Passion Pit to Tour

Passion Pit to Tour

While once walking the halls of Emerson College, I’m sure Michael Angelakos, now lead vocalist of the group Passion Pit, would not have predicted the success he and fellow members of Passion Pit are experiencing today.

The xx has released a mobile application to accompany their sophomore album, Coexist, which was released earlier this past September.

Joshua Radin on Coffeehouse

Early this cold Saturday morning, the sun was just barely pushing through the clouds when singer-songwriter Joshua Radin, accompanied by backup guitarist Brandon Walters, trundled into the WERS studio to play a few stripped-down acoustic versions of several of tracks from his newest album, Underwater.

Eric Hutchinson Live In Studio

Eric Hutchinson Live In Studio

Eric Hutchinson’s demeanor in person seems to directly mirror the style of his music, casual and full of the sharp wit reflected in his lyrics, the Emerson College notable alum and singer-songwriter, dropped by the WERS studio this afternoon to play an acoustic set for us back at his old stomping ground. Since his graduation, […]
