The Strombo Show's International Women's Day episode

Evanescence, Maylee Todd, Land of Talk and others.


This week's episode of The Strombo Show is our annual celebration of International Women's Day.

We ring in the 15th anniversary of Evanescence's mega album Fallen and the band's recent collection, Synthesis, with an intimate session. As one of the architects of this last decade of pop-rock, frontwoman Amy Lee is a powerhouse. She brings her bravado, stories and song to the House of Strombo and talks all things motherhood and anxiety, and shares memories behind that undeniably influential album.

Land of Talk returned in 2017 from seven years of mental and geographic scramble with Life After Youth, and the band's lead single "This Time" ranked high on this year's Strombo Hundo. Lead singer Elizabeth Powell delivers those goods through her new songs plus a Safia Nolin cover, and she talks about modern feminism, the importance of redefinitions and what happens when you recognize mortality.

Maylee Todd's most recent album, Acts of Love, proposed the question: "What is your act of love and how does it bring you therapeutic value?" In conversation with Strombo, the inimitable artist digs into that tale of one woman's metamorphosis, the relationship between music and human nature, the meaning of happiness and more. All while performing new music and offering an exclusive cover of beatsmith MNDSGN.

We also revisit some of the most badass House of Strombo performances from this season, including the Beaches covering Linda Ronstadt, Belle Game covering Joan Baez, Black Mountain, Ellevator covering Kate Bush, Jessie Reyez, Weyes Blood covering Kate Bush and Zaki Ibrahim covering Mary J. Blige.

We also have song requests from some friends of the show, including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Cassie Dasilva, Charlotte Day Wilson, Lights, Margo Price, Milk and Bone and the Weather Station. Strombo also premieres new music from Skye Wallace.
