In Studio: William Fitzsimmons

Check out a session we had with indie-folk singer-songwriter William Fitzsimmons from the middle of April! Fitzsimmons was born and raised here in Pittsburgh but now resides in Illinois when he’s not touring. (Yes, he’s still a Steelers fan.) Listen to the full session below:


In Studio: Dresses

At the end of March, we were lucky enough to have the Portland-based indie pop duo Dresses come in to our studio. Check out the session below:


In Studio: Kellee Maize

On March 5, WRCT welcomed female rapper and social/political/environmental activist Kellee Maize into the studio. She sat at her computer (homemade juice at hand), loaded up a beat, and began one of the most entertaining and interesting sessions I’ve been a part of.  Quite literally. She had me clap along and even sing with her for a few songs. The whole studio was bumping! Listen to the whole session below.

From the moment Kellee arrived, she had so much positive energy surrounding her that it was no surprise to hear how incredibly involved she is in the Pittsburgh community. Her company, Nakturnal, is dedicated to building and connecting artists within the community. Every other month they host an arts showcase called RAW which helps artists spread their work and their message. My favorite quote from the session: “We all have a voice and all have something to share, and it’s really about us all, together, growing.”
