Kingsley Flood - "Quiet, Quiet Ground" - Newport RI

We are massive fans of Kingsley Flood! It was an honor to have Jenée Morgan on vocals, Naseem Khuri on Vocals/rhythm guitar, and George Hall on lead guitar representing the band in full force for this private Visible Voice session. Their playful banter and non-pretentious demeanor made this session in Newport RI a genuinely good time.

The Last Bison - "By No Means" Newport RI

After The Last Bison's stage performance in Newport RI they welcomed us out of the rain and into their "home" (aka the zebra tour van) for a truly visceral experience. Although one may know and love a particular band's music, it's hard to know what to expect of their character and hospitality. Within moments we felt as if we were a part of the "family" and were thinking of staying in the van and finishing their tour with them. Lead singer Ben Hardesty offered an exclusive solo version of an unreleased song called "By No Means." The cheers in the background from an ongoing performance might as well have been for the private session in a zebra printed van.

Visit The Last Bison on their facebook and twitter for more info and tour dates.

"By All Means"

Rayland Baxter - V.V. Session - Newport, Rhode Island 

Rayland Baxter, armed with a guitar and accompanied by violinists Odessa Jorgensenn and Kristin Weber, snuck away from the stages and summer sun and down a quiet tunnel for an acoustic performance exclusively for Visible Voice. They eased into a pair of tunes that seemed to make us forget about the festival going on around us, but certainly remind us that Baxter & co. are talents worth writing home about.

The Young Evils and LEAGUES - The Nectar in Seattle Wa

Thanks to Paste Magazine and American Family Insurance this show was an amazing success! The Nectar in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle was the host for an energetic mid-week performance by local Seattle band The Young Evils and Nashville's  break through band LEAGUES! These up and coming bands are both notable and bands to look for in the near future. 

The Young Evils

Rachael Yamagata - Tractor Tavern - Seattle WA

You may not recognize the name Rachael Yamagata but you've most likely heard her songs in various TV shows and in collaboration with other artists that you know and love. 

Rachael was not only charming and captivating but she was more importantly an accomplished musician and singer/songwriter. Every song was impelled by personal, emotional experiences. In a laughing manner Rachael made it clear that she "was not crying!" during her songs, and that many reviewers write that she was crying during her set. I will not report that she was crying but I will say that she went to "another place" while performing which portrayed an intimate side of her life.

Vikesh Kapoor * New Video-"Searchin' for the Sun" * On Tour Now!

Vikesh Kapoor is an old soul that produces heartfelt and compelling songs. He keeps you in the moment and tuned in to a feeling of purpose. Vikesh is truly enjoyable to watch live and I cannot wait for his up and coming album!

Three years ago, Vikesh Kapoor performed at Howard Zinn's memorial service in Boston, in front of Zinn's family and colleagues (including Noam Chomsky). Inspired by Zinn's lifelong battle against class/race injustice, Kapoor spent the next two years in Portland, Oregon working on a concept record based on a related newspaper article. His debut album, The Ballad Of Willy Robbins, out this Fall, chronicles the brutal but hopeful story of a working class man who slowly loses everything: ambitions, health, family, shelter. The album was co-produced by Adam Selzer (M. Ward) and features stellar participation from Nate Query (Decemberists, Black Prairie), Jeff Ratner (Langhorne Slim) and Birger Olsen (Denver). 

For more information visit Vikesh at facebook or his web site.

"Searchin' for the Sun" is from the upcoming debut album "The Ballad of Willy Robbins" due out in the Fall. This live video was shot at the beginning of this run of tour dates in Portland, Oregon at Star Theater when he supported the amazing Laura Marling.

Jonah Tolchin - Seattle, WA

Jonah Tolchin performed while having walking pneumonia; yet he still took care of business! Jonah has something that many musicians do not have which is an ability to evoke emotion while playing great songs. I have had the pleasure of hearing his up and coming album "Clover Lane" before it has been released and I will be the first to go out and buy a copy! But in the mean time make sure to listen to his album "Criminal Mind" which will make you feel the same way that I do.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Wiltern Theater - Los Angeles, CA

The members of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have been proving their live shows are something special throughout their 15 year career. Appealing to fans of all ages, BRMC defines what a rock and roll band should be, and their devoted fans are always treated to the ultimate live experience. 

Returning to their home in Los Angeles after a six-month long world tour, BRMC played to an enthusiastic and appreciative crowd at the sold-out Wiltern Theater Saturday night. From the thundering floor tom drum in the opening “Let the Day Begin” to the final fading guitar note of “Funny Games” from their new release “Specter At The Feast”, Michael, Peter, and Leah used and abused their instruments for 2 hours and left the crowd exhilarated and exhausted.

Pokey Lafarge - Tractor Tavern - Seattle WA

Pokey Lafarge brings new life to old timey country swing! His catchy jigs are hard not to dance to-and you will dance! Whether you like his brand of music or not it is worth a listen… it's hard not to fall in love with it. Pokey played to a sold out Tractor Tavern in Seattle. This crowd could not have been more excited to see him; a mixture of rowdy sing a longs and swing dancing folks filled the place.
