This week in Mark’s new Milwaukee music series, meet Pezzettino, the nom de guerre of one-lady indie accordionist, singer/songwriter and performance artist. You’ve probably seen her around town, busking, making videos and Twittering.

Mark and Pezzettino talk about why she chose the accordion (“It’s like a piano with lungs,” she says), what her stage name means, how her music is changing from aggressive break-up folk to experimental, collaborative pop/trip-hop and what she’s looking forward to about SXSW.

Backstage with Pezzettino

Our series continues with members of Masonry, the Whiskey Belles, Andy Noble and more. If that sounds too good to be true, make sure you subscribe to the podcast through iTunes.

    I met Pezzettino when she participated in TCD’s holiday song project. She wrote a beautiful little heartbreaker of a Christmas song for us, and she is as charming and lovely a person as you’d care to meet. — Tom Strini
