Garage Bar: Brice Randall Bickford / Sara Morris / Laurie Desch
Date: Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Show Starts: 7:00 pm
Brice Randall Bickford
Brice Randall Bickford has spent the past decade slowly refining his own strain of cerebral pop songwriting as “The Strugglers”, releasing his third and fourth albums on the Madrid-based label Acuarela Discos and touring Europe and the States multiple times along the way before deciding to step from behind his old moniker.
Bickford’s songs straddle the space between literature and music, belonging ultimately to neither world. Almighty tastemaker Pitchfork once praised his writing, observing that his lyrics often “trace a single thought or sketch a single image throughout the winding course of several bars, building suspense and making you wait patiently for the pay-off”.
In 2010 he relocated from Durham, NC to the nation’s capital with his wife and two children, and this past June released a new album recorded by visonary producer Scott Solter. He is currently writing and recording the follow-up.
Sara from Raleigh!
A native North Carolinian who recently returned to her home state after a 7-year stint in Chicago, Laurie has been playing guitar and writing songs since she was 13.
Inspired by literature, landscapes, love and love lost, she happily describes her sound as "melancholic bliss."
