Roan Yellowthorn Visits ‘Sunshine Spotlight’

Reality Check’s James Campion has ventured into the world of podcasting with a new, inspirational, and oh-so musical show. You can now listen to biweekly interviews with artists of varying genres, immense expertise, and vulnerable life stories.

Roan Yellowthorn’s Jackie McLean learned how to build character, and teaches others how to build character, simply by being herself. Adding music and art to that only furthered who got to experience such an understanding and such a feeling.

The singer-songwriter, alongside Shawn Strack, embodies the indie rock persuasion when it comes to telling thoughtful, deeply personal, revelatory stories thorough lyrical megrim and surprisingly playful musicality. This duo transcend heartfelt narratives and instead craft soul-stirring soundtracks even amidst intimate inner turmoil and widespread global pandemics. In conversation with Campion for Episode 17 of Sunshine Spotlight, Roan Yellowthorn discuss a new album, new challenges, and new approaches to harmonious tunes.
