Nick Garcia (L) interviews John Maxfield (R) for Arch City Radio Hour.

Nick Garcia talks to singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer John Maxfield about coming back from an early nearly fatal injury to becoming a full-time musician, and how he used a video to reach a wider audience and parlay that into expanding his music career.  He'll play a few new tunes from his forthcoming album.

Songs performed:

Brothers Jeff and David Lazaroff aren't afraid explore new ground.  Their band, Brothers Lazaroff, started out in an Americana/roots vein, but over time expanded their sound to include elements of house music, hip-hop and noise while maintaining a consistent songwriting style.  Since 2011, the brothers, along with a group of family, friends, bandmates and fellow musicians, have put on an annual Hanukkah Hullabaloo.  This year, they continue that tradition on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at Plush on Locust. St. Louis Public Radio's Mike Schrand sat down and talked to them about the event.
More information about the Hanukkah Hullabaloo here.
