“Hometown (Live)” by Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers

With spectacular energy pulsating from every member of the band, Lansing, Michigan-based Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers could illuminate the very chambers of Heaven. Lead singer and Amish excommunicate Joe Hertler splashes through lyrical puddles of golden rain. A ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and—at last—into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found.

The Rainbow Seekers began their quest beneath Hertler’s fingertips. Kevin Pritchard (bassist and producer), Rick Hale (drummer) and Ryan Hoger (blues guitar) wrangled Hertler into musical collaboration. The core of the Rainbow was thereby established, but it did not take long for The Seekers to continue their expansion. Multi-instrumentalist and notable auxiliary percussion maestro Micah Bracken journeyed from the bowels of Atlantis when he heard tell of the Rainbow, and the earth trembled as saxophonist Aaron Stinson descended from Olympus on a golden rainbow of his own. Finally came the debonair violist Joshua Barber Holcomb.

Hertler and The Seekers put forth a masterful mix of indie, folk, mo-town funk, R&B, and pop with their new album Terra Incognita. The album is available now via Bad Mascot.
