Mount Moriah’s Heather McEntire On 3 Musicians She's Loving Right Now

You may know Heather McEntire as the vocalist and guitar player of Mount Moriah.  The beloved band has released two albums and toured nationally, but they call the Triangle their home.

Now Heather is stepping out on her own.  On Saturday, January 25, she’ll be performing at the MotorcoMusic Hallin Durham, opening for Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls. The singer-songwriter also recently accepted a full-time job at Girls Rock NC.  (The organization works to empower young girls to play music.)

Before Heather sat down to chat with Frank Stasio, we asked her what she's listening to these days:

Amy Ray's "Goodnight Tender"

Heather says: "This album is really raw, soulful, and moving."

Midnight Plus One's forthcoming record  (The title is to be announced.)
Heather says: "This the kind of punk rock band I've always wanted to be in."

Ex Hex's live videos
Heather says: "I've been a fan of Mary Timony's previous work.  And I'm excited about her new rock outfit."

Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
