Sequoyah Prep School

When: Sat., March 17 2012

SEQUOYAH PREP SCHOOL In Orson Welles’ The Magnificent Ambersons, Uncle Jack Amberson recalls his youth: “Life and money both behave like loose quicksilver in a nest of cracks. When they’re gone, you can’t tell where, or what the devil you did with them.” Florence, S.C.’s Sequoyah Prep School might well reply, “We feel you!” In a voice equal parts adenoidal and angelic, Daulfin Osbourne sings about the little stuff — your hometown changing, losing touch with friends — over catchy, even jaunty, music colored by ’90’s indie-movie soundtracks. Think Counting Crows and Matchbox 20’s Americana-tinged sugar pop, with a touch of Tinderbox’s darker hues. Sure, it’s all a little callow, but this stuff matters to Sequoyah Prep School. They seem quite earnest as they try to catch life’s little moments before they slip through the cracks. (Pat Moran)
