Most musicians would love to have a moment that defined their career. A moment when they find something that sets them apart and pushes them forward into unknown territory. If, as an artist, you’re lucky enough to have that moment, we - as the listening public - can only hope somebody was there to press record. If that moment exists in a song, we want to hear every bit of it. But what about what came before. And after. This season on “The Jump”, acclaimed singer / songwriter Shirley Manson (Garbage) sits down with seven of the most influential musicians of the last two decades (Neko Case, Esperanza Spalding, Big Boi, Dave 1, Courtney love, Karen O and Perfume Genius) to discuss the song that represents their artistic moment of truth and the impact that song had on both their careers, and their lives.
