We were supposed to have Catalina on The Quinn Spinn last April to chat about all things music and more, fresh off of her brilliant 2019 and the release of her record, Multifacética.
And then… COVID happened. Our guest schedule was upended. Great re-shuffling ensued.
So, we shuffled this episode to take place a year later, and it was certainly worth the wait! We welcome the Chilean-born performer to today’s show, where we catch up on a variety of topics — including her COVID adjustments, her new single, “Control,” and a brief look at what’s on the horizon.
They say good things come to those who wait, and that’s exactly what happened while we waited for Carson Sheppard to unveil his new sound.
Hear ‘Sunset Blvd’
It’s that time of week once again!

Fueled by chaos and reckless behavior, Forts Like Vana is disrupting the rock scene with their raw attitudes and live sound. Their honest lyrics, punching rhythms, and loud guitar hooks are catching hearts and fans worldwide.
Joining the bill are Down Boy, the Nashville-based psychedelic funk-gospel trio whose 2020 album, ‘…Let Go,’ features popular tunes like “Can’t Help Myself” and “Under the Light.”
The way we approach life has changed over the last year. “Madeline,” the new single by Trevor Larkin, is a plea for evaluation of that approach, and a reprioritization of time.

Right on time with spring, the fire in our inbox is heating up.
(We mean that in the context of submission quality, of course. We also mean it in the context of our inbox being a raging, uncontrollable inferno of submissions that will probably never be extinguished.)

In a world that is increasingly superficial, we often lose sight of that which takes time to grow.
Hear ‘Under the Leaves’
A little bit of sweet, a little bit of backwoods: that’s how Florida native and country artist Amber DeLaCruz describes herself. DeLaCruz is known for adding a dash of soul to the modern country landscape, influenced by artists including Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, P!NK, and Miranda Lambert.
Joining Amber will be Ross Coppley, the quintessential Southern boy known for his playful disposition, lively stage shows, and sizzling singles like “Rush” and “Til Summer Comes Along.”
Previously, we had announced that Forts Like Vana and King Locomotive would perform a Live from the 615 Virtual Showcase on Sunday, April 11. King Locomotive had a travel conflict arise for that date, and we are working on rescheduling them for later this spring.
In the meantime, we still have a show for you that night. Read on for details!
Here we are, at the end of another five-playlist March. The first four, of course, were all unique in their own right. This fifth one — the Best Of — is difficult to construct by nature.
Hear the Best of March
