International Women's Day - Melody Pool on Joni Mitchell 'Blue'

Celebrating International Women's Day 2018 by reposting a chat with one of my favorite contemporary female artists about my all-time favorite female artist. ------ Badass white witch of Australian roots music, Melody Pool, wears the influence of Joni Mitchell’s classic “Blue” album like a badge of honour. In a frank and generous conversation, Melody talks about how discovering Joni from an unexpected source helped revolutionise her songwriting, the influence of depression on ‘Blue’, Joni’s European travels, sustaining emotional connections with your own music and how she deals with dredging up traumatic memories and the ghosts of her pain when recording and performing some of her best songs. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it’s influenced them.

Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
