I’m with Her is a “Kimchi-Eating Band”

By LISA HELFER // Review of I'm with Her's show in Portland's Revolution Hall. 

 

During I’m with Her’s recent Portland show at Revolution Hall on April 7, 2018, Aoife O’Donovan talked about the group’s liberal politics and healthy leanings, “ya know, we are a kimchi-eating band,” she told the audience. The tsunami-like momentum of talent is in full force and unrelenting with Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan, and Sara Watkins who in the midst of three very successful solo careers, joined together to form I’m with Her.

This latest formation is the icing on the cake to say the least. Buttery harmonies and virtuoso, multi-instrumental ease are their specialties. Consummate performers who fluidly blend old-time shtick with grace and modern humor; their live show was absolutely a unique event. I cried, I laughed, and was awed.

I’m with Her’s first EP in 2015 included, "Crossing Muddy Waters"/"Be My Husband" (Sugar Hill Records). In March of 2018 the full-length, “See You Around” was issued by New Rounder Records. They are currently touring the album internationally and will continue to do so for at least the next year, said Sarah Jarosz in a recent interview. Also released in April, the trio recorded “Chinky Pin Hill” for a compilation of Johnny Cash’s poetry set to music called, “Forever Words.”

Their Revolution Hall set included Wild One, Game to Lose, I-89, Send My Love, See You Around, Chinky Pin Hill, and after two standing ovations and a very enthusiastic house, they treated the audience to Hannah Hunt by Vampire Weekend.
