Episode 2: Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers: On barbershop quartets, high school teachers, and misogyny in music.
Description: Some of us have high school teachers we never forget for all the right reasons. The Lumineers vocalist, cellist, and pianist - Neyla Pekarek - tells us about that teacher, and how his influence changed her professional course. Tune in also to hear some early work from her Barbershop Quartet “Vogue,” and for a personal account of just how challenging it still is to be a women in the male-dominated music industry. (Neyla left the Lumineers after this episode was recorded to pursue personal projects).
