Nicole Henry Live In Studio

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. The good-humored chatter and playfulness continues during their warm up, but soon the band Soft Focus slowly lets the sound of steady drums and slow-picking guitar […]

Camera Obscura Live In-Studio

As far as Scottish bands go, Camera Obscura has had quite an impressive run. Since its inception in 1996, the band earned the blessings of late British DJ John Peel, survived multiple line-up changes, and released five critically well-received albums. Camera Obscura’s latest, Desire Lines, just came out in June and the band is currently […]

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

Brendan Kelley on Coffeehouse

Brendan Kelley, a Massachusetts-native, brought his soulful, bluesy music into the WERS studio for a performance for the Coffeehouse, and WERS was thrilled to have him. Although Kelley is only 21, his music is mature beyond his years, boasting a sort of wisdom that you don’t often find in young musicians. Perhaps that has to […]

Kopecky Family Band Live In Studio

The Kopecky Family Band are not a traditional family band, in the sense that all of the members (or at least some of the members) are related. Instead, they take on the term “family band” in a more broader and all encompassing sense. Their websites states that they are “…a family bound by the miles […]

Max Gomez on Coffeehouse

Max Gomez on Coffeehouse

We live in a society where we have forsaken the virtues of simple living; we consume too much, we like spend too many hours in front of screens, and it seems that, collectively, we have accepted technology as a sort of higher power. This attitude has seeped into every nook and cranny of our culture, […]

Lissie Live In Studio

Lissie Live In Studio

It’s been a few years since Illinois-native Elisabeth Maurus, better-known in the music world as Lissie, has released a new record. Catching A Tiger, 2010’s full-length release, was a well-received, original blend of folk, rock, and Lissie’s raw, powerful vocals; 2011’s Covered Up With Flowers was another popular release, a six track album made up […]

Glasshouse Productions Live In Studio

Tonight was a pretty great night, I must say. The Glasshouse Productions team came through to bless the live mix studio on 889@night. Glasshouse has been on the show a number of times, but never performing live in our studio. Glasshouse Productions consists of a team of emcees, producers, and singers. They are a tight […]
