Harmonious duo to take Mission Coffee stage
Submitted By Brask Concerts
With their top quality original songs, distinctive vocals and stage presence, they stand out from the pack, said Laura Bethel, Maverick Magazine (UK), of duo Misner & Smith. Tri-City residents will have the opportunity to experience their sound live when Brask Concerts at Mission Coffee hosts Misner & Smith Saturday, August 12.
With soaring vocal harmonies and story-filled, poetic songwriting, Misner & Smith's sound harkens back to the bedrock of modern American rock & folk. Paying tribute to strong influences like Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, and Buffalo Springfield, they invent a sound all their own, seducing listeners with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment.
With their fourth release, ÒSeven Hour Storm,Ó Misner & Smith have created an album of vivid poetic songwriting, filled with some of the finest harmony singing around. Working with producer Jeff Kazor and engineer Bruce Kaphan they have penned an album with lush, yet subtle arrangements, filling out an already rich sound that the duo is known for producing live.
Misner & Smith tour extensively, both at home and abroad, with state-wide stops including Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, PetalumaÕs Mystic Theatre, The Crepe Place in Santa Cruz, Genghis Cohen in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Old Time & Bluegrass Festival, Davis Music Fest, and San Francisco Free Folk Festival.
ÒMisner & Smith make a strong case for music with intricate simplicity and lyrical dignity. This duo is a treasure that needs to be shared.Ó Ð Jose Segue, Hicks with Sticks
