V. Contreras offers sultry mix of pop, rock and soul | Concert preview

V. Contreras was only 12 when she heard a song that changed her life.

On a nine-hour car trip to Idaho, Contreras and her family passed the time listening to her parents’ favorite albums on the car stereo.

“They played Linda Ronstadt, the Supremes and Heart, but when they played Patsy Cline’s ‘Sweet Dreams,’ it made a really big impression on me,” Contreras recalled.

Cahalen Morrison and Eli West don’t always play with each other, but when they do it’s usually a thrill. That was certainly the case during a breezy, fun Thursday evening at the Triple Door.

But Morrison and West just played a Seattle show in February when they released their third album together, “I’ll Swing My Hammer With Both My Hands,” and perhaps didn’t feel like running through what would probably be a similar set list.

Touring never gets easier. Packing your life into a suitcase, trucking all that gear halfway across the country and back again, eating in strange cities and sleeping strange beds — it can all add up to a lot of hard work. It’s the kind of life you’d want to live for a week, not three months at a time.

But making music isn’t the same as playing it, and for Cahalen Morrison and Eli West the act of making music together has gotten decidedly easier as the years have gone on.

Pepper Proud tackles “essential companion” water on next album | News

Pepper Proud.

Pepper Proud tours the way a folk artist should. She’s just as likely to show up in someone’s living room as she is a club stage, and whenever she can, she camps out. All that time outdoors gave Proud a deep appreciation for the one resource we absolutely cannot do without: water. It’s the reason she’s…

Manhattan Transfer to sizzle 3 nights at Triple Door | Concert Preview

The sizzling, sassy jazz vocal quartet Manhattan Transfer, featuring Mount Vernon native Cheryl Bentyne, started as a folk group inspired by vintage swing, exemplified by the wonderful, tongue-in-cheek early hits “Operator” and “Java Jive.” Glitz, bebop and doo-wop soon followed, and MT moved beyond the hippie crowd to international stardom.
