We revisit an In Your Ear session with five talented players who had a short but sweet ride as a progressive band called Cadillac Sky. Organized in 2002 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area by lead vocalist/songwriter Bryan Simpson, applying a Texas state of mind to the bluegrass template, the band turned intriguing tunes and solid musicianship, into a meteoric career.

In Your Ear Episode 21: THIEFS; Nu-Blu

Wed, 01/22/2014 - 12:11pm -- WCVE

In Your Ear presents some of the most striking and innovative sounds ever heard in Studio A from the New York based trio THIEFS. Not thieves…but THIEFS. As the group says, THIEFS is a grammatically incoherent jazz bastardization, and as you’ll hear, this acoustic/electronic amalgam is tough to put into words. With drums, bass, sax and vocals, THIEFS take us to places that are both noisy and dreamy. It’s quite a ride, so be prepared.

In Your Ear Episode 20: Atlantic Chamber Ensemble; Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Klein

Wed, 01/22/2014 - 10:57am -- WCVE

Rather than release yet another new album in 2012 , musical innovator and provocateur Beck Hanson decided to release only the sheet music in an elaborate and elegant package called The Song Reader, where he basically said if you want to hear this, you have to play it yourself.
