LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Shirley Manson, frontwoman of the indie rock band Garbage, has been announced as the new host for the new music-themed podcast The Jump.
The podcast will feature short-form conversations with musicians about “the moments in an artist’s career where they decide to take a leap into something new, and after that, nothing is the same.” Each episode focuses on a single song the artist has chosen that is especially meaningful—both in their personal life and for their career trajectory.
Guests announced for the initial seven-episode run include Perfume Genius, Big Boi, Courtney Love, Neko Case, Esperanza Spalding, Karen O, and Dave 1.
The podcast is produced by Little Everywhere, the Los Angeles-based podcast recording studio, with executive producers Dann Gallucci (of Modest Mouse and The Murder City Devils fame), Jane Marie (This American Life), and Hrishikesh Hirway (Song Exploder).
