On a rainy Sunday afternoon I went to meet the amazing Sara Lucas and Ryan Seaton of Callers. The location was Trophy Bar, in Williamsburg, which at that early hour wasn’t open for business yet. Sara was catching up on a late lunch and Ryan was getting a head start on getting the bar reading for the evening. Though they usually play as a trio, drummer Don wasn’t around. Ryan played the guitar and Sara sang, and we immediately realized how fabulous the acoustics was at this place: it seemed as if Sara’s voice leaped up to the ceiling, from which little hands protruded to hold the notes and sway them until she closed her mouth. So they tried out many many songs, out of which you’ll hear in this video, “Meet Between”, a Willie Nelson cover of “The Ghost”, and “Valerie”. I’m sure I’ll be posting some of the outtakes at the end of the year.
