Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)
Every two weeks Sven Johnson releases a podcast episode highlighting a songwriter in the Champaign-Urbana music scene.
He chats with the artist about a song they’ve written, gets their thoughts on recording and playing in C-U, and asks about their non-musical interests.
The podcast is proudly titled Champaign Is Also A Band— a tip of the hat to the 80’s R&B group which reps the city’s name–and so far the Sadorus local has interviewed over 35 artists in the C-U community
ciLiving Storyteller, Erin Valle, spoke with Sven about his passion for supporting local music and peers into a podcasting session with folk songwriter, Olivia Tasch, of The Chickadee Sermon.
You can stream episodes of Champaign Is Also A Band though Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and PodBean.
