Nice interview w/ Goapele of Oakland talking about different points in her career. Brought back some memories and reminded me to peep her newer music.I’ll admit I am often impressed by Talib’s knowledge of Bay Area music. In this interview she talks about a bunch of stuff and could’ve listened to even more about her process, family, and future plans.
Red White & Blues is a dope anti-war song she did right after the 9-11 attack in NYC. I remember watching her perform this at Frank Ogawa Plaza. I also love Childhood drama (Herbie hancock remix), Romantic, Too much the same, Things don’t exist, and of course the classic from the same album.
CLOSER! produced by Amp Live of Zion-I.
