World Cafe Playlist for 06/22/2021

Jensen McRae joins host Raina Douris

Jensen McRae had a surprise viral hit with her song “Immune” – It’s her imagining of what it might sound like if Phoebe Bridgers wrote a track about getting her Covid vaccine. That parody brought the buzz around McRae, but her new record – in her OWN style – is a showcase of her prolific songwriting and storytelling talent. We’ll hear a live performance of music from that album, called Who Hurt You?, and McRae shares her story.
