The Show Ponies Live Session

Ways To Subscribe

The Show Ponies are an indie-folk outfit from Los Angeles with old time and country influences. Their new album, We’re Not Lost, is proof of the rewards of taking a leap of faith. Funded entirely by crowdsourcing, the album is a realization of both their ardent fan base, and the power of setting a goal and trusting the process. What they’re moving toward is becoming one of the hottest Old-Time groups on of the West Coast, with a stellar sophomore album that flirts effortlessly with a modern new-roots sound and a hard driven progressive beat.

The young quintet is comprised of Andi Carder and Clayton Chaney, both Texan-born, who lay the song-writing foundation. The rest of the group is made up of three classical musicians. Jason Harris joined The Show Ponies after producing their last album, and brings his skills as a classically trained composer to the group. Award-winning fiddler Philip Glenn showcases his vast talents in a variety of styles, adding rich support to each track. And Kevin Brown’s innovative percussive skills (and a masters degree in percussion to boot!) add the final piece to this already tight-sounding group.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
