Radio Five Watt Presents: Alina Maira and Taylor James

Friday night live music featuring the incredible:

Alina Maira is a singer/songwriter from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, recently planting herself in Minneapolis Minnesota. Her songs are meant to provoke human connection through the avenue of shared experiences; reminding every listener that they are never alone in what they feel. Music has helped her in a myriad of ways since early childhood, and it remains one of the most core parts of her. She is currently recording an EP that is expected to release by the end of summer 2019; meanwhile two of her singles are already available on all media platforms.

taylor james donskey is finding his way through the alternative country tradition, sharing stories of the everyday and the few. Bare bones arrangements and simple melodies invite listeners in to explore some of those themes that shape relationships in times like these. These songs are the lasting impressions of individuals living simple but impactful lives. Never a polished feel, but always just right, Taylor builds on the solid foundations that were given new life by Gillian Welch; perpetuated by Jeff Tweedy and set on its head by Blake Mills. The self titled EP is due out fall of 2019.
