Earlier this year, the Asbury Park based podcast series Song Story, hosted by area rocker Eric Ginsberg, debuted as a show featuring songwriters telling the true story behind their original songs. As they gear up for their debut season, Song Story has started to leak some exciting teases of what to expect this summer.
Area luminary Nicole Atkins recently sat down to discuss the creative impetus behind single “Girl You Look Amazing” off of last year’s Slow Phaser LP. The advance listen offers up an interesting bit of random ingenuity as to how she came up with the titular melody, and how David Byrne himself assisted in a dream.
