EAST FOREST

Doors at 7pm

EAST FOREST has been the leader of underground ‘sound healing’ ceremonies around the world since 2008. Using music as a tool, he has trailblazed the field of organic tech, building bridges between the digital and natural world. Being fully independent and playing in the private shadows allowed the sound of East Forest to emerge: an emotional and spacious musical lexicon with a sound that took shape out of a practical need to play solo for five to six hours while guiding a room full of listeners in deep meditation. Live looping and layered keyboard melodies filled the musical space while angelic vocals and original field recordings floated above.“East Forest is tied to both nature and to everyday urban life, giving it the qualities of a sort of ethereal and mystical modern-day fairytale. It’s just blissful.”(NPR)

VAN HUNT

Brought to you by Monqui Presents

Doors at 7pm | All Ages | Bar w/ID

Van Hunt, a Dayton, Ohio-born musician, made his way to Atlanta where he drew acclaim for his production efforts and crafty songwriting, featured on recordings by such diverse artists as Dionne Farris, Rahsaan Patterson, and Cree Summer as well as the platinum-selling soundtrack, Love Jones. His own self-titled debut album arrived in 2004, instantly establishing Hunt as a distinctive and original talent with its idiosyncratic melding of R&B, soul, funk, pop, and rock ‘n’ roll. Hunt received a 2005 “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” Grammy nomination for his breakthrough hit single, Dust that was featured on his debut album.

On The Jungle Floor followed two years later, highlighted by the single, Character, as well as by a surprising cover of Iggy Pop & James Williamson’s Kill City classic, No Sense Of Crime.

In 2007, Hunt received a Grammy Award for “Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals,” honoring Family Affair, a collaboration with John Legend and Joss Stone found on the 2006 Sly & The Family Stone tribute album, Different Strokes For Different Folks.

Hunt’s third album, Popular, was slated for 2008 but was pulled from the label’s release schedule in late 2007 at the dawn of a tumultuous decade for the music industry. Nevertheless, the album become an underground sensation, a classic lost album hailed by LA Weekly as “a left-field stunner” for its “trippy fusion of funk grooves, punk guitar and soul vocals.” Popular was officially released in August, 2017.

In 2011, Hunt released What Were You Hoping For?. Reaching both Billboard’s Top 50 R&B/Hiphop and Heat Seekers charts, the album also received rave reviews. Metacritic branded the record’s critical success as “universal acclaim”, for an album averaging a score of 90 among music critics. What Were You Hoping For? was listed among “The Best Albums of 2011” by The New York Daily News, The Chicago Tribune, The LA Times, The AV CLub and a league of other music publications.

A charismatic and engaging live performer, Hunt has also attracted critical praise touring both as headliner as well as alongside such diverse acts as Kanye West, The Roots, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, and Dave Matthews Band.

Van Hunt’s fifth album, The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets., was released on May 5, 2015. Inspired by the music of The Delfonics, Parliament-Funkadelic, Pink Floyd, and Billie Holiday, the album chronicles love, loss, and nostalgia through the sounds of original funk and old soul. The Boston Globe says Hunt “…achieves the kind of heated, raw sound that has virtually disappeared in too much of today’s overly manicured R&B.” and, “…Hunt, never loses sight of the past as he progressively forges his own way forward.”

KY BURT: ALBUM RELEASE SHOW W/NEVER COME DOWN BAND, PRETTY GRITTY

Doors at 7pm

Ky Burt’s debut full-length studio album, The Sky In Between (Release date: April 5th, 2019) features ten richly crafted songs rooted in the sounds and settings of the American landscape. It’s the culmination of several years of intensive writing, performing, and re-working of songs, that span a Midwest upbringing, career as an environmental educator in Arizona, and ultimately landing Burt in his new home in the Pacific Northwest. Reflecting on connection, love and loss, the bustle of city life, the desire for and decline of small towns and quiet grounding places, it’s a chronicle of how nature is a guide for our lives, and how impermanence and the passing of days is both beautiful and difficult. It’s also an homage to ancestors, and the inherited yearning to re-root, reach for one’s dreams and build new life again. As Burt relates, “Life is not a straight path, it’s your own version of some crooked winding road that might just take you home again.”

PETER BRADLEY ADAMS

Presented by TOC

Doors at 7pm | All Ages | Bar w/ID | All sales are final.

No matter the form, when it comes to art, there are a number of different tacks to take. Some artists continually push their work across new horizons. Others stand a bit more still in order to continually refine the capturing of their vision. Singer/songwriter Peter Bradley Adams falls into the latter category of perfectionists chasing their own perfection. With A Face Like Mine, he may well have caught it.

There’s a confidence, a completeness in the song cycle that listeners have gleaned throughout Adams’ illustrious career, but A Face Like Mine, his sixth solo effort, brings it all into sharp focus. Adams’ brand of Americana nestles his often delicate, always heartfelt voice in the warm embrace of gentle guitar, tasteful dobro, subtle banjo, supportive bass, and unhurried percussion. The result is a sonic scape that, in turn, wraps itself around the listener like a soft blanket on a cold day. With A Face Like Mine, Adams further refines the simple musical sophistication that has become his trademark.

Throughout the self-produced set, Adams tells tales of love and loss, homes and hearts. The territory he mines is a deliberate mix of fact and fantasy. “I feel like I’m, firstly, a storyteller,” he offers, “but it’s inevitable that my own stuff gets in there deep. And it’s funny how, sometimes, I don’t realize it until the song is done.”

Regardless of the details, there’s always a philosophical bent that is often more under than on the surface, firmly grounding Adams’ songs even as they stretch outward. By his own admission, Adams is a seeker who spends considerable time wrestling with matters of faith, though he’s the first to admit he doesn’t have any real answers. “I honestly don’t know what the hell I’m doing… nor do I have the language for any of this stuff,” he says with a laugh.

That seeker’s heart is the tie that so often binds these songs together. Whether the search for place and purpose is of a spiritual or geographical nature, few writers capture the journey as thoughtfully as Adams. An Alabama native, Adams says he feels most comfortable in motion and doesn’t have a strong sense of being Southern, even though his music is rooted in that world in so many ways. And though he sets various scenes with his lyrical imagery, Adams always leaves room for the listener to crawl inside his stories and make them their own.

A Face Like Mine’s songs were composed all over the world, from Alabama to India, and they dig into topics are disparate as the desperation of addiction (“Lorraine”), the grappling of self-image (“Who Else Could I Be”), the vitriol of politics (“We Are”), and the genetics of suffering (“A Face Like Mine”). “We Are” and “Who Else Could I Be” were originally written for a dance piece that Gina Patterson choreographed for the San Angelo Civic Ballet. Even so, Adams made sure the songs could stand alone in their own world no matter what else was swirling around them — confidence and completeness in action.

As a work of musical art, A Face Like Mine fulfills the promise of Peter Bradley Adams. And rarely has an artist’s standing still sounded so divine.

Mari Boine is an award winning Norwegian Sami musician known for having added jazz and rock to the traditional singing of her native people. Boine sings in a traditional folk style, using the ‘yoik’ voice, together with a wide range of accompanying instruments and percussion. Almost 30 years have passed since Mari Boine swept music lovers around the globe off their feet with her astonishing solo album “Gula Gula” which was released internationally on Peter Gabriel’s famous RealWorld label. For “Gula Gula” Mari received the first of her three Norwegian Grammy Award. A decade and many releases later, Mari was recognized with the Nordic Council’s Music Prize. This special award acknowledged her artistic achievements, but also her ability to connect with a global audience while still maintaining her integrity as a Sámi. She is also appointed first class in the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav, an honorary doctorate at the University of Tromsø, and then finally – she was the recipient of the Norwegian Grammys honorary award in 2018.

With her unique voice infused by the long time oppressed shaman culture of the Norwegian Sami, an indigenous people often compared to Native Americans, she’s created a sound universe of her own with an almost trance-like folk music. She has inspired indigenous artists the world over is today revered as a truly unique artist whose trajectory led her to release more than a dozen highly-acclaimed solo albums and collaborate with stellar Norwegian jazz musicians like Jan Garbarek and Bugge Wesseltoft. For 2018 she was awarded the Norwegian Grammy honorary award.

OH LAND WITH SPECIAL GUEST ARTHUR MOON

Presented by Monqui | Doors at 7pm | All Ages | Bar w/ID | All sales are final.

Danish singer and composer Nanna Øland Fabricius, aka Oh Land, wrote and produced her first album, Fauna, in 2008 following a back injury that destroyed her ballet career. Since then Oh Land has released four studio albums and toured the world many times, both headlining and opening for such acts as Katy Perry and Sia. As a songwriter she has worked with Pharrell, Sia, John Legend and Tricky, to name a few.

Oh Land’s newest album, Family Tree, produced by Thomas Bartlett and slated for a May 2019 release, is her first studio album in 5 years, and is a much more intimate album than anything she’s done before.

“Since the release of my latest album, I’ve experienced the biggest ups and downs of my private life,” notes Nanna, who had a baby, moved back to Denmark after living in NYC for ten years, and got a divorce all in the span of 18 months. “Music has, for me, always been the friend who listens and never judges. And music listens best when you pour your heart out.”

Oh Land also composes music for film, theater and the classical music world. She has performed with Lang Lang and Joshua Bell at Carnegie Hall in New York City, and orchestrated concerts for the Danish Symphony orchestra in her native country of Denmark. She collaborated with the Queen of Denmark to create a ballet for the Danish Theatre (2016); created the music for Watermusic, a multimedia performance for over 15,000 people at Randers Harbor combining architecture, dance and music (2017), as well as creating the musical score for the exhibition “The Ship” at Nikolaj Kunsthal in collaboration with Eske Kath. Most recently she reimagined the Danish National Anthem as a dark, dystopian theme song for the new Netflix sci-fi hit “The Rain”.

Arthur Moon is the moniker of composer/singer Lora Faye Ashuvud, whose unconventional, polymathic approach to composition evokes the idiosyncratic ethos of bands like Radiohead and tUnE yArDs. Ashuvud writes her lyrics using cut up newspaper and magazine articles, and describes the process of composing the music as similarly collage like. “On the best days,” she said in a recent interview with LPR, “it feels kind of like playing a rousing game of Exquisite Corpse except only with myself.”

“Her voice carves melodies so sharp and fine you can almost see them…” – New York Times

“Smith’s best songs sound like little miracles.” – USA Today

A good rule of thumb when going to a Mindy Smith concert, bring a hanky, a tissue or an extra sleeve. Your tear ducts don’t know the difference between laughing tears and crying tears and you’ll likely be doing both. “Humor is how I compensate for singing so many sad tunes back to back,” says Smith.

Mindy Smith is a Long Island-born, Nashville based singer-songwriter with a clear and honest passion for Americana, jazz, pop, rock, blues, and folk and is a self-proclaimed music genre mutt.
