Subscribe to The Bay Bridged Podcast!

Today, we’re kicking off a new type of podcast we’ll be running every month here on the site. For our “Artist Spotlight” series, we’re inviting some great emerging Bay Area bands into the studio to perform stripped down versions of their songs live in the studio accompanied by a brief chat. We’re pleased to launch this series with Doe Eye, the moniker of SF singer-songwriter Maryam Qudus. Over the past few years, Doe Eye has released two EPs to significant acclaim, and recently completed recording a debut full length with John Vanderslice. That album will be released next year.

When we caught up with Doe Eye, Qudus and her band had just returned from a lengthy tour, during which Nic picked up an accordion in Chicago. He brought it to the studio, and the two songs performed in this episode offer unique arrangements of “I Hate You” and “Oh My God.”
