Magical Musical Experience

If you have never been to a house show, it’s going to be hard to express how magical these experiences can be.  Basically, you take amazing music, lovely people, and put it into a small, personal space.

We have played, produced and attended quite a few house shows and have never been disapointed.  Here’s a post about a show we put on with Jacob Butcher, Holly McGarry, and Marshall McLean. And as great as living room shows are, we discovered last year that being outside  in Sandpoint in the summer pushes the experience to a whole new level.

So, on Saturday, August 24th, we’re going to get an early start on the day and transform this:

into this:

The photos above are from last year’s house show.  Here’s a post about it with some videos.

The lineup this year includes Anna and the Underbelly, us, and Mama Doll.

If you’re unfamiliar with Anna and the Underbelly, here’s an excerpt from this post on nodepression.com:

Anna Tivel (recording with her band as Anna and the Underbelly) brings a raft of beautiful songs with brine-soaked images of Pacific Northwest tidepools, oceans, and the birds that wheel above them in the gray skies. Her gentle, fragile voice sounds a bit like Laura Veirs, and brings to mind the same effortless folk phrasing and soft inflections of Veirs’ best work.

As for Mama Doll, they made their live debut as Sarah and Austen at our house show with Chris Staples a few months ago.  In June, they had two of their original tunes, Crow Song and Rumors featured on Collect and the videos have garnered over 1000 views each in just over a month.  They have also added depth to their sound, with our own Jen Landis joining them on bass!

The show will be held in our backyard.  We’re asking for an $8 cover so that we can pay the artists at least a small fraction of what their performances are worth.  If that’s prohibitively steep for you, come anyway and give what you can (financially or barter-style).  Of course, additional donations are accepted as well.

Bring whatever you like to eat or drink and maybe a blanket or chair to sit on.

We are VERY excited about sharing this evening together.  Please contact us via Facebook or our contact page for more information.

Our Daytrotter session is live!

During our Family Van tour, we had the distinct privilege of recording a session for Daytrotter while we were in San Francisco. We met up with a talented and friendly engineer named Rob at Studio Paradiso, which is nestled cozily behind a hotel in downtown SF. Josh Hedlund, Holly McGarry and we each recorded four songs.

Family Van Tour 2013

In less than 3 weeks we’ll pile 7 people into a Honda Odyssey, load all necessary gear into our trailer, and hit the road.  The lineup for the Family Van Tour will include Cedar & Boyer, Holly McGarry, and Josh Hedlund.  There is little that sounds as exciting as spending 2 weeks on the road, with great people playing great music.  Once again we’ll be joined by Ani and Miles, our (Jen & Justin) two kids.

Check out our shows page a full listing of where we’ll be.  Between May 12th and 28th, we’re playing 14 shows in as many cities.

As always, you can keep up with us by following us on the Twitter, the Facebook, and our email list (sign up on the home page).

Below are some photos and videos from last summer’s Ill-Defined Lines Tour.

Looking forward to another great NW tour in March!

We’ll be doing another Sandpoint/Spokane/Seattle/Portland mini tour in March while Holly’s home. We’ll be playing March 15 at Downtown Crossing with The Terrible Buttons, and throwing another house show on March 16th with artists and location TBA. The last house show we had turned out to be one of our all time favorite shows and we think the next one will be just as amazing. We’ll be in Spokane on March 20, Seattle on March 21 and Portland on the 22nd. All of these locations are still in the works and we’ll let you know when we nail down the details.
Thanks to all of you for the unending support! We appreciate you!
BTW, we’ll be working on a full length any day now… it should be done by June! Yay!

Production Fun

Throughout the summer, we have been spending lots of time with Holly McGarry and Josh Hedlund to record their incredible music.  Holly’s record, Ill-Defined Lines, and Josh’s EP, I Was Home Yesterday, are both finished now and and available at their respective shows.  The process of recording with these two talented individuals has been interesting and exciting.  There’s something about the process of capturing moments in music that transcends the mechanics of putting sound on tape (or hard drive, as it were).

Each individual involved practices their moves, hones their craft, and at the end of the day does the best they can to create a series of moments that will inspire and move their listeners.  But these moments aren’t just about rhythm and notes, they are about the experience a listener has while listening to the record.

In the end, each listener has to decide for themselves whether the moments captured are timeless; moments that inspire.  But for myself, I am convinced that what Josh and Holly were able to accomplish on their records is both inspiring and timeless.  Find them at their shows or reach out to them at their respective online homes (http://hollymcgarry.com and http://joshhedlund.com), get the records, and decide for yourself.

We had a chance to play with the overdubs earlier this year at Full Circle Brewing Company in Fresno, CA. We just added a June 27th date with the same lineup.  We’re stoked to play with Ryan and the gang again!
