Americana singer/songwriter and manufacturer of fine leather goods Jonny Fritz lets me into his LA workshop to discuss his strange relationship with Lucinda Williams’ 2007 album ‘West’, a record that is (mostly) one of his favourites.
Jonny talks about why there are some songs on the album he can’t listen to, Lucinda’s sporadic release reschedule, the “new-agey” production style of the album and we stage ‘Are You Alright’ as a radio play. We also delve into his disillusion with “parasitic culturalists” aka the “Air BnB people” in Nashville, and why it made him abandon Music City for LA.
