Local Spins: Chain of Lakes CD release show WSG Mat Churchill.

May 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

This special “Local Spins Thursday” show at SpeakEZ Lounge features the compelling, much-admired indie-folk of Grand Rapids’ Chain of Lakes, led by singer-songwriter Kyle Rasche. The new studio album, “In&In,” moves beyond Rasche’s pared-back, spare and gorgeous folk with a full-band-flavored project that’s rife with a folk-rock, Americana and pop vibe, plentiful harmonies, uptempo foot-tappers and poignant ballads. The studio cast includes the likes of familiar West Michigan musicians such as Mat Churchill, Joshua Davis, Christian VanAntwerpen, Jordan Griffis, Eric Ellis, Dana Jackson and Kyle VanderVeen – all adding masterful touches to this collection of songs about preserving relationships and love through difficult times. Rasche pens well-crafted songs with lyrical depth, propelled by vocals that have made him an in-demand singer.

Also performing will be Mat Churchill, a member of Chain of Lakes, who also recently released an impressive new studio album, “God Bless These Shorter Days.” Churchill is a masterful, if understated writer and performer, with a distinctive style of his own.

Local Spins Wednesdays are presented by Local Spins, SpeakEZ Lounge,Perrin Brewing Company and WYCE, with Michigan beer specials on tap every Wednesday night and free parking in the lot on Monroe Avenue NW kitty-corner from SpeakEZ.
