Even though it's a typical mid-winter soggy and gray Sunday in Seattle (shocking right?) Pete and I are blithely ignoring the damp chill and making edits to songs already on our Reverbnation page, i.e. swapping slide parts for Pete's electric guitar leads and working on mixes for new tunes. Speaking of slide - Pete forgot to bring his to rehearsal today and I watched in awe as he improvised flawlessly with a capo, pen and finally, a spoon. All worked well, but we agreed spoon was best.

There will be plenty of slide guitar (and a real slide) on our next gig and only Seattle date booked for the forseeable future at Slim's Last Chance on Saturday, March 8 with the the incomporable Annie Ford Band
. We kick off the evening with one set at 9:30 followed by Annie for two sets.  If ever there was a gig we needed all hands on deck and bodies in the house, this would be it.  We're thrilled to be given a Saturday evening to share with Annie and her kick-ass band and we want to do our part and pack the house. We've pulled more than enough "Troubadour Tuesdays" at Slim's so here's hoping there will be more Saturday nights at Slim's and other venues in the future. 

Speaking of Annie, she has a brand new CD, Dirty Hearts and Broken Dishes. A resident of Seattle and Virginia native, Annie and her band offer up a timeless blend of tough and tender songwriting, talented players, and a classic brew of Americana with underground country roots.

PRESS

"Wiser’s music is sharp and clean, featuring her sweet, powerful voice tempered by rich, stunning melody. Her music compels you to listen, and as you’re drawn into the web she weaves of thoughts and feelings and ideas, you find yourself walking on edge of a quick wit sharpened with water-deep emotions. Wiser writes emotional, rhythmically stirring songs and delivers them with genuine passion. She is a gifted singer and songwriter."  The Seattle Times

"Excellent The result is a collection of goodies; roots-rocky, iffy relationship sketches that frame Wiser’s voice and could soothe hypertensives right off their medication. Wiser’s clear, strong voice, and no-nonsense lyrics, are all grounded in melodic songs with rootsy touches."  The Seattle Weekly
