Lake Street Dive bassist and native Iowan Bridget Kearney appeared with her band on the 'Colbert Report' this week. She says that the bump in attention after the appearance was immediate and significant. 'River to River' host Ben Kieffer talks with Kearney in this final segment of a 'News Buzz' edition of the program.
And here is the video of their appearance on the Colbert Report:
Minnesota Singer/Songwriter Mason Jennings has been performing for almost two decades. Over the years he's recorded for record labels run by Jack Johnson and Isaac Brock of the band Modest Mouse. For his latest record, called "Always Been," Jennings recruited Iowa music veteran Bo Ramsey to produce. Jennings stopped by IPR earlier this fall to talk to Clay Masters about his new record. "Always Been" is this week's "CD of the Week" on Studio One.
