Episode 1 of the “72 Hours In Newport” mini-season features vintage pop singer-songwriter Kat Edmonson and her endearing track, “Where I Am.” Kat’s song was inspired by a confessor that shares her story of falling in love and managing her significant others’ mental health. This episode deals with intense topics related to mental health. If that might be triggering for you, we suggest not listening to this episode and checking back in next week.

Allison Moorer just released a new book and record, both titled “Blood.” Both works explore the legacy of her childhood in an abusive, addicted household and examine the impact that her parent’s murder suicide had on her life. In this episode, Moorer describes how “Every Breath You Take” by the Police gave her a window into an entire other world of music, and helped her define herself apart from her family.
