Arthur Lee and Love
Sophisticated instrumentation, hooky experiments with pace, and gorgeously evocative lyrics.
Belle & Sebastian
Easily a contemporary legendary act. This group is prolific, relevant, and adventurous.
The band that makes me remember how life ought to feel and keeps my fire lit. The harmonies make them the Audobon of pop.
This is a band that is embarking on what to me feels like a Belle & Sebastian adventure. Listeners need to jump on board and stay!
Death Cab for Cutie
This band manages to speak to teens and draw them into the world of important music. These guys are poets, story tellers, compelling musicians, and never dull.
