She popped by the Cafe earlier this summer to talk about her inspiration Aretha Franklin, recording with Prince, and the true meaning of self-love. Plus, she performs a set from her epic album, Cuz I Love You. We spend the second hour with Josh Ritter where he performs acoustic cuts from his latest album, Fever Breaks, which was produced by Jason Isbell.
