When he was younger, the Southern singer-songwriter spent more time in recording studios than in school. As this session demonstrates, all that experience paid off. Here, LeBlanc performs folk songs from his debut album, Pauper's Field.
In celebration of his new album, Record Collection, Ronson and his all-star band recently performed a short set on WNYC's Soundcheck at the station's Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. Hear the full show now.
The genre-bending performer is impossible to pigeonhole. During her visit to Minnesota Public Radio's The Current, she played two drastically different songs and sat down for a lengthy interview with hosts Steve Seel and Jill Riley.
The singer-songwriter rose to fame when his song "The Weary Kind" was picked as the theme to the film Crazy Heart. Here, he joins WFUV's Claudia Marshall to play songs from Junky Star, his first album since he and T-Bone Burnett took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song earlier this year.
The soul icon burst back on to the scene this year with Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook, on which she covers classic rock tracks. LaVette joins Claudia Marshall at WFUV to perform two songs from the record and discuss how the project came about.
