We’re rolling out a new podcast series this week: Life of the Troubadour. For the inaugural episode, “A Girl in Every Port and No Health Insurance,” I sat down with Grahame Davies of The Crowd Scene. And by “sat down,” I mean on a dusty floor in a house devoid of furniture or anything at all but Grahame and me. Grahame and his musical (and wedded) partner Anne Rogers are moving soon into this manse with their two daughters, and the kitchen and bathrooms are in a suspended state of rip and tear. And yes, our conversation echoes over the hardwoods like water through a concrete tunnel.
They say to create something you first have to tear down whatever stands in its way.
We talk about Michael Penn and The Soundcarriers and Picasso and Brian Wilson and Lady Gaga.
