Friday night live at Transistor: acoustic indie folk from Silvergirl and Brendan Losch. Sound by Jon Monteverde.

Silvergirl is the musical imagination of Chicago based singer-songwriter Steve O’Connell. Drawing inspiration from '70s folk legends, '80s pop maestros and '90s alt-rock heroes, Silvergirl is an early aughts dream of sound and influence. Silvergirl often performs live with a varying lineup of Chicago based musicians, but for this Transistor Steve performed solo. This intimate acoustic set included songs from Silvergirl’s first release, "Our Earthquake Dreams."

Visit Silvergirl on Bandcamp.

Brendan Losch is a singer-songwriter from Chicago. Inspired by life experiences and the surrounding environment, Brendan composes a heartfelt sound imbued with intimate chords, melodic vocals and simple yet contemplative lyrics. His infectious harmonies will remind you of the loved blanket you slip around your shoulders on a chilly fall night. Playing at well-known venues in Chicago such as Schubas, Beat Kitchen, Bottom Lounge and Subterranean has enabled Brendan to establish himself as a respected musician. He has shared the stage with popular acts such as Phosphorescent, Bowerbirds, The Dodos, Greg Laswell, Nicole Atkins, Jenny Owen Youngs, Brooke Waggoner, Joshua James, Cotton Jones, and Surfer Blood. Brendan is currently at work on a new album, which he plans to release in 2014. For this set, Brendan was joined by John Morton.
