Originally an acoustic duo formed in 2007, the Stagger and Sway brought songwriter Mike Last from behind the drum-kit of two prominent Eugene bands, to reveal his candid songcraft that hits somewhere in the spectrum between Tom Petty and Uncle Tupelo.
Delivering intimate melodies with a unique bite, the vivid lyrics and atypical time signatures produce catchy hooks and toe-tapping turnabouts.
“Time Changes” ranges from rocked up power-pop to alt-country bent ballads, and presents a snapshot of Mike Last’s true-to-life songwriting.
The Stagger and Sway performs around the Northwest as a full band or acoustic duo. “Time Changes” is available at CD Baby, CD World, and Working Stiff Records. (www.workingstiffrecords.com)
