Erika Wennerstrom (Heartless Bastards) Talks with Ray Wylie Hubbard for The Talkhouse Music Podcast

Two great songwriters from two different generations sit down in an Austin hotel room and compare notes and stories.

Erika Wennerstrom sings and plays guitar and keyboards with the great Heartless Bastards, whose new album Restless Ones came out June 15th. Her band has threads of garage rock, blues and country — and the music of the great Texan singer-songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard shares some of those same sounds. Wennerstrom and Hubbard are also fans of each other’s music, so we put them together for a Talkhouse Music Podcast and they dug deep into their songwriting process and had some laughs… and maybe a cry too.
