Live performance and chat with Janel Leppin
Cello is multi-instrumentalist/composer Janel Leppin's main instrument, but she's equally adept at keyboards, vocals and guitar, creating lush sonic dreamscapes throughout her meditative music. Following last year's dual album releases, Leppin has a new one called "American God,", filled with, as she describes it, "dream-pop vocal works, Persian classical glimpses, and psychedelic reveries." Janel Leppin focused on cello and lots of pedals as she played live on WFMU.

Heya Irene, heya listeners. Still trying to extract the boot in my ass from work. I need to chill ...

Hello, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Irene Trudel:

Hey herb, carmichael, S.B. and KP! S.S., the band is a guy-- Lprogetto. I don't know if he ever put an album out but he has files on Soundcloud. That track I downloaded from My Space ages ago.
  11:17pm KP:

Seance at Syd's! I was just thinking of that
  11:21pm KP:

Author Dave Thompson was just celebrating having written his 201st book
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, KP! I think you sent that one to me. It had been lost in my mess of an apartment, and I just re-discoverd it. I'll be playing more over time now.
  11:23pm Carmichael:

Adequately chilled. Thank ya kindly...
  11:29pm grace gold way:

  11:30pm KP:

First Fairport singer Judy Dyble has a superb track on that. She's quite an entertaining presence on FB
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, I didn't realize that about Judy. Linda Thompson is a rip as well.
  11:41pm KP:

Oh, Linda Thompson I can imagine. Judy is just folksy funny in a indecipherably UK way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm melinda:

This Judy Dyble is lovely.
