This Song: Citizen Cope

Posted by on Apr 26, 2019

Clarence Greenwood is Citizen Cope,  an American singer-songwriter who has been making entrancing blends of rock and soul music since the early 2000’s.

In this episode Citizen Cope details how his emotional connections to legends such as Randy Newman and Trouble Funk aided his understanding of the powerful energy that music can have. Cope then goes on to discusses how his experiences of the last seven years — which include reconciling with his estranged father and becoming a parent himself —  led him to the songs on his latest record “Heroin and Helicopters.”

Then listen as he explains why he wanted to explore his own complex emotional journey on his latest record “Ride Waves.”

Strand of Oaks 4.16.19

Posted by on Apr 19, 2019

Timothy Showalter, a singer-songwriter from Philadelphia, is the front man for folk-rock ensemble Strand of Oaks. On tour showcasing his latest project Eraser-land, Strand of Oaks balances slow and heartbreaking lyricism withdrawn and booming instrumentation to form a truly authentic sound for listeners. Timothy takes this instrumentation through sobering pain and nostalgic anguish to deliver intensive songs detailing relational issues, growing old and lonely, and coloring depression. It’s a feat that is incredibly difficult to even discuss, let alone to write and sing about. However, Strand of Oaks does simply that, and without even knowing it you find yourself recalling similar memories from a not so distant past alongside with him. What a beautiful thing to behold.

To listen to this unique and heartfelt sound check out Strand of Oaks full Studio 1A interview and session below, and to listen to their newest record, “Eraserland” click here.
