Looking for suggestions for new music to try? Or just want to get to know someone better through learning what they listen to? That’s what the Listening Room is all about. Up this week is local singer/songwriter Sam Luna who performs with Shaun Marie as FEATherWOLF.
Whenever I am painting or in need of inspiration I always turn to the artist that helped teach me my first chords on guitar Mr. J. Hardin. His ability to paint pictures with words pairs beautifully with that apple-jelly-butter voice. “Drifter" is one of my favorites from his new album jhardin.net
I’m also a big fan of anything John Prine. Here’s a John Prince cut from The Avenue playlist: https://youtu.be/VtFCUIsl4Yc
I grew up on Motown and old country. I’m a big fan of sweaty, Motown dance parties and "In the Basement" by Etta James & Sugar Pie DeSanto is one of my favorites: https://youtu.be/Aoy6yYaytVg
Sam and Shaun Marie just finished up their second FEATherWOLF album, “In the Living Room.”
“I’m excited for everyone to hear it. We were fortunate to be joined by the virtuoso Zach Harmon on drums and the ever so tasty guitar stylings of Aaron Zepplin. All tracks were live-mixed by sonic guru Aaron Duesterhoeft. This album is a great representation of our live shows that feature, not only our duets, but Shaun Marie and her powerful and beautiful vocals and songwriting.”
Here’s a link to “Got it Good,” a cut off the new album
