"With this record in particular, I didn't feel pressure as much as, 'We gotta prove ourselves.' I wanted to prove it to myself, to the band, that we had music worth recording," says Vermont native Grace Potter, who just released her fourth LP, The Lion the Beast the Beat, with her backing band the Nocturnals. In this clip, Potter talks about traveling across the country to write and record the album, working with various producers – including the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach  – and how her home has shaped the band's sound.
