On the Verge: Shun Ng

On the Verge: Shun Ng

Looking back at the Shun Ng’s (pronounced Shoon Ing’s) formative years in Singapore, no one could have predicted he’d grow up to become the almost virtuoso guitarist he is today. Ng didn’t come from a very musical family, he struggled with classes and dyslexia from very early on and his gymnastic talent became evident long […]

Side Show Live In Studio

Side Show Live In Studio

In the 1930s, conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton were incredibly popular stars of the circus sideshow and vaudeville circuit. Purchased by their mother’s boss because of their “potential,” and subsequently trained in singing and dancing, they became famous “because they were freaks.” This is according to Brian Boruta, director of Emerson Umbrella’s production of […]

Bell X1 Live In Studio

Bell X1 Live In Studio

It took a seven hour flight over the Atlantic Ocean to get here, but Irish trio Bell X1 made it to WERS for a live in-studio performance. They kicked-off their North American Tour only four days earlier. Bandmates Dave Geraghty, Paul Noonan, and Dominic Phillips have been together for about twelve years now and have […]

The Wild Feathers Live In Studio

The Wild Feathers Live In Studio

“They’re like if Led Zeppelin and The Band had a baby in Joshua Tree that grew up listening to Ryan Adams covering the Stones 70′s country-influenced songs.” That’s the Wild Feathers, according to their Twitter and Facebook bio, at least. After hearing just one or two of their songs, it is easy to call that […]

On the Verge: Vinyl Thief

On the Verge: Vinyl Thief

Nashville’s got a stereotype that’s hard to break, its roots so ingrained in country and folk that it’s hard to imagine anything else budding from their scene. Vinyl Thief, however, have managed to do just that. Energetic indie rock that entwines electronic bursts throughout, their sound was enough to catapult the five person group forward […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

It is a terrifically exciting time for Blitzen Trapper; their album is a day from release, they’re on the first legs of their fall tour — and they’re sitting on the floor in-studio joking around in Gollum, Kermit, and Christopher Walken voices. The very silly folk/country quintet is comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Eric […]

Deer Tick Live In Studio

Deer Tick Live In Studio

“A little bit of indie mixed with some alt-country, sprinkle in some folk, and combine with blues–and here is Deer Tick!” Well, according to their website at least. Fresh off of recording their newest album, Negativity, Deer Tick trekked up from their home in Providence, Rhode Island to stop by the WERS studios. The band, […]

Glenn Tillbrook Live In Studio

Glenn Tillbrook Live In Studio

One of the most respected songwriters of his time, Squeeze’s Glen Tilbrook had composed so many well-crafted songs with bandmate Chris Difford that they earned comparisons to Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Whenever Difford presented Tilbrook with a set of lyrics, Tilbrook went right to work on the instrumentation that, combined with his own vocals, […]

Laura Marling Live In Studio

Laura Marling Live In Studio

Laura Marling, petite and quiet, enters the WERS studios in thin black jeans and simple shoes with nothing except an acoustic guitar and a show at the Somerville Theater to get excited about. At only twenty-three, the British folk singer isn’t much older than the college students that surround her, but couldn’t be in a […]
