My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Nov 11, 2015

Badass white witch of Australian roots music, Melody Pool, wears the influence of Joni Mitchell's "Blue" album like a badge of honour.

In a frank and generous conversation, Melody talks about how discovering Joni from an unexpected source helped revolutionise her songwriting, the influence of depression on 'Blue', Joni's European travels, sustaining emotional connections with your own music and how she deals with dredging up traumatic memories and the ghosts of her pain when recording and performing some of her best songs.

My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the great works of pop music. Each episode features a different songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time - their history with it, the making of the album, individual songs and the album’s influence on their own music.

Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist and photographer from Sydney, Australia who has worked in the music industry since 2007. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the feature film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins, in addition to many commercials and music videos.
