商品説明

Offshoots lead singer Beth and guitarist Paul Schramer met in a band, fell in love playing together, and have been playing with Paul's brother Mark on bass for decades. Mostly known for their high energy shows in The Ducks, Northwest legendary party band. Three years ago, they decided that they had enough really well-wrought original tunes to form a new band, The Offshoots, and they found the perfect seasoned but young and vibrant drummer in Phil Carter, who had a boatload of experience touring and recording, and met their criterion: eager to rehearse and perform live, creative and inventive, soulful and funny and a solid family man! Yep, all four members have been happily married for decades, a rarity in the rock music world. That solid support from loved ones and fans has given them the kind of deep roots of security and passion that help drive their soulful rock. They are unendingly grateful and forever offshoots of everyone they've had the privilege to connect with through family, life, work and music. Between Beth's forceful vocal style and Paul's ear for harmonies, their new original tunes had some of the classic flavors of new-wave rock. Inventive lead guitar, bass that is right in the pocket and super solid, arrangements that showcased each player, songs with a variety of topics from being crazy in love to just trying to breathe into the difficult moments of life and solid musicianship all found their way into Champion St. Sound Studios in their hometown of Bellingham, WA. With the help of brilliant producer Paul Turpin, their first CD Room to Grow became a hit on internet radio and brought them fans from all over the globe. Adjectives like soulful, tasteful, strong and funky just begin to give you an inkling of the kind of grooves that they lay down together. One reviewer who writes for the Seattle Weekly wrote, 'The Offshoots sound like they've mastered a blend of soul-infused rock. The Offshoots sound like a festival band in the best possible way. They bring a signature energy within their music that suggests each musician is having an absolute blast. I also get the sense that every band member is incredibly talented but humble enough to share the spotlight accordingly. Beth Schramer's voice is lively and powerful, ranging from classic rock to blues-influenced to sixties pop, sometimes all in the same song. The Offshoots make the claim that their music is 'an offshoot' of their own personal tastes and they take it seriously. Actually, listening through their record is almost like listening to a radio station that focuses primarily on classic acts. In fact, I had to check to make sure these weren't just a bunch of covers because they possess a sense of familiarity. The Offshoots have a solidified sound that they present in high quality recording and skilled musicianship.' - C. Deuel The Offshoots bandmates are mature, confident, devoted to making music in their community, and enthusiastic about getting heard across the planet thanks to digital distribution. It's never been about making money or becoming famous. They joke in one of their songs 'I'm just a legend in my own mind!' Staying lighthearted, yet focused on music as a connector, a bridge, a community builder, a natural aggregator around which love gathers, The Offshoots are having the time of their lives! After hearing their music on an electronic press kit online, Viacom selected The Offshoots to be a contributing artist on their Indie Anthems Volume 4 for release at the 2014 South by Southwest Festival Now they are delighted with their second CD String Theory, again recorded locally in Bellingham, the same town that brought Seattle the Posies and Death Cab for Cutie, and a town with a thriving music scene that rivals the best of bigger cities. The title tune comes from a dream Beth had where she awoke to a new 'brane' or string in the multi-verse, a universe where 'everyone was swimming in their bliss/ all the world one great big pond.' Stealing a bit of Yeats, 'Like a laughing string where on mad fingers played amid a place of stone', she jotted down
