Another Chapter

A pre-brunch chat with singer/songwriter Pearl Charles
Los Angeles native Pearl Charles has a voice and sound similar to that of Rilo Kiley or Fleetwood Mac (she says the latter is now one of her greatest influences). There's something both nostalgic and forward-thinking about her songs in the way that they represent the greatest things about psych-rock and country music.

Celebrating the life and works of Neil Young

Gulf Coast Western

Charley Crockett's got a new album, a new look on life and maybe even a new genre of music (trademark pending)
Charley Crockett is a man of the South. Even though he—as Crockett puts it—has "hobo'd around" to many corners of the country, he still feels a special connection to the place that made him: a trailer outside of Los Fresnos, in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Review: "Wheels of the City"

The band's third album drives The Drunken Hearts into new territory
The latest album from Colorado five-piece The Drunken Hearts was made in what most would call an unconventional way. One day after the band released 2018's "The Prize," the guys headed into the studio and began to make and record a new song each day until they had enough quality content for a new album—and so "Wheels of the City" was born.

A Joyful Rebirth

Samuel Eisen-Meyers has a fresh start with The Joyful Noise
Currently on tour in Europe with fellow Portland bands Moorea Masa and The Mood and Swatkins, Samuel Eisen-Meyers found himself in Italy the day we spoke on the phone—and made sure to warn me of the sketchy wi-fi of the Air B&B, in case we lost connection. We didn't lose connection, but Eisen-Meyers did tell me about the positives in his newfound connection with The Joyful Noise.

New Redmond production company, Wolfe House, aims to bring community together—and produce more shows in the Hub City
At the beginning of the year, Jordan Wolfe stepped into the unknown and tried to make a new path for himself—and that path was Wolfe House. He and his wife, Katie, bought a home across the street from a drop-in-center for homeless people in Redmond, and started inviting their friends to come stay with them as they worked to try and "reinvent" community.
