New Zealand’s Marlon Williams sketches a new character for each song of his self-titled 2016 US debut. Williams said, “I don’t really ever sing out of character. Even if it’s a very personal song, once it’s written it doesn’t belong to me.” This song, “After All,” is written with fellow Lyttelton, NZ tunesmith, Delaney Davidson.

The Infamous Stringdusters asked many talented women to sing on this new one, Ladies and Gentlemen. The voices range from Lee Ann Womack, Joan Osborne, and Mary Chapin Carpenter, to more bluegrass and roots oriented artists, like Claire Lynch, Abigail Washburn and Sarah Jarosz. WNRN is featuring the track with Sara Watkins, “See How Far You’ve Come.” (photo from the New York Times, Dylan Langille)
