Hayward Williams: Live at Anodyne Coffee

In our interview with Hayward Williams last month, he discussed his attempts to diffuse anxiety both on and off the stage. He started performing songs in a lower key, slower tempo and even putting himself in sensory isolation before shows. These struggles seemed entirely distant from the stage that Williams stood on to celebrate the release of his new album, The Reef.

Jeffrey Foucault, Live from Andoyne Coffee in Walker's Point

Jeffrey Faucault strums his guitar at Andoyne Coffee on Nov. 16.

    

Wisconsin native Jeffrey Foucault, recorded live at Anodyne Coffee in Walker’s Point on Nov. 16, just a few weeks ago. Strangely enough, it was far colder that evening, so we are enjoying a little respite from that now. Since then he has played shows in the US, Canada, and Europe. Jeffrey’s in The Netherlands at the moment, but he’ll be back in Wisconsin on Dec. 17, playing at Cafe Carp in Fort Atkinson.

The Smoking Flowers: Burning Their Own Trail

In many ways, the story of Kim and Scott Collins of The Smoking Flowers reads like a great fictional love story: love at first sight, musical partnership, Kim's battle with breast cancer, and her recovery using completely natural methods. Their June performance at the Circle-A Café was their second in Milwaukee, a market which they say has always been kind to them. The Collins called in to WUWM@Nite’s Rachel Owens to talk about their musical aspirations and their new album 2 Guns.

North Meets South with Lucette

Canadian songwriter Lucette.

“There isn’t really a specific kind of music that is Canadian,” says Lauren Gillis, whose stage moniker is Lucette. “Because we’re such close neighbors, it just makes sense to draw so much from American music.”

The 22-year-old Canadian songwriter took to Nashville to work with producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson) on her latest record, Black is the Color.

"In a way, I've been working on this story for forty years," says Tom Matthews, author of a new profile of producer Jack Douglas in Milwaukee Magazine called (Just Like) Starting Over. 

"I was fifteen in 1975 and I was the kid sitting in his basement in Janesville reading the back of all my rock albums," says Matthews. "Douglas's name - as editor, engineer, or producer - was on the back of a lot of these albums."

The Memphis Dawls "Shoot 'em Down" in the WUWM Studio

Krista Wroten (l), Holly Cole (c), and Jana Misener (r) make up the folk trio The Memphis Dawls, performing in the WUWM studio with Rachel Owens.

Our studio doors have opened to many roots inspired acts, but few have had the orchestral leanings of The Memphis Dawls. The trio’s sister-like camaraderie is apparent in both conversation and song. Their first full-length release, “Rooted in the Bone,” was released yesterday on Madjack Records. They spoke with Rachel Owens about their Memphis roots, recording, and playing with Jack White. They started by performing “Please Don’t Leave Me Now.”
