Mike Ragogna: Landline: Conversations With Greg Laswell and Ben Kweller, Plus Good Old War's Exclusive and Nick Lowe's "Tokyo Bay"
The Silver Tongue - almost 5 years

The biggest thing that kind of set it in motion was the idea to have these female guests on it--Sia, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, and Elizabeth of Elizabeth and the Catapult. Once that idea came about, it kind of freed me up to make the record larger than just me, and make it something bigger than it would have been otherwise.

Fifth album, released Tuesday, features Tegan and Sara on 'Body Work.' By Akshay Bhansali Morgan Page Photo: Rukes.com With two Grammy nominations under his belt and having sold out 35 of the 45 shows on his last tour, American DJ/producer Morgan Page went into the recent Miami Music Week on a high. The title track of his fifth album, "In the Air" featuring Angela McCluskey (a co-production with BT, Sultan and Ned Shepard), went to #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay Chart and spent 25 weeks in the top 10 last year. "Body Work," featuring MTV family indie darlings Tegan and Sara, followed as the album's second single, with an '80s-inspired video set in an auto shop that premiered on MTV's Buzzworthy in February. This year, Miami proved fruitful. While he didn't come away with any International Dance Music Awards (he was nominated for "Best American DJ" and "Best Progressive Track"), MMW provided a fan-galvanizing series of gigs, underscored by his own "Morgan Page P ...
