Jean Philipe Grobler has been singing ever since he was a boy in the choir in his home of Johannesburg. His music also took him to Liverpool to and he eventually ended up here in New York City. After experimenting with a bunch of different styles, he finally found his sound a couple years ago when he released his self-titled EP. The music that came most naturally to him was pop and his songs are immediately catchy and fun as you’ll soon hear. He and his band recently stopped by Studio A to perform a couple of songs from his full length debut, When the Night.  I also got a chance to talk with Grobler about his creative process and musical journey.

The “indefinite hiatus” of this talented trio has officially ended – both to celebrate the new album, A Dotted Line  and to mark 25 years since Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins started making music together. Ahead of their Beacon Theatre show, they talked with me about this latest album and performed a few of the new songs live.

Judith Owen - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Judith Owen is a vivacious, Welsh-born singer-songwriter, who, as a young woman in the UK, was drawn to the '70s Southern California sound of Carole King and James Taylor. She recorded her new CD, "Ebb and Flow," with some of the musicians who backed JT and Carole in the studio, and when she came back to WFUV, she brought along three of them - Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel, and Waddy Wachtel - for a truly special session in Studio A.

Ages and Ages - FUV Live - 2014

Led by frontman Tim Perry, this Portland, Oregon collective released its second album, Divisionary, this year. Harmonies and percussion are just part of the band’s uplifting sound and live is where it thrives. So we recently brought them in to Studio A to perform some of their music and to talk about the new record during this episode of FUV Live.

Warpaint - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

We have been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when they released their excellent debut, The Fool. Warpaint's atmospheric sound captivated us and had us waiting with bated breath for the release of their follow up. Well, the wait is over and we now have a new self-titled release from the band. Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that we expect from the band, but they've also incorporated some new sounds and a more meticulous approach to arrangement. Warpaint recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and to talk about their new album.
