“It is not our job to remain whole.
We came to lose our leaves
Like the trees, and be born again,
Drawing up from the great roots.”
― Robert Bly
I wrote up a very important piece for Gapers Block. Have you seen Jessica Hopper’s Twitter conversation surrounding #WomenInMusic? If not, go read it, today. It is so vitally important. I spoke with Hopper as well as Chicago journalist Britt Julious regarding this dialogue.
I also spoke with Jaime Black, founder of Dynasty Podcasts, regarding the podcast’s 10-year anniversary, and celebrating being both the premier as well as longest-running music podcast in Chicago. On August 30, Dynasty Podcasts celebrated with a monumental 10-hour broadcast, featuring a range of Chicago artists and creatives.
Lastly, I interviewed Chicago group The Main Squeeze in advance of their performance at North Coast Music Festival this weekend. Take a listen to their diverse soul and funk sound.
