Ryan Fitzsimmons

Ryan Fitzsimmons

Boston-based singer-songwriter Ryan Fitzsimmons brought a quartet of musicians into the studio at WERS to round out his sprawling folk sound. The mandolin and violin especially set his sound apart by harkening back to past decades and filling out his guitar melodies. He played three standout tracks from his latest album “Cold Sky,” starting with [...]

Youth Lagoon Live In Studio

Youth Lagoon Live In Studio

A young prodigy in the art of homemade musical arrangement, Trevor Powers came to WERS today with a purpose. I am convinced that he knew how impressive his performance was going to be from the moment he walked in. Twenty-two year old Trevor carries a sense of confidence beneath his humble appearance and it’s so [...]

Chris O’Brien

Chris O’Brien

Local singer-songwriter Chris O’Brien stopped by for an in-studio performance and shared his humor and dance moves with the WERS staff. Before going on-air, the Harvard student and Western Mass native sat down for a little Q & A. Q: What do you do to pass the time on tour? How do you keep yourself [...]

The Brew

The Brew

Indie rock band The Brew came into WERS today for a live mix. Though they just recently finished up their US tour, traveling to states like Nebraska and New Mexico (Taos, besides Boston, was Chris’ favorite place to travel to during tour), they will be traveling through the east coast from now until June. The [...]

Inside LMW: On-Air

Inside LMW: On-Air

Tuesday afternoon in late March: just another day of Emerson classes and work? Think again. Here in the WERS air studio there are three hosts instead of the usual one. Katie is at the board, Kathryn and Jamie at the guest seats. All three are taking their turn at pitching on the air for Live [...]

Jay Psaros

Jay Psaros

Jay Psaros is joining a fast growing cult of artists who transcend expectations of their medium and big label standards for a life of true musicianship. 2012 promises the release of his third album, an acoustic EP AND a book Jay’s been working on chronicling his life on the road as an independent artist. Perhaps [...]

Antje Duvekot

Antje Duvekot

So I’m sitting here trying to determine what exactly it is I’m eating this afternoon (some sort of Jamaican chicken dish…I’m pretty sure). WERS Live Music Week pretty much runs single-handedly on coffee and mystery dishes. I notice Antje Duvekot’s guitar case chillen next to me in the WERS lobby before she gets ready for [...]

Inside LMW: News Department

Inside LMW: News Department

During Live Music Week we often see a lot of behind the scenes footage of the web staff and live mix teams, but it’s not very often that we hear how LMW affects the award winning news department. I am here with Maggie Smolka, Friday Morning News Producer, lets see how LMW impacts her and [...]

Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton is based in Philly, grew up in Virginia, started her first band while living in Oregon, and based her latest album on her experiences from frequent visits in New Orleans, the city that stole her affection. Currently, touring all over the US, and today she stopped by for Live Music Week to share [...]

Will Dailey

Will Dailey

Originally a singer-songwriter, WIll Dailey has grown into a full-time rocker since his 2011 release Will Dailey & The Rivals. The full band alongside Will on this record has naturally allowed room for a more evolved and dynamic sound. Even though so much of Will’s recent focus has been on creating a fuller sound, he [...]
