John Fullbright on Coffeehouse

For this week’s edition of The Coffeehouse, we at WERS were fortunate enough to have John Fullbright come in studio for a live session. Fullbright’s first studio album, From the Ground Up, was released earlier this year, but this was not his first album.  Contrary to standard industry practice, his first release was actually a […]

7Horse Live In Studio

7Horse Live In Studio

The WERS studio had a visit from 7Horse today for a wonderful live performance. The duo, consisting of longtime friends and rock veterans Joie Calio and Phil Leavitt, draws its sound from Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top up to recent blues rock groups like The Black Keys. Their debut album, Let the 7Horse Run,  is about “laying something down […]

Joe Pug on Coffeehouse

Joe Pug on Coffeehouse

Expression exuded from Joe Pug’s face as he sang and plucked away at his acoustic guitar in the WERS studio, one square-toed cowboy boot planted on the floor, the other resting on the crossbar of the stool he sat on. The tensing and relaxing of his brow only served to exaggerate the sentiment in his […]

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 […]
