Sam Friend, shortly before getting run over by a fire engine.

On this week’s podcast, I talk at length with Miami-born singer-songwriter Sam Friend fresh off his month-long residency at the Living Room in NYC. Friend will be performing at our Sketchy Party at Lester’s cafe in Wynwood on June 30 (to which you are cordially invited). We asked him to play the event because he has the rare gift of writing songs that are easy to like and rewarding to listen to again and again.

In my phone conversation with Friend this week, we discussed his music career through two albums (Secure and Fastened for Daisy Buchanan and Lady Madly); the weather and culture of Miami and Seattle, where Friend lived after graduating from the University of Miami; the trauma of watching the Heat collapse in the Finals; and, finally, Friend’s record in progress, Spirit Mirror. The interview is spliced with music from Friend’s two releases and two new songs: “I M U R” and “Find Fine Light”.
