Wes Miles on Songwriting and Discovery

Ra Ra Riot — a Syracuse-based band from Syracuse, NY and signed to Seattle-based label Barsuk — released their sophomore album, “The Orchard,” last August. Following in the footsteps of their acclaimed debut, “The Rhumb Line,” the album features string arrangements, terrific songwriting and soaring vocals provided by frontman Wes Miles. While the album was just released in Europe, Ra Ra Riot was recently announced as a headliner at this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party in July. In this interview, Miles discusses songwriting for “The Orchard” and his side-project, Discovery.
