Q + A with a Riveting Musical Duo

In truth, March to May, a Seattle-based folk-pop pair, defies all genre descriptions. Singer-songwriters Darren Guyaz and Beth Wesche brilliantly overlay harp and guitar with rich vocal harmonies, haunting lyrics and riveting melodies. The result? A unique sound that has received flattering comparisons to the likes of Swell Season, Damien Rice and the Civil Wars. 

A Q+A with the longtime bandmates 

Pop/rock quartet ALO has been deemed “more than a band…It’s a musical relationship”—and one that has propelled the band and its loyal fans for nearly two decades. The band’s currently on tour to support their new Brushfire Records (Jack Johnson) release of  ‘Tangle Of Time’—a joyous collection of songs evoking their 70s-esque California cool sound and whimsical improv. Saturday, December 5, they bring their playful act to Fremont’s Nectar Lounge.

Mark your calendar for some rockin’ Moore music

If you’ve not yet seen Shakey Graves live, that’s something you’ll want to fix. We’d recommend you clear your schedule for this Sunday evening to catch the mesmerizing and enigmatic performer, who made a name for himself early on as Austin’s best one-man band. This weekend, his much buzzed-about Die Hard Tour—one that features him with a backing band—enlivens the stage at downtown’s Moore Theatre (with Tennis as the opener).

If you follow Seattle’s thriving music scene, chances are you already know this name. And if you don’t, well, you really should. Though Kenyan-born Naomi Wachira has already made some major waves around the Pacific Northwest (Seattle Weekly coined her the city’s “Best Folk Singer” last year), it seems just a matter of time before this soulful talent is truly discovered.

 V. Contreras Releases Her First Full-Length Album.

Another Seattle show, another chat with the talented frontman.

A year after our first Q&A, Langhorne Slim sets us straight on the band’s recent successes and future hopes. In essence?

If you’re wise, you’ll join in on the celebration.
