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 […]

Dan Blakeslee

Dan Blakeslee

New England native Dan Blakeslee is one of our favorite local singer-songwriters and a WERS regular. One WERS staffer, waiting for his performance, told me: “I love Dan Blakeslee, I see him out and about in Boston sometimes and he’s just great. He’s one of those real-deal guys who’s really doing it for the love […]

Chairlift

Chairlift

Chairlift: They began as a trio, and then they turned into a duo, but somehow, five of them appeared at WERS for their on-air performance for Live Music Week. Patrick Wimberly and Caroline Polachek– along with their three other troubadours– have another month or so of tour ahead of them, but for this last weekend […]

Po Boyz

Po Boyz

Po’ Boyz describe their sound as a “soulful gumbo of sounds, fearless souls and spirits.” While they’ve found a strong local following in Boston and have a weekly residency at the Middle East in Cambridge, their sound is deeply rooted in the South, particularly New Orleans, with a touch of 1970′s jam-band riffs. The band’s […]

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker is more than a friend and fan-favorite at WERS, she’s a kindred spirit. Her new EP Perfectly Imperfect is being sold on her website for a name-your-own price starting at $7. Moving up from that, fans get all sorts of thank you gifts from a skype-songwriting lesson to an in-house concert. This kind of […]

Jake Sorgen

Jake Sorgen

We kicked off this year’s Live Music Week with an acoustic, unplugged bang on The Coffee House this morning. Jake Sorgen, Cambridge-based singer-songwriter extraordinaire was ready to go bright and early for a live Coffee House Mini Concert. Jake has a new album coming out in early April called Sudden Myth, which he played three […]

Slow Club Live In Studio

Slow Club Live In Studio

Within the next few weeks, Slow Club will head over for a tour through Australia, where Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor have performed before in the past. This time around, though, their drummer Avvon Chambers and bassist Stephen Black will be joining them. “We’re looking forward to playing all the new songs. We’re kind of […]

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

“Come Back As Rain” by Good Old War

Pennsylvania trio Good Old War have returned with their third album, Come Back As Rain, with new experiences on their mind. Known for their upbeat sound and perfected harmonies, Keith Goodwin, Dan Schwartz, and Tim Arnold squeeze a new sound of nostalgic blues into the first half of their album. But Good Old War bring […]

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

SXSW 2012: A Matter of Songs

  Songs matter. A week ago when the WERS team heading out for Austin, Texas we anticipated warm weather, good music, and some 6th Street foodcarts. We came back with that fairly simple but important message: Songs matter. Everybody has their press kits—or more accurately bandcamp.com urls—beards, and cowboy hats at the ready, walking 6th […]
