G. Love stops by The Point studio

thumbnail_g-love-photo1.jpg

G. Love stopped by The Point studio in Woods Hole with his guitar, a bag of harmonicas, and a bunch of songs inspired by life on the Cape. CAI's Patrick Flanary hosts this interview.

Thirty years ago, Garrett Dutton, a.k.a. G. Love, was singing on the streets of Boston, where his blend of blues, folk, and hip-hop landed him a record deal with Sony. In 1994, his band G. Love and Special Sauce recorded laid-back fan favorites like "Baby's Got Sauce." G. Love was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2020. Now 50, he and his family have called Orleans home since the pandemic. His latest album is “Philadelphia Mississippi,” a nod to the style of music he calls “hip-hop blues.” G. Love is on tour with Donavon Frankenreiter. They’ll play Paradise Rock Club in Boston on February 2.
