Listen to Studio Milwaukee with Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts

Miles Nielsen

Miles Nielsen

Miles Nielsen and the Rusted hearts hail from Rockford, IL and cite both power-pop and classic soul as influences. (And yes, there is a relation between the singer and another Nielsen hailing from Rockford.) They fit well alongside Dr. Dog or even Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Listen to Studio Milwaukee with Diane Coffee

“A former Disney voice actor and touring drummer for the band Foxygen, DianeCoffee‘s glam rock alter ego is as entertaining as it is thought provoking, taking his name from Diana Ross and a song called “Mr. Coffee” by a young accordion player named Nathan Pelkey. Though he sites Donovan as his biggest influence, Diane Coffee‘s music incorporates an eclectic mix of elements: garage rock, Motown, soul, folk-pop and glam, to name a few.”

Diane Coffee joined us for an insanely high-energy Studio Milwaukee session and interview for our VIP members (what’s that? Find out HERE)

Josh Ritter

Josh Ritter stopped by Studio Milwaukee ahead of his show at The Pabst Theater on Tuesday, May 24.

He played a three song set, including tunes from his new album Sermon On The Rocks.
Ritter recorded the album in New Orleans, but he also spent time in a secluded upstate New York farmhouse to craft the lyrics for Sermon.
Ritter, known for his clever wordplay, filled me in about his approach to songwriting and shared the story of his first exposure to a musical instrument.  Hint: it wasn’t a guitar!
