OPENS THE SHOW - Ivory Tower Project are Mark Regula (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Tony Novarro (guitars, back vocals), and Fernando Menendez (drums. Out of New York comes this band with their classic rock sensibilities. They have continued on despite the loss of original drummer Sal DiAngelo to cancer and founding member Johnny Jace to hear disease. Mark will join us to discuss the trials the band has plowed through and where they are heading.
SEGMENT BEGNS AT THE 45:00 MARK - Also joining us is Maree McRae, a young singer/songwriter from the Nashville area who took her act solo after years of working with one of the big selling bands of the area. On her new album URGENCY, she is joined by Tim O'Brien, and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, who were recording their acoustic album in the same studio as McRae and happened to hear her project in the making. They then joined her on the powerful song, Homefields. URGENCY is filled with wonderfully written lyrics and fantastic music.
