Widowspeak remain purveyors of mood. Whether speaking plainly to the mundane details of modern life, dealing in heartbreak and hooks, or conjuring the sweeping openness of a wide angle landscape, they’re a band ever-concerned with the influence of place and the passage of time on personal experience: the way vivid memories can feel like movies or dreams. Anchored by the creative partnership of singer-songwriter Molly Hamilton and guitarist Robert Earl Thomas, Widowspeak in essence operates as a duo: the two write songs with ear-wormy choruses and big guitar chords, supported by warm and expansive arrangements. But they record (and tour) as a full band.

Support: Laena Myers

Laena Myers’ experimental punk background of guitar-based songwriting merges with her classical roots and love for singing ballads, leading to a depth of emotion that cuts to the heart of even the most hardened.

Laena Myers’ music is the Los Angeles sound we don’t get to hear very often, one that is birthed in the hidden places — unbearably hot bedrooms, caves, not-so-fancy neighborhoods, as well as the hidden places within the artist herself. It is unfiltered but well-crafted, portraying an evocative singer, talented musician, and compelling writer that invites us to come closer and dig deeper.
