E-Chievement Award: Dan Lill and Bill D’Anza
eTown welcomes back Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Dave Alvin this week. Aside from his career as a solo artist, Alvin is known for his work with bands such as X, The Blasters and The Knitters. He has worn multiple hats over his long career as a songwriter, producer, session musician and even as an actor in television shows and movies on occasion. Rolling Stone magazine has called him “an under recognized guitar hero,” and we couldn’t agree more. Also joining us, is up-and-coming musician Max Gomez. The son of an artisanal furniture craftsman, Gomez grew up watching his father, learning the tools of the trade while simultaneously learning his way around the frets of his guitar. The workmanlike quality of his songwriting carries over from his days spent in the woodshed through an economy of words, phrase and narrative. Great live music, compelling conversation and an inspiring E-Chievement Award story await you this week in eTown. Be sure to tune in or podcast!
