VH1 Storytellers Set To Return With Episodes Featuring Kings Of Leon, Cee Lo, Death Cab For Cutie And More


Kings Of Leon VH1 Storytellers

Music lovers, rejoice! We’re bringing back one of our most popular music franchises, VH1 Storytellers, for its fifteenth season. And this time around, you’ll notice that the artists have a decidedly more indie slant than they have in previous years (which, considering Arcade Fire’s surprise triumph at the Grammys this weekend, makes perfect sense). Read all about it in this press release that just went out a few minutes ago…


Featured Artists Include Kings of Leon, Cee Lo Green, Death Cab For Cutie, Maxwell, My Morning Jacket and Ray LaMontagne

New York, NY, February 16, 2011 – VH1 announced today its lineup for the 15th anniversary season of the renowned music franchise VH1 Storytellers. Featured bands and artists this season will include Cee Lo Green, Death Cab For Cutie, Kings of Leon, Maxwell, My Morning Jacket and Ray LaMontagne. Hailing back to the show's early roots, the new season will aim to provide a truly personal showcase for some of the greatest songwriters of today. The VH1 Storytellers music specials focus on the anecdotes, artistic musings and stories that inspired the artists and their music. These performers aren't afraid to tell all as they expose the most intimate details of their creative process for the audience. Kings of Leon will kick off the new season of VH1 Storytellers beginning this May.

– With this new season we want to go back to the original idea of great singer/songwriters who you don't see on TV very often talking to a small audience about their inspirations – “ where the songs come from, – said Bill Flanagan, Executive Producer. – VH1 Storytellers started with artists like Paul Simon, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits. It feels right to put the spotlight now on singer/songwriters like Jim James of My Morning Jacket and Ray LaMontagne. These are the greats of this generation. –

VH1 Storytellers is a VH1 original series in which a singer/songwriter performs and tells stories in front of an intimate audience about their life in the industry, writing lyrics, playing with other musicians and their career. The series started in 1996 with Ray Davies. Since then, episodes have featured David Bowie, Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Green Day, Elton John, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Billy Joel, Pearl Jam, Dixie Chicks, Johnny Cash, Foo Fighters, John Mayer and Christina Aguilera among many others. For more information about the series and to watch video clips from past performances go to Storytellers.VH1.com.

VH1 Storytellers is a production of VH1. Patrizia DiMaria produces with Lee Rolontz, Rick Krim and Bill Flanagan serving as executive producers.

  3. Molly says:

    Once again, Matchbox Twenty’s excellent storytellers episode is not mentioned… why does vh1 refuse to acknowledge that MB20 was on their show?? It was such a good episode!

  4. Jenelle says:

    I Would LOVE to be on the set with Maxwell. He’s phenomenal!!! I wish I could be in the audience during his performance that would be a dream come true…PLEASE how do you get tickets???

  5. soulshadow55 says:

    I can’t wait to see Maxwell. He’s an incredible human being and performer. His music has soothed so many souls, mine included. How can I get tickets for his taping?

  6. MusicFan says:

    VH1 are you guys monitoring these comments? How do you get to be in the audience for a show? The link on here for CAST and AUDIENCE doesn’t work. Is it a private invitation only? Please someone repond! Thank you!

  7. Kim says:

    It would be cool to be the reasons and meanings behind the lyrics and songs of the Kings of Leon. It would be wonderful to be in that audience to have a close experience and be one with understanding the meaning of their songs.

    Is there a way to be in that audience when its King Of Leon’s episode?

  8. MusicFan says:

    I guess I have to keep coming on here when I think about it to plea to someone @ VH1 to respond back to the inquiries of attending some of these tapings. The website has not been helpful with ascertaining the information on attending a show. In fact ‘My Morning Jacket’ performed before approx 200 people and I saw nothing but Twitter plugs to win free tickets to the taping. Is this a secret society? Private invitation only? Can someone please answer our inquiries or at least guide us to where we can find out about being in the audience for the tapings. And please do not guide us to the CastingCall tab, totally not helpful and gets you nowhere. Ok. That was my rant. Thank you for your time! Please respond VH1!!!!
