30 Days of #WVmusic

30 days. 30 brand new #WVmusic interviews. Join A Change of Tune's Joni Deutsch throughout the month of June as she highlights some of the most wild and wonderful music coming out of West Virginia.

Here's what critics have to say about 30 Days of #WVmusic:

"Local programming that transcends location." - Poynter contributor Melody Kramer, who placed the 30 Days of #WVmusic series next to Mr. Rogers and Terry Gross on the list of "50 Ways to Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act"

"Few folks have promoted the regional music scene like Joni Deutsch... Hats off to Deutsch and her summer help Nathan Thomas for this ambitious project shining a light on so many of the great artists based out of West Virginia's burgeoning indie music scene." - The Herald-Dispatch entertainment writer Dave Lavender

"[It's] bringing increased attention to the state's musicians and helping listeners discover a growing and eclectic indie music scene... While people might more readily associate the state with banjo music rather than indie or punk, Deutsch wants to change that perception." -Current.org's Griffin Rowell

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 Tyler Childers to The World is a Beautiful Place..., The Sea The Sea to Qiet 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.

And today, we are chatting with recent Davis & Elkins College graduate Kaia Kater, a singer-songwriter who traveled from Quebec to West Virginia nearly four years ago to learn more about Appalachia's old-time music and culture. 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.
