Host Robin Milling introduces singer/songwriter Maesa Pullman. Maesa started playing piano and writing songs when she was seven. She grew up in an artistic family whose roots go back to her grandfather who also played piano and sang. Her dad is an actor who's family sang folk songs, her mom is a dancer, and her brothers both play music. In fact her brother Louis plays drums with Maesa's band so when things get going in the Pullman household, she describes it as a 'soul jive.' On occasion her older brother Jack who plays banjo joins the family band, which Maesa cleverly christened, The Pull.
On her own Maesa's music is haunting with reflective lyrics; a poetic combination of folk, rock and soul steeped in Americana roots. When listening to some of her songs you can just imagine a horse and rider drifting on the plains. She's an old soul singing about the mysteries of life but her youthfulness shines through some of the darker themes.
Maesa performs her songs The Fall, Bells co-written with her cousin Rosa, and Nobody Can Tell joined by Jason Hiller on bass. The Fall has a music video in the works so stay tuned.

When 32 year old anti violence activist Lenore Draper was shot to death while sitting in her car in front of her home in the peaceful Chicago community known as Maple Park, residents became outraged enough to form a citywide coalition of all the antiviolence organizations and comb the neighborhood, going house to house, block by block to find the killer. This was not a neiborhood known for drive by shootings and residents of Maple Park are determined that it not turn into one. At a community rally, residents pledged to "do something!" The question is, what? Two anti violent activists, Toni D. Meekey-Stith, a resident of Maple Park, and Jocelyn Delle Adams, a close friend of Mrs. Draper, questions about the out of control gun violence and discuss what can be done to restore the peace
