Sera Cahoone: Sounds Like Homeopbmusic

Sera Cahoone may have started her career as a drummer, but the Seattle musician has made a name for herself as a singer-songwriter. Her third album in the past five years, Deer Creek Canyon, often finds the Colorado native looking homeward (as the title track indicates) on a personal collection that also happens to be sweetly, soothingly tuneful. We recently joined Cahoone and her band during sound check before a performance at the Doug Fir in Portland.
