2018 March/April

For our cover story, we check in with the ever-evolving Robert Plant and find out what drives him to push the envelope so late in his career, on this his 11th solo album, for which he co-wrote all but one track.

Elsewhere in the issue, we explore alternative modes of income for songwriters, such as patronage models and the licensed busking program that has been implemented by the city of Austin, Texas. We’ll also swing by the home studio of Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn.
