Three local songwriters weave together past, present, and future with tune and verse in pursuit of emotional truth.
Wanderer, wonderer, journeyman, folksinger Nate Taylor fuses story and experience on a quest for connection through music to people, to nature, to truth. Often compared to Nick Drake for his resonant fingerpicking, Taylor paints an ethereal soundscape with his soaring vocals that implores a kind of reverence for the moment. His songs wrestle with love, loss, and purpose in pursuit of the ideal that music can be a force for understanding in an ever more disparate world. While a faithful steward of the Boston folk scene for much of the year, Taylor completed his third annual house show tour in 2017, affectionately titled There And Back Again, or TABA 2017, covering 8300 miles and living out his vision of community through music. In November 2017, Taylor released A Love Story | Live From America, a collection of five live recordings from TABA 2017. Join the adventure when Nate comes to your town in 2018.
Sasha Milan Band
Sasha Milan Band is a three-part indie/folk group consisting of Tom Q on bass and vocals, Dave Pierce on drums, and Sasha Milan on guitar and vocals. Sasha’s songwriting often weaves personal narrative with themes drawn from folklore, mythology and other stories. Sasha believes that these stories, when set to music, can be powerful access points to the workings of our subconscious. With a blend of acoustic and electric instrumental banter, melancholy yet uplifting lyricism is delivered through dynamic melodies and grounded by driving rhythms.
Tom Q is a practitioner of Love Punk Magic, a unique approach to songwriting which focuses on personal growth through the excavation of buried emotions. With music that frequently juxtaposes soothing melodies and jarring rhythms, we are invited to witness and participate in an ongoing effort to develop compassion for the paradoxical nature of our shared humanity.
