Amanda Shires is one of the most celebrated recent voices in Americana music. She's a co-founder of The Highwomen supergroup, an accomplished fiddle player and with the new album, Take It Like A Man, has released eight solo albums. Her most recent solo efforts have pushed against the limits of roots music and she continues that trend on this album.

Kurt Vile

Singer-songwriter Kurt Vile makes a return visit to Sound Opinions for a live event at the Goose Island Brewhouse in Chicago. The psychedelic folk singer performed solo on an acoustic guitar for a small audience of fans, while also being interviewed by Jim and Greg about his 2022 album, Watch My Moves.

Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
