Guitar Center (link), the world's largest musical instrument retailer, and DIRECTV, the world's most popular video service, announced a new episode of Guitar Center Sessions featuring Jakob Dylan. In a series of performances and interviews with host Nic Harcourt, Dylan shares the pivotal moments of his musical career and shines a light on balancing success and self in front of a studio audience.
Supported by vocalist Kelly Hogan and guitarist Paul Pigat (Neko Case), who both appeared on Dylan's 2010 solo album titled Women + Country, Dylan plays tunes from his solo projects, including "Nothing But the Whole Wide World," "Everybody's Hurting" and "Truth For a Truth." The trio also offers a performance of the popular Wallflowers hit "Three Marlenas." Through intimate conversations with Harcourt, Dylan discusses the making of Women + Country and shares his personal experience with legendary producer T Bone Burnett.
"He taught me early on that you've gotta have a good song in place first and get a good feel for it," said Dylan. "The rest of it's not going to be that important. The good ones come together - they just find you when they do." The seasoned songwriter also discusses his work writing, recording and touring with The Wallflowers. When Harcourt asked about their plans for the future, Dylan left the topic open for discussion. "I look forward to doing it again," said Dylan. "Soon, I hope."
