Bruce Kaphan plays the pedal steel guitar, but you won't hear him putting licks on Nashville country & western records. Instead, he's been playing with rock groups like American Music Club, REM and Sting. On his solo debut, SLIDER (Hearts of Space), he creates the definitive ambient pedal steel guitar album exploiting the instruments penchant for singing sustains and mournful bends. We journey to Bruce Kaphan's studio where he slides us through his pedal steel odyssey.

Harold Budd is considered one of the pioneers of ambient music due to a series of albums he released in the 1980s on Brian Eno's ambient music series including PLATEAUX OF MIRROR and THE PEARL. After remarrying and bringing a new son into the world, he's put out another CD of introspective ruminations called THE ROOM (Atlantic). We talk with Harold Budd about exploring music inside four walls.

Throughout the 1990s, Sheila Chandra has charted a remarkable vocal trail, exploring cross-cultural references from India to Ireland. Her trilogy of albums, Weaving My Ancestors Voices, Zen Kiss and ABoneCroneDrone, are the "Well-Tuned Piano" of vocal drone music. But Sheila's voice hasn't been heard anew since 1995. A throat disorder nearly ended her career. But now, an operation later, Sheila Chandra sings anew. She has a new CD called THIS SENTENCE IS TRUE (THE PREVIOUS SENTENCE IS FALSE) (Shakti). Sheila talks about her new experimental vocals and the drone zone.

Mention the name Ralph Towner to any acoustic guitarist and jaws drop, eyes pop open and a look of stupefied awe passes over their eyes. A founding member of Oregon, Ralph Towner's virtuosic mixture of jazz and classical techniques and a compositional verve that has yielded classics like "Icarus" have made him an icon of the acoustic guitar. On the heals of a new album called ANTHEM (ECM), Ralph Towner comes to the Echoes living room to play live.
