Local Color

Sundays at 7pm

Local Color spotlights emerging artists from all over our listening area, with a focus on those who are pushing the envelope just a bit. Live performances, official releases, demos, and exclusive in-studio performances will all add to "Local Color."

From the Beatlesque leanings of The Spongetones to the perfectly crafted pop ditties of Jamie & Steve, Jamie Hoover is the quintessential 'Renaissance Man' of the music world; a superhero of sorts, leaping over musical heights for the past 35-plus years as a singer, songwriter, musician, and producer.

But what makes an artist want to keep on leaping that high, time and time again? Thanks to a recent conversation with Jamie Hoover about his latest album, Jamie Two Ever, I found the answer to that question.
