Mark Erelli discusses his Mixtape on Nine Volt Heart.

Mark Erelli has just released a collection of some of his favorite songs by other artists. Growing up in the time between LP’s and CD’s makes him a member of that generation that embraced the cassette tape! While I am a fair bit older than Mark, I also fondly recall the time spent with my finger on the record button waiting expectantly for a favorite to played on the radio. While digitized music has simplified the process dramatically, the art of “curating” a mixtape in any format still exists. We talk about the songs he chose for his latest release and the live “Under the Covers” concert series that inspired these songs. Mark is bringing his band along with strings to his Parlor Room show on March 22. Listen to our conversation and three songs from his catalog here:
