Steve Earle - FUV Live at Electric Lady Studios - 2015

by Russ Borris

Singer/songwriter. Producer. Author. Actor. There are many words to describe Steve Earle, who has seen and lived enough for several lifetimes. No matter where his muse has taken him, he has tackled every venture with grit and authenticity. His latest album, Terraplane, finds him exploring the rich history of Texas blues. Backed by The Dukes, Steve told great stories about the album, while playing the record in its entirety in New York's legendary Electric Lady Studios. The significance and history of the setting was not lost on Steve, who closed the show with a nod to Jimi Hendrix by covering "Hey Joe." A rollicking set for sure!

He came to Studio A with his longtime cohorts Michael Mark and Jon Cobert to perform songs from his new CD, aptly titled 70, and shared his birthday plans.

Kristin Andreassen is a singer-songwriter-dancer who's been part of both Uncle Earl (with Abigail Washburn and others) and Sometymes Why (with Aoife O'Donovan and Ruthie Ungar). Her new solo album, Gondolier, proves she's more than capable of standing on her own. The woman Aoife and Ruthie call the "Mistress of Metaphor" came to Studio A to perform songs from the album, accompanied by Jefferson Hamer on guitar and Rosie Newton on fiddle.
