His first single, "Some Place," was recorded in an all-analog studio and released on vinyl. Although his records recall the sound of the 1950s, his style is all his own.<p>On this <em>Song Travels</em>, Waterhouse joins host Michael Feinstein to shares his love of 45 rpm records and raw, live rock 'n' roll.

Morrow is from the South. He's in his early 20s. His songs are almost all influenced by his recent struggle with addiction and the insights of its aftermath. But by no means is the album depressing — particularly the tracks we'll play today. Meet Sam Morrow. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.

In the songs on her debut album, <em>The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas</em>, really two early EPs mashed together, the young Australian singer-songwriter relates with hyperfocus the details of a day and moments of simply average significance. A failed attempt at gardening, an invitation to a friendly gathering, a post-breakup rant, an after-party adventure, a concerned call from mom — this can all happen to you!
