The Head and the Heart Live In Studio

The Head and the Heart Live In Studio

The Head and The Heart stopped in the studio to sweep us with their beautiful acoustic set. The band seemed as giddy as everyone at the station for the upcoming Newport Folk Festival weekend, pushing through their songs with a high summer energy. Having some vigorous touring schedules and working on some new songs, the […]

On the Verge: The Barr Brothers

On the Verge: The Barr Brothers

I wasn’t really sure what to make of The Barr Brothers (Brad and Andrew Barr, Sarah Page, and Anders Vial) as they entered the WERS studio on a Tuesday afternoon. Even though the band is a modest number of four members, they continued dragging more and more instruments into the studio until there were enough […]

On the Verge: ALO

On the Verge: ALO

California natives ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra) took some time off from ruling the west to join us here on the east coast in the WERS studio. Over their ten year span, the funky, jammy, poppy, rocky band have released eight studio albums, the latest four under Jack Johnson’s Bushfire Records. Their music features a great […]

Motion City Soundtrack on The Left End

Motion City Soundtrack on The Left End

Our studio was fortunate enough to welcome in Justin Pierre (vocals) and Joshua Cain (guitar/vocals) of Motion City Soundtrack. Their newest album, Go, has sent them for quite the ride. Leaving the major label, Columbia Records, the band thought that they would ultimately be funding the record themselves, but when labels got a word that […]

On the Verge: Julia Easterlin

On the Verge: Julia Easterlin

Julia Easterlin, one of the many talented artists performing at the upcoming Songs for Soldiers event, is just a year out of Berklee and already she has performed at SXSW and Lollapalooza. She is a singer/songwriter who does something with her music that I have never seen before: Easterlin is a loop-artist, and the two […]

Shawn Colvin Live In Studio

Shawn Colvin Live In Studio

Between a memoir, a new album, and a rigorous tour schedule, Shawn Colvin took time to stop by WERS this past Thursday. She grabbed a seat and immediately started feeling around on her fingerboard as we prepared for her solo acoustic session. As a singer-songwriter who has been creating albums for 23 years, Colvin seemed […]

Sofia Talvik on The Left End

Sofia Talvik on The Left End

For thirty-three-year-old Swedish artist and folk veteran Sofia Talvik, it’s all about committing to the cause. For a woman who’s committing herself to a two-year, worldwide tour, a new album, and a voice and personality that never seems to tire, no artist seems better suited to the task. We know what you’re thinking… a two […]
