The Sober Cafe Podcast April 5, 2009

In 2006, the Sober Cafe Podcast set out to increase support for independent recording artists in recovery whose music is available online at  By focusing on music from clean and sober musicians, our show is spreading awareness that great music can be created without the use of drugs or alcohol.

Drawing from the wealth of personal experience of artists in long-term recovery, we then began our “Three Cups of Coffee & the Truth” interviews, focusing on their creative process as well as their experience, strength, and hope in recovery from addiction in all its forms. (Inspiration for the title of our interview series comes from Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame Member Harlan Howard, who often said, “Country music is three chords and the truth.”)

In 2008, received an Entertainment Industries Council PRISM Award for Interactive Media.  These awards, presented by the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC), in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and FX Network, reflect the entertainment industry’s commitment to the accurate depiction of addiction and health issues in film, television, music, comic books and interactive entertainment.   We are truly honored and cherish this award.

Our focus in 2009 is to continue creating our intimate music shows and to increase production of our “Three Cups of Coffee & the Truth” interview series.  We’re expanding our interviews to also include authors, actors, and artists!

All of the music you hear in our podcasts is available through Sunlight of the Spirit Music – exclusively selling CDs from artists in recovery, with the largest selection of 12 step and recovery music available anywhere on the planet!  If you like what you hear and would like to support artists in recovery, please visit

Thanks for reading this far.  You rock!  Now, grab a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon, put your feet up, and enjoy the show.

-Gracie Vandiver, Producer & Host
P.S.  If you would like to sponsor an episode, we would love to hear from you.  Contact info can be found on our Sponsors page.
