FEATURED ARTIST: BOAT
Before moving to Seattle around the turn of the century, BOAT's David Crane was a schoolteacher in Chicago. Apparently, not too excited with teaching as a career, he leaped into the music industry and I'm glad he did. His songs sound like many other happy, sunshiny artist but have that certain uniqueness that makes BOAT stand out from the crowd. The music is lively, contagious pop rock full of super hooks and fun. There's no significance to the all caps other than to give the word more distinction. Although it would have been great if it was an acronym for some phrase like 'Belief Only Alters Temptation' or 'Broccoli Onions And Thyme'. BOAT released four full length albums since 2006.
