Many musicians fancy themselves cinematic storytellers, but few have the experience that Sea Wolf has behind the camera. Having attended film school at NYU, Alex Brown Church used his education to carefully craft songs and create verbal portraits that go hand-in-hand with his band’s luscious blend of indie folk and alternative rock. This show at the Coach House is part of a quick three-date run and acoustic-only solo show, showcasing Church playing tracks in the original form they were recorded. Despite not releasing a record since 2012’s Old World Romance, the Los Angeles-dwelling musician is still one of the brightest songwriters working—and this could be the opportunity for the talented songwriter to try out new material in a live setting.
