E-Chievement Award: Brian Davies
In this week’s broadcast. eTown welcomes award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins and cello innovator Ben Sollee to the newly renovated eTown Hall for a one-of-a-kind musical matchup. For Missy Higgins, the last eight years have been nothing short of a whirlwind. With three No. 1 albums in Australia, multiple Top Ten singles, over one million global album sales and a U.S. gold single, it’s clear that Higgins is showing no signs of slowing down in the world of music. Cello virtuoso/singer/songwriter Ben Sollee is also back with us to share music from his upcoming collection of self-produced recordings, entitled Half-Made Man. Throughout his career, Sollee has been a strong example of a musician that melds music with environmental and social causes, much of what you’ll hear about in this week’s show. As always, it’s an episode full of great music, insightful conversation and, of course, an inspiring E-Chievement Award story. Be sure to tune in!
