Well SXSW is over. I had a great time at all the day parties and a few of the events at night. I never see as much as I hope for but I was happy to see Drivin n’ Cryin, Steve Poltz, Spirit Family Reunion and bands I’d never heard of like Telekinis and Hurray For The Riff Raff.
Here’s a group that was not down in Austin but judging from their sound would fit right in any time of year down there. Stella! and their new record Sorry, Stella came out in 2012 but is just now picking up traction and considerable radio play. Stella! consists of singer-songwriters Jen Sygit, Diana Ladio, Laura Ann Bates and Jo Serrapere. It’s a Michigan supergroup of sorts put together by Jo Serrapere one of the founding members of Uncle Earl. You can buy the new record here via the band.
