Barna Howard, Planes on Paper, WIDOWER

  • Honey at Alma Mater 1322 Fawcett Avenue Tacoma, WA, 98402 United States (map)

Barna Howard - Barna’s self-titled debut chronicled these moves as he struggled with the contrast between his small town upbringing and these big city wanderings. The album was met with critical acclaim and underground success, partly thanks to an opportunely placed song in the hit indie film, Drinking Buddies. One critic even likened him to some “lost genius of the 60’s.”

The songs on Barna Howard’s second album, Quite A Feelin’, ruminate on his relationship with home. Now entrenched in Portland, Oregon, many of the album’s tracks immortalize and reflect on the Eureka he once knew, while others focus on the relationships that define his new home out west. Small town life has long been celebrated in country and folk music, but Barna’s knack for capturing his own deeply personal nostalgia resonates in a rarely universal way.

Planes on Paper - "The songs played by Planes on Paper have contemplation at their core. As heard on the Yakima duo's sole EP, Ruins, Navid Eliot and Jen Borst use delicate harmonies, well-wrought lyricism, and a deep understanding of pop songcraft to patiently explore ideas and landscapes that bloom from banal to unforgettable." -Mark Baumgarten, Seattle Weekly

"Navid Eliot and Jen Borst’s music as Planes on Paper is built around the duo’s talent for crafting layered, meticulous folk songs matched with organic, skillful playing."
-KEXP - Seattle, WA - 

WIDOWER - New Jersey native, Seattle staple, and off and on again New Yorker, Kevin Large has been making music under the WIDOWER moniker for over a decade. Large’s lyrically driven songwriting is reminiscent of Petty’s more mellow moments. There’s a cinematic sentiment to these songs, like a car in the rain in a Cameron Crowe film.
