World Cafe Playlist for 08/09/2023

Bully joins host Raina Douris

The songs on Bully’s new album, Lucky For You, are catchy, guitar-driven rockers with huge hooks and sing-along choruses. But listen a little closer, and you’ll hear that Bully (the performing name of Alicia Bognano) is singing touching songs about loss and grief. We talk about how losing her dog, Mezzi, inspired the album, about music getting you through grief – and about how she made that music: the guitars, the gear and more.

Listen to the session here.
