'Best of' nods from afar ...
We're thrilled to share that our music has been included on two "best of" lists in 2017. First off, the east coast music blog Cover Lay Down has listed our new album, headwaters, as one of the year's best 'coverfolk' albums!
"Headwaters, the fifth album from California duo Misner & Smith, and their first covers compilation; a homespun collection that finds Sam and Megan, a pair of actors-turned-folk rock/Americana band, yawing wide as they bring diverse songs and influences from The Talking Heads and Dr. Dog to Gram Parsons and The Lovin’ Spoonful into their own sharp and distinctive harmonic register."
Second, the Chicago-based online magazine Consequence of Sound, has singled out our album, Live at the Freight & Salvage in a short list of "Five Great Albums Recorded in Coffeehouses".
"This folk duo is the least-known act on this list, which makes their live set at Freight & Salvage Coffee House the perfect introduction to their work. Over 11 tracks, they treat an appreciative audience to the evocative lyricism of their first two albums—rife with narratives that blend history, fictional characters, and of course, Misner & Smith’s immaculately braided vocal harmonies."
