Lower Lights Burning

The sleepy hamlet of Shelton is a ways from Seattle’s noisy urban jungle, but for the three members of the folk rock group Lower Lights Burning, it’s the hotbed of musical creativity they call home. Their breezy brand of folk recalls the sounds of a quieter life outside the city with tender acoustic guitar, lonesome, echoey harmonica, and frontman Graydon Holden’s soft, restrained vocals, which carry a gentleness that recalls Nick Drake or Damien Jurado. They’ll be celebrating the release of their new album Coming Back, which sounds at times like the wind whistling through evergreens. With Kris Doty, Hannah Williams. GWENDOLYN ELLIOTT
