SPIRIT AND ROOTS EPISODE #7 w/ JASON MCNIFF – NOW UP ON MIXCLOUD

My featured guest on the fifth episode of Spirit and Roots was the one and only Jason McNiff. Here he is performing the track, ‘I Remember You,’ for us live in the studio.


We had a great chat discussing the influence of Bert Jansch, Leonard Cohen and the Hankdogs on his music. And he was also generous enough to share with us an insight into how he approaches songwriting.
