Jesse Malin - Words and Music - 2008



From punk-rock to roots-rock, Queens, NY native Jesse Malin has lived a few musical lives. They come through in his own songs, but also in the tunes he chooses to cover (something he's done for years during live shows), and now a few of them make it onto the album On Your Sleeve.

Songs by Bad Brains and Jim Croce are two that made the cut, and during a session in Studio A, host Ben Jones talked to Jesse about picking the rest of the bunch.
