An indie band from Cleveland that exploded into the national spotlight five years ago is reconnecting with its roots. For this week’s Shuffle, Amanda Rabinowitz talked to Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi about the band’s new sound and his renewed love for home.  

Dylan Baldi started Cloud Nothings as a solo project in his parent’s Westlake basement while he was a student at Case Western Reserve University.

Akron indie band Ledges has released a new 80's-infused album that's much more polished than the band's previous work.

The friends that have been playing together since high school have recorded mostly on their own in a basement. This past year, they made their first full-length album in Nashville -- for free.

For this week's Shuffle, Andy Hoffman of Ledges talks about going from DIY to Music Row.

Sixth City Sounds

A new non-profit is working to unite and grow Cleveland’s music scene. For this week’s Shuffle, we hear about Sixth City Sounds, which launched this summer by bringing local music to the public -- whether in a coffee shop or at a bus stop. 

Akron is celebrating its jazz roots this weekend with a second annual Rubber City Jazz Festival. For this week’s Shuffle, WKSU’s Amanda Rabinowitz looks at Akron’s revitalized jazz scene, spearheaded by a local musician.
