Whippoorwill – Good to be Around

The underlying sound of Whippoorwill’s debut release should not be something unfamiliar to frequenters of the NoCo music scene, despite the relatively new name for the duo. Released on 4/20, the project consists of Alysia Kraft (The Patti Fiasco) and singer/songwriter Staci Foster, showcasing the folk-rock/Americana roots of Wyoming and Texas upbringings, respectively speaking. Poised harmonies weave between acoustic ballads and Tom Robbins-inspired Western romps, as both Kraft and Foster […]

It’s possible that I’m simply partial to the genre, but how can you not have some sort of biological appreciation for some dirty, electric whiskey blues? It has emerged as one of the most primal of modern styles, an organically emotional, earthly sound born in mud and sweat, invigorated only further by the amplifier. It […]

In her search for shut-eye, Renee self-medicated with alcohol, became addicted to Ambien and then Lunesta, tried three anti-anxiety medications and also explored a number of more natural solutions. “I started using edibles for sleep a year ago.
