Leagues – Spotlight

Nashville’s Leagues has just released a free maxi-single for the track Spotlight (which you might’ve heard on WFPK). The song does a great job of capturing the intense energy of the band’s live performance.

Speaking of which, Leagues is playing at the Fest-a-Ville on April 30 alongside the Same Roberts Band. So you’ll have a chance to find out for yourself just how crazy Thad Cockrell and the gang can be.

Live Lunch April 25: Noah Gundersen

noahgundersen

Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

Pacific Northwesterner Noah Gundersen is opening for Katie Herzig this Saturday at Headliners, and he’ll be swinging by the studio for Live Lunch on Friday. Here’s a little bit more about Noah and his latest album:

Ledges was self-produced and recorded at Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard’s Studio Litho in Seattle, and it represents the latest stop in a journey which began in his conservative, religious home growing up, where he was strictly forbidden to listen to secular music. Instead he grew up listening to Bob Dylan’s gospel albums, along with Christian artists such as Keith Green, Larry Norman and Rich Mullins. “I’m not a religious person anymore, but I’ve learned that spiritual energy transcends religion and that’s something I’ve attempted to incorporate into my music,” Noah explains.
