Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Chris & Kaya cover the short but impactful span of grunge band Nirvana. As a generational voice that has become somewhat muddied as X becomes the older generation, we’ll look at what their actual legacy is, nearly 30 years since they disbanded upon the death of their co-founder Kurt Cobain. With tracks from their 3 studio albums, the acts that influenced them & their iconic live album MTV Unplugged in New York.
