We spend so much time dissecting music and pondering what the point in making it is that we sometimes forget that people merely create music because it brings them joy. That’s the most surprisingly pleasant thing about the Minneapolis band American Scarecrows; they do what they love without having to put any other labels on it. The trio, made up of Seth Davin and Allen Maier (Dropping Daylight) and Matthew Broadbent (Somerset), has packed all of the experience of their years into music that tells a story of love, loss, and growth.
Trapper Schoepp has the ear of a troubadour, the eye of a journalist and the heart of a young poet.
EDWARD DAVID ANDERSON
Edward David Anderson is an artist as ancient as he is modern. In a time when the music business desperately flails about, grasping at any new trend that will save its sinking ship, he exists far outside its confines. Best known for his work with the revered Midwestern rock band Backyard Tire Fire who released a string of acclaimed albums in the previous decade, Anderson returns to the national stage with his highly anticipated solo debut, Lies & Wishes.
