Crow Moses on Live From Studio 10 (Sept. 2014)

On his new album, Horse Heaven Hills, Crow Moses delivers a collection of songs that build upon Americana and folk traditions. Though this is his debut under the Crow Moses name, this is not his first foray into music, having previously released albums under the Musikanto moniker. But this is definitely a release that sees the Chicago folk singer expand his ability to weave compelling narratives, imagery and melodies.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.

You may think Chicago’s Esso is just about having a good time and getting people on their feet. That’s partially true. But beneath the Latin rhythms, jazz saxophones and funk grooves lies a socio-political dialogue.

Empires on Live From Studio 10 (09/14)
274 plays

Since they started, Chicago’s Empires have been committed to a DIY approach to music. That, and their hard work ethic has nurtured their impressive output of anthemic rock albums. It’s these factors that have been the key to the band’s steady climb to success. In a short time they’ve played at Lollapalooza, and made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The band’s new album is called Orphan (out this month). We’re excited to welcome the guys back in our studio to hear some of the new songs and talk about the new release.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.
