The Hackwells & Taller Than They Appear – February 7, 2018
If you enjoy songs about prison graveyards, flea market beauty queens and other peoples’ faults, then you will dig the HACKWELLS. Brian McCarty on guitar, Jeff Schott on bass, Larry Everhart with harmonica, John Dobat on guitar and banjo. Call it roots, Americana, whatever. The HACKWELLS believe in substance over style, that a good song is a good song, and the song should determine the feel–that’s the HACKWELL WAY. Simple, Honest, Organic. And remember, the HACKWELLS would never try to sell ya a hotdog they wouldn’t eat themselves–that’s the HACKWELL PROMISE.
Taller Than They Appear
“Watching them is akin to watching a Fellini film.” Joel Palmer, Musician and host of The Empty Chair, Trinity House Theater.
Performing all originals all the time, Jere Stormer, Bobby Pennock, Sigrid Christiansen and Lauren Crane are Taller Than They Appear, a band of songwriters. With music ranging from gospel rock and blues to folk and ballads, each of the four has a style miles from the next, yet come together with soulful harmonies and arresting arrangements. Birdcalls, bells and bongos, woodblocks, washboards and whistles accompany guitars, violins and ukuleles and banjos. For a good time, call Taller Than They Appear.
