Every Tuesday afternoon, WERS highlights an artist that we feel is up-and-coming in our “On The Verge” series. This week we have picked singer-songwriter, Jake Sorgen.

First Aid Kit Live In Studio

First Aid Kit Live In Studio

Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg may have initially stolen folk lovers’ hearts with their video cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song,” which portrays the flannel-clad pair in the middle of the woods around the time their first EP came out in 2008. But while the rendition racked up the views on YouTube, […]

Ben Lee Live In Studio

Ben Lee Live In Studio

When Ben Lee’s Awake is the New Sleep first landed, people couldn’t get enough of the catchy pop tune “Catch My Disease”. With hand-clapping and guitar strums that call out like summer, Lee sang “and that’s the way I like it” with a carefree attitude that had the song stuck in listeners’ heads for days. […]

James Mercer Live In Studio

In 2004’s “Garden State,” Natalie Portman handed her headphones to Zach Braff and said, “You gotta hear this one song. It’ll change your life, I swear.” We heard the Shins’ “New Slang.” When the movie and its soundtrack skyrocketed to popularity, so did the band. Their unique sound, with its combination of catchy melodies, sharp […]

On the Verge: Owen

On the Verge: Owen

Mike Kinsella sits on a stool, intensely tuning his guitar and the studio seems a bit empty with just the lone, focused figure placed in the center. Kinsella (whose solo project is named Owen) has been in the music scene since age twelve in various capacities, but is still very serious about his music. Cordial […]

Since growing […]
