British singer-songwriter Bobby Long emerged from London’s club scene with a reputation for creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. He relocated to New York in 2009 and has since released three CDs inhabited by powerful original material: A Winter Tale (2011)—an homage to his acoustic roots; Wishbone (2013)—a gritty opus that showcases his sorrow-filled voice and stellar guitar playing; and the latest, Ode to Thinking, which applies his varied musical influences to a new collection of compelling songs. The vinyl version called Ode, comprising six tracks from the CD and three previously unreleased tracks, is also now available from Compass Records. Long has also published a volume of poetry—Losing My Brotherhood—with a second collection coming later this year. Show starts at 8:00. Tickets are $12 in advance/$15 the day of the performance.

Will Kimbrough is one of our favorites here, whether performing on his own or with Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Jimmy Buffett, or Todd Snider. ”Kimbrough’s body of work reflects a lifetime of performing, writing, and collaborating from more angles than Da Vinci’s protractor. True to his search for universal truths, his profound musical knowledge and expert creations reflect years of learning the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock’n’roll, punk rock and jazz.” Will Kimbrough is hungry. The youthful singer, songwriter, award-winning guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, performer and bandleader has a voracious appetite for every aspect of music. Born and raised in the deep south of the Alabama Gulf Coast, he ingested eclectic FM radio sounds and the music of nearby New Orleans.

Over-throwing the musical and artistic establishment of the United States through underground circulation of music, shows, and cooperation. A revolution of the heart and mind. Justin Payne tours the land bringing with him a troubadour’s soul and a seasoned musician’s skills. Justin Payne spends a lot of time observing, contemplating, writing, singing, and playing with a mission: to undermine contemporary American culture with guerrilla tactics and street-level, face to face performances. None of the tried-and-true methods of exposure and advancement for artists are untainted by corporate cash, and thus cultural cancer. When the game is rigged, and all of the roads to sharing your art and a modicum of social and financial stability are blocked to you because you’re either too smart, or not a size 00, the only answer is to cut your own path, to revolt and burn down what is not working anymore, just like those that came before us in equally desperate times.

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Mark Huff’s new EP Down River is a creative breakthrough for the globe-trotting performer, blending his best songwriting to date with arrangements that perfectly frame the emotional depth of his lyrics and the soulful burn of his vocal performances. The result is a collection with an epic, cinematic sweep that ranges from the urban demimonde to the Gothic South to the back pages of Huff’s own childhood. “These songs represent important parts of my journey, from growing up as a kid captivated by music, experiencing the heartbreak and the happiness that’s all part of becoming an adult, and the musical growth that being in Nashville has inspired in me,” Huff explains. “These songs are real and alive.” Down River was produced by Huff and Mark Robinson (David Olney, Davis Raines) and recorded at Guido’s Studio South and Studio G in Nashville, with additional engineering by Drake Wise and Grammy Award-winner Chad Brown, who also mixed the...

Following a string of acoustic solo albums, longtime Dillon Fence and Hobex frontman Greg Humphreys returns to the bandstand. Humphreys’ new Electric Trio features bassist Matt Brandau and drummer Keith Robinson. The Brooklyn-via-NC artist says “it feels great to be playing electric guitar again. I’m using all the tools in the shed with this combo.” Following a summer recording session with Stax soul legend William Bell, Humphreys reconvenes the Electric Trio for an East Coast tour supporting two new releases – the Cosmic Irony EP and the Rock at Live Wood LP. “Rock at Live Woodshowcases Humphreys and his band in concert… songs such as “More Than a Friend” and “Sayin’ What You Mean” demonstrate a decided preference for affecting melodies that find a perfect balance with the band’s ability to show off their ample chops.” — Lee Zimmerman, No Depression “Cosmic Irony spotlights Humphreys and company in a studio setting,...

Fun, honest and sometimes shocking, Jess Labus sings it like it is. Folk pop with substance sung by a sweet and smokey sounding song bird that you can’t take your eyes off of.  Born in Hollywood, Florida and raised in Western New York, Jess began writing music at the age of 14, sighting the Temptations and Janis Joplin as childhood muses. At age 18 Jess moved to NYC to attend AMDA, majoring in musical theater but after an acting role as a funeral home attendant left her contemplating life and death Jess began to perform in the NYC bar and club scene at venues such as the Bitter End, Rockwood and the Living Room. In 2009 Jess released her first album, Mirrors and since 2010 she has been a featured and background vocalist touring with the Zak Smith Band while steadily playing as a solo act on the east coast. When you listen to Jess play her self written, self composed, completely original music, it shouldn’t surprise you that she touts Jewel and Alanis Morrisette as her...
