Win Tickets: Mary Lambert, Cellar Door, Really Old Airplanes at The Crocodile 8/29!Posted by James Reeves
Most of the time, one will hear about a band spending several months or perhaps a year in the studio, writing, mixing and mastering their album so that it can be released. In the case of Mary Lambert, however, her first release, Letters Don’t Talk, spans her work over the past decade of songwriting. Themes on her album span mightily across the board from lost love to addressing the issue of self-image. Lambert began her musical career at the age of 13 by playing in a local coffeehouse in north Everett every Friday night. Within several months, the coffeehouse became a regular hangout spot for the local residents where they came to listen to Lambert’s soft, haunting melodies and profound lyricism.
Recently, Lambert teamed up with Seattle’s own hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to write and record their new single, “Same Love,” a revolutionary song concerning gay marriage. Lambert’s full band features some of Seattle’s finest musicians, with members hailing from The Seattle Rock Orchestra, Sad Face, NeyeN, and Abbey Mae & the Homeschool Boys.
Supporting Mary Lambert at The Crocodile will be indie-pop group Cellar Door and folk-rock quartet Really Old Airplanes, who released their second album a few months ago and have opened for acts such as Good Old War, Local Natives, and Jack’s Mannequin.
