Jason Wilber / In Search of a Song 

In Search of a Song with Jason Wilber. Jason Wilber hosts this extraordinary weekly radio series interviewing World Class musicians about the art of songwriting, their lives and music. Jason has accompanied John Prine for the past 20 years, and performed with many other musicians like Iris DeMent, Greg Brown, Todd Snider, Hal Ketchum, and many more.

Specifically the guest artist's early musical experiences and influences, their creative process, and the stories behind some of their songs.

Most pieces in the series are "Evergreen" and can be played any time.

With thorough in depth interviews, full length songs, and exclusive live performances, In Search of a Song seeks to explore the minds and creative processes of great musical artists of our time. Jason Wilber is the longtime lead guitarist for John Prine, as well as performing solo concerts, as well with various other world class musicians such as Iris DeMent, Greg Brown, Todd Snider, and Hal Ketchum to name a few. Our interviews are conducted in a relaxed, conversational style by host and musician Jason Wilber, executive producer Rich Reardin, and occasional guest hosts. Wilber’s experiences as a professional musician, and his prior relationships and associations with many of the guest artists, allow him to relate to the interviewees not as a journalist, but instead as a fellow musician, and songwriter.

This easy going peer-to-peer tone puts the guests at ease and creates a unique, fascinating atmosphere for discussion, frequently allowing conversations to venture into areas of the soul and psyche not often explored on other musical interview programs. At its best, In Search of a Song gives the listener the feeling of eavesdropping on an artist as they reflect on their inspirations, the secrets of their craft, and what makes their favorite music tick. Rounding out the program are exclusive live performances by the featured guest, recorded in the studio or in live concert performance. Genre's are typically singer/songwriter, rock, country, Americana, Bluegrass, and Folk. Each show is a unique experience highlighting vastly different styles of songwriting, songs, and artists. We hope to bring something new about each artist, and really find out what it takes to write a song, whether from music history, or something brand new. Hide full description
