SoundCheck: It's Eric Howell's 'Hermit Kingdom' and we're just living in it

Cindy Gunter

During the COVID-19 shut-down, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Eric Howellbegan writing and recording his latest album, Hermit Kingdom. He sat down with KSMU's Jess Balisle to talk about the recording process and what it's been like getting back to normal life.

Howell will be on Studio Live Friday, April 14,2023 at noon on KSMU, followed by an in-person show at Mother's Brewing from 6-8 pm that same night.

Jessica Gray Balisle, a Springfield native, grew up listening to KSMU. When she's not wrangling operations and compliance issues, she co-hosts live music show Studio Live and produces arts and culture stories. Jessica plays bass in local band the Hook Knives. She and her husband Todd live with their two cats, Ellie and Jean-Ralphio, and way too many house plants.
