The Local Show with Amy Miller — Feb. 1 2018

 Thursday, February 1, 2018
A note from the host:

My Guest on The Local Show this week was Julie Doyle. Julie is the manager and a founding member of The Polyphonic Spree, as well as an owner of Good Records, Lounge Here and Good Pagoda in East Dallas. I was thrilled that she brought in a new song from her son, Oscar DeLaughter, who certainly inherited his mother and father’s (Tim DeLaughter) musical talent! Here’s a fun throwback from The Polyphonic Spree’s 2012 NPR Tiny Desk Concert:

Other new discoveries this week included M’Lynn Musgrove, who has such a powerful voice. I’m loving her song “Lost Generation”:

 

The band McAllister sent me their new song “Stay” and I’m really digging their sound, which they describe as a cross between the Killers and Keane:

 

I also came across a young artist named Sophia Annello and played a song from her new EP, Runaway, called “Won’t Let Go.” You can stream the full EP through her website here.
