The Posies - Jon & Ken Duo Show

The Posies - Jon & Ken Duo Show

Rock ‘n’ roll has rarely been as smart, soulful or satisfying than it has in the
hands of The Posies. During an on/off career that’s stretched across four
decades, the Seattle-rooted outfit, led by musical polymaths Jon Auer and
Ken Stringfellow, have shaped and re-shaped their muse, creating one of
the more compelling catalogues in modern pop.
With SOLID STATES, their 8th album, the Posies mark dramatic changes
in the lives, the music, the evolution of the band.
When the Posies long time drummer, Darius, died suddenly and
unexpectedly last year, Posies founding members Jon Auer and Ken
Stringfellow were devastated. Hard as it was to continue without such a
close friend and great musician, the moment called for a reinvention. For
now… the idea of the band getting into a room and banging out the music,
garage band style, was over. The ideas coming from Jon and Ken were
fragile and the moods contemplative. Death, divorce, loss.
Even the joys of life are fleeting enough as to be treated with care and
respect.
Of course, the Posies still retain their legendary melodic abilities, their
trademark vocal harmonies and their lyrical agility. The band has always
been exploring, growing. The multiyear gaps between albums are typically
spent in countless other projects that bring new skills, sounds, experiences
and people to the picture. The band will present the album live in a new
format, incorporating laptop elements along with guitars, keyboards and
drums. As artists, the band feels it’s their duty to take risks and explore.
