“The magic happens in the spontaneity, for me…” Jo Beth Young.
Episode 10 of The Sam Lou Uncased Podcast features Sam Lou Talbot in conversation with Irish-based avant-garde singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Jo Beth Young. https://www.jobethyoung.com. Here, in this lively & spirited chat on women making music, recorded in February 2021, Sam and Jo Beth have a stab at the marketability of feral songwriters, sexism in the industry, ageism, ritual, landscape, and the power of making alone vs being produced. "Songwriters are very open landing spaces, the songs don’t belong us to us, we’re just tools," she says, “You have a very static kind of door which you’re working with in production. The process of producing and engineering yourself is a form of ritual…”. And on ego getting out of the way: “You have to become that empty see-through vase that the song can come through.”
