Songwriters from the Heartland are the gift that keeps on giving. This week’s show will feature new art released by Tasty Brew favorites Sky Smeed and Chad Elliott so you will want to check it out. It is music you didn’t know you needed!
Smeed was to have been live in the studio with Diana Linn this week but because of the continued spike in Covid-19 cases, the studio is not open to guests until further notice. Sky’s “True Love” elevates the art of the song with pristine sonic production and masterful word-crafting that would make John Prine proud.
Elliott’s 24th studio album, Tangle with the Ghost, is a rich collection of Americana roots songs. It was recorded alongside other Iowa artists at Old School Studios in Auburn, IA with producer/artist Todd Partridge. The record is sonically diverse. Each track is like a painting or vignette reckoning with the dark night of the soul. “Sometimes you must do the things that frighten you the most. That’s why I still tangle with the ghost,” Elliott sings on the title track.
New music also spinning will be from Chris Stapleton, Rigby Summer, David Knopf and more!
