Our guest this week on Art of the Song is renowned singer/songwriter Eliza Gilkyson. Feeling the need to take a break from the socio-political music of her last six albums, the twice Grammy-nominated artist moved her base from Austin, TX to Taos, NM.
We spoke with Eliza about her album, Songs From the River Wind, which she calls her love letter to the Old West. It’s composed of snapshots of the people and places, lives and loves lost and found over her years of wandering the West as a musical minstrel, searching for her heart’s home.
Coming up later in the show, we’ll hear producer Don Richmond talk about the process of recording Eliza’s album Songs from the River Wind, for the Creativity Corner.
