"Wedgewood" Now available on Vinyl, CD, and Digital.

McPherson’s latest record, Wedgewood, is a fierce record, inspired by his time in 2011 as part of the Occupy Oakland movement, and it features plenty of material for Disney to hate. The material on the record isn’t strictly political. McPherson mixes social observations with stories of travel, self-discovery, love, and heartbreak. It’s vibrant folk music recorded simply and stripped down, but sprinkled with some backing vocals, piano, violin, and other little flourishes from song to song.

This week's guest is Bryan McPherson - a folk-punk protest singer with an agile and shouted tenor voice, uptempo guitar playing and frenetic harmonica accompaniment that is reminiscent of an amped up Woody Guthrie. McPherson pulls no punches when pointing out the darker side of life in America in the new millennium, and he's as real as they come.
