Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week: Eric Ezra

August 24, 2020
The Big Beat with Ryan Arnold

Totally had a "case of the Mondays" today and was glad to get into music to turn it around.  Here's to a better Tuesday, am I right?! More from Doves, Bon Iver, James Vincent McMorrow along with Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week -  a very cool instrumental project called Eric Ezra. The entire playlist is below and online and you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.

I mention every week because it's so important - support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, wehever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.

Your pal,
-Ryan A.
