Rawlins, band to play musical 'mash-up'


WALLA WALLA — La Grande-based musician Gregory Rawlins & The Correspondence School will play 9 p.m.-midnight Saturday at Sapolil Cellars, 15 E. Main St.

Rawlins’ influences draw from a mash-up of classic rock, early country music, and the Seattle grunge wave of the early 1990s — genres illustrated in his solo work, as well as in Sons of Guns, a band he co-fronts with longtime friend Mike Surber.

In 2008, Rawlins self-released “The Amazing Circle of Boxes,” his 19-track debut album recorded between 2002-2007 in the interim of band activity, in a series of bedrooms, basements, garages and warehouses. At times simple and meditative, at times erratic, spacey, distorted and fused with myriad electronics and natural sounds, Rawlins established himself as unique among American musicians.
