Better Than Ezra first broke on the scene in 1995 with "Good" from their album Deluxe. Several other hits on alternative radio would follow. The band is currently on their "Road to Mardi Gras" tour which caps off with the "Krewe of Rockus" 3-day event, the first weekend in March. The band is offering a destination package for Mardi Gras where Better Than Ezra are your hosts during the festivities, including hotel and food. Icon Fetch talks with lead singer Kevin Griffin about the event, having written a recent smash for Sugarland on the Country charts, and his band's classic album Deluxe, celebrating 15 years.Listen Now!

Donnie Iris had a monster hit in 1981 with "Ah! Leah!." Now's he's just released his first-ever holiday-themed record, "Ah! Leluiah!" One of the disc's highlights is a take on Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" in which Iris overdubbed every single vocal part himself - a total of 81 Donnie's on that single track! We also chat with him about his new venture King Cool Light beer.Listen Now!
You hope it never happens, but there are times when things go horribly wrong during a show. Patricia Shih has compiled some of the best stories in her new book, "Truly Rotten Gigs From Hell." We talk with her about tracking down these great tales from a wide array of performers. Especially entertaining is her own story of playing Woodstock '99.Listen Now!
Shelby Lynne is back with her first-ever holiday disc, "Merry Christmas." The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter recorded the disc earlier in the summer. Among the eleven tracks are two new songs penned by Lynne. She talks to Icon Fetch about choosing the holiday songs, how she still loves listening to vinyl, and what she wants under the tree this year.Listen Now!
Lennon Tribute Week concludes with Pianist David Lanz, who has just released "Liverpool - Re-imagining the Beatles." Hardly a straight covers album, the nine songs on the set instead take certain elements of each Fab Four song and expound on it with piano, cello and flute. The result is a collection that is both fresh and familiar. Lanz talks with Icon Fetch about choosing songs from the vast Beatles' library and coming up with unique arrangements for each track. He also talks about his recent visit to Liverpool, where he toured the childhood homes of both Lennon and McCartney.Listen Now!
