New Home Studio Sessions are premiering the week of March 15th! Tune in every day at noon to hear interview and performances from emerging artists like Sofia Valdes and Julien Baker or legends like former Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen who talks about his new collaboration with John Hurlbut.
Julien Baker talks about the making of her critically acclaimed new album Little Oblivions (out now on Matador Records), songwriting, and diving deeper into production for the sound of this record, plus she performs live from home in this Home Studio Session with Lindsey Goldin.
Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen is a towering figure in rock guitardom for his work with Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane.
