My friend Juels Bland joins me for season 2, episode 4 of the Matinees.
Note: Guests are paid something for their appearance, because professional musicians deserve to be compensated for their time. If you'd like to help support the series and the performers, tips can be sent to https://paypal.me/midwayfair and are shared with the guests.
"A singer/songwriter/person from Silver Spring, Juels Bland has performed broadly throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Appalachia as well as countless open mics and coffeehouses here and there. Original lyrics and music full of rich tones provide a thought provoking, penetrating, and (sometimes) uplifting sound conjuring scenes of love, loss, longing and murder."
