Why We Went West – Songwriters Read Barbee, Sierra Cistone, Lucas Yatch, and Maria Zepeda at Missoula’s Longstaff House
Independent songwriters Read Barbee, Sierra Cistone, Lucas Yatch and Maria Zepeda have joined forces and together create a unique sound journeying through folk, soul, psychedelic genres with a hint of indie-rock, resulting in their own creation of “Psychedelic River Folk”.
Their music features lush three-to-four-part harmonies, thoughtful instrumentals, and lyrics that invite listeners to contemplate and celebrate. Their sound creates a feeling of home and belonging that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Our Mission:The Missoula Underground is a hyper-local blog about the best the Missoula area has to offer: food/beverages, music, events, activities, local people and business.
Hyper-local means we don’t write about anything that isn't owned or locally managed or operated in the Missoula area. No corporate chains or businesses operated by investment groups from out of Montana.
We have a growing all-volunteer team of bloggers and contributors. We’re here because we care about our beloved Missoula area and want to showcase the best of what's here and what we love to do.
When you share our articles, you become part of a force for good in and around Missoula.
