I was rather taken with the interview with country noir superstar Gretchen Peters, so I have embedded the associated Spotify playlist for further research and embedded it on the right.
Also from the Sodajerker file:
The 26th Meltdown, a festival packed full of exclusive collaborations, world-wide one-offs and unmissable nights, takes place at the Southbank Centre, London between August 3-11, 2019. This year, the festival is curated by legendary songwriter, producer and guitarist, Nile Rodgers, and will feature a live podcast recording with Sodajerker.
From CHIC to Sister Sledge, Madonna to David Bowie, Grammy-winning hitmaker Nile Rodgers has a track record like few others. Together with his fearless manager and business partner, Merck Mercuriadis, CEO of the Hipgnosis Songs Fund, the pair are striving to redefine the value of songs in the contemporary music industries and change the face of music publishing.
For this in-depth conversation, Nile and Merck will be joined on stage by Sodajerker, the team behind the critically acclaimed Sodajerker On Songwriting podcast, who will endeavour to learn more about their mission, and uncover the complex relationship between the art – and business – of songwriting.
Date: 08/08/2019That is Thursday week. I wonder if I can make it?
Location: The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8XX.
