With a new record Clover Lane (Yep Roc) Jonah Tolchin appeared in the Cambridge, MA studios of WEMF on June 21st, 2014.
JONAH TOLCHIN is a quiet powerhouse of a person. Perhaps diminutive in stature, he is a creative giant - and Clover Lane reflects that. This record will be played many, many times this year in my home!
Raised in a music-filled central New Jersey household by a professional storyteller mother and a father who once ran a record store on the Mississippi delta, Tolchin’s ears were open to music’s potential at an early age — although it took a few years to fully settle in. In 2012, with Tolchin's first full-length album, Criminal Man enjoying airplay at home in Southern New England, Jonah was asked to perform at the Newport Folk Festival. The pivotal experience came at a time when he was beginning to realize something. "Everything I've done since the beginning of my songwriting and performing career has been an evolution," he says, "And I've come to realize that I don't really consider myself a folk artist. I'm not an anything artist anymore: I don't believe in genres."
Chadley Kolb is a special kind of creator. For the last few years he has fronted the southern-style blues rock band which bears his name. Coyote Kolb's breakout album, United State, has helped earn the band a serious following the last few years - all well earned. Much of the praise has resulted in their larger-than-life, soul-stirring sets that climb until Chadley and the band tear the roof off the venue. He came into studio on June 14th and sat down with Outlaw Roadshow host Ryan Spaulding. The conversations ranged from the celebrated past to the exciting new future in front of Mr. Kolb. That new path includes a forthcoming album called, Let It Show. For the first time anywhere, we captured some of those songs in studio.
This, my friends, is like being on the ground floor of tomorrow. And it's sensational!
What a great day of conversation, whiskey drinking and Sega Genesis! Portland, OR's Quiet Life were with us in The Outlaw Roadshow studio in Cambridge, MA on May 31, 2014. It was as they say, a smashing day!
THIS IS ... QUIET LIFE - They’ve toured with Dr. Dog, Alabama Shakes, The Lumineers and Portugal The Man.
Wild Pack, the band's latest effort, was produced by Adam Selzer (M Ward, Blind Pilot, Decemberists, etc.) in Portland, Oregon and was mastered by Joe Gastwirt (Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, etc.) For the making of Wild Pack, Quiet Life enlisted the help of notable Portland musicians such as Dave Depper (Fruit Bats, Menomena), Nathan Junior (M Ward, Dandy Warhols), Laurel Simmons (Alela Diane, Indians), etc., to create a record that embodies the spirit of their live show and in the end, remains true to the aesthetics of roots rock and roll.

The Vision for The Outlaw Roadshow was always a simple one. Find a better way to connect people with music and one other. And in doing so, Ryan Spaulding and Adam Duritz founded an ever-growing community of musicians and fans that continue to come together. They did not expect to impact the culture of music but that's what happened when The Outlaw Roadshow made repeat positive experiences for thousands coast-to-coast. First with festival shows, then with a National Tour, recorded material - and now with a radio show.
The legend continues in 2014 as Ryan - founder of Ryan's Smashing Life (One of the 100 Most Influential Music Blogs in the World" per Style of Sound magazine) picks up the mantle of The Outlaw for a weekly radio program. The Outlaw Roadshow radio set will continue our good work throughout the year and keep the vision and community alive through music. It's more than just songs, live performances and a hell of a lot more than old-fashioned radio.. It's The Outlaw Roadshow Radio!
