Smoke Season at El Corazon 12/13
Last weekend Smoke Season was in Seattle on the Cold Souls tour. The band is comprised of Gabrielle Wortman and Jason Rosen, with musicians Gabe Davis and Christopher Roberts joining them for this tour. Recently named the #1 Breakout Los Angeles Band of 2014 and fresh off a series of shows in New York City as part of CMJ, Smoke Season is a band who is right now flying under the radar of many music lovers out there but won’t be for long. The band came to town following a morning in the ER in Portland but did Gabrielle let that slow her down? Of course not. Despite being sick, she still belted out every note with all she had in her. Their sound is a mixture of Americana, infused folk with electronic undertones and rich vocal harmonies. As best described by Los Angeles Magazine, Smoke Season is “the Black Keys heard through a cloud of marijuana smoke.” Chances are it is like nothing you’ve heard before and they are seeing success because of that.
Don’t miss these guys when they come back to town next year. A little birdy told me that it’s going to be at Neumos.
