James Iha Live In Studio

James Iha Live In Studio

In retrospect, it was unreasonable to expect former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha to look exactly as he did in the “Today” music video, considering it was nearly 20 years ago. Naturally, the alt rock veteran has aged since the days of passing out ice cream cones with Billy Corgan in the middle of nowhere. […]

Will Dailey Live In Studio

Will Dailey Live In Studio

Newly independent Boston-based Will Dailey has won three Boston Music Awards in the past decade and was just recently nominated for Best Male Performer in New England by New England Music Awards. Dailey genuinely values the life his city has given him. He says, “Boston means a lot to me. I choose to stay here. […]

Delta Rae Live In Studio

Delta Rae Live In Studio

“People want something that’s authentic,” said Ian Hölljes, guitarist and vocalist of the North Carolina-based band Delta Rae when asked about the appeal of Americana folk-rock music to modern audiences. “Something with real instruments where you can almost imagine how the song came into being.” As Delta Rae’s growing fan-base suggests, there is indeed something […]

Wake Owl Live In Studio

Wake Owl Live In Studio

Equipped with only an acoustic guitar and a violin, brand new Vancouver, BC/Portland, Oregon band, Wake Owl visited the WERS studio and played a couple of tracks from their first EP Wild Country. A four member band consisting of musicians Colyn Cameron, Aiden Brant-Briscall, Josh Daignault, and Andy Shauf, the session was executed by just two […]

Jukebox The Ghost Live In Studio

Jukebox The Ghost Live In Studio

Despite coming to the WERS studio at the end of a nearly two month long tour, Jukebox the Ghost was by no means lacking energy during their set. The indie-pop band, known for their dynamic and peppy live performances, and cheerful instrumentals, played 3 songs off of their third and latest album, Safe Travels. The […]

Night Moves Live In Studio

Night Moves Live In Studio

The term psychedelic-country is an unusual and seemingly arbitrary genre tag used to describe the music of Minneapolis band Night Moves that didn’t quite make sense until I actually saw them in person. The description of their music manifested itself in their presence more obviously than in their music, with their style being half hippy, […]

Butterworth & Co. Live In Studio

It was hard to guess what type of music local Boston act Butterworth & Co were going to play when they arrived at the WERS studio. With one member wearing a Run DMC shirt, another wearing a paperboy hat, and another wearing a flannel shirt circa 1992, it was really anyone’s guess. The band kicked […]

Director Is Chosen For Elton John Biopic

Rocketman, the upcoming Elton John biopic, will be directed by Michael Gracey, a man known for his talent in commercial making. As an artist known for his dance based work with Gap and T-Mobile, he will take on something a bit different, describing John’s life from a five-years-old and on. The film will go more […]

ZZ Ward Live In Studio

ZZ Ward Live In Studio

ZZ Ward, born Zsuzsanna Eva Ward, looked every bit the part of a rock star; complete with obligatory leather pants. Her music was melting pot of blues, folk, hip-hop, and jazz. After growing up with her father’s blues record collection and her brother’s hip-hop collection, she has managed to forge her own take on a […]
