Tony Lucca LIVE In WERS Studio

“I’ve got some of the greatest fans,” Tony Lucca says with a lopsided grin, his hands resting comfortably on his guitar. Inside the WERS studio, the Michigan-native rides the line between earnest and passionate as he welcomes my questions between songs with his burgeoning Tennessee drawl. Lucca is on the first day of his spring […]

The Ballroom Thieves LIVE In Studio

The Ballroom Thieves LIVE In Studio

The Ballroom Thieves have really come a long way. As a folk-rock, Boston-based band, they went from playing in Faneuil Hall to touring around the country and now come May, they’ll be playing at Boston Calling.

Live Music Week: Crazyhearse LIVE In Studio

Live Music Week: Crazyhearse LIVE In Studio

Crazyhearse is far from the conventional band that you can pin down to a single genre. They’ve been called everything from “folk-punk” to “gypsy jazz” to just plain old “alternative rock.” The truth is they are all of those things and something more. The five piece band based in Middlebury, Vermont has found a niche […]

Alvvays LIVE In Studio

Alvvays LIVE In Studio

As load-in time roles around, the five members of the Canadian surf-pop band Alvvays trundle in with their gear. It’s twelve o’clock on a Saturday afternoon, but for anybody who’s been touring as heavily as these guys, it might as well be the crack of dawn. You can see it in their eyes – the […]

Jamie Kent LIVE In Studio

From the moment Jamie Kent entered the WERS station and started talking to us, we could tell that he was an incredibly down-to-earth guy. He came in with an acoustic guitar, beautiful songs, and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ button pinned to his jacket. Originally from Northampton, Massachusetts, Kent is now based out of Nashville, […]

River Whyless Perform LIVE at WERS Studios

River Whyless Perform LIVE at WERS Studios

  Their sound is echoing, if not a little haunting, but it doesn’t take long before their drumming beats lead into more uplifting energies. River Whyless creates music that takes you on a journey—through space and time, through emotions and stories. They spin songs out of the setting around them, from their North Carolina home, […]
