Just when the weather started to rid our city from all of the happiness and cheer of the summer season, the music gods up above gave Spokane beautiful creations, news and happenings to be jolly about.
Marshall McLean is working on a new album, with help from Caleb Ingersoll of Cathedral Pearls and Jamie Frost from The Makers, and from the fans who are actively feeding his Kickstarter campaign. As of today, he is at 29 percent of his goal of $4,000. All you cats out there, hop on the Marshall McLean bandwagon ASAP. He's opening for The Avett Brothers in August at the music festival in Sandpoint. This cat is going places. Go along for the ride.
Mrs. Ingersoll is also keeping busy. You most likely know her as one of the talented foursome behind Cathedral Pearls. In her spare time, Karli Ingersoll has been featuring other local groups via CollectSpokane on YouTube. The latest of these Collect Sessions was posted a few days back and features the band Mama Doll. Take a peak, fall in love and show your friends.
Next up is some great news for Folkinception. Thanks to over 100 people, their Kickstarter project has been funded, meaning they can finally record their first full-length album. We loved going to their shows and now in just a short amount of time we can carry their folk greatness where ever we go. Consider us excited.
And finally, we leave our dear local music fan with a joyous reminder. Terrible Buttons is releasing their album RUNT on July 12. Mark your calendar.
