Singer-songwriter Charlie Faye makes her first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va.
In addition to her songcraft, Faye is known for her unique approach to touring and performing. In 2010, she made her home in 10 different cities in 10 months across the U.S. In each, she put together a band of local musicians, played shows, and wrote and recorded new songs. The resulting album, Travels With Charlie, reached the Top 10 on the Americana Radio Chart.
World Cafe goes California coastal today with the band Cayucas, the project of Zach Yudin. Yudin performed under the name Oregon Bike Trails starting in 2011; in 2012, the project became a full-fledged band. At that point, the name changed to Cayucas, a nod to the central California beach town of Cayucos.
Last year, Cayucas collaborated with producer Richard Swift for its debut, titled Bigfoot. The album and the group is a far cry from Yudin's original looped electronic songs — and, under Swift's guidance, Cayucas has become a true California guitar band.
