Paste Studio on the Road Nashville: Lawrence Rothman w/Amanda Shires, Valerie June, Nicole Atkins, JD Simo

The Paste Studio is back in Nashville this week, streaming 28 sessions live from Jaan’s House, co-presented by our friends at SHOWX. It’s such a gift to be around live music.

Follow along on our Youtube and Facebook channels, as well as right here on, where you’ll be able to go back and listen to all of your favorites whenever you like.

12pm CT/1pm ET – Lawrence Rothman w/Amanda Shires

As a songwriter, performer and producer, Lawrence Rothman has worked with countless artists, including Angel Olsen, SASAMI, Girl in Red, Kali Uchis, Marissa Nadler, Kim Gordon and Courtney Love. Today they’ll be joined by one of our favorites, Nashville’s Amanda Shires.

2:30pm CT/3:30pm ET – Valerie June

Valerie June’s terrific new album, The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers, opens with echoing, broken acoustic-piano chords—the sound of a small, wooden, Southern church. June soon enters with her acoustic guitar, singing in her twangy soprano, “I don’t know how long I’ll stay / No, I can’t tell you lies that way.” Is she singing to a lover about the uncertain duration of their relationship? Is she singing to a congregation about the uncertain duration of her time on Earth? It works either way, especially when she adds, “I’ve had not one regret.”—Geoffrey Himes

5pm CT/6pm ET – Nicole Atkins

New Jersey native Nicole Atkins now calls Nashville home. Last year the longtime Paste favorite released her fifth studio LP, Italian Ice.

2:30pm CT/3:30pm ET – JD Simo

Since disbanding his psychedelic outfit SIMO, JD Simo has released two solo albums, including last year’s self-titled full-length.
