Tor Miller - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Tor Miller released his first EP, Headlights, last month. His impressive debut has a carefully crafted minimalist sound and Tor's mature lyrics have been compared to great acts like Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley. This former New York University student, who is just 21, recently stopped by Studio A to talk with me about his debut EP. He also performed some songs live in studio.  We’ll hear that performance and conversation during this episode of FUV Live.
 

Shakey Graves - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt
Alejandro Rose-Garcia has covered a lot of ground in his young life. An aspiring actor with a deep-seated love for songwriting, he initially spent a few years living between Austin and Los Angeles, while pursuing an acting career. There were some notable successes, including a recurring role on the TV series “Friday Night Lights," which provided him the means to move to New York. Once here, Rose-Garcia found his way to the Monday open mic nights at the SideWalk Cafe in the East Village, where he dubbed himself Shakey Graves. He became a one-man band and soon recorded his 2012 low-fi folk debut, Roll The Bones, in a friend’s Brooklyn apartment.
 

Two Gallants - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali
San Francisco-based Two Gallants is the duo of childhood friends Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel.  With Stephens handling vocals and guitar and Vogel behind the drum kit, the pair create a tight mix of blues, folk, country, and garage rock. Even after 13 years together, Two Gallants continue to push the boundaries of what a duo can accomplish. The band's fifth album, We Are Undone, is possibly their heaviest outing yet, sonically and thematically. The songs' topics range from the ills of consumerism to environmental disaster, and all are backed by pounding rhythms and captivating guitar riffs.

Wolf Alice - FUV Live - 2015

by Kara Manning

At Wolf Alice's gig at Mercury Lounge in late January, the venue was jam-packed for this canny north London quartet with a knack for songs that teeter between stormy lashings and tender idylls. On the basis of two very impressive EPs released over the last two years, Blush (2013) and Creature Songs (2014), Wolf Alice has made ambitious strides, graduating from tiny Camden Town club gigs to behemoth festivals like Glastonbury. They were tapped for the BBC's Sound of 2015 longlist and on the very morning of the Mercury Lounge show, the group signed a major label deal in the States. Wolf Alice's debut album, My Love Is Cool, will be released on June 23 via Dirty Hit/RCA.

by Rita Houston
You may know Rhiannon Giddens as one of the founding members of the Grammy Award-winning band, The Carolina Chocolate Drops. Earlier this month, Giddens released her solo debut, Tomorrow Is My Turn. The album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, offers a feminist perspective of the American roots canon with lyrical and sonic influences spanning from Nina Simone to Patsy Cline.
