Locals Only Playlist: February 24th with Brenda Xu, James Anaya & The Current, and Trevor Boone of The Hollers

February 26, 2019

Brenda Xu

I had a great time with extra guests on Locals Only this week. 

In the first hour I was joined by Brenda Xu. I have been a big fan of Brenda since I first heard her 2017 release Overflow and have wanted to get her on show ever since. Brenda brought her guitar with her and played two beautiful songs live in the studio for us. We talked about how she got started in Seattle when she moved up here from California about eight years ago, how scary it can be to pick your passion back up after taking some time off and what it's like to make the transition from having a day job to being a fulltime musician. 

Brenda Xu will be performing at Tractor Tavern on March 7th in support of Laura Viers and she will be at the Columbia City Theater on April 11th supporting local band Spinster for their album release. Local singer Tekla Waterfield and Lana of the band Lyle will be joining Brenda for both of those shows but there will also be a string quartet backing her up on April 11th. Don't miss these performances.

In the second hour I got a visit from James Anaya and he brought our buddy Trevor Boone of The Hollers with him. James Anaya & The Current recently released a rad new music video for their song "Jimmy, Dream On" and we talked about everything that went into making that. It's pretty cool. Just look...

On top of all that Trevor revealed that The Hollers have some new music on the way possibly this spring. Can't wait for that!

You can see James Anaya & The Current along with The Hollers and Decent At Best this Saturday night (3/2) at The Sunset in Ballard. You'll be happy you did.
