A couple weeks back, I had the great pleasure of speaking with a young singer-songwriter out of Nashville, Erin Rae, on the strength of the interview I conducted with Lillie Mae out of Boston Calling last month. (Mae. Rae. Try not to get confused.) Like Lillie, Erin is a blast to speak with. Also like Lillie, she’s shaping the Nashville music scene, which is presently fronted primarily by women. So naturally I decided to treat her like “the mayor of Nashville music” and ask her what makes Nashville such a great place for fostering female musical talent. (Answer: A whole lot! Apparently it helps when women have a supportive environment to make art in. Who knew?)
You can read the piece over at Paste Magazine. I’m pretty proud of it.
