Allison Russell joins host Stephen Kallao

Allison Russell just won her first Grammy for “Eve Was Black”, a song from her outstanding sophomore solo album, The Returner. Russell joins us to talk about why the record is focused on the present, what Americana means to her, and how her daughter challenged her to write some “bangers” on The Returner. It’s Allison Russell.
