Laura Veirs
Laura Veirs
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
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.
