Amos Lee headed to Nashville to make his new album Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, and the night before its release, he came to Hill Country Live to perform an FUV Live show for us. The full-band set featured most of the new tunes plus a couple of bonus songs, and the stories behind them ranged from amusing to poignant — especially when Amos explained the inspiration Levon Helm provided for the title track and life in general.

Public Service Broadcasting - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

London-based Public Service Broadcasting is a bespectacled electronic duo who call themselves J. Willgoose Esq. and Wrigglesworth. Utilizing clips borrowed from archival propaganda movies, newsreels and educational films found in the British Film Institute and elsewhere, Public Service Broadcasting makes humorous, uplifting and resonant music that is mostly instrumental with spoken samples serving as vocals. Songs have a historic flourish, ranging from World War II ("Spitfire") to mountain expeditions ("Everest") to the advent of color televIsion ("ROYGBIV").

Willy Mason - Live Concert - 2013

Willy Mason’s career has been an amazing series of important connections and relationships (or as he put it, “accidents”). It began with his initial discovery by a friend of Conor Oberst, which led to his subsequent tour with Bright Eyes and the release of his debut, Where Humans Eat, on Oberst’s Team Love Records. Since then Willy has earned the admiration and support of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, collaborated with Lianne La Havas on her Mercury-prize nominated debut, and recorded a few of his parents’ songs with Brendan Benson in Nashville, which resulted in a Record Store Day release. Now he has been signed by Communion Records - the label of Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons - and his third album, Carry On, will be released in the U.S. in August. Willy shared material from Carry On and a couple of his parents’ songs during this intimate and engaging FUV Live performance at The Living Room.

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell - Live Concert - 2013

by Rita Houston

The new album, Love Has Come For You, pairs the banjo chops of Steve Martin with the warm, melodic voice of Edie Brickell. Hear how that combination translates live in this memorable (and yes, funny) FUV Live show where Steve and Edie were joined on the City Winery stage by The Steep Canyon Rangers, as well as the album's producer, Peter Asher.
