Something Else was born in the year 2000 in the Mountains above Santa Cruz, CA and you can see this fact reflected in the music they play. From the simple melodies and soaring wide-open spaces of the mountain high to the pounding, driving surge of the river bottom, the music transcends time to pull from all aspects of the Americana music scene. And while the music reflects the landscape, the lyrics feel rooted to your soul as tightly as an oak tree to a cliff-side drop:

“Just believe in something, just believe in you.
Just believe in something, just believe in you and me.
We may not always be right, but who’s to say that’s wrong.
Mistakes we might have made are in the past that means they’re gone…”

~ from The Light off “Lesson for Today”

The combination of these two elements give you a ride for your body as well as your mind. A Something Else show feels as comfortable and familiar as an old friend, but at the same time gives the sensation of exploring new ground. Of climbing to the mountain’s top for the simple reason of seeing if you can fly.

From Delta sensibilities to San Francisco Mandala-coated psychedelic chaos, Something Else truly delivers on their name. Lowell George once described Little Feat as “Country music with a boogie beat” and the same applies equally well to Something Else.
