“Spark Seeker” by Matisyahu

“Spark Seeker” by Matisyahu

If there were ever a wild card in the pop music hierarchy, Matisyahu is hands-down one of the most unpredictable and unconventional artists on the charts. His fusion of hip-hop, rock n’ roll, spoken word, and beat boxing combined with his latest effort to perform as an acoustic singer/songwriter on Spark Seeker: Acoustic brings some […]

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Halifax Canada’s Rose Cousins brought nothing more than herself and a couple instruments for her in-studio performance at WERS for live music week. As of lately, however, she has been proudly calling Boston her “second home,” and we caught her in rare form, not surrounded by a group of tight knit Boston musicians. She seemed […]

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

When I met with Virginia native and San Francisco resident Thao Nguyen at The Sinclair I experienced the more soft-spoken and humorous side of the musician. Upon first meeting her she joked about her band The Get Down Stay Down’s decision to watch the “very challenging” Rush Hour in their dressing room. We spoke about […]

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

All A Cappella has the unique privilege of being the hub for a myriad of different a cappella groups from all corners of the country, and certainly all over the Greater Boston Area. Today, however, I had the rare privilege of hosting a group right here at Emerson College. Achoired Taste is the newest of […]

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of welcoming the Wakefield Repertory Theatre and their upcoming production of Lucky Stiff, a musical farce concerning dead bodies, a plethora of accents, mistaken identities, and a six million dollar inheritance at stake. Prior to this interview, I had heard very little of this show, so I was excited to […]

Best known for their driving and relentless brand of hard rock, the Queens released two great albums and then kicked it up a notch with their breakthrough album, Songs for the Deaf. Josh Homme, […]
