Named the "#1 Outstanding 2011 Album You Might Have Missed" by Amazon.com, Shelby Earl's debut solo album, Burn the Boats (produced by John Roderick of The Long Winters and released in November 2011 on Local 638 Records) inspired NPR/LA Times Ann Powers to dub Earl her "new favorite songwriter" (see below for full letter from Miss Powers). Collaborators on the album include members of The Long Winters, Telekinesis, (former) Fleet Foxes, The Head and the Heart, the Maldives and more. Earl has since shared stages with everyone from Benjamin Gibbard, Rhett Miller and Lavender Diamond to Loudon Wainwright III, Crooked Fingers and the White Buffalo.
Earl will release her sophomore solo album (produced by Damien Jurado) on July 23, 2013.
New Jersey native, Seattle staple, and most recently, Los Angeles rambler, Kevin Large has been making music under the WIDOWER moniker for nearly a decade. Large’s lyrically driven songwriting is reminiscent of Petty’s more mellow moments. There’s a cinematic sentiment to these songs, like a car scene from a Cameron Crowe film, full-up with our hopeless romantic hero’s fresh heartbreak. Perhaps, it’s raining.
