Poor Folks, Live Well

    Formed in the town of Wenatchee, Washingotn, in 2008, the 3-piece rock band Poor Folks, Live Well has quickly begun to make waves in the PAcific Northwest.  Poor Folks, Live Well is Brian Bailey (guitar, vocals), Shawn Sanders (bass), and Carsin Boyle (drums).  All three members grew up in Cashmere, Washngton playing in bands of different diverse styles, from bluegrass to jazz to punk.  Poor Folks, Live Well came together drawing from that diversity to create a unique style of raw pop/rock.

Poor Folks, Live Well values  a variety of genres, with melodies and lyrics that stick. Each song is written with the unique potential of the individual song in mind, rather than squeezing and forcing the song to “fit” a particular style or set of songs. Through that attitude, there are soaring melodies that create tension and stay interesting yet familiar. These dynamics are well displayed throughout the debut LP entitled “Our Sore Nerves” released August 2010.

Since forming, Poor Fols, Live Well  has performed at The Vogue (Chelan), Caffe Mela (Wenatchee), Der Hinterhof (Leavenworth), Tildio Winery (Manson), The Chelan County Fair (Cashmere), and the CWU SURC Ballroom (Ellensburg), among many other festivals and venues.  And they’ve shared the stage with some great bands, including The Lonely Forest, Ghost Power, Red Means Go, Small Town Nation, Dylan Morrison, and A Hope Not Forgotten.
