WNTI Highlights

Nice n’ Easy ….I’m thinking we’re going straight this week. No live stuff and no covers… all studio stuff. Tune in for 60 minutes of all things Bruuce!  www.wnti.org  91.9FM …where Springsteen lives!

This week's episode of All Songs Considered is a journey of sound. Bob has a new favorite noise app, so he and Robin Hilton go on a sonic expedition that includes a spring walk, a gaggle of purring kittens, and a rolling rain storm (thunder optional). As if kittens weren't enough, Bob and Robin also have six new songs to share, including a British band, a Scandinavian band that sounds British, and an American band that sounds Scandinavian.

Leon Bridges took the stage at the 2015 Newport Folk Festival with a great deal of attendant buzz. Drawing favorable comparisons to Sam Cooke from many corners, he'd released his chart-topping debut, Coming Home, just a month earlier. But the 26-year-old soul singer from Fort Worth, Texas, took it all in stride, delivering a set that lived up to its promise.

This week's World Cafe: Next artist is a folksinger who has been living on a family ranch in Montana for the last five years. Her name is Martha Scanlan, and after releasing her first two albums, she embraced a rural lifestyle with no music on her mind. But music came anyway.

It's hard not to use the word "effervescent" when describing the jazzy pop music of The Bird And The Bee. The duo of singer Inara George and producer Greg Kurstin started working together in 2006, and since then Kurstin has worked with the likes of Sia and Lily Allen, while George has begun singing with The Living Sisters.
