AMANDA ANNE PLATT & THE HONEYCUTTERS
Susannah Elliott

In this episode we spin local favorites Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters, now with a new moniker and a new lineup, some classic country sounds from New York City -- yes, you heard right -- some good grooves and pop to start your summer, plus some great gospel blues and a Segue Of The Week featuring some prime Staten Island Afro-Soul.

Alvin Youngblood Hart “Folsom Prison Blues” from Red Hot: A Memphis Celebration of Sun Records

In this episode we feature styles ranging from Celtic stomp to gospel blues, and from artists hailing from west Africa and western North Carolina. There’s both heartbreak and redemption in the show, and we’ll drop some knowledge about music promotion and publicity with our DJ For A Day segment when I interview Nelson Wells, founder of Team Clermont from Athens, GA. Plus our Segue Of The Week is a gem featuring a host of master musicians from Mali alongside Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz fame.

Our spectrum of music in this episode runs from latin to jazz, to pop and rock, and our segue of the week pairs a lesser known bluegrass classic with the debut from a banjo prodigy. Also, for our “DJ For A Day” segment, we return to our Purple Prose theme in a new way, pondering whether some of these hyperbolic press releases could be art after all.
