The Earls Court w/ Meg & The Right Sound and Nate Christian

The Earls Court

The Earls Court is an emerging rock band from  Lancaster Pennsylvania. They have a classic blues rock drive in their warm tone. The band formed in 2014 with lead guitarist and vocalist Richard Patterson, drummer Ethan Patterson, keyboardist  Ross Olweiler and bassist John Stein. Starting from age 11, Richard Patterson started teaching himself guitar with influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and Stevie Ray Vaughn. In years prior to The Earl’s Court, Richard began writing and composing different songs and melodies that have been a major part in shaping the art and style of the band. The band plans to change hearts and minds to a positive electric sound.

 

Meg & The Right Sound

Taking their inspiration from soul, indie folk, and the occasional burst of pop, MRS’s eclectic mix of genres is assertively carried by Megan McDermott’s powerful vocals. “I’m all about ‘the voice,’” says Helen Leicht from WXPN. “It gives the listener an immediate connection to their soul. Meg’s voice is stunning – soulful and warm. Fans of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Alabama Shakes will love Meg and the Right Sound. They are a band to watch.”

Meg and the Right Sound began as a duo in 2014, with Megan McDermott on vocals and Jason Sherman on guitar. With the addition of Chris Jakubowicz and Jeremy Bentley in early 2015, the band rounded out its already polished style with melodic bass and driving drum rhythms. “We were tired of the typical bar-band-music scene. Even when we started out playing covers, we played music we liked, not what was expected.” Today, the band plays original music, written and composed by Megan McDermott and Jason Sherman.

The friendship binding these musicians together is apparent in their on-stage energy and their music’s seamless blend of lyric, sound, and execution. “We like to have fun onstage – drinking, making music, making smiles happen,” says Chris Jakubowicz.

 

Nate Christian

After studying songwriting for a full year in Sydney, Australia at HILC (a college that follows the Berklee College of Music curriculum) he came home to Maryland and preceded to write and self-produce his first full-length album, Wonderland. It released on June 2nd, 2016 and has received great feedback from listeners who love the songwriting and musical structure of the songs within. A twelve track album, Wonderland goes through the ups and downs of life and shows off the song-writing that he takes pride in. Nate Christian says, “I share stories through songs and my main goal is to connect with a listener and find a place where we both understand.”
