20191014 jessywilsonJessy Wilson was looking for a more rock ‘n’ roll vibe after her former group, the Americana duo Muddy Magnolias, broke up. So, she reached out to Patrick Carney of The Black Keys – It took some convincing, but he ended up producing her new solo debut, Phase. She joins host Stephen Kallao today and reveals Carney’s initial reaction to her demos, and why she wouldn't want to make music anywhere but Nashville. All that, and a live studio performance. On this encore edition of the World Cafe.

Bedouine originalBedouine was born in Syria, moved to Saudi Arabia as a child, and then eventually found her way to the United States – her first self-titled album explored that part of her story.  Now with her second disc Bird Songs of a Killjoy, she has written a song about the section of Los Angeles where she has lived for the last decade – Echo Park.  She talks about that, the many bird metaphors on the new record, as well as performs live.

aubrieAubrie Sellers took country music to the garage on her 2016 debut, New City Blues. She has a rock ‘n’ roll swagger that separates her from the more conventional take on country embraced by her parents, superstars Lee Ann Womack and Jason Sellers. Today, we’ll get a preview of Aubrie’s long-awaited sophomore release, Far From Home, in a live performance from this year’s Americana Music Festival in Nashville – Full of grungy guitars, wailing vocals, and some sweet country twang. That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe with host Raina Douris.
