Arsen Shomakhov came to us through our friend Carol T.
Arsen grew up in Russia and in 2005 came to the IBC in Memphis where he made the Semi-Finals. In 2007 he won the right to play on the Emerging Artist Stage at The King Biscuit Festival.
In 2008 he and his family relocated to Canada. Since then he has been playing and making fans far and wide.
Arsen will sit with me and discuss his life and career and we will find out what he has in his plans for the future. We will also check out music from his album On The Move.
Then the duo Flesh & Stone take their seat on The Couch.
This is not a blues act by any means, but they have a cool sound and it is one I wanted to share.
The duo is Danny K on vocals & guitar and April on cello. Formed in the summer of 2010, Flesh & Stone is an indie project aimed at creating complex soundscapes and driving instrumentation.
We will speak with Danny and April about their unique music and their plans for the future.
