The Second Hands at Jamesport Vineyards
March 1, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$20
The Second Hands is a folk duo comprised of songwriters Geoff Schroeder and Laura Hoch. The two met playing music in the beginning of 2009 and began writing together soon after.
The Second Hands’ songwriting is both personal and poetic, reflecting intimate experiences that can be universally interpreted by the listener. Their warm vocal blends and folk melodies sit well over simplistic, thought-out guitar arrangements. Mandolin and electric guitar serve as subtle accompaniment through much of the album.
Mrs. Hoch’s vocal presence is strong, pure and authentic. Her voice is really the “starlet” of the album, while Mr. Schroeder displays a rich style of finger picking and a loose, Dylan-esque style of singing. While many of the songs are about love and relationships, they do not borrow any of the clichés from love songs. Their lyrical attack is both original and colorful, painting personal experiences that reflect basic human emotion.
