This week: Milano, ITALY 10-14-2007
in conversation: Bubba and Dillbilly
Righteous Babe Radio's Bubba Mack sits down in conversation with non-binary song-maker Dillbilly, Julie Wolf, and Briget Boyle (Waxsimile Productions)to discuss the release of Dillbilly's album Chaparral. Produced by Julie Wolf, Chaparral is the tenth studio album from genre-queer songwriter Dillbilly and explores soulful countryfied rock, mournful resonant ballads, and Rust Belt bluegrass join hands and waltz around the bonfire. Dillbilly crafts songs laden with lyrics that investigate gender, queerness, class, privilege, and shame, taking a deep dive into the complexity and responsibility of being a white working-class queer from a red state. Winding tenderly through these introspective tales is an elegant voice that warbles like a jay, world-weary and vulnerable, yet glowing gently with a palpable inner strength. Featuring performances by a coterie of gifted artists, including Todd Sickafoose, Allison Miller, and Daren Hahn, Chaparral is masterfully arranged and recorded; pristine, soft-edged, and utterly enchanting. This conversation will air Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12pm and 5pm CDT.
