American Scarecrows – Gods Of The West

American_ScarecrowsLike most developing artists, American Scarecrows has gone through different members as it solidified their sound. The group began with Seth Davin and former member Kevin Mayer who met while in high school. Davin left school to tour with Dropping Daylight, in which Allen Maier also played drums, forming a bond that withstood many miles on the road. In the meantime, Matthew Broadbent was touring fulltime with his band Somerset. As their paths diverged and eventually came back together, Davin and Mayer began collaborating on some music, which truly was the start of what became American Scarecrows. Refining their songs, the two recruited Maier and Broadbent to define the sound before they finished their debut album and headed to Austin, Texas for a SXSW showcase. Shifting again to another chapter of their lives, the band went through more change, losing one of their core members in July of 2012 when Mayer moved to Denver. It’s apparent listening to the three men that the past few years have been that of change, and how they were able to reflect and effectively channel the essence of those changes into their sound is admirable. American Scarecrows is a band that is only now realizing what they are capable of.

Rayland Baxter – Yellow Eyes

“All of my music has come in a very natural way, by following the organic process of life and letting it just happen,” Rayland Baxter says. “I jumped my fair share of ships, and the pieces came together slowly, not by study or design.” The result is a record inspired by a life lived, not one struggling to inspire life. “Down the mountains and the valleys like the breeze,” he sings on “the mtn song,” “we’re going where we want to go, doing anything we please.” He’s done just that, writing songs that are reflections of what he’s seen, felt and lived; the metaphors found in the hills, the slow strums born at home but blossomed across the sea.

Craig Finn – Maggie I’ve Been Searching For Our Son

Craig_FinnCraig Finn is best known as the front man for The Hold Steady and his former band, Lifter Puller. Described by Pitchfork as “a born storyteller who’s chosen rock as his medium,” Finn’s lyrics are often noted for having a strong literary bent, stringing together recurring characters and storylines throughout.
Born in Boston MA, Finn grew up in Edina MN. He moved to New York City in the fall of 2001, after Lifter Puller broke up. He has said that lyrically, with The Hold Steady, he’s been trying to produce a more positive, coherent, story-based message, in a natural way that he could imagine someone saying.
