from the show: Ian Felice, lead singer and songwriter for the Felice Brothers, is the guest for the hour. His songs have often contained a complex reflection of our society, and in recent material social commentary moves to the forefront, through a unique surrealist framework. We talk about Ian’s evolving political consciousness and how this makes its way into his songwriting, particularly on the new record Undress.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Freedom Highway is a weekly hour-long radio show where we trace movements of music through times of struggle. Each Sunday evening broadcast is a sonic collage of recorded music, live performances, and conversations with public thinkers and community members. Following songs across borders of race, class, geography and time, we explore how melodies and refrains are reshaped by an evolving chorus of voices, and we ask: how does this relate to the current moment in our community and country?
