The first installment of In Your Ear, a new series presented by JAMinc and hosted by Tim Timberlake, aired September 3rd at 1:00 p.m. on WCVE Public Radio and featured Austin-based singer/songwriter/outdoorsman/biker Mike Lille, the Richmond jazz fusion group BopNation, and North Carolina’s Swiss-born bluegrass trio The Kruger Brothers.
About the Show: For 10 years, local non-profit JAMinc has brought musical artists “deserving a wider audience” to Richmond concert halls and schools. Most of the performances have been within the intimate and acoustically pristine confines of In Your Ear Music and Recording in Shockoe Bottom, where they were carefully recorded on state-of-the-art multi-track equipment. Now many of those performances will indeed gain a wider audience, as WCVE Public Radio will air 13 sessions of In Your Ear, an hour-long compilation of the best of JAMinc’s continuing monthly concert series. The show debuted September 3rd at 1:00 p.m. on WCVE Public Radio.
Host Tim Timberlake and In Your Ear studio president Carlos Chafin are producing the programs, which will feature three acts each week, reflecting the diversity and range of these special concerts. The eclectic selections cover many genres -- including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity. Tune in to the show Saturdays at 1:00 p.m., the next best thing to being there.
