IOWA CORNSONG.COM Podcast site from Iowa City, Iowa about local and regional artists, musicians, and happenings. Three segments featuring Patrick Hazell were posted in early August, 2007.
JEN GLOECKNER--Singer/songwriter Dubuque, Iowa "When I write, I am really not aware of my surroundings at all, either inside the studio, or outside the house. I do not find that my music really has any geographical boundaries at all." She adds, "I really cannot put my finger on it, but when I write, the visions I see and try to interpret are very similar to what one may experience in their dream state. I have also had collaborations with musicians in my dreams, which I have taken and finished writing in the conscious state. I often wonder if these other musicians are the various forms of myself."
