On tour promoting his emerging career, Max Frost and his band stopped in to The Current's studio for a live interview and performance hosted by Bill DeVille.

Frost spoke to DeVille about growing up in Austin, Texas, and the influence of that city's guitar players, from Bob Schneider to Gary Clark Jr. Beyond the blues, Frost also talks about how hip hop taught him a lot about production.

One of Frost's biggest surprises recently was the opportunity to record at Jeff Tweedy's Loft studio in Chicago. Frost talks about his collaboration with Tweedy, and how the atmosphere in that studio is geared toward the work of making music.
