In Studio Interview: Leah-Carla Gordone - Web Site

Today's guest was Leah-Carla Gordone, an emerging singer/songwriter from New York City. Leah is a writer of reflective and empowering songs of contemporary life. Her recording Butterfly Child is filled with urban themes. While discussing the differences between the Boston and New York City folk scenes, she noted that living in New York City requires a certain hardness, that Boston is an easier environment. She compared that to her writing, feeling that as she grown as a person she has softened as a writer. Many of her musical heroes are folk and soul artists from the late sixties and early seventies. The recorded music she chose for airplay sampled that era and are tied to childhood musical memories. In studio, Leah sang with emotion and focus. She played a nifty Epiphone Chet Atkins model hollow bodied electric classical guitar that sounded sweet going directly through the board. Today, we also had a brief phone interview with Don White who will be recording a new live CD on Saturday, November 7th, playing solo and backed by The Loomers. Don is a thoughtful and illuminating songwriter whose lyrics we identify with and find relevant to our own experience. The performance at The Black and White Theatre in Middleboro, MA will be a true event, a mix of laughter and poignancy from this very serious and very funny man. On a cold Autumn morning, music turned up the heat to start our day here in MetroWorcester.
