Listening Lyrics Oct 10, 2014, with the HEY-NOWS

The HEY-NOWS join us this Friday, This well known local band finally makes their appearance on LISTENING LYRICS and we are thrilled. Formed by singer-songwriters Lee & Roger, the group features Andrew Sisco (bass) & Nicolo Scozzari (guitars, vocals).

Lee & Roger are both veterans of the Northern California rock music scene, having recorded and played in bands from Sacramento to Redding. Since its formation, the group has been busy playing cafe's/coffeehouses, fundraisers, wineries, and a myriad of other venues & events in the greater Sacramento region.

 

The Hey-Nows! are an acoustic-electric band that weave Power Pop melodies within an Americana landscape to create a new, engaging sound for listeners of all ages. Mixing obscure gems (Big Star, Badfinger, Velvet Underground) with well-known classics (The Band, America, The Beatles), their own original compositions are right at home.

LivE IN THE LOAM presents Robbie Fulks - Oct. 3, 2014 at 3:30PM

KDRT's POP UP show -  LIVE IN THE LOAM, presents Robbie Fulks. A very special guest indeed.

"Mr. Fulks is more than a songwriter. He's a gifted guitarist who has taught for years at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, he's a soulful singer with an expressive honky-tonk tenor, and he's a natural performer. It rings true when he says he's only truly comfortable when he's onstage or when he's totally alone. But what really sets him apart is his songwriting, which is one part artful country, one part artful sendup of country and one part a little of everything else." New York Times

Your host is Dug Deep.

Album of the Week - Thursday 10/2/14 at 6:00PM - "TOLERANCE" by Incan Abraham

This week's Album of the Week is "Tolerance" by Incan Abraham. "If one were to use an album as a guidebook to a proper indie-pop album in 2014, "Tolerance" would be an ideal selection. Sometimes dreamy, other times a direct hit of driving pop...it’s the kind of music that could fill stadiums due to its swells of melody and strong song craft...
