Aoife O'Donovan

Grammy award-winning songwriter and musician Aoife O'Donovan is one of the most sought-after singers and songwriters of her generation. She has released 3 critically-acclaimed solo albums, is co-founder of the bands I’m With Her and Crooked Still, is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile, and spent a decade contributing to the radio variety shows "Live From Here” and “A Prairie Home Companion”. Aoife joined host John Floridis in conversation from her home in central Florida to talk about her career and upcoming album release “Age of Apathy.” This was a “welcome back” interview, as Aoife was featured on Musician’s Spotlight in 2018 as part of the group I’m With Her along with Sara Joaroz and Sarah Watkins.

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
