Episode 34: David Crosby and Lucy Dacus

Our guests this week come from opposite ends of the life experience spectrum. David Crosby recently turned 75, but he’s not considering retirement.

In fact, he’s stepped up his production in recent years — in October he’ll release a solo record, Lighthouse, and he already has another record to go after that. Crosby talked with Steve about his creative rebirth and how George Harrison inspired Steve’s favorite David Crosby song.

Then (at 32:02) Steve welcomes newcomer Lucy Dacus, a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Virginia who recently wowed critics with her independently released debut, No Burden. Now Dacus is signed to Matador Records and touring with Car Seat Headrest. Dacus talked about how she got to this point so early, while also indulging in a long tangent at Steve’s insistence about her childhood interest in Christian rock.
