Since the show began almost two years ago, A Change of Tune has highlighted some of the best up-and-coming artists out of these West Virginia hills with podcast-y chats ranging from Bud Carroll to New God, Rozwell Kid to Coyotes in Boxes and beyond.

But those interviews have been a bit infrequent, and since West Virginia Day is coming up (not to mention A Change of Tune’s second birthday), we thought we’d do something special: 30 days, 30 brand new #WVmusic interviews that range from Morgantown alt-rockers and Parkersburg singer-songwriters to West Virginia music venues and regional artist management and beyond, all of which contribute to this state’s wild and wonderful music scene.

We sat down with Kaia in our Charleston studios to talk about her musical journey, her love of bluegrass and R&B, and her recent feature from Rolling Stone magazine.

Since they emerged in the mid 1990's, bluegrass band The Gibson Brothers have won nearly every award and accolade the genre has to offer; earning a place alongside great sibling duos like The Stanley Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and West Virginia's own Lilly Brothers. But here, they take on the harmonies of Don and Phil Everly, with their own version of the beloved early rock standard "Bye Bye Love." They apear on this week's broadcast of Mountain Stage, alongside Red Molly, Goodnight Texas, Sam Amidon, and Drew Holcomb.
