Milwaukee singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey joined Cindy Howes on Folk Alley to talk about his new album ‘Are You Listening?’ on Righteous Babe Records and play guest DJ for the hour. Mulvey’s new LP was produced in New Orleans by folk giant Ani DiFranco, of which he has been a fan for years. The two became friends after Mulvey opened some of her shows years back. They grew to become collaborators in 2015 when, in the wake of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, Ani covered and helped spread the word of Peter’s protest song “Take Down Your Flag.”
Mulvey spoke of his 25 years as a professional musician in addition to commenting on what it was like to make the new record with DiFranco.
