Fairy Bones is an energetic rock outfit from Phoenix. Their no gimmick, kickass approach caught the eye of Highly Suspect, who brought them on a west coast tour this past autumn. Fronted by Chelsey Louise, the band released Dramabot in 2015, which garnered a lot of respect from the media and fans in Arizona.
Tony Ruland was the guitarist in the Washington-based band for a decade of his life. The band suddenly broke up, but he wasn’t too worried. He had music built up and ready to explode into the world. He linked up with fellow northwestern musicians to create Soft Sleep. Continue reading “Ep. 9: Tony Ruland | Soft Sleep + The Lonely Forest”

Joel Marquard is one of my favorite musicians. He was an original guitarist in Dear and the Headlights – one of the best bands to ever break out of Phoenix – and he is the mastermind behind so many more projects: Gospel Claws (not a gospel band), the Through and Through Gospel Review (a gospel band), Samuel L Cool J, and Spiritual Warfare.
I have been a super fan of his since I was in high school and was lucky enough to get to know him throughout the years. His bands have produced some of my favorite musical memories and I wanted to get to know more about what drove him to make some of the best pop songs I’ve heard.
