Maryse Smith with Michael Chorney and Francesca Blanchard at Light Club Lamp Shop February 19, 2018   Leave a comment

IMG_8023

 

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Mondays ago at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was the third night of the Maryse Smith residency and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I got in and settled and Michael Chorney took the stage with an acoustic guitar and began to play. He opened with a couple of winter themed songs. One was about going from the east coast to the west and I missed details about the second but it was well crafted and as lovely as all of his songs are. He said he was from down south in Bristol and told stories of jam sessions at a local establishment. He continued on with songs about not doing what we just did again and singing out loud. He closed his set with a song about Caledonia and everyone was in a happy place.

Maryse and Francesca Blanchard joined him, with Maryse singing and playing acoustic and Francesca just singing. Their voices blended as beautifully as they did the week before. Maryse’s and Michael’s guitars similarly wrapped themselves around each other in a breathtaking way. They opened with Good Thing and followed with I Forgot. They sang the song about heading off for the stars and the song she wrote in Philadelphia about grabbing your pen and writing about it. They sang about having half a mind and about wine clouding your mind. Hold Me was wonderful as was New And Strange. Liar was as sharp and poignant as ever and they closed the night with the lovely 15 Steps.

It was another brilliant night of music in our town.

Maryse Smith and band pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Monday’s ago at Light Club Lamp Shop. On the first night of the Maryse Smith residency she played solo, the Ivamae played solo then Maryse finished the night. I was expecting the same thing except with Francesca Blanchard and was happily proven wrong. Maryse was set up with her acoustic guitar and vocal mic, there was a guy named Brett on electric guitar, Francesca was set up to sing backing vocals and Jane Boxall Percussion had a couple of drums and cymbals and other percussion instruments. A smile floated across my face. They began with I Forgot then followed with Liar. Jane added a subtle beauty to the songs and Brett’s guitar added a little bite. Francesca and Maryse’s voices blended with elating beauty. They followed with a song about the phone ringing and being late then heading off for the stars. Francesca left the stage and the rest of the band played the lovely 15 Steps. Brett left after that and Maryse sang about half a mind. I missed details about the next song but it was as strong as all the others. She closed her first set with an old song about Dave going to work.

Francesca came back to the stage and sang and played guitar. She played a song about wandering and looking for love then played a fantastic version of My Heart. It grabbed my from the first note and was pure bliss. She sang a song in French and the title translates to you do not exist. She sang about letting go of loving you and played her new song Maria. Brett joined her for a couple of songs including a fun version of Wicked Game to close the set. She is just amazing.

Maryse returned to the stage for Good Thing and a cool version of The Way It Is. The other members of the band joined her a different points but I slacked in my notes so I’m not sure who played on what. She played a fun cover of I’ll Fly Away and a searing version of Hold Me. Orlando was stark and beautiful. The line about how winter is coming brought forth New And Strange then they played a song about their friend Ron. She played the only song she wrote while in Philadelphia and followed with I Got A Job. She closed the night with a song about angels and devils in you and one about hearing this song before.

It was so great to hear some of the songs she played the week before with the music interplay of the band. It was another amazing night of music in our town.

Song before Shine – Stoneman Douglas Drama Club

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Please join me on a ride through some deep cuts from Burlington’s past to music that was released this week. Let’s start a decade ago with an amazing song.

1.) Bad Oasis – farm
2.) Cancer – SWALE
3.) On Backstreets – Eastern Mountain Time
4.) Small Town Movie – The Cush

Movie is one of those songs that everyone always loves when they play live. Cool new song from Eastern who are at Zenbarn tonight. Cancer is from Swale’s first EP Verdigris. I want to send that out to everyone who is dealing with cancer, whether it’s you, your family or a loved one. Keep up the fight and make sure you have lots of friends to help. I love that Farm song. OK, here is the next song on Black, Blue & White.

5.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians
6.) Judgment Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Honest Will – The Parts
8.) Cemetery Walks – Ryan Ober and The Romans

Great new song from his Caveman Blues album. It was great to chat with Ryan last Monday at the Maryse Smith show. Cool new song from Danny LeFrancois and the band. I’ve played Judgment before but this is the brand new final mix from the upcoming Book Of Zoo album. Such a fantastic song from the Siberians. So, I made it out to the three Monday residency shows that Maryse has done at Light Club Lamp Shop this month. There is another opportunity next Monday. She’s played a lot of cool songs but maybe not this one.

9.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith
10.) Luminous – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
11.) Kids – Wren Kitz
12.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried Band

I love thinking about the magic and mystery in and around life. Robin and the band are playing Saturday at On Tap Bar and Grill. Wren will be at Autumn Records on Saturday. I chose Kids to honor all of the kids standing up to their schools and governments and TV personalities to try and stop the gun violence. Have it kids!! Michael joined Maryse last Monday and it was so wonderful to hear their guitars weave together, while Francesca Blanchard weaved her voice with Maryse’s. Next week should be pretty magical too. This next band are playing tonight at Red Square.

13.) Three Feels Right – gneiss
14.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
15.) The Mists – Aram Bedrosian
16.) Crimescene – Dino Bravo VT

That’s a cool newer song from Dino that was recorded at our Robot Dog Studio session last year. Great work as always from Aram. Francesca is playing Sunday at Higher Ground. Great song from Gneiss from a Robot Dog session last year too. This next singer moved away but comes back now and then.

17.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
18.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
19.) Bob Marley And The Hartford Whalers – The Zambonis
20.) Green Apple Girl – Cranial Perch

Perch played lovely chaotic music in the ’90’s. Zambonis played songs about hockey in the ’90’s. Pigeon had that super cool kind of mysterious sound in the ’90s’. I love the power of Hero. Here’s another band from the ’90’s.

21.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
22.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
23.) Golgi Apparatus – The Pants
24.) High Water Mark – Belizbeha

Belizbeha played acid jazz in the ’90’s. That’s a cover of a Pants song. That’s the Pants covering Phish. Zola always rocked. Great song from Starlight. Let’s play another song about the power of water.

25.)The Sea Is powerful – Wide Wail
26.) Daydreaming – Thanya Iyer
27.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

Such a powerful song from Anais. Thanya are from Montreal but stopped by the Lamp Shop on Tuesday and played a great show. Wail were so great in the ’90’s. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Maryse Smith and Ivamae at Light Club Lamp Shop February 5, 2018   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Mondays ago at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was the first night of the Maryse Smith residency and it had been ages since I had heard her sing live. I got out the door and took the lovely walk downtown and was in and settled by the 10pm start time. The room was full of local musicians and fans and she took the stage with a smile. Her guitar playing was sweet and the songs sounded great but it was the first few notes of her voice that filled my heart. She sang songs about something on the tip of her tongue and being stood up. She sang about half a mind. She said she wouldn’t go on loving you forever and wouldn’t want to burden you with that. She sang about heading off to the stars and about how everybody has a reason why. I should have listened to her songs more so I knew the titles but just being there to experience them was heartwarming. Up next was Liar and it was as terrifying and wonderful as ever. She ended her first set with The Way It Is.

Up next Ivamae took the stage. She sang and played a mellow electric guitar. She opened with a song about falling out of love but not out of place. She followed with a cover about how everything means nothing if I ain’t got you. Tender Meat was lovely then she sang about loving you through all the bliss and pain. She played a few more passionate songs and closed her set with a song about not being able to change the truth. She was as magnificent as always.

Maryse came back to the stage and pulled out classics like Good Thing and I Forgot. She sang about how winter is coming and I’m still here then played a great version of 15 Steps. She played a couple more and ended with one about hearing that song before, then called it a night.

It was so great to hear her sing again and even nice to know she was playing the next three Monday’s.
