oddly enough, tonight my soothing tunes weren’t featured on that top 10 list, but The Civil Wars are fast approaching the top of my “must-play” list these days. If they sound familiar but you can’t say why, you may have heard their tune “Poison & Wine” on Gray’s Anatomy a little while back. A guy/girl duo who have crazy raw talent and rich harmonies, these two have an unmatched sound. Mike and I joke that we will become the next Civil Wars. Look out, guys…
I wanted to share Barton Hollow with you all because it was the song that Mike and I heard them do live on This American Life a couple weeks ago. Now I REALLY want to see them live, because even just hearing them live on the radio was fantastic!
Because they are awesome, The Civil Wars have an entire free cd they will give you on their website. Just hit up the “FREE” tab at the top right, and you can have their “Live at Eddie’s Attic” album all to yourself!
P.S. does anybody else think the guy looks a lot like Johnny Depp??
