It is always a pleasure to have Mare Wakefield stop by the station and catch us up with her and Nomad's life and work. Formerly from Eugene Wakefield has now lived with Nomad in Nashville for Ten years and says it feels like her home now. She says that East Nashville feels a lot like Eugene.
Their new CD "Poet On The Moon" is an example of what living in Nashville has done for the couple. With help from a Kickstarter campaign they were able to hire Mitch Dane to produce this new album which allowed Nomad to focus on being a musician without the worries of producer too. He says that it really helps to get a few more ears listening to what your doing. With strong song writing "Poet On The Moon" is well worth taking a listen to.
