Karen Dezelle is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California who writes and sings acoustic indie folk songs that stand out from the crowd both musically and lyrically. She has played at SXSW music l and famed venues across the United States and UK, including the House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, Hotel Utah, and The Bitter End. After the success of her 2013 and 2014 albums, Lost and Found and Bloom, Unfold, Wither, Dezelle’s newest EP, Room For Two, pushes boundaries that are extremely personal and heartfelt even for her. The result is superb music and we are delighted to have her back on the show (her last visit was 2014) and hear the new songs and the new successes.
American music is Roddie Romero & the Hub City All Stars . Born out of the Delta dirt, they are rising high off the levee of traditionalism and into the future of Louisiana Music. Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars are a renowned, Grammy-nominated Louisiana band who have been performing worldwide at festivals and venues for over 20 years. It is the Louisiana band and it is celebrated not only for its infectious music and good times concerts, but for their authenticity in performing or recording traditional Cajun and Creole indigenous music. The five guys who make up the band – Roddie, Eric Adcock. Chad Viator, Gary Usie and Chris French are all accomplished musicians, but they go beyond that to living and breathing the music of Louisiana. This is their first time on the show and it should be fun. Hope you like the accordion!
