Song of the Week | Greyhounds – Credo

This week’s WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is on the excellent new single, “Credo,” from Greyhounds. The track is the second to be released from the Austin, TX band’s upcoming album, Cheyenne Valley Drive, out April 13, 2018 via Bud’s Recording Services. Greyhounds are a duo consisting of keyboardist/vocalist Anthony Farrell and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Trube. They have been crafting their unique brand of southern-fried sound since 1999 and have released six albums with enough funky blues and sizzling soul to make even the coldest New England day feel like a warm Texas breeze.

Anytime a hometown band returns to Boston, they’re bound to be met with exuberance. But to say the crowd at The Sinclair was excited to welcome Darlingside home would be a severe understatement. There was a palpable excitement throughout the venue last Thursday night, even before the lights dimmed to welcome the evening’s opening act Twain. Even before the first notes flew, there was a giddy anticipation from the folks close to the stage. Singing and rocking to the house music in anticipation of welcoming Darling side home. And the band—touring behind their brand new release Extralife, did not disappoint.…

Luck Reunion 2018

There’s nothing quite like Luck Reunion. One day each year, Willie Nelson opens his ranch to ticket holders for an absurdly well-curated music festival, erecting stages across the still-standing western town from the set of Red Headed Stranger. Legend has it the script originally called for the town to be burned down, but Willie liked having it on his property so much that he had the ending rewritten to leave the town standing. Each March, Luck, as it’s become known, turns from ghost town into working western town, replete with a functioning saloon, vintage western wear shop, & a food…

When you think of Folk music, The Celebrity Series of Boston is probably not what springs to mind immediately. But on this evening, the series—which is better known for it’s classical, jazz, and international artist performances—played host to two of the Folk world shining treasures: I’m With Her and Andrew Combs. But while the match may have seemed a bit out of character for the series, it wouldn’t take long for the performance—which took place in Harvard University’s gorgeous Sanders Theatre—to make perfect sense to everyone in the house. The acoustics and amazingly attentive and appreciative audience were the perfect…
