The Doe Bay Sessions: Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives

By asking bands to come and play some songs in the forest, we were asking them to strip their songs down to their most fundamental elements, to distill them into their most concentrated existence. For some bands that means a single person. For others, the emotion portrayed is more complicated than a single person can fully express.
Drew Grow and the Pastor’s Wives had to compromise nothing, in that it’s the human power of their songs that are the real strength. Amidst the boughs of 150 foot tall trees, in the middle of the trail, Drew, Seth, Jeremiah, and Kris proved they’re not simply a great rock band on stage, they’re intensely present and able musicians in any setting. The mossy surroundings would amplify the voices across the resort and deliver this Doe Bay Session to everyone as it happened, foreshadowing the incredible showing the band would deliver the following day and the larger impact their presence at the festival would amount to. It was glorious.
Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives play Columbia City Theater September 11th with Pablo Trucker and Yuni in Taxco. You can purchase tickets here and we recommend you do so early.
