YLDSR listeners have been treated over the last year or so to nearly 50 episodes of the New Music show – insightful interviews with LDS music-makers of all kinds, from the artists who sing your favorite songs, to the folks behind the scenes producing, arranging, and engineering them. It’s been a great experience for all of us at YLDSR to bring you those interviews, and we hope you’ve enjoyed them.
This week, it’s our pleasure to introduce the new host of the New Music Show – Cherie Call. Cherie has been a beloved figure in the world of LDS music for a long time – respected as a supremely gifted songwriter and storyteller by her fellows in the industry and by fans alike. You’re likely familiar with her music, and whether you heard her at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, or on an EFY album, or at a Time Out For Women conference, you’re likely as delighted by this news as we are.
Cherie’s first interview, posted today, is with Scott Wiley, a remarkable producer whose credits extend through many of your favorite LDS recordings and beyond. In Cherie’s interview, she’ll talk with Scott about his latest project, an innovative collection of Hymn arrangements called “Nearer.”
We hope you’ll enjoy many, many more musical adventures as the New Music Show continues to roll. And again, or heartiest welcome to Cherie Call. In her interviews, we hope you’ll feel like you’ve found an old friend.
