Private show in a house in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
Deep River is Rachel Beauregard, Bryan Dawley, and Luke Brindley, a power-folk trio from Virginia who create their own brand of music they’ve termed “Front Porch Pop”. It’s a fluid, sonic experience combining elements of pop, folk, and blues with straight-up homegrown sass. Deep River’s latest album, “Ten Mornings” was released in November to two sold out shows and they were recently featured in Paste Magazine’s Best Of What’s Next.
Matthew Larsen has been a member of the vibrant Western Massachusetts music scene for a few decades, attracting audiences with introspective piano rock songs. Sometimes short, quiet and sweet– other times building into wall-of-sound Hotel-California-like anthems, Matthew’s songs often recall serious health issues (Matthew underwent a stem cell transplant at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston in 2005). Apheresis, Matthew Larsen and The Documents’ forthcoming full-length recorded with Dave Chalfant (The Nields) at his Conway, MA. studio is slated to be released in March of 2011.
