“Sera Cahoone is a long way from home. Growing up the daughter of a dynamite salesman in the Colorado foothills, she got her start on the drums at 11, and at 12 her mom was taking her to dive bars to sit in with the scruffy old bluesmen. By the time she picked up a guitar, she had been so shaped by these things – the dynamite, the blues, the woods and the hills – it’s no surprise she went on to be one of the strongest songwriters in Seattle’s ever-vibrant Americana scene. Since migrating to Seattle in 1998, she has played with Carissa’s Wierd, Band of Horses, Betsy Olson, and singer-songwriter Patrick Park. She released her solo debut in 2006, and her widely acclaimed Sub Pop debut Only as the Day Is Long in 2008.”
Find Sera at her official Website, FaceBook, Twitter and MySpace. Her current tour supporting her latest album, “Deer Creek Canyon“, hits Pittsburgh tonight at The Rex as she opens up for Kathleen Edwards. My thanks to Sera for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
Thanks, Sera. Big fan of Carissa’s Wierd. Looking forward to finally seeing you live tonight.
This is one great bill. I easily would have seen any of these artists by themselves. The fact that they are playing together makes this a must see show for me. Thanks to Drusky Entertainment, I have a pair of passes to give away. As always, entering is really easy. Just email me at email@example.com with the subject line ‘Sea Wolf’ and provide the name in the message that you want for the folks at will call the night of the show. This is good for you and a friend to attend. The show is all ages. The winner will be randomly picked and contacted on Saturday September 18. Good luck and I will hopefully see you there.
