Juno award winning singer-songwriter Justin Rutledge joins us on Episode 665 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about his tenth recording “Something Easy”, an excellent album he recorded and produced himself – for the first time. As always, we wrap up the rest of the episode with more of the latest new releases, and this time around we include new music from Clare Siobhan, LittleFox, Tia McGraff, Sophie Lukacs, Maggie Fraser and Jenn Grant. Remember, If you like the artists you hear on this show and want to support them, don’t just stream their music – BUY their music, and then you’ll really make a difference to their income at a time when it is becoming much more difficult to make a living as a musician.
