Local Artists Reign at the Kings Rook Club by Miriam Lamey

Friday, Aug. 5

Hot off their performance opening for 10,000 Maniacs, Smilo & The Ghost take the stage at the Kings Rook Club on Aug. 5. Folk rock and Americana will be the evening’s king and queen, as Tyler Smilo, lead singer and guitarist, is joined by Adam McKillip (mandolin, vocals), Jassen Wilber (bass), Abby Barrett (violin and viola), and Eric Brewer (lap steel, guitar).

Together, both acts are sure to put on a royally uplifting performance with plenty of perky tunes and a positive vibe.

But what is a monarchy without its lords and ladies? Brenna Bone and Seann Clark, also local artists, bring a touch of courtly country music to the evening. Bone is only 23, works part time as a respiratory therapist, and is clearly dedicated to performing and learning more about music. “If I am not at the hospital working,” she writes on her website, “I am playing music and writing as much as I possibly can!” With pretty yet strong vocals and a delicate acoustic-based sound, Bone’s tunes are easy, accessible, and certainly catchy. For a taste of what to expect, check out “Sky Sees Everything,” a dreamy, poppy track through which her clear vocals cut and soar. Light acoustic guitar holds a tight rhythm over echoing keys, and a solid drum beat unites the arrangement. Together, both acts are sure to put on a royally uplifting performance with plenty of perky tunes and a positive vibe. – Miriam Lamey
