On The Way Up | Episode 18

Jun 6, 2017

In this episode we feature styles ranging from Celtic stomp to gospel blues, and from artists hailing from west Africa and western North Carolina. There’s both heartbreak and redemption in the show, and we’ll drop some knowledge about music promotion and publicity with our DJ For A Day segment when I interview Nelson Wells, founder of Team Clermont from Athens, GA. Plus our Segue Of The Week is a gem featuring a host of master musicians from Mali alongside Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz fame.
