Taller Than They Appear and The Lucky Nows
Performing all originals all of the time, Jere Stormer, Bobby Pennock, Sigrid Christiansen and Lauren Crane are Taller Than They Appear, a band of songwriters. Each has a style that is miles from the next, but come together with soulful harmonies, arresting arrangements and a smattering of instruments. Birdcalls, bells and bongos, woodblocks, washboards and whistles round out the guitars, violins and ukuleles. Overheard several if not nearly a dozen times, "You all have something here." Well, that's something, anyway.

One cold and unpleasant Michigan winter day, award-winning singer-songwriter Jen Cass boldly asked Saginaw's "Best Blues Guitarist" Eric Janetsky out to lunch at her favorite Thai Restaurant. She was secretly hoping he'd fall madly in love with her, but was willing to settle for some authentic Pad Thai if that didn't work out.

One month later, they were playing their first gigs as The Lucky Nows.  

Fourteen months later, they were happily married.  

A Brady Bunch of five kids, and hundreds of gigs later, they still are.

Yes. It's that kind of story...

Fate and Faith have a way of putting you exactly where you need to be. And The Lucky Nows are no exception.

Years earlier, Jen had been fortunate enough to cross paths with multi-instrumentalist Jon Potrykus, and he was delighted to bring his Fiddle, Dobro and Cello expertise to the band.

Eric grew up with mandolin legend Daniel Patrick, and both were connected to guitar guru Michael Robertson.

Mike brought in harp and harmony master Rosco Selley, and the final piece of The Lucky Nows puzzle clicked in perfectly.

The Lucky Nows play dynamic, high-energy Americana folk-rock with echoes of Isbell and Isakov and a bluesy center. Their music draws from every genre, delivering a wide range of lyric-driven originals with intricate arrangements and gorgeous harmonies. If Steve Earle had a love-child with Lucinda Williams, and that child was raised by Kris Delmhorst and Jeffrey Foucault, and frequently visited by Shovels & Rope and the ghost of Townes Van Zandt, their debut CD would sound eerily similar to The Lucky Nows' "Rise".
