Today our guest is Seattle songwriter Sera Cahoone. Originally from Colorado, Cahoone’s interest in music began as a drummer performing around town with various Blues bands. When she turned 21, an opportunity presented itself to relocate to Seattle where she would continue to pursue music as a drummer alongside the famous indie rock group, Band of Horses. In 2006 Cahoone began releasing her own songs that caught the attention of Seattle’s indie-rock station KEXP as well as NPR Music, and it wasn’t long before she was signed to Sub Pop Records. With the release of Cahoone’s latest album, she decided to spend more time on the road as a solo performer instead of performing with a full band. We talk with her about how that experience has changed her as a musician.
