Watson Twins "Hustle and Shake"

Happy Labor Day. This is the weekend we might thank Labor Unions for 5 day weeks, 8 hour days, weekends off. The occasional 3 day weekend is always a wonderful time to take a deep breath and recalibrate. Enjoy this last weekend of summer, well unofficially, anyway.

The Watson Twins have accompanied countless artists with glorious backing vocals, likely the most famous of them is the Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins “Rise Up With Fists!!” a song I dearly love to this day. In fact, the sisters are on tour now, opening for Jenny Lewis, and they've also been added to the Pilgimage Festival in Franklin, TN September 21st & 22nd.

Around five years ago, the twins decided to come back to the South, leaving L.A. behind, to relocate to the adjacent state of their Kentucky childhood. Nashville loves them, and I hope they feel the same way about Music City. They were inspired by being here to write together for their latest album, and of course all is graced by their impeccable close harmonies. The song “Hustle & Shake” can be found on the Duo album from last year. Here is the Music Fog recording, Chandra and Leigh Watson, AKA The Watson Twins, from a private session this past February in Nashville.

Logan Ledger "Starlight"

It’s coming up on AmericanaFest, and I gotta say, I am missing the Music Foggers and the zany adventures we always seem to find ourselves in when we are together. Alas, The Fog will not be in the house this year, but WMOT will be broadcasting some cool daytime sessions in cooperation with NPR Music and World Café from the War Memorial Auditorim in Nashville.

Wednesday, September 11th (Wired In series)

  • 1pm: Keb Mo
  • 2pm: Maggie Rose
  • 3pm: Honey Island Swamp Band
  • 4pm: Shinyribs 

Then...

Off to today’s video, from Logan Ledger who is playing this year’s AmericanaFest. His debut album is coming out in early October. He is a native Californian, blessed with pipes for days and an easy way with a lyric. Don’t just take my word for it, T Bone Burnett has signed him to Rounder Records and has produced his forthcoming album. There are already a couple of songs from it kicking around on the interwebs, available as a preview, so I figured today was a good day to turn you on to the next great Old School Country voice. And if you are coming to AmericanaFest September 10- 15 in Nashville, make sure you catch him in performance! In the meantime, check out this Music Fog solo take of the song “Starlight,” filmed this past February in Nashville.
