Dax Riggs – Say Goodnight To The World [Happy Halloween!]

October 31, 2011

Dax Riggs’ live session with us was the most appropriate to dig up for Halloween. I’m pretty sure his voice pulls spirits from their graves. Dax Riggs – Say Goodnight To The World (HearYa Live Session) Dax Riggs – Let Me Be Your Cigarette (HearYa Live Session) Dax Riggs – Sleeping With The Witch (HearYa […]

Trampled By Turtles, Live Session #90

June 28, 2011

Trampled By Turtles are my kind of Bluegrass band. They don’t have that clean, crisp Nashville sound you may think of when you think “Bluegrass music.” Instead, they embrace a looser sound that blends rock and punk into their twang. TxT hails from Duluth, MN and have quietly released five albums, the latest of which […]

The Low Anthem, Live Session #88

May 2, 2011

9/11 was suddenly thrust back into our minds last night and today as we learn the details surrounding Osama Bin Laden’s death. We were collectively shaken to our core after the fall of the Twin Towers and the events of 9/11 inspired lyrics in many songs released in 2001 and the years following. Songs like […]

The Mynabirds, Live Session #80

November 4, 2010

For the right people, obstacles become opportunity and hardship becomes promise. After the breakup of her previous band, a duo called Georgie James, Laura Burhenn gathered her favorite music, books, and friends and began crafting the music that would become The Mynabirds.

These United States – Study The Moon, unreleased live session video

September 11, 2009

Here is the second video from our live session with These United States. “Study The Moon” was the last track from the session, which explains the dripping sweat. Thanks to everyone in the band for a solid effort. I especially enjoy the kung fu segment at the end. Video: These United States – Study The […]

HearYa Live Sessions: Lollapalooza 2009 Compilation! [Free Album]

August 27, 2009

When I looked at this year’s Lollapalooza lineup, it was special to see seven HearYa Live Session alumni on the roster. Two more (The Henry Clay People and The Low Anthem) stopped in for breakfast sessions during the fest. To celebrate this non-historic event, our live session producer Steve Shirk was nice enough to put […]

HearYa Live Session 48: Other Lives

June 9, 2009

I have had the privilege of seeing many phenomenal acts roll through the HearYa studio for some intimate personal concerts. I don’t think there has been a session yet that has moved me like this one, featuring Stillwater, Oklahoma band Other Lives. Their arrangements are simply amazing and they have a unique ability to sound […]

HearYa Live Session 43: Hacienda

March 31, 2009

Hacienda, the foursome from San Antonio, recently rolled into the studio sporting some serious Auerbachs. For those wondering, an Auerbach is a long bushy beard similar to the one worn by Black Keys lead singer, Dan Auerbach (patent pending). Hacienda’s 2008 release, Loud Is The Night (produced by Auerbach) has been a staple in my […]
