Beyond a Song host Rich Reardin interviews Nashville singer/songwriter Jeff Black.
"His words and voice hold down center stage with a craft so deeply in the artistic pocket that it obscures anything outside"
Hyperbolium - No Depression
Boston's WUMB listeners voted Jeff Black as one of the top 100 most important Folk artists of the last 25 years.
Black's songs have earned GRAMMY recognition, radio chart-topping stats and numerous BMI awards. Although flying below the radar as a performer himself, he has been recognized by NPR as a musical pioneer in the digital age. His flagship podcast "Black Tuesdays" circa 2005-2007 are classic imprints on the format and his catalogue of critically acclaimed albums continues to grow. Composing music for film and television, his credits include numerous indie-film soundtracks and a repertoire of songs cut by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss & Union Station, Waylon Jennings, BlackHawk, Dierks Bentley, Jon Randall, John Oates, Jerry Douglas and Sam Bush. Black has forged a reputation as a true folk troubadour entertaining audiences globally for over three decades. A master songwriter and performer in the tradition of the great storytellers, his passionate, soul driven live performances of songs from his vast catalog are not to be missed.
Jeff Black's latest collection "A Walk In The Sun" features Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Jake Bugg), Jerry Roe (Alison Krauss), Kenny Vaughan (Lucinda Williams, Marty Stuart). Produced by Jeff Black, mixed by Dave Sinko (Chris Thile, Punch Brothers) and is slated for release February 2nd, 2020.
Musical selections include: Bless My Soul, Same Old River, Needed the Rain, Stumbling, Hard Way Out, Rider Coming, The End
