Todd Snider is on the happy back end of happy hour at a favorite East Nashville bar, talking about his new album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. Since we last heard from Shawn Mullins on 2008ís honeydew, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter and bandleader has undergone a series of transformative experiences, leading to a second coming for the veteran artist. Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, the 35-year old Texan is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking. Just a few months away from graduating from New England Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music degree in Contemporary Improvisation, Sarah has attracted fans of folk, rock, country and old time music with her voice and multi-instrumental abilities, not only through her records, but also an aggressive touring schedule, sandwiched between academics.
