Listen:Apple PodcastsSpotifySoundcloud

In a change from our regularly scheduled programming, this week we bring you a very special episode dedicated to the life and work of American singer songwriter virtuoso Jeff Buckley. Stephen and Remfry go beyond Grace, the only studio album released in his life-time, to give you a definitive guide to the albums released in the wake of his death. From Jeff’s café days at Sin-é in Manhattan’s East Village to the post-punk experimentation that became a major influence on his unfinished follow up to Grace, My Sweetheart the Drunk, we take a look at the individual elements that made up this most unique and idiosyncratic artist and explore the reasons why Jeff Buckley is more popular today than he ever was in his lifetime.
