Woodsongs 829: Elle King and David Wax Museum

published 4 years ago by The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour Vodcast

ELLE KING is a phenomenal performer, songwriter, with an incredible voice and massive personality. Her single “Ex�s & Oh�s� is a hit. It was certified gold by the RIAA, nominated for a Grammy and has over 6.5 million views on YouTube. She received raves at all the summer festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and more. Her debut album 'Love Stuff' on RCA Records marks the true arrival of the young singer/songwriter/guitarist/banjoist as a pop force to be reckoned with. It's frank and fearless, tender and rowdy. DAVID WAX MUSEUM had the breakout performance at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival and made them the most talked-about band of the weekend, with NPR hailing them as "pure, irresistible joy." They released a trio of albums that earned escalating raves everywhere from SPIN and Entertainment Weekly (who described them as sounding "like Andrew Bird with a Mexican folk bent"). Entering a self-described Technicolor world, David Wax Museum's new album 'Guesthouse' melds the band's strong acoustic sound with synthesizers, layers of percussion, and adventurous sonic processing to create the band's boldest studio album to date. WoodSongs Kid: Makinnon Layne is an aspiring musician and actor from Knoxville, Tennessee. This 12-year-old is huge country music fan.
