Just before his set opening for Ingrid Michaelson in Seattle last week, I had a wonderful conversation with Greg. I can’t wait for you to hear Greg’s songs, he is one of a kind!
The thought of starting a conversation about music with Emerson Hart was very intimidating at first – after all, he wrote some of my favorite songs over the last two decades – but that feeling quickly transformed into comfort when he reached out his hand and introduced himself just before our interview last Friday afternoon at Woodinville’s Chateau Ste Michelle.
We are very excited to premiere Kate Lynne Logan’s latest video, “Roosey Roads”! Please enjoy below!
There is one major lesson I learned at Bumbershoot this year: just because a band isn’t playing the MainStage doesn’t mean they can’t attract as many people. The audience surrounding the Fisher Green Stage for Neon Trees was so large that it overflowed onto the sidewalk and even up the stairs. Everyone went wild when the band started playing and vocalist Tyler Glenn started belting out some incredible notes. And it just got better and better – people continued to get more and more excited as the show went on!
In this world, we have people who follow paths and people who pave them.
Acappella group Pentatonix has taken non-instrumental vocal artistry to an entirely new level and is paving a way for acapella groups into the mainstream. After winning The Sing Off, the five members of the group: Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado and Kevin Olusola decided that they wanted to not only continue covering songs that people love – but to also start writing new songs for people to love.
Sarah Miles’ latest release, aptly called Hear Me Out, will command your attention from the moment you press play. Her beautiful voice will no doubt capture your heart and hold onto it for good. I can’t wait to hear what’s next! Sarah was kind enough to do a Q&A session with us and I must say: she is lovely!
There’s something so special about an artist that can bring light into your life just by sharing his talent with you. When you listen to Life Imitating Life, Daniel Layus’ first mostly solo effort under the moniker of Augustana, you can feel the lightness that can only come from songs that reflect an honest and authentic songwriter.
Unlike a lot of bands, Augustana got pretty big pretty fast early on in their career. Their debut record, All The Stars and Boulevards, quickly climbed the charts as their hit single, “Boston” played on radio stations across the country. Now that Daniel is the only founding member left, he’s been able to reflect and grow from the experience and get comfortable with who he is and what he wants from his career.
Looking for a smooth folk-pop sound to bring you into a beautiful fall? Look no further, I’ve got just the band for you!
The Court Yard Hounds, comprised of sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, released their self-titled debut in 2010 and it’s been nothing but fun for them since then. Departing from their Dixie Chicks career roots in country music, the sisters along with guitarist Martin Strayer write folk songs with a pop twist that will keep you coming back for more.
Colorado-based singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov might just be the most wonderful songwriter to softly make his way into your life at just the right time.
