Sera Cahoone Adds Boston Date to Tour

The Seattle-based folk song writer will be in Somerville on Sunday, June 18, at Once Ballroom Lounge.


Although initially gaining popularity through her time in indie band, Band of Horses, Seattle-based folk song writer Sera Cahoone’s latest album, From Where I Started, focuses on her country and Americana roots, and the lyrical content follows the theme of returning home nicely. Adding to her tour, Cahoone will be performing at Somerville’s Once Ballroom Lounge with special guest Patrick Coman on Sunday, June 18. Doors open at 6:30; show starts at 7 p.m. and ends at midnight. Tickets range from $12 to $15.

Cahoone just did a great live session on KEXP, and had a great review on Pop Matters, who stated, “Sera Cahoone makes it a welcoming and easy album to live and listen; it’s comforting to return to immediately and makes a solid addition to a steady catalog based on an extensive career finding ‘home.’”

The album also explores the darker side of the love. One of the most compelling tracks of the album is “Ladybug,” which is about the death of Cahoone's cousin Tawnee at the hands of a domestic partner. While many country songs explore domestic violence, most do so in a heterosexual context, “Ladybug” is original in that it sheds light on the often hidden issues of domestic violence in queer relationships. Ladybug was one of NPR's 'Songs We Love' after it debuted this February.
