We have a new special on Jazz88 called Live From Studio 1, featuring long-form interviews and performances by Minnesota musicians. Our first broadcast guest was Nelson Devereaux, a Milwaukee transplant who’s made the Twin Cities his home since graduating from the University of Minnesota in 2012.

Nelson released his new album, Bad Water, Nov. 10th. We invited Nelson and his band to Studio 1 at Jazz88 to play a few tunes for us, and so we could talk with Nelson about making music and playing with friends. Here’s the full conversation and performance, Live From Studio 1.
