Tucker Martine (upper left), Laura Veirs (upper right), Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood (lower left), and Mark Hollis.

The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Laura Veirs and Bill Frisell have one thing in common: When they wanted their music to sound amazing, they called on Tucker Martine for help. Martine is a composer, a musician and one of the most sought-after producers in the business, known for a mixture of imagination and soul. On this edition of All Songs Considered, Martine shares music from some of his favorite artists — including a sneak preview of Veirs' new album, which comes out in January.
