Dave's Picks 2015 Artist-in-Residence Micah Nelson gives us a little insight into his unconventional upbring (yes, the one and only Willie is his dad) and into how he juggles his time between painting, animating, and playing in not one, not two, but three bands(!) in this edition of All In The Family. Find out what the multi-talented and very busy artist is up to here.
She may be best known as a dancer and a poet, but it was her artwork that first piqued our interest in Jessica Dessner. After seeing the covers she designed for critically acclaimed albums by Sufjan Stevens and The National, we called upon her to lend her talents to our Spring 1990 (The Other One) release.
Justin Kreutzmann was born into the highly creative if unconventional world of the Grateful Dead. So it comes as no surprise that when his dad gave him a Super-8 film camera back in 1977, his path was set for life. Find out more about Justin's work as a documentarian, what bands he'd love to work with, and of course, what life was like growing up Dead in this edition of All In The Family.
Your fourth and final DEAD COVERS PROJECT pick Noura Al-Mat won us all over with her lo-fi rendition of "Ramble On Rose." Turns out, she's got more than a few Grateful Dead favorites. Find out what being a Dead Head means to the multi-instrumentalist and listen to her other classic covers here.
Virginia-based Threesound brought the house party down (quite literally) with their youthful take on "Franklin's Tower." But their roots in jazz, funk, jam, dance and beyond spell more than just fun. Get to know these college kids on the brink of something bigger right here...
The Grateful Dead have reached Trondheim, Norway! Find out just how sextet The South are spreading their love of the Dead all over Scandinavia.
From the FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound Studios to the San Francisco Sound, Donna Jean Godchaux blends her two realities seamlessly on Back Around, her latest release with the Donna Jean Godchaux Band and Jeff Mattson.

Read all about it here.
