Some of the stalwarts of the ‘70s Southern Rock scene, and younger musicians inspired by their sound, will perform Tuesday in a concert to celebrate the Georgia recording studio where Southern Rock was born.   

The band was soundchecking onstage, but back in the green room of Macon’s City Auditorium Monday, a little after 3 in the afternoon, Tommy Talton and Duane Betts were meeting for the first time to play through the Allman Brothers classic "Little Martha".

“I’ll just play my dad’s part,” Betts said.

 

 

When she was a kid, SaVana Cameron says she loved to sing.

“But I never did voice lessons or anything like that,” she said.

She didn’t get serious until her senior year of high school when she landed a solo in the musical "Annie."

“After I did the solo that night a lot of people came up to me and said ‘You have a really pretty voice,’” she said.

The AfroPunk music festival draws thousands to Brooklyn every summer. The celebration of innovation in the music and fashion world began in 2005, and has morphed into an international celebration  with AfroPunk festivals in London and Paris. This year, it made its debut in Atlanta with AfroPunk's Carnival of Consciousness. On Second Thought producer Sean Powers documented the second night of the festival.

Susto is a disease of the soul that has its origin in Mexico. Think of it as a kind of soul death. Sufferers are said to be walking shells of their former selves. But the good news is it can be cured.

Mike Mantione, frontman of Five Eight, stops by for an acoustic set featuring music off their new album, Weirdo Reborn.

In this session, Col. Bruce Hampton recorded at Capricorn Studio.

Col. Bruce is a legend of Georgia music who has been unafraid to wave his freak flag high since the 1960s. In this interview with Chris Nylund and Jared Wright of the Field Note Stenographers music collective, Col. Bruce introduces us to the numerology of Southern humidity and gives us a glimpse of the weird heyday of a late 60s music boomtown called Macon. A note, in this first story, Gregg is none other than Gregg Allman.

T. Hardy Morris has moved some molecules in his day as a member of the very loud Athens, GA band Dead Confederate. In recent years, Morris has turned it down a notch with solo work both quieter and more personal. In this Field Session Morris talks about how turning into your Dad isn't so bad, about work life balance for a touring musician with a wife, a kid and a baby on the way and on the difference between a poet and a songwriter. Produced with the Field Note Stenographers.

In this month's preview of music coming to Macon, we look forward to the holy drone of Lobo Marino, to a tsunami of surf punk from Repeat Repeat, a show from a godfather of lo-fi recording, and to a visit from a veteran of the deep soul scene. With the Field Note Stenographers.
