W/ Maria DeHart and Caragold
TV Star was formed in Seattle, WA in 2019, pulling influences from 90’s psych revival bands such as Mazzy Star, Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Spiritualized. After spending the first few years focusing on writing and recording, the group now works to present itself - and their home region of the Pacific Northwest - to the world with an honest and caring interpretation of the music they love.
Maria DeHart began writing songs during her college years in Charlottesville, Virginia. She currently resides in Portland, Oregon, where you can often find her playing local shows. During the spring of 2020, in the blurred-together, overlong, and impossibly-difficult-to-keep-track-of epoch of quarantine, DeHart dove into self-reflection. Navigating the complete lack of physical freedom of lockdown afforded her freedom of a new kind – the time to explore creatively and spontaneously.
While she usually performs with a band, DeHart shifted her focus to writing and recording, putting together a series of quiet and dreamy songs. From uncertainty and chaos, DeHart stitched together her latest EP, Quarantunes, a collection of comfortably crafted bedroom-pop songs that exists in liminal spaces: sun-dusted apartments, small bedrooms, and anywhere but outdoors.
Caragold started in a remote cabin overlooking Mt. Adams in Glenwood, WA. Founding member, Ross Charland, would retreat to the cabin every couple of months to write in solitude. Enough trips to the wilderness laid the foundation for their eponymous debut album, released in 2022. Yes, you may say that this stereotypical mecca to the cabin in the woods proved fruitful. Move over Bon Iver. Just kidding, '22, A Million' is an amazing record.
The current roster includes Colin Robson on bass, Jason Taylor on guitar and Stevie Driscoll on drums. Their music weaves between rock, psych, disco and pop. Their current live show is pure high energy. A real workout of a set. Fuzzy riffs, high harmonies, blatant overuse of chorus, gnarly feedback and lots of smiles. Really everything you could ever want in a performance. Do not miss them if you have the opportunity. Just make sure you stretch.
