Listen to lead singer and songwriter Robin Pecknold as he explores the effect Glen Campbell’s recording of Brian Wilson penned “Guess I’m Dumb” had on his songwriting.  And you’re definitely going to dig his theory as to why music is such an effective emotion transmitter.

Austin singer-songwriter Suzanna Choffel  describes the vibe behind Reggae music and shares how Bob Marley exposed her to the magic of chasing suffering with love. While she grew up hearing hints of this sound from Sublime and The Police, it wasn’t until Bob Marley that the voice and vibe of reggae taught her how to express the jarring truth in a beautiful, poetic, and gentle way. Step out of the world of chaos, and for a moment be reminded by reggae that, while so much is happening, there is also so much space; every little piece has it’s part.
