Claimed & Written by Samantha B.
Finally, Seattle can give us more than rain! Since discovering Hey Marseilles, the seven member folk/pop band has been on heavy rotation on my iPod. Having seven band members proves to be a strength for these guys as it brings an eclectic range of instrumentation and styles to each track.
Strong vocals from lead singer Matt Bishop is a solid base for the band and is only accentuated by his six other band mates. The accordion in “To Travels & Trunks” makes me feel like I’m at a French cafe enjoying good eats and good tunes. Clapping also becomes a cool backup instrument on “Rio”.
Matt, Nick, Philip, Patrick, Sam, Jacob and Colin have recently started branching out from the Seattle music circuit and just finished a run at the SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. There is no doubt that Hey Marseilles will catch the attention of many and grow a solid following.
