At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On The Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming.

Artist of the Week: Frank Turner

Artist of the Week: Frank Turner

This week WERS is featuring English folk-punker Frank Turner as our Artist of the Week! Frank Turner was not always solo.  He first rose to prominence in the early 00′s with the post-hardcore band Million Dead.  After that band’s split, however, Turner went in a different direction.  Influenced by Johnny Cash’s excellent American series (with […]

Whereas most bands like to fill up the studio with guitars, keyboards, drums, and other various instruments, our Lady Lamb likes to keep it simple. Armed with a beautiful Fender Jazzmaster, a classic […]

Grace Kelly Live In Studio

However, some people defy those standards. Take, for example, Brookline-based Grace Kelly, for example, who at the age of twelve kicked off a successful jazz […]
