Liner Notes: William Greene
In August on KALW, Max Jacobs, co-creator of the "Bay Area Beats" series on Crosscurrents, presents four pilots of a new program he's calling Liner Notes. Liner Notes invites today's musicians to explore the inspirations behind their work. In each hour, Max sits down with a musician to spin the records that made them want to make music. Whether it's the first song they heard their grandmother sing or an unexpected guilty pleasure, you'll hear the stories of the music that matters to them and how it's shaped them.
On this week's Liner Notes he was joined by William Greene, the LA musician and writer who may only be in his twenties, but whose music suggests an old country soul. His music - and his musical choices - reflect a desire to pay tribute to the early American musicians who came before him and to add something of his own along the way.
