James Burrows and Max Bent have created a catalogue of songs that offer insights into an autistic mind; music and conversation with Letitia VanSant; and Jason Tinney shares from his collection of short fiction, “Ripple Meets the Deep”
This is a story about what happens when an autistic boy crosses paths with an electronic music producer. Two unlikely collaborators, James Burrows
and Max Bent
, have created something together that neither one of them could have achieved alone. They’ve composed a library of songs that offer up a window into James’ mind. Producer Aaron Henkin brings us the story.
Letitia Vansant is a great singer and storyteller. She and her bandmates, The Bonfides (David and Will McKindley-Ward and Tom Liddle) have just put the finishing touches on a new album called Parts & Labor
. VanSant joins producer Lisa Morgan.
Some people are natural-born storytellers, and Jason Tinney
is one of them. Fellow writer Dave Sheinin says of him: “Tinney writes with a journalist’s eye for detail, a musician’s ear for dialogue, and a poet’s feel for the space in between what we aspire to be and what we are.” Jason Tinney’s new collection of short fiction is called Ripple Meets the Deep
, and he visits with producer Aaron Henkin.
