AMPLIFIED FRIENDS returns with another semester of sultry sounds from the New School, New York City and beyond. For our sixth episode we hear from three unique New School songwriters.

First we travel to the Bushwick apartment of Diego Claire where we recorded him performing solo & as a duet with fellow Lang student Greta Melcher.

Next we meet up with New School for Jazz student Emilie Schattman at Arnold Hall where we gathered ’round the piano to hear her croon & tinkle the keys of a grand piano.

Finally we visited the family home of Jesse Statman in Park Slope where we pet his dog Cannonball and listened to him rock out on a homemade guitar. (You may remember Jesse’s poetry from Episode 1 with the Experimental Writing Collective, check it out below!)
