Courtesy of Jake Stringer

Jake Stringer will be on Studio Live Friday, February 9, 2024 at noon on KSMU. Then join us that evening from 6-8 pm at Mother's Brewing for Studio Live Social Hour.

In this episode of SoundCheck, Jake shares his journey to country music.

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.
