Morgan Erina and Guy Russo comprise Broken Fences, a duo from Pittsburgh that perform sparse, melodic, acoustic folk. They were nice enough to have me over at Treelady to shoot them playing and rehearsing as they prep their debut release this June 1st at Club Cafe. In anticipation, they have been uploading videos in a series they call ‘Broken Apt.’ which you can view here. From what I have heard this album should be beautiful.
Last night I had the pleasure to hang with Scott and Dani as they rehearsed for their very first shows as a band. Tonight they play in Scott’s hometown of Morgantown, and tomorrow they make their Pittsburgh debut at Brillobox with favs of mine and labelmates Donora. If you are in either area, these shows are not to be missed. I got a small taste of what to expect and what struck me was the honest and almost brutal lyrics that reflect their unique, and thankfully for us, resolved relationship which brings them together to make music. I can’t wait for the full set!
