We're About 9

It's Kate.
“No blog tracks found for: we're, about and 9 :(“

I arrived at the Cat in the Cream with my usual set of expectations: better than average means better than mediocre, and I go to as many of their free concerts as I can, so I'm not making this up. I was blown away by We’re about 9 almost as soon as they’d arrived on stage; both Katie Graybeal and Brian Gundersdorf have great voices for folk music, their songs are incredibly vibrant, and their lyrics are funny and smart. Not to mention the fact that they kept the audience laughing with banter between songs. Why had I never heard of this band before? The first set came and went, I bought an album, I came back for the second set. The folk music became more personal, more low-key, and the appeal remained the same.

Anyway, after the show I went up and talked to Brian for what ended up being a good half hour. The band has been playing together for 7 years and is releasing their newest album this month. They played a bunch of songs from it at the show, and all of them were excellent. I don’t have an mp3s from it to give you at the moment, but hopefully that will change sometime the near future. The ones below are from their some of their older albums, and hopefully will make you fall in love with them.

    These guys/gal played Bethlehem a while back. The Duke and The Duchess had a drink with the band after their set. Down to earth people making fun/well-crafted music. Good on ya, Kate for helping spread the word on 9.
