Boise to Shout, 'Hey Marseilles' 

Saturday, April 13 at Visual Arts Collective

Hey Marseilles guitarist Matt Bishop Nick Ward told Seattle Weekly that the band chose its name to evoke a European chamber pop sound. The group's accordion and organ components suggest an Old World influence, but classical piano, viola and cello--paired with singer Nick Ward's Matt Bishop's soft vocals and tender lyrics--set the band apart.

In 2008, Hey Marseilles dropped its much lauded debut album, To Travels and Trunks; the record's single, "Rio," led to a spot on the National Public Radio series Tiny Desk Concerts.

The band's sophomore album, Lines We Trace, was released in March. Ward's Bishop's voice commands an even larger presence on the new album, while the band more fully embraces its orchestral roots.
