Artist Interviews Jaimie Branch Interview

Jaimie Branch is an accomplished jazz trumpeter and composer from Long Island, who once upon a time called Chicago home. For this week's episode of the CHIRP Radio Artist Interview Series, Features Co-Director Mick R. caught up with Jaimie to talk about latest album Fly Or Die Live, her connections to Chicago, and how she balances her singing with her trumpet playing on her song "Prayer for Amerikkka pt 1 & 2."

"Music is on the side of beauty. We need to put it into the world however we can." - Jaimie Branch

Fly Or Die Live is available from International Anthem. 

Produced by Mick R.
