This new monthly show at Public Assembly, part of its hotly anticipated move into the U.S, features a different lineup each month and offers emerging, developing and established artists a creative platform to perform in an environment that embraces collaboration and mutual support.

    Josh Mease on Coach House Sounds

    October 19th, 2010

    NYC b/w Houston musician Josh Mease rolled up on a beautiful Friday afternoon for his session with us. We walked over to Safari Cup, got some iced caffeine, and headed back to the coach house to get a quick set in before his radio spot at Fearless Radio, followed by an opening slot at our Schubas show that night. Warm and breezy tunes by a nice guy, a perfect antidote to the biting fall air.

    October 15th, 2010

    Clare and the Reasons appeared with Van Dyke Parks on NPR’s “Spinning On Air”. The show was named NPR’s Favorite Session:

    Clare and the Reasons have already developed an audience for their own sparkling songs, which strike a nice balance between tunefulness and thoughtfulness and are illuminated by a dazzling range of instrumental color. Singer-guitarist Clare Manchon and her multi-instrumentalist husband Olivier Manchon are joined by bassist/clarinetist/keyboardist Bob Hart and cellist Jon Cottle, and all join in on vocal harmonies. In this session, they perform three songs on their own before being joined by Parks…

    Clare and the Reasons on DAYTROTTER

    September 20th, 2010

    New Clare and the Reasons session on DAYTROTTER

    Goodness, the woman does redemption the way it stands to be done well. Clare Manchon of Clare and the Reasons seeks things in her days. It’s not that every single day needs rescuing, but the ones that do, believe us, she breaks out her jaws of life, or an intoxicating bottle or two of her finest wine and she snatches those days from halfway down the gullet of the beast. So many of the songs on her latest album, “Arrow,” remind me of a photocopied inspirational poster that my father had tacked to a corkboard in his office when I was younger. It featured a pelican or a stork – it was hard to really tell – that was trying to eat a frog. The little green creature was fully engulfed in the long-beaked birds mouth, with its legs sticking out sideways. Also sticking out from the far back of the bird’s mouth were the frog’s arms and with its webbed “hands” it was trying to choke the life out of the bird to save its own and at the bottom of the cartoon the caption read, “Never give up.” Read more…
