Boise’s Americana Sweethearts! Indie Alt Country Darlings!

  • For A Fool
  • Mess You Up
  • a.k.a. Belle

    Nicknamed ’Americana Sweethearts’ by weekly local arts & culture rag, The Boise Weekly, a.k.a. Belle are also commonly referred to as Boise’s ”Indie – Alt – Country Darlings” — certainly there is an edge to their Americana – roots rock n roll, as listening to their debut album, ”Disappearing Night” reveals.

    The album came out in late December 2011, spent several weeks in the Top 20 Best Sellers list at The Record Exchange and, in fact, ”Disappearing NIght” made it into the Ten Top Selling Local Albums of 2012!

    The track ”Austin Calling” continues to get airplay on the Treasure Valley’s largest commercial radio station, The River 94.9fm. a.k.a. Belle are highly championed by their morning host, Tim Johnstone, as well as being favorites of Carl Scheider, DJ at (NPR affiliated) KBSU. ”Living Room Radio,” a Friday afternoon show on 89.9fm Radio Boise, listed ’Disappearing Night’ as one of their top albums of the year.

    a.k.a. Belle formed in 2008, after Catherine Crooks Merrick (vocals, guitars, banjo) returned home to Boise after several years of living and performing under the moniker Belle
    of Les Bois in Manchester, England. She recruited long time accomplice Sam Merrick to play guitar (ex-Hillfolk Noir, The Nymphs, The Leaving Trains). (Yes, they are married.)

    No strangers to the music business, each has worked with or supported some famous names (Curtis Stigers; Bill Kirchen; Doug Martsch from Built to Spill; John Doe & Exene Cervenka from LA band X; Iggy Pop; Elizabeth Cook; Holly Golightly, Lydia Loveless…just to name a few)

    Current live shows feature Louis McFarland on percussion and Chris Galli on stand up bass; and Kayleigh Jack on violin, vocals and guitar.

    Sam and Catherine recently appeared on Boise Song Talk, a local television series showcasing local songwriters who discuss their craft/ songwriting with host James Coberly Smith. http://boisesongtalk.com/

    Christmas 2010’s Moxie Java local artist/band compilation includes a.k.a. Belle’s holiday hit, “I’m Giving Mice Elf to You” which has been on permanent rotation on The River’s Morning Show every Christmas since its release.

    ”For a Fool,” was the inspiration for a stop motion painting/animation video by Boise artist, Shasta Nash. Shasta used the acoustic version of the song (written & recorded in England), which was shown at the 2011 ”208 Music Video Show” and took 1st prize.

    The band also took part in a pilot series hosted by John Doe called ”American Music.” a.k.a. Belle served as his backing band (with Catherine duetting) on several songs. http://www.wideeye.tv/original_programming.html

    Work on their 2nd album (working title ’The Devil Loves You’), has begun at AudioLab Recording Studios, and the band anticipate its release sometime this spring. The direction is slightly darker, including themes of time travel and urban myths about a serial killer who lives in Boise’s foothills.

    Andrew Jameson

    Though in his mid twenties, this young man has already played shows across two hemispheres and in a war zone. While not dodging bullets and working on military aircraft, active duty airmen Andrew Jameson fuses the heart of southern rock with the style and attitude of alternative into a style that must be heard to be believed. With only a guitar in hand he has played venues of upwards to 400 people and he is just getting started.
    With his guitar on his back and his best friends by his side, he started as most teenagers do in the music world, in a garage with practice amps and a small space heater to keep from freezing to death. Born in Georgia and raised in Delaware he was prepared for a life on the road, before he knew what the future had in store. After playing a few house parties and graduating, he joined the U.S. Air Force, something he was destined for, until music called his name once again. Six brutal weeks of basic training, and a few months in tech-school he was on a plane to the volatile island of Korea.
    His first major show occurred in S. Korea where, along with his tight-knit military following, played to approximately 200 people and almost made the N. Koreans surrender with a few stanzas of melancholy and hope. Well, not quite. After the conclusion of his tour in S. Korea he made his way back to the U.S. in New Mexico where he became an immediate success. Starting out at an open mic at a bar called the Lounge, he once again built a small but dedicated fan base. He played here regularly and after a few short months played to a 400 person crowd.
    However, because of his career in the US Air Force, he has relocated once again to Mountain Home, Idaho. Thus far, a few open mic session have already turned into an invitation to return, this time, for his own show.

    Bare Bones

    The Bare Bones formed in July 2011. It started as a solo project for the work/writings of Chris Brock (Vocalist/Guitarist). He posted a video on facebook of him performing at the songwriters showcase at St. Chapels winery when Aaron Bossart (Percussion), who recognized him from high school, approached him and asked to jam together.

    The two took off when they started collaborating and practicing in Aaron’s basement. Using makeshift recording equipment and cheap gear bought with a good chunk of their life savings they mastered the songs Chris had written in a matter of weeks as a newly formed two piece band. The Bare Bones had their first official gig at the Flying M Coffee Garage on Friday, August 19, 2011, and have been working hard as young, gigging musicians ever since.
    Currently, The Bare Bones are composed of Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist: Chris Brock and Percussionist: Aaron Bossart. The Bare Bones bring together a fusion of genres like indie/blues/soul and alt. rock, and are influenced by a variety of groups like The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys, The Frames, Modest Mouse, Wilco, The Pixies, and countless, classic R&B soul artists like Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin. Aaron, having a near virtuoso talent as a drummer from his ”metal” days, brings a variety of beats to the table, providing a strong foundation for Chris, with his talents as a songwriter and a wannabe bluesman to really test the limits of what a two piece can do musically.

    Together The Bare Bones have brought a positive message to the Boise music scene, bringing waves of good vibes whenever they play live. They strive to always play a good show, make friends with whomever they meet and to always take responsibility for representing young musicians in a positive light.
