Erin McKeown.

Hundreds of Lions is McKeown's seventh solo album — not counting her involvement in the band Voices on the Verge — and it succeeds in her charming, musically adventurous spirit. It's her first album of all-new, original studio songs in four years.

McKeown has visited WFUV numerous times over the years, but we still had a lot to catch up on in this session.
