It’s always a joy to welcome Gabby Young to the studio, this time without all the Other Animals, but just one – Milly McGregor, who plays violin and sings, and what a duo they make!
I could listen to Gabby Young for hours, her voice is one of the best in the business and stripped down the songs are utterly beguiling. Her new album One Foot In Front Of The Other is out in June and we’re treated to three songs on the show.
However don’t miss her playing a live show if you can, in full flight she is something to behold – you’ll be bopping and smiling like a crazy person.

We had two session tracks from Broken Twin recorded for The Other Woman on Amazing Radio recently. The singer and pianist from Denmark has been casting her spell over critics in 2014 and her show at The Great Escape was a knock out. Prepare to be amazed!

Juanita Stein is frontwoman, songwriter and rockin' guitarist for Australian indie darlings Howling Bells. They've made the UK their home for ten years now, with various label homes along the way including Independiente, Cooking Vinyl and Bella Union. New album Heartstrings, their fourth, comes out on Birthday Records on 2 June. We caught up with Juanita about female producers, making London her home and becoming a mother. There's also another track from the extraordinary Mishaped Pearls debut album, plus German rapper/ producer DENA, Iceland's Samaris and of course, Sharon Van Etten. Listen again here.

The Other Woman is on Amazing Radio every Sunday evening at 9pm:
There’s been much excitement at Amazing Towers as rockin’ Glaswegian duo Honeyblood released a new single, Killer Bangs is just as good as what’s come before and we’re all over it. 2014 is looking like the year for these two and we’re right behind them!
We’ve got a new single from Moulettes and Fiona Bevan too, plus Little Sparrow delivers some gorgeous country tinged folk. There’s some electronic loveliness from Sweden’s Klara Lewis too, daughter of Graham Lewis of Wire fame and doing extraordinary things with her debut album.
Congratulations to The Other Woman favourites The Tuts who’ve recently released their third EP Time To Move On. We particularly love this picture of them! They’re celebrating by playing fashion label parties in London and doing a session for our mate John Kennedy over on XFM. Perfect.
There’s also music from Kathryn Williams, in which she writes about her lack of love for the daily grind in Monday Morning from her latest album Crown Electric. You’ll also hear something new from Dum Dum Girls (sounding quite Chrissie Hynde like) and we introduce Joana Serrat, a Catalan singer who sounds a little like Laura Veirs.
You can listen again to all the most recent shows here.
