Now and Then AT HOME: Vulnerability and Inspiration - Billie Eilish, Daniel Johnston, Joni Mitchell
Original air date May 1, 2021 | Time 58:00
Vulnerability and authenticity are the most desirable traits for a singer-songwriter. Billie Eilish Billie Eilish swept the Grammys in 2019 when she was only 17 years old. She is releasing her second album on July 30, 2021 but I can play you the first single from it "Your Power". The Austin musician Daniel Johnston began his music making at home on his boom box and handed out free cassettes on the street. When Kurt Cobain wore a t-shirt to a music award ceremony featuring the artwork of Daniel Johnston he launched his career. I end the program with songs from the impressive catalog of Joni Mitchell. She describes her interior world with lyricism and depth. She is my favorite singer-songwriter and I have learned many of her songs and guitar techniques. At the very end of the program I offer you an original song of my own "Sleeping Outside". Check it out every Sat at 3pm "Now and Then" on https://WJFFRadio.org or 90.5fm Radio Catskill.
