Artist Interviews Khaliyah X Interview

This week, Features contributor Matty G speaks with Chicago-based songstress Khaliyah X. They discuss her new EP Just For the Summer and how recording it during the winter and spring kept her going through the cold weather, her musical influences and inspirations, her interests in healing and herbalism, and her favorite live performance experiences thus far. 

"There's nothing you have to explain to anyone, just believe in yourself and find people who believe in you and create the room that you want to be in. If you have something to say, if you have a gift, you didn't get that gift for no reason. It was given to you to share with the world, so share it." - Khaliyah X

Artist Interviews Woody Goss Interview

This week, Features Co-Director Mick R speaks with Woody Goss, a Chicagoland native who is best known as the pianist and composer of Vulfpeck. Goss discusses his latest solo album, Rainbow Beach, which is a real beach in the South Shore neighborhood, and how a rare birding experience there shaped the visual theme of the album, the lore behind Carolina parakeets and their inclusion in Rainbow Beach's album artwork, and his fruitful year of birdwatching.

"I wanted to make something relaxing. [...] Booker T and the MGs had this song called 'Sunday Sermon' that I had been listening to for a few years and I put this song on whenever I just wanted to just chill out, and I was like, 'man, I want more music like this.' And so that was kind of an inspiration. I need more music with just a live single and a piano just grooving." - Woody Goss
