Bassist and vocalist Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive joins host John Floridis in conversation from her basement studio in Brooklyn, New York on Halloween Eve, 2020. From their start in Boston in 2004 as a mashup of country, swing-era jazz and classic pop, Lake Street Dive has slowly made its way into the foreground of musical consciousness around the U.S. and beyond. The group took a big step with their slowed-down and funky-grooved cover of the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back”, the video of which became a YouTube hit with over six and a half million views.
