All it took was an off-the-cuff show back in 2014, and the trio of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan knew they had something special. Formalizing this new union under the name I'm With Her, the three powerhouses have spent the past few years sporadically touring the group around, releasing an EP, and now they are releasing their much-anticipated debut full-length, See You Around.
Built on a foundation of tradition, intimate confessionalism, and expert musicianship, See You Around owes as much to the musician's past as it seems like a logical waypoint on their journey through song. We're going in on the supergroup's debut to find out if I'm With Her has got legs or if we're going to be seeing them around for a long time to come.
PLUS! Kim Ware's The Good Graces is back with The Hummingbird EP, and we've got it's charming AF leadoff track for you to put in your earholes!
One of the most unique voices in music today, John Maus is an enigma. His recordings are willfully lo-fi, and his deep baritone voice stands out enough to be immediately recognizable. After his third album, We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves, finally got him the critical and fan reception that he deserved, he essentially disappeared for six years. During that time, he completed a PhD in political science (a significant shift from his undergraduate degree in musical composition) and built modular synthesizers. In October of last year, he finally re-emerged with the release of his fourth album, Screen Memories. Saturday night brought him to a sold-out and packed Rock and Roll Hotel for his first DC live appearance since that previous record.
