World Cafe This Week - May 21-25: Ashley Campbell, Lilly Hiatt, Soccer Mommy and more!

May 21, 2018

Here is who to listen for this week on World Café with host Talia Schlanger: 

Monday, May 21st – Nashville: Ashley Campbell 

Ashley Campbell didn’t plan on a music career - she initially joined her father, the original Rhinestone Cowboy Glen Campbell, on the road just hoping for a fun vacation. Fast forward several years and she now has a debut album, The Lonely One. She talks about how studying improv comedy influenced her songwriting and shares memories of her late father.

Tuesday, May 22nd – ENCORE: Lilly Hiatt

Lily Hiatt

It's an encore presentation of our session with Lilly Hiatt. Her latest album, Trinity Lane is named after the street in East Nashville where Lilly moved to heal a broken heart while staying sober. We'll hear Lilly Hiatt perform live and tell stories about her father, John Hiatt (yes, that John Hiatt.)

Wednesday, May 23rd – Soccer Mommy

Soccer Mommy is the name of Sophie Allison’s bedroom project, a mix of thoughtful, lush, atmospheric pop. Her songs quickly caught the attention of the music industry, and she had to make the call whether to stay at NYU, or drop out to pursue her musical ambitions. She chose the latter, and we’re lucky for it. She’ll talk about that decision and perform live.

Thursday, May 24th – Donovan Woods

Donovan Woods

Donovan Woods hails from Ontario, and estimates he'd written 'probably 5000 bad songs' before he wrote his first good one. Now, Woods spends his some of his time as a Nashville songwriter penning tunes for artists like Tim Mcgraw and Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum. He explains how he broke into that scene, and performs live.

Friday, May 25th – Natalie Prass

Natalie Prass
