Hailing from Odenton, MD between Baltimore and Washington DC, Ben DeHan has a pop-fusion sound similar to the Angels and Airwaves and Camino. Ben talks with Andy about his recent release, “Waiting For You”, and the music he makes with his fiance Lauren White, a songwriter and cellist, which includes Ben’s latest single, “Oxon Hill” about another local spot within the Washington DC metropolitan area.
Ben talks about his history as a touring musician as well as local influences and inspirations like Fugazi, Black Flag, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, Good Charlotte, Bumpin; Uglies, All Time Low, and Ben’s former band, American Diary. Ben talks about his songwriting and production leading to his comparisons to Blink 182 and Machine Gun Kelly.
Andy introduces Ben to another “This or That” segment where he must choose between Old Bay or Sour Cream & Onion, Aqua or ABBA, Fender or Gibson, Shrek 2 or Toy Story 2, and KFC or McDonald’s.

From producers to writers, women have been the arbiters of some of the most influential pieces of art. D.C.-based Colombian singer, songwriter, and first-time Wammie nominee Laura Luv talks to contributing writer Margaret Adams about her background, as well as how her Colombian heritage and women have inspired her music, especially through her newest self-titled EP, Laura Luv, and why the presence of women and female representation is important in the music industry.
