Chattanooga, TN – Every once in a while, there is a reactionary shift in the arts. In times of excess, people crave simplicity. Awash in the over production of popular music, audiences were bound to call for a simpler, truer music. With the stellar success of the Oh Brother! Where Art Thou soundtrack, this has become evident to the music business as a whole. The movement of musicians, who found influence and solace in the Appalachian harmonies of the Carter Family, or the narratives of Jimmie Rogers, finally found commercial viability and airplay.

Neil Halstead, singer/songwriter behind the bands Slowdive and Mojave 3, will stop by the WUTC studios on Monday July 15th at 2:00pm for an interview with Richard Winham.

Chattanooga, TN – Time Out has called Neil Halstead "one of Britain's greatest songwriters"; NME said he wrote "the kind of honest, heartfelt love songs men are too scared or too cool to write these days". The six albums he has made - three apiece with Slowdive and Mojave 3 - have been universally hailed as "sublime". Two years in the making, Sleeping On Roads is the singer-writer-guitar player's debut solo record.
