Skylar Gudasz 'Cinema'

Skylar Gudasz has a new record out today called Cinema. The Durham-based singer-songwriter worked with four co-producers, but guided the project herself, playing most of the instruments while recording in North Carolina and at Justin Vernon's place in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. 

One of the album's highlights is 'Play Nice.' While talking with Eric Hodge recently, Gudasz said the song is a statement. "It was a piece of advice I'd gotten about the music industry," she said. "And I was like, wouldn't it be funny if I could make a song out of this?"

WUNC Music and NPR Music present a livestreamwith Gudasz on May 2 at 3 p.m. EST.

Eric Hodge hosts WUNC’s broadcast of Morning Edition, and files reports for the North Carolina news segments of the broadcast. He started at the station in 2004 doing fill-in work on weekends and All Things Considered.
Brian Burns is the Music Director for WUNC Music, WUNC's AAA music discovery station. He has been working within the local music scene for over a decade. On the weekends you might see him DJing at various spots around the Triangle, or digging through boxes of records. He's also the host of Future Shock on WUNC Music and a contributor to NPR Music. He graduated from UNC’s School of Information and Library Science with an MSLS in 2015.
