We give a listen to the latest releases by Nights, Seafair and Jann Klose James Bigley II
Jenna Fournier's ethereal voice is the centerpiece of Nights' sophomore release,
which swings from soft and melodic synth to percussion-and bass-driven beats. Standouts
include the windows-down anthem "Mouthful of Sand" and "Rosebush," a worthy soundtrack
for summer sunsets. nightsband.tumblr.com
Violin, piano, cello, drums and guitar converge beautifully on Seafair's debut EP.
Lead vocalist Chayla Hope's voice rises and falls with grit and grace on songs such
as "Just Faded Lines," a soft pairing of piano and violin that builds into a ground-shaking
rock ballad. facebook.com/seafairtheband
Jann Klose came to Cleveland as a foreign exchange student and toured with Broadway
shows before focusing on songwriting. His second full-length album is a mix of styles,
exuding a reggae/indie-folk vibe on "Four Leaf Clover," while going a capella for
a cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren."
