Review:: Taylor and the Wild Now | Taylor and the Wild Now

For Fans of: The Head and the Heart, Oh Honey, Dawes, Ben Howard

If you could bottle the feeling of a lazy afternoon, this EP would be it.

Taylor & The Wild Now’s self-titled debut EP showcases Taylor Baker (guitar, vocals, banjo) and Drew Walker’s (guitar, trumpet) respective talents with bright, melodic riffs and enticing melodies.

5 Questions With:: Youngblood Hawke

Interview conducted by Kristen Schell.

It’s a small world after all! Now this isn’t something I would normally say unless I were on the Disney ride, but here’s a fun story for you. Iglu and Hartly was the name of a band that formed prior to Young Blood Hawke. Back in 2008, I was a student of Ms. Martin(aka singer Sam of Young Blood Hawke’s mother)’s keyboard class. I had first hand sneak previews of Iglu and Hartley’s music when Ms. Martin would promote the band via background music to frantic typing. Flash forward and now this duo have moved on to bigger and better things, creating the amazing band we know as Young Blood Hawke!

For those who already know this band (and even for those of you who don’t), here is some exclusive insight to the band’s name origin, creative process, and long-term goals!

5 Questions With:: Kins

image

Interview conducted by Kristen Schell.

Serendipity brought them together and creativity has made them flourish. Kins are an indie-rock band based in the UK. Alex Knight and Thomas Savage met in Australia while their previous bands were on tour. Alex moved to England where they found the remaining two members of the band. We chatted about making mixed tapes and their creative process. While I only spoke with two of the four they were a pleasure to converse with.

Their set [at Bumbershoot] was a masterful blend of both high and low energy songs. Heads were bobbing and hands were clapping. The music was outstanding live, which is always a plus for any bands.

5 Questions With:: Gregory Alan Isakov

Interview conducted by Kristen Schell.

Gregory Alan Isakov is both humble and hilarious; this is a rare find and indeed a treat to speak with. He is a creative visionary combining both his experiences and craft of story telling into his music. There is a richness that cannot be mimicked in his vocals and the fluid harmonies that guide you through the story often places you somewhere unexpected. 

The day after his performance at Bumbershoot, I was able to chat with him about his his sound, how his performance went, and what we can expect next from him!

5 Questions With:: The Weather (Previously known as Campfire OK)

image

Interview conducted by Kristen Schell.

This band is definitely going places and we had the chance to chat with the mastermind behind The Weather/Campfire OK, Mychal Cohen, a cool easy-going fellow.

They all met sporadically, slowly piecing together their sound. The band (who performed as Campfire OK) played their second Bumbershoot since coming together in 2010. Their performance was AMAZING, both old and new songs (mostly new from their recently released album “Infinite Loop”). 

Campfire OK, now going by the name The Weather, knows how to move a crowd and at Bumbershoot they blew the lid off of my expectations! Excitement for the band, they are changing their sound and also their name, let me add in their new stuff is beyond incredible!

Festival Review:: Bumbershoot

image

It was phenomenal weather for the always-raining Seattle, WA and Bumbershoot 2014 was hands down one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I was able to enjoy the luxuries of a three-day pass to scope out both old and new artists. The experience as a whole can be best described as breathtaking - I say this because between all of the walking, my breath was literally gone (not to mention how many “wooo’s” and “you’re amazing’s” were screamed out after each outstanding performance). I ended the weekend with no voice, sore legs, and a giant grin. 

For those who may not be familiar, Bumbershoot is a festival hosted around the Seattle Center in Washington, which highlights a variety of different artists, comedians, and other performers. It is a HUGE deal over on the west coast and people all over come to be swept up in the action.
