E-Chievement Award: Joshua Williams
eTown welcomes two newcomers to the stage this week: South Carolina based indie rock band Band of Horses joins us with a blend of woodsy midtempo rock and reverb-laden vocals. Their unique southern indie sound is the collaborative effort of the band’s five members, with each member contributing to the songwriting process. Also joining us is the legendary Colin Hay. Originally known as the lead vocalist for Men at Work, this Scottish-born Australian musician and actor brings a distinct set of pared down acoustic pop-rock songs. It’s a show full of music and conversation, plus a great E-Chievement Award story honoring someone who dedicated himself to ending world hunger, all before the age of five.
