Dan & The Wildfire

Dan & The Wildfire

Dan & the Wildfire came into the studio to perform a live set for WERS’ Live Music Week. The lively folk/rock group played three songs off of their second album Smoke Signals, which the group self-released in October of 2012. Dan & the Wildfire is composed of five members: the titular Dan himself, who is [...]

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Rose Cousins Live In Studio

Halifax Canada’s Rose Cousins brought nothing more than herself and a couple instruments for her in-studio performance at WERS for live music week. As of lately, however, she has been proudly calling Boston her “second home,” and we caught her in rare form, not surrounded by a group of tight knit Boston musicians. She seemed [...]

Lunch Money Live In Studio

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

Achoired Taste Live In Studio

All A Cappella has the unique privilege of being the hub for a myriad of different a cappella groups from all corners of the country, and certainly all over the Greater Boston Area. Today, however, I had the rare privilege of hosting a group right here at Emerson College. Achoired Taste is the newest of [...]

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of welcoming the Wakefield Repertory Theatre and their upcoming production of Lucky Stiff, a musical farce concerning dead bodies, a plethora of accents, mistaken identities, and a six million dollar inheritance at stake. Prior to this interview, I had heard very little of this show, so I was excited to [...]

Winter Live In Studio

Winter Live In Studio

One of our favorite things to do at WERS is to cover local talent, especially talent that is from Emerson! Winter, a self-described dreamy shoegazing band, is fronted by Emerson’s very own, Samira Winter. The band initially began as a collaboration between Samira and Nolan Eley, Winter’s lead guitar player and also a member of [...]

Paul Adelstein Live In Studio

Paul Adelstein Live In Studio

Far from sunny Los Angeles where he usually resides, Paul Adelstein, of the band Doris, found himself in WERS’s studio for 2013’s Live Music Week. The spectacled, scruffy Adelstein alternated between the piano and acoustic guitar as he warmed up, focused and calm, casually belting out bits and pieces of his catalogue of songs. Completely [...]

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 [...]
