Tuesday Tunes – “America” by Ryan Star
I first came across Ryan Star’s “The America EP” six years ago when it was offered as a free download on his website. Today’s song, “America,” is a song about the resilience of the American […]
Tuesday Tunes – “Certainty” by Sloucher
Today’s tune is a catchy number from Seattle’s own Sloucher. Don’t let the band’s name fool you; it’s evident from the first listen that these guys put a lot of heart into their music. “Certainty” […]
Tuesday Tunes – “Scott Street” by Phoebe Bridgers
This week’s tune comes from the Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers. “Scott Street” can be heard on her debut album, Stranger in the Alps, released on September 22nd. Like much of Stranger, “Scott Street” tackles the […]
Tuesday Tunes – “26” by Paramore
Today’s tune comes from Paramore’s latest album, After Laughter. While the album is a departure from the band’s established sound, trading pop-punk for an 80s new wave-influenced sound, “26” is a moment of calm amidst […]

Tuesday Tunes is back and this week, I’m featuring the newest single from Noah Gundersen, “The Sound.” Released yesterday with a lyric video, the song marks a change in direction for the Seattle-based singer-songwriter as he adopts a heavier electric sound. The new sound is not a complete surprise, though, as Gundersen’s full-band project Young in the City leans in this direction, as did some songs on his last solo album, Carry the Ghost.

Rise Above It: Jon Foreman’s Lyrics and My Fight Against Fear
“How this works is that it’s like busking, except there’s no money involved.”
From the front steps of Grace Cathedral, Jon Foreman addressed the fans gathered to see his aftershow performance. Minutes earlier at The Masonic, a venue just steps away from the cathedral, Foreman’s band Switchfoot kicked off the second leg of the Tour de Compadres along with Needtobreathe, Colony House, and Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. Foreman began playing “Only Hope,” and I was overcome with emotion as two realizations hit me: one, that I was in California, and two, that I was finally attending one of Foreman’s famous aftershows. As I sang softly along with the crowd, I hardly noticed the chilly air and occasional raindrops; a welcome change from the crushing humidity of Virginia.
