Typhoon - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

The latest album from this Portland-based band is called White Lighter and it is a wonderful masterpiece of highly-orchestrated pop music. Frontman Kyle Morton leads this 12-piece band which includes Toby Tanabe, Dave Hall, Pieter Hilton, Alex Fitch, Tyler Ferrin, Ryan McAlpin, Eric Stipe, Devin Gallagher, Shannon Steele and Jen Hufnagel.

The new album from Typhoon deals with some very autobiographical subject matter; when Morton was a child, he contracted Lyme disease and has struggled with health issues ever since. He has stated that when he started working on White Lighter, he had reason to believe that it would be the last thing he ever did. Thankfully, he did seem well when he and his band recently stopped by Studio A to perform and to talk about the new material.
