Season 3 — and the march to 50 episodes is on! Thanks for sticking around. We’re back, better, and fully integrated with our new set and look.

Songs from Studio B is a News 8 WROC digital exclusive series dedicated to both showcasing Rochester’s incredible musical talent, as well as featuring artists who come through our town for shows.

All of the music is recorded live, the video captured live; all of it refined for a product that blends the electricity of live show, and the polish of a studio session.

For each episode, artists are tasked with presenting two “A-sides” and two “B-sides.” The A-sides are songs that you know from the artist: whether it’s their signature song, their most promoted song, or the one with the most airtime. The B sides are tunes near and dear to the heart of the artist, but don’t always get the public love they deserve. In this format, listeners can take in the favorites, and learn the deep cuts…

Or any great four-song set.

Sugar Glider is an indie-folk duo with harmonies front and center that are equal parts warm and haunting; Roxy Elahi’s airy soprano and Alison Lindsey’s rich alto are a perfect fit. In this special one-mic set, half the tunes were Appalachian gothic, and the other were heartfelt tunes.

Sugar Glider is:

  • Alison Lindsey – vocals, banjo
  • Roxy Elahi – vocals, guitar

The tunes:

  • Moon Goose (0:00)
  • Cabin Song (04:15)
  • Sugar Coated Shell (07:38)
  • Jade Tree (11:58)

This series is produced, recorded, and mixed by Dan Gross. This one was solo. His knees hurt later.

Lovers of Colter Wall, Mandolin Orange/Watchouse, Regina Spektor, and more will love this set.
