American Scarecrows

Seth Davin leads the band American Scarecrows. They move with ease between simple, whiskey-soaked country rock, and straight-forward pop. As their single “Gods of the West” hit radio, we met with Seth in the cozy abode where he does most of his writing—and tries to keep things simple.

Kerry Alexander & Chris Hoge

Bad Bad Hats

Kerry and Chris were kind enough to open up their shared apartment where they do most of their writing and demoing. Together they form Bad Bad Hats, an infectious combo loved for their catchy, perfect little pop tunes. We joined them just before work began on their debut full length, Psychic Reader.

Episode 2

Savannah Smith

Savannah Smith is a folky solo ukelele-based singer / songwriter. Though her lyrics are often dark with emotional depth, her music inherits the whimsey of her chosen instrument—a powerful juxtaposition. We followed Savannah while she was in the middle of successfully funding her first record on Pledge Music.
