Internal Affairs Episode 1: Jake Vroon

Hey it’s intern Callie!

Jake Vroon, "dorm room wonder."

Jake Vroon, “dorm room wonder.”

The first edition of Internal Affairs, aired on 11/7/14, features Jake Vroon, a twenty-year-old singer-songwriter hailing from Grand Rapids, MI. Vroon can be identified as one of those dorm room wonders, producing his first album with his Belmont University roommate Mike Arnoult. They called it On to California, and released it in the spring of 2013.The LP features catchy and sonically diverse tunes about love, moving on, and finding the true meaning of home. “Coming Home Soon,” the second track on the album, tells the tale of a homesick traveler who performs the titular action to be reunited with his love. The main musical theme is dominated by a raging harmonica that almost seems to mimic the waves of the Pacific Ocean, rising and falling over beds of banjo, slide guitar and delicate mandolin.

I am a big fan of Jake Vroon’s style and the boldness of his debut album. One of my favorite things about it is how there is a little something for every listener, whether it be a soulful blues riff, pumping bass drum, or swoon-worthy vernacular. This week I chose “Coming Home Soon” because of the glorious weather and the way this song makes me feel as it plays through my car speakers with the windows down. After listening one time through, I couldn’t get it out of my head, which I take as an excellent indicator that it is there for a reason and is supposed to be shared.  Give it a listen on iTunes or Spotify, and know that you heard it first here on Lightning 100!

Jake Vroon upcoming shows: 12/9/2014 at The End

Wells’ Top 10 Favorite Bonnaroo Videos!

1. #1 has got to be our Apache Relay golf cart video.  Brian the web guy and I dreamed up this idea very late one night at Bonnaroo.  I taped the mic to the back of the cart and we had 4 cameras on this ride.  It will forever be my favorite moment on the farm.

2. This was one of the 1st videos Brian the web guy and I made.  It still makes me laugh.  Apparently there is a lot of poo and drugs in the water…

3. 17 things I forgot to take to Bonnaroo.  You should know I was really into Alt J at the time this video was made.  Alt J…and tank tops.  Pickle?

4. Moon Taxi singing the Bonnaroo song in a ….wait for it…port-o-john.  Anyone who has been to the Roo knows that Port-o-potties aren’t meant for extended visits.  We got this in one shot, I ran sound sitting on the ground.  It was gross and awesome all at once.

5. #5 has got to be The Punch Brothers and Sarah Jaroz playing “Cry Cry Darling” in the radio compound.  Sometimes things just happen really organically and this was one of those times.  Chris Thile of  The Punch Brothers had been mixing drinks for everyone all night and decided he wanted to jam with 19 year old Sarah Jaroz.  I was so happy to have been there for this!

6. This was the 1st time me and B-dub got to meet The Weeks.  We were fans instantly!

7. I loved the Ben Sollee video from CenteRoo.  There were a bunch of folks hanging under the shade tree just waiting for the next band to play The Which Stage, little did they know they were getting awesome seats to a really cool show.  I really like his theory of how the Globe burned down as well.

8. I have never had so much fun running sound for a shoot.  Cheer Up Charlie Daniels cracks me up!

9. We like hip hop at Lightning 100 too!  Chancellor Warhol is one bad dude.

10.  As far as song writing goes, Caitlin Rose’s Shanghai Cigarettes is about as good as it gets.

Backstage at Bonnaroo!!!

Since 2004 Lightning 100 has been setting up an interview and recording studio Backstage at Bonnaroo! We do it with a little help from our friends and today one of them, Lij Shaw, will be joining us live on Lightning 100. Lij owns a recording studio in East Nashville, The Toy Box Studio, and runs the backstage Hay Bale recording sessions. He sent us this list of his recordings this morning. Browse through them, then make a request for us to play during the noon hour on the Lightning 100 Facebook page. If we play your song, you could win tickets to Leftover Salmon at the Ryman Sept 15th. Featuring John Bell of WSP, Sam Bush, Jeff Coffin of DMB, Taj Mahal, Bill Payne of Little Feat, Todd Park Mohr of Big Head Todd, Randy Scruggs and many more!

Here is a link to the full playlist of songs: Bonnaroo Playlist
