Shannon Shaw (Shannon and The Clams) Talks with Calvin Langman (The Happy Fits) for the Talkhouse Podcast

The two musicians give a glimpse into their worlds full of collaborations and success in the streaming age.

On this week’s show, we share a talk that took place as a fans-only live taping at Rough Trade NYC last year. Curated by Talkhouse intern Lauren McGrath, the episode sees Shannon Shaw of Shannon And The Clams and Hunx and his Punx chop it up with Happy Fits’ singer/cellist Calvin Langman.

Their revealing backstage convo takes in the time Shannon met Andre 3000; Calvin’s experience having his very first single blow up on Spotify; recording with The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach; and even Shannon’s job working at a mental institution for the criminally insane.
