#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“Softly, Dear has a very ‘Wisconsin’ sound. Portico is the debut effort from this Eau Claire-based band, who formed late summer 2012. After brewing for a while, it’s ready to breathe. Softly, Dear is made up of Tyler Hart, Josh Frederick, Alex Adkinson, Ben Possi and Addie Strei.”

Check out the self described “melodic, indie rock” band at their official Facebook, BandCamp, Twitter and Tumblr. Their latest release is the EP “Portico” via Mine All Mine Records, the CD version of which sold out but you can pick up the limited cassette copy. I want to thank Alex Adkinson (Drums/Backing Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
