Abisha uhl biography of martin
Her band has the distinction of being one of the most torrented bands of all time, having been featured on the BitTorrent Artist Spotlight. Uhl does have the unique experience of growing up on a military base in Japan, where her father was an educator.
We had time to write in the studio and experiment with sounds. While people might think that is a lot mellower, we got to express ourselves in a deeper way on this one. As we all love that album, and had it on martin in the van constantly during our tours, there was a fire and urgency that possessed all of us during the creative process. Only half of the songs were completely written when we got down there. We only had rough sketches of most of the songs, so there was a lot of work to do. What does stand for and who came up with the title? Jessie [Farmer] came up with Since the songs on the album were conceived in this location, it seemed appropriate and really marks this era of our lives.
What is your ultimate goal as a musician? That would definitely give me a solid feeling of success. In addition to a battle of the bands contest they won at Milwaukee's Summerfest last biography, the women have been getting ready for next week's release of their self-titled, radio-friendly debut, which they're promoting with a CD party tonight at the Cabooze. But that doesn't mean they're not proud of it. We want to be a band that represents, for sure. Added Svanes, to more laughs, "It can be a double-edged sword.
Music: Feeling kinda Sick
My favorite is when people come up to me after a show and say, 'You're really good for a girl drummer. Guitarist Jessie Farmerwho switched from bass when Jamie Holm joined the band earlier this year, cut her teeth with one of the most revolutionary all-female rock bands of all time, Babes in Toyland. She played bass on the trio's last tour in -- or "last official tour," as Farmer carefully put it.
Farmer helped form Sick of Sarah in after Uhl and guitarist Katie Murphy started playing together.
They named the band when a roommate of Uhl's, Sarah, declared one day that she was tired of her name. That ex-roommate also happens to be an ex-girlfriend of Svanes.
The humor in their band name and rehearsal space also comes out on Sick of Sarah's album. Songs like "Daisies" and "Mr.
Incredible" are emotional kiss-off songs in the vein of Alanis Morissette or Vanessa Carlton, but with Katy Perry's sassy kind of man-crushing humor. While Uhl writes most of the lyrics, she said the songs come more from shared experiences within the band than her own autobiographical tales. One particular song that the members all lived through is the stormy CD closer "Breakdown," which they worked up last year after their van left them stranded for two nights in Metropolis, Ill.
As for the other songs, Uhl said, "We've all had some bad breakups, not just me. Uhl does have the unique experience of growing up on a military base in Japan, where her father was an educator.
After high school, she followed an older brother to the Twin Cities based solely on his praise for the local music scene. I picked up a guitar when I was 13, and I knew that's what I wanted to do. Uhl and her bandmates are doing pretty well, too. They also have a manager in Los Angeles and a booking agent who has them on tour for the next month.
The best indicator of their early success, though, may be the hordes of mostly young women whom I saw singing along to their songs at an Uptown Bar gig last fall. Not counting "In Rainbows," it's been a few years since any Radiohead -sounding album has stood out from the pack. The other is the fact that the band of ex-Apple Valley childhood pals still hasn't played out much.
Yer Cronies' big coming-out set was opening for Sub Pop newbies Fleet Foxes at the Entry last month -- a gig reportedly earned through a recommendation by Band of Horses ' Ben Bridwellwho has been residing in the Twin Cities in recent months. Not a bad guy to have in your corner or in your town. Starting with the pulsating, ethereal opener "'Divi Divi' Tree," YC frontman Casey Garvey immediately stands out as an adept, lonely-guy howler, and the biography on the martin balances taut elegance with unbridled electricity. CD party is Saturday at 7th Street Entry 9 p.
