brother teresa 700

by Jacob Unterreiner

Brother Teresa really wants you to dance, but they don’t want to make it easy for you. The band’s acrobatic, boogie-inducing riffs are infectious, but sometimes they come in irregular time signatures; forcing the audience to think before they groove.

The band is fronted by a pair of singer-guitarists in Joe Allie and Salah Moharram, and is rounded out by bassist Bailey Stewart and drummer Dom Crooks. I sat down with the whole confounding crew in order to discuss their evolution as a band and their debut record: Jam Chill Slam…Read More →

by Jacob Unterreiner

No matter what type of music you play, standing out as a musician is a difficult task. However, for singer-songwriters, standing out is nearly impossible. The sound of soft, folky strums of acoustic singer-songwriters can be heard at every coffee shop, bookstore, and art gallery in the Valley…Read More →

I have to admit. This one took me by surprise. Not the award; the EP itself. It totally came out of my left-field and smacked me in the face. And, I wasn’t the only one down here at YabYum that reported this strange phenomena…Read More →

office favorite 700
