Latest Episodes

Jaimee Harris - Coffee Break

Our guest on the final episode of the Standing 'O' Project/Art of the Song Coffee Breakis Austin-based singer/songwriterJaimee Harris. Jaimee Harris is poised to become the next queen of Americana-Folk, a slightly edgier Emmylou Harris for the younger generation. Her new album draws comparisons to Patty Griffin, Ryan Adams, and Kathleen Edwards – all writers who know how to craft a heartbreakingly beautiful song with just enough grit to keep you enthralled. Harris writes about the basic human experience, in a way that is simple, poetic, and often painfully relatable. "You keep comin over... I keep goin under..." Harris isn’t afraid to get personal, but her vulnerability never veers into the self-indulgent. Each little confessional gem she puts out there is something the listener will connect to; these are things we’ve all felt, though many of us are less than likely to admit them. https://www.jaimeeharris.com/

Cary Morin - Coffee Break

Our guest this episode on the Standing 'O' Project/Art of the Song Coffee Breakis Native Americana musician Cary Morin. Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America and beyond like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as acoustic Native Americana with qualities of blues, bluegrass, jazz, jam, reggae, and dance. “ ‘Cary Morin is a unique and brilliant guitar player, songwriter and singer, ‘ says renowned folk musician David Bromberg, extolling the virtues of one of his favorite players. ‘It’s hard to pick out what he does best.As a guitar player, I have huge respect for Cary’s style and technique on the guitar.If you haven’t heard him yet, you should. Try to remember that it’s only one guitar.’“- Dan Forte for Taylor Wood & Steel Magazine, June 2018. M...

For the past 20+ years,Lenzwas one of the most prominent female voices of the Rockabilly Revival movement. In 2019 she’ll release her new albumSlowly Speeding,which represents a new direction for the LA-based songwriter and band leader.

Luna Keller - Coffee Break

Our guest this week on the Standing 'O' Project/Art of the Song Coffee Breakis young singer/songwriterLuna Keller. Seventeen years old Luna Keller grew up in a very musical family – her father playing several instruments like guitar, bass and piano, her mother playing the piano and singing. She has been singing in the local choir with her mum since being 8 and started to try out all kind of instruments at more or less the same age. However, it took her five years to fall in love with the guitar, which she learned to play with the help of her father.

Since then she uses her music to express herself and to channel her feelings and emotions – and has found her true passion. http://lunakeller.com/ https://www.standingoproject.com/artist/luna-keller/ The STANDING 'O' PROJECTis aboutfair trade musicstreaming--excellent musicians and exceptional fans taking over the music business.

Thea Hopkins - Coffee Break

Our guest this week on the Standing 'O' Project/Art of the Song Coffee Breakis Massachusetts singer/songwriterThea Hopkins. "Attention, landslide! The discovery of "Love Come Down" (6 tracks) by Thea Hopkins may have the same effect as "Astral Weeks" by Van Morrison, or "Lorca" by the late Tim Buckley. Nothing less"-- Patrick Dallongeville https://www.paris-move.com/reviews/thea-hopkins-love-come-down/ With her 4th album, “Love Come Down,” Boston performing songwriter Thea Hopkins has achieved an elegance of sound that lives up to her poetic prowess. A talent the Washington Post called “a standout writer,” she has created, in just six tunes, a seamless song journey that begins with a gentle invocation (“Love Come Down”), ends with a lullaby (“Until Then”) and gracefully travels to a few dark American landscapes in between. From love ballad to social history, every song is personal. https://www.standingoproject.com/artist/theahopkins/ https://www.theahopkins.com The STANDING ...
