Songs From Studio C: Mapache

Mapache

Today our guests make up the LA folk duo, Mapache. Songwriters Clay Finch and Sam Blasucci were just high schoolers when they first met at a local skate park in the Pasadena area of Los Angeles. After discovering a mutual interest in the music of artists like The Beatles and The Band, the two began writing their own songs and have continued to perform as Mapache ever since. We discuss their song "Song For A Seagull" as well as some performance advice they received from songwriter Jonathan Richman.
