About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: December 12, 2011
  • Artist / Band: Spectator
  • Hosting Show: Musical Merry-Go-Round
  • Sound: Aaron Ruby

The shimmering and lilting folk rock of Spectator is perfect for a stroll in the moonlight or just slipping into a day dream.

At the core of Spectator are Megan Rooney and Jeff Albert, two St. Louis musicians who have been writing songs together for five years, but who only recently founded the band, which features Laren Loveless on drums on percussion and Luke Berry on bass. Combining flute-like keyboards, guitar and even electronic autoharp, the band has developed a sound that's both lonesome and comforting, and should appeal to fans of the eerie, jazzy style of Mazzy Star and Cotton Jones. The band is currently working on its first album in Columbia, Mo. at Centro Cellar Studios.
