Show Photos: Cheyenne Marie Mize, Archeology at the Mill, 7/29

I counted five instruments impressively played by Cheyenne on stage at the Mill this past Thursday – guitar, banjo, violin, drums and keyboard. She created a confectionery of soothing guitar and thoughtful lyrics that made me want to curl up in a booth and just listen instead of jumping around taking photos. Look for her new album, Before Lately, and also give a listen to the trio she’s one-third of, Maiden Voyage. She was followed up by the energetic indie folk rock of Portland-based Archeology. Their well-meshed vocals and sometimes-loud guitars were quite enjoyable. These performers are two of the many reasons, as I have preached in the past, to go to the Mill on a weeknight. Definitely great lazy-summer evening music.
