My favorite new artists from SXSW 2013

#5: Pickwick

Pickwick is a relatively young band from Seattle that formed in 2008.  They have a distinct Pacific Northwest Indie sound to them tossed with a bit of soul,  as if you mixed Bob Schneider with Fitz and the Tantrums.  The band went through a revolution recently, threw out all their old music, changed their writing process to be more collaborative and basically started anew.  They are currently working on recording their first album and their national spring tour schedule is overwhelmingly jam packed, though heavy on dates on the east coast.
