To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their landmark album “Civilian,” the duo Wye Oak (Jenn Wasner & Andy Stack) share intimate stories and details about the album’s creation and their musical ideologies with WTMD’s Sam Sessa.
Plus: high quality live performances of their songs “Fortune,” “AEIOU,” “Doubt,” “TNT” and “Its Way With Me.”
For the first time, Jenn and Andy discuss how the ending of their years-long relationship made “Civilian” into a “secret breakup record,” their near miss with a tornado in Texas and how family lineage and traditions weigh heavily in Jenn’s songwriting.
Jenn and Andy gave their first ever radio interview on WTMD’s Baltimore Unsigned with Sam in 2007 (when the band was still called Monarch), and have been part of several WTMD events in the ensuing years. Among them: one of the first evening shows at WTMD’s performance studio in 2014, a sold out concert at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in 2015 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and a free performance at BWI Airport’s baggage claim in 2017.
