Let’s play a game of #WVmusic 'Guess Who,' shall we?

Who is from West Virginia, the son of a Mountain Stage band member, an architect living in Louisiana AND the drummer for seminal indie pop-rock band Beach House? It’s Graham Hill, and we chatted with him about all of that and more.

Beach House just released their fifth full-length Depression Cherry on Sub Pop Records. As for Graham Hill, you can catch his solo music as Roman Ruins and his architecture work with Concordia.  To hear more of their music, tune in to 'A Change of Tune,' airing Saturdays at 10pm EST on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
