Local folk-pop project Whisper Kiss began as a duo collaboration between songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Wegner—known for his work with Beatles tribute act Abbey Road Live—and singer Shelley Lotus. Now a trio with the addition of cellist Karen Bergmann, the group celebrates the release of the Extraordinary Days LP with an early show at The Foundry. The album’s 10 tracks are breezy and often playful, incorporating Beatlesesque melody as well as the odd funk rhythm (“Luxury Ride”) and smooth-jazz sax line (“Wait For Now”). Wednesday’s show will feature guests Andrew Hanmer, Mindy Towe and Rob McMaken.
