On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

The Houston-based, five piece indie-pop band Wild Moccasins did a few things differently when they came to the WERS studio. For one, they were short a member, arriving without drummer John Baldwin. Secondly, the band, normally electric, decided to go with a mostly acoustic set for their songs in-studio, bringing with them only two guitars […]

On the Verge: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister

On the Verge: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister

The band-naming process was rather simple for this LA-based band that took a rather fact-based approached. He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister is fronted by sibling duo Robert and Rachel Kolar. While sibling relationships in bands are not uncommon, having your landlord playing slide guitar next to you certainly is. That’s where Aaron Robinson comes […]

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

Rolie Polie Guacamole Live In Studio

When you think of kid’s music, what do you see? Freddy Spaghetti, Raffi? A jaded hipster in a colorful costume alluding to some bizarre form of Brazilian Anime?

Nicole Henry Live In Studio

When asked about the affinity many have towards sad music, Nicole Henry says, “I’d hate to say that you have to be in pain to feel stuff… but it’s true.” Henry continued by mentioning the positive response she gets from her audience when she sings up-tempo songs, adding, “that’s the thing about jazz: you can […]

On the Verge: Tom Odell

On the Verge: Tom Odell

His first full-length album, Long Way Down, came out June 24th, yet Tom Odell has already made quite the name for himself. The British folk-rocker won this year’s BRIT Critic’s Choice Award (previously won by successful artists like Ellie Goulding, Adele, and Florence and the Machine), and played at South by Southwest. Pretty impressive for […]

Soft Focus Live In Studio

Soft Focus Live In Studio

“I want my burrito, Dad!” Sam Glassberg shouts as he recounts a story about a family he saw on the T with fellow bandmates Joe Holcomb and Garren Orr.
