In Seattle for his Marymoor Park show with Ray Lamontagne, David was eager to showcase material from Foundling, his second album in 11 months.

21:26 minutes Ray LaMontagne

Ray is a private man. In fact he's so private that he preferred to do his Lounge performance in a studio with no audience -- just a couple of band members, our engineer, and John Fisher. But he was eager to talk about the meticulous way in which he went about crafting album, right down to breakfast each day at a place called Elmer's.

SONGS: For The Summer, Beg Steal Or Borrow

32:38 minutes Ry Cuming

The Australian singer/songwriter/surfer who's just starting to break big in the US, thanks in large part no doubt to his appearance on our most recent Emerging Artists CD. He talks about the connection between surfing and music, his duet with Sara Bareilles, and the 1984 Cadillac convertible he drives to the beach at Malibu.

SONGS: Meaning Of It All, Always Remember Me, Some Kind Of Love, Hallelujah

35:20 minutes Melissa Etheridge

She rocked the Paramount for nearly three hours, then stayed in town to join us in the Lounge the next day.

The longtime frontwoman of 10,000 Maniacs (who left the band and released her first solo album in 1995) is back with an ambitious new double CD, Lose Your Sleep, which features 19th and 20th century poems, inspired by children and set to music. She explains this massive project, plays three songs from it, and throws in one from her archives to wrap up the session.

26:54 minutes Avett Bros

The rootsy band from North Carolina finally makes their first appearance in the Lounge before a packed crowd of adoring fans. They couldn't be more congenial, and their music couldn't be more authentic and engaging. Here they tell the story of recording their latest album, I And Love And You, with uber-producer Rick Rubin, and they discuss the pros and cons of being in a band with your brother.

SONGS: January Wedding, Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise, Laundry Room

24:17 minutes Blue Giant

Kevin and Anita Robinson are a married couple whose Portland-based band Viva Voce put out 5 albums in the last 15 years. Now they've regrouped with some fellow Rose City indie music pals and formed Blue Giant. It's an appealing mix of twangy and trippy, as you'll hear in these three tracks from their debut full-length album.

SONGS: Clean The Clock, Go On, Target Heart
