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.”

Singer, songwriter, and pianist Roxi Copland performs a rendition of her song "Heavy Load" in the WUWM studio.

With her powerfully raw vocals, a light coat of cherry-red lipstick, and dark curls, Jazz/pop musician Roxi Copland joins Bruce Winter in the WUWM@Nite studio, to talk and perform some songs from her new album, "Truth Be Told.” The album, her first record including a full band, features both gritty tracks like Heavy Load and softer, smoother tracks like that of Don’t Give Up On Me.
