Episode 562: The Traveling Ones

Hello friends! I hope you've all had as little stress this week as possible. If you watch the news or engage in social media, you might have noticed there's an unprecidented level of controversy surrounding this country's new prez. There's a lot of unease among folks worried about their rights. A lot of people turning on each other and attacking one and other on social media. A lot of, "I've been too quiet for too long about this but..." posts on facebook from boths sides of the aisle. Just a quick reminder that you should go out and see music. I did that a few times this week and it totally took me out of that "Oh my God! What's happening now?!?!" state of mind I get in when I'm watching the news or what ever CNN has become. Go out and see live music and it will take out of that head and into the beautiful world of art and creativity. 

My guests for episode 562 are Justin Ahmanson and Emily Villareal, professionally known as, The Traveling Ones. Their debut albuum, Meet Me There comes out next Friday, February 3rd and they're playing a release show that same day at Stubb's here in Austin. They'll also be playing other release shows around Texas so just go to travelingones.com to see when they're coming to a town near you. Justin and Emily and I have a great conversation that takes us from their humble beginnings as solo artists to meeting each other, falling in love and joining forces musically, making Meet Me There on their own and much more. It seems to be working for them. I hope you enjoy getting to know Emily and Justin. I sure did. Let's get down!

ciao! -jg
