Great Lake Swimmers Live In Studio

Great Lake Swimmers Live In Studio

Tony Dekker, Erik Arnesen, and Miranda Mulholland of Great Lake Swimmers stand infront of me, packing away their guitars, violins, and banjos. Their music is a pleasing combination of folk with a touch of twang and a great vocal duet. They just performed three songs off of their newest album, New Wild Everything, for a […]

William Beckett Live In Studio

William Beckett Live In Studio

  Before The Academy Is… and Warped Tour fame, William Beckett played local shows in his hometown of Chicago under the name Remember Maine. It was just him and his guitar, back in the day, until The Academy Is… released their debut, “Almost Here,” one of the best pop-punk albums in a decade full of […]

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato recently released his seventh solo album, his first self-produced, and it’s awesome to see how he has grown as an artist since he came into the scene. In the mid 1990s, he was involved in two separate punk bands. Today, his music is distinctly folk – the kind of music you’d like to […]

Naughty Water Live In Studio

Naughty Water Live In Studio

The members of Naughty Water hail from Brighton, but their sound draws inspiration from much farther away, both in time and space. All members of the band (Phil Stanley, Sam Small, Dave Becker, and Tyler Brooks) share a love of the many artists that have so heavily shaped their sound. They described themselves as a […]

On the Verge: honeyhoney

On the Verge: honeyhoney

Santo and Ben Jaffe, the two core members of California band honeyhoney, were incredibly amusing to witness in person with their back and forth wisecracks and playful sarcasm. Their conversational chemistry lends itself well to their music, which pulls from rootsy stylings and adds them to the roster of impressive new Americana and folk musicians. […]

On the Verge: Plants and Animals

Every Tuesday at 4:15pm, WERS highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming in our weekly On The Verge series. This week we are featuring Montreal based indie-rockers, Plants And Animals!

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Andrew Bird Live In Studio

Making a name for yourself is hard to do in a time where new bands are constantly emerging, begging for the spotlight and labeling themselves with a genre. Andrew Bird, whose first album came out in 1996, has worked diligently not only to come up with a trademark sound, but to defy simple stereotypes. “I […]
