A prolific songwriter for nearly twenty years, Laura Veirs proves the depth of her musical skill on her tenth solo album, The Lookout. Here is a batch of inimitable, churning, exquisite folk-pop songs; a concept album about the fragility of precious things. Produced by Grammy-nominated Tucker Martine, Veirs’ longtime collaborator, The Lookout is a soundtrack for turbulent times, full of allusions to protectors: the camper stoking a watch fire, a mother tending her children, a sailor in a crows nest and a lightning rod channeling energy.
The Hackles are Luke Ydstie and Kati Claborn. They met in 2008 at band practice and have been playing together most days since then with a variety of projects including Blind Pilot, The Alialujah Choir, and Hook & Anchor. They live in Astoria, Oregon with their daughter, cat, and fish. Their debut record will be released in the spring of 2018.
