Angela Easterling lives with her partner and their young son on the South Carolina farm that has been in her family since 1791. She is a three-time Kerrville New Folk Finalist, a Telluride Troubadour Finalist and a two-time Wildflower Performing Songwriter Finalist. The Boston Herald named her song “The Picture” “Best Political Country Song” in their Year’s best music. Roger McGuinn, of the Byrds, called her “a bright shining star on the horizon!” and went on to say, “Her CD brought me back to the time the Byrds recorded “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” – tradition meets youthful exuberance.” Angela will release her 5th album, “Common Law Wife” in 2015.
Please join us for a house concert at our home in Berkeley with the band Flagship Romance on Thursday, August 20, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Suggested donation $15-20.
Flagship Romance consists of singer-songwriters Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson. To describe their sound, they have coined the term “Harmonic Alternative Folk.” Anchored by Fisher’s unique guitar playing, Flagship Romance compositions are centered around and feature the couple’s unclassifiable vocal blend.
In the midst of a mainstream culture, inundated by studio “perfection,” Fisher and Jackson plan on doing the exact opposite, referencing the old adage that honesty is the best policy. On the heels of a very successful crowd-funding campaign, which raised in excess of $25,000, Flagship Romance headed into the studio in January 2014 to record their first full-length album, entitled Fee Fie Foh Fum. The stripped tracks on this new album consist of full-takes, with no splicing or tuning. Given the intimate, yet energetic quality of their live performances, this new record is a raw, real, and organic experience. In addition to the album, Fisher and Jackson invited a team of professional cinematographers to travel with them and document the entire recording process. This behind the scenes documentary features the studio performances, the duo’s love-laced back-story, and the beautiful nature surrounding the home-studio. Fee Fie Foh Fum was released on physical formats (CD/DVD) in June 2014.
In today’s music market, where more and more avid listeners are clamoring for something honest and real, Flagship Romance plans to take that honesty, chemistry, and “real-ness” to new heights.
