SUPER DOPPLER
Sep 10 @ 9:00 pm
Retro Psych-Country Rock n Roll band from Norfolk, VA
The five members of Super Doppler have been playing music together in some shape or form for almost a decade now and show few signs of slowing down. Super Doppler plays music largely inspired by an appreciation of the great records of the 1960’s and 70’s, while still drawing from an eclectic mix of contemporary influences. Originally from Norfolk, Virginia, Super Doppler has been touring the country extensively since the release of their debut album ‘Moonlight Anthems’ in 2017, produced by Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records. In late 2017, the band recorded the six tracks of what would become ‘The Super Secret Singles Club’, releasing each single monthly throughout the first half of 2018. In 2019, Super Doppler again emerged from the studio, releasing “You Bring Me Down” , the debut single from their forthcoming full-length album due out in June 2019.

Anteloper, Blacks’ Myths
Sep 11 @ 7:30 pm
The Evening Muse Presents: Anteloper, Blacks’ Myths

ANTELOPER is the electric brain child of JAIMIE BRANCH (fly or die, high life) and JASON NAZARY (little women, helado negro, bear in heaven). Branch and Nazary have been playing together as trumpeter and drummer for years, since meeting at the New England Conservatory of Music in 2002, but in this duo both musicians include synthesizers to push further into the spectral space ship ether. With deep rhythmic passages, telepathic improvisations and effortless melodic negotiations, Anteloper pushes forward, swinging its horns all the while.

*********

 

Blacks’ Myths

Blacks’ Myths is a duo from Washington, DC comprised of Luke Stewart on bass and Warren G. ‘Trae’ Crudup III on drums. Two of DC’s most active and versatile musicians, Stewart and Crudup build symbiotic rhythmic pieces by locking into something both hypnotic and free. Their collaboration is redefining the rhythm section by dismantling its tropes and injecting unpredictability as well as a sense of vibrancy and freedom. The group’s debut, Blacks’ Myths (Atlantic Rhythms, 2018), established a space for ambience and eruption, building hypnotic rhythmic structures and exploratory soundscapes.

 

‘On Black Myths, Stewart and Crudup craft evocative, Afro-futuristic grooves, frequently disrupted by eruptions of feedback dissonance or languid soundscapes.’ — Down Beat Magazine

NEAL FRANCIS
Sep 11 @ 8:00 pm

NEAL FRANCIS

“I just wanted to be honest about everything, from my musical influences to my story,” muses Neal Francis. After years of dishonest living — consumed by drugs, alcohol, and addiction — such sincerity is jarring from the 30-year-old Chicago-based musician. Liberated from a self-destructive past and born anew in sobriety, Francis has captured an inspired collection of songs steeped in New Orleans rhythms, Chicago blues, and early 70s rock n’ roll. His music evokes a bygone era of R&B’s heyday while simultaneously forging a new path on the musical landscape. Ohio-based Karma Chief Records (a subsidiary of rising soul label Colemine Records) released two songs, “These Are The Days” and “Changes, Pt. 1,” in early 2019 and will follow with the full LP Changes on September 20, 2019.

There is a deep connection between Francis’s childhood — his obsession with boogie woogie piano, his father’s gift of a dusty Dr. John LP — and the songs he’s created. The result is an astonishing collection of material without parallel in the contemporary funk and soul scene. The influences are unmistakable: the vocal stylings of Allen Toussaint and Leon Russell; the second line rhythms of The Meters and Dr. John; the barroom rock ‘n’ roll of The Rolling Stones; the gospel soul of Billy Preston; the roots music of The Band. Francis pays tribute to the masters but has his own story to tell: “It’s the life I’ve lived so far.”

And what a life it’s been. Born Neal Francis O’Hara, the piano prodigy found himself touring Europe by the age of 18 with Muddy Waters’ son and backing up other prominent blues artists coast-to-coast. In 2012, Francis joined popular instrumental funk band The Heard. With Francis at the creative helm, The Heard transformed into a national act, touring with boogaloo progenitors The New Mastersounds and chart toppers The Revivalists and appearing at Jazz Fest and Bear Creek. As The Heard’s star rose, however, Francis sunk deeper into addiction. Once a promising sideman, by 2015 he had been fired from his band, evicted from his apartment, and was perilously close to self-destruction. “When you get close to death like that you can feel it,” Francis recalls. An alcohol-induced seizure that year led to a broken femur, dislocated arm, and, finally, the realization that he needed to get clean.

The journey from a hospital bed to launching his solo career was neither predictable nor straightforward. There were musical fits and starts, relapses, and broken relationships. Yet the overwhelming passion driving Francis in this second act has been an abundance of creative energy. “Drinking held my music in a half-cocked slingshot. I was always so consumed by drugs and alcohol that I didn’t have the time, money, or creative energy to do it. Sobriety let it loose.”

Determined to realize the songs swirling in his head, Francis assembled a crack team of musicians, calling on bassist Mike Starr (The Heard) and drummer PJ Howard (The Revivalists, The Heard). He linked up with producer and analog-obsessive Sergio Rios (Orgone, Cee Lo Green, Alicia Keys) and self-funded a trip to Killion Sound in Los Angeles to record the initial batch of material. “I learned to trust my instincts in that room,” says Francis. Buoyed by classic horn arrangements and Rios’ fierce guitar work, the resulting tracks illuminate a lifetime spent studying the masters of rock and soul music.

From the RMI electra-piano riff that kicks off “She’s A Winner” to the screaming organ swells of “This Time,” Francis and company let it all hang out. This is fun music, dance music. Yet verse after verse and chorus after chorus, Francis wrestles with his past in a straightforward manner: “It’s 5 o’clock in the morning, but I’m not home/ I’m surrounded by people, but I’m really alone.” Like Toussaint and Russell before him he’s married the upbeat rhythms of New Orleans R&B with the lyrical approach of a confessional singer/songwriter. The refrain on “This Time” serves as a foxhole prayer for a better future: “Let me get it this time/I won’t let you down/Let me get it this time/I won’t fool around.”

Francis finished recording basic tracks for Changes in Los Angeles in February of 2018 and spent the following months doing overdubs in Chicago with engineer Mike Novak (who also recorded demos for the project). Soon after he was eager to begin his touring career. After signing with Paradigm Talent Agency, Neal played shows across North America supporting Australian band The Cat Empire. He has received praise on several notable radio outlets including KEXP, KCRW’s The Morning Becomes Eclectic, and BBC Radio 6. Francis and his four-piece band recently performed during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, sharing the stage with The Meters and other legends. This summer he performed at Summer Camp and Chicago’s Chi-Soul Festival, and hit the road with Lee Fields & The Expressions, Dumpstaphunk and others. Francis pledges to tour relentlessly to promote his own music. “I’m doing this to fulfill a drive within myself, but also to pay tribute to the gifts I’ve been given. And it comes from a place of immense gratitude.’

BECCA MANCARI with Frances Cone
Sep 11 @ 9:00 pm

Becca Mancari

Becca Mancari is a traveler. She’s lived everywhere — Staten Island, Florida, Zimbabwe, Virginia, India, Pennsylvania — and she’s collected plenty of tales along the way, spinning the sounds and stories of the modern world into songs that mix the organic stomp of American roots music with the approach and attitude of raw rock & roll. 

This is personal music, performed by a storyteller who’s lived and loved. Born in Staten Island to an Italian-Irish preacher and a Puerto Rican mother, Becca spent her childhood moving around the East Coast. It’s no surprise, then, that she found herself drawn to a group of train hoppers in central Virginia, where she relocated as a teenager to attend college. Surrounded by fellow travelers, Becca began to make music — not the kind of music she made during her earlier years, when she sang in her father’s church — but music for front porches, for bonfires, for slow dances and road trips, and train rides and new romances. The sound was inspired by everything from Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited to Neil Young’sHarvest Moon, not to mention the Appalachian folk music that her Virginia friends played. It was bold and broad, and it sounded like Becca Mancari. 

After college, Becca continued her travels, eventually winding up in the musical hotbed of Nashville, Tennessee. There, she continues writing songs that blur the lines between genres, sharing shows with artists like Hurray For The Riff Raff and Natalie Prass along the way. She jumps from the acoustic desert-rock of ‘Golden’ to the ramshackle root sounds of ‘Summertime Mama,’ showing off the full range of her music. Produced by Adam Landry and Justin Collins (Deer Tick, Middle Brother, Diamond Rugs, Lilly Hiatt) and recorded with members of her touring band, the music is a snapshot from a musician who’s still on the move, constantly writing songs about the people she’s met and the impression they leave.The recordings aren’t perfect, and Becca likes that. Because life isn’t perfect. 

‘Things that are perfect tend to sound flatlined,’ she explains. ‘There’s no ‘human’ there. I like to hear the person when I listen to songs. And I hope people can hear me.”

 

Frances Cone

Frances Cone is a Nashville based soulful indie band. For someone with deep familial roots in opera and classical music, founder Christina Cone seems preternaturally capable of writing songs focused on capturing the insane, unthinking fireworks of the human heart. Anxiety. Heartbreak. Transcendent love. The secrets of a diary so sacred and precious it only exists internally, every word an eyes-shut-tight whisper. To create music like that, such as on their forthcoming album ‘Late Riser’, takes actual, emotional bravery. It takes a level of empathy and love that stays locked and unavailable in most people. Luckily, Christina and her multi-instrumentalist musical and life partner Andrew Doherty found each other in Brooklyn NY a few years ago and all the locks failed. They started creating what would become ‘Late Riser’. Between them there was just enough courage to jump.

They landed in Nashville, TN and immediately found a home in the city’s thriving alternative scene. There were challenges and successes and but all along the songs kept coming. Music lovers at Noisey, Billboard, and Stereogum began to take notice. NPR invited the band to perform at their Tiny Desk concert series and they garnered more than 12 million streams on Spotify. The record is a testament to what modern pop music is capable of when imbued with honesty and emotion so palpable you can taste it in your mouth. It is pure feeling: watching a fireworks display through happy tears.

Matt Walsh
Sep 12 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Matt Walsh is a vocalist, guitarist and prolific songwriter from Statesville NC who performs 200 plus shows a year either solo or with his rhythm section, ‘The Movers’. His album ‘Life After Rock N Roll’ (2017 Full Bloom Records) has been hailed by music publications and played on radio stations in the US, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Australia and his new release, ‘The Midnight Strain’ (2018 Full Bloom Records) is quickly catching up to that status since it’s release on November 10th. Matt’s sound is a clever blend of numerous styles of the music that have influenced him since his youth – early electric and country Blues, Rock N Roll, Rockabilly, Soul, R&B, Country, Bluegrass, Jazz and Psychedelia. His focus on making all original music by combining the influences that inspired him, along with his own ideas, have produced an exciting blend of many genres without rules or limitations. 

His exposure to music came first came from his mother through her love of Motown. When Matt was 9 years old, she took him to a Prince concert and afterwards, he knew he wanted to be a musician. His musical education began with his late uncle who turned him onto a record collection that included early 1950’s electric Blues and 1960’s Rock which inspired Matt to play guitar. When he was 13, Matt got a knock off electric guitar for $25 at a flea market and set out to learn the instrument. He furthered his musical education when he began absorbing the music on old record labels, notably Chess, Sun and Stax . 

Less than a decade later, he began performing in clubs and in the years to follow, he established himself as a highly regarded musician in the Blues world with his first release, ‘Hard Luck’ (2007), as one of the few artists in the genre capable of writing relevant original material without relying on any cover songs from the past. The album got rave reviews in multiple music publications, radio play on stations around the world and a featured spot on XM 74 Satellite Radio as a ‘Pick to Click’. Around this time Matt joined Bob Margolin (guitarist for Muddy Waters 1973-1980) and performed with some of his heroes, legendary artists like Howlin’ Wolf’s guitarist Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins and Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith. 

While he was looking for a new direction to expand his music, Matt started working with drummer Austin Hicks after they met on Craigslist in 2013. They formed the drum-guitar duo, the Low Counts and branded themselves as, ‘Blue Collar Rock-N-Roll’. They turned heads, made dedicated fans and blew audiences away with their no frills, high energy stage show. Their ride was cut short on March 8th 2017 when Austin passed away unexpectedly. Matt wrote 27 songs that the duo released over three albums in the four short years they were together (The Low Counts 2014, Unsettled Days 2015, Years Pass BY 2015)

Matt released his first solo album in almost a decade, ‘Life After Rock N Roll’ on Full Bloom Records November 17th 2017. The album reignited his standing as a solo artist and found him stretching out to make powerful, refined music that was entirely different than any of his previous works. Matt just released his third full length studio album, ‘The Midnight Strain’, on Full Bloom Records on November 10th 2018 and it has received rave reviews and a wealth of radio play. He is currently working on another album that he recorded recently at Columbia Records Studio A on Music Row in Nashville TN which he plans to release in 2019.

The Commonheart
Sep 12 @ 7:30 pm
The Evening Muse Presents: The Commonheart

“This band is therapy for me to bring myself back to being a better person, and I hope people come along with me,” says powerhouse singer Clinton Clegg of The Commonheart. The testimonial begins on August 16th when the 9-piece band issues its most potent and purposeful dose of grittily redemptive rock n’ soul, its sophomore album, ‘Pressure’ (Jullian Records).

 

Clinton didn’t grow up in a Baptist church, and his soul machine of a band isn’t pushing religion. Live and in the studio, the Pittsburgh-based collective is offering feel-good positivity, Golden Rule messaging, and sweat-soaked performances that nimbly ease through blues, vintage soul, and rock.

 

The nonet is bonded by familial-like ties and a desire to foster spiritual uplift. Among its ranks are female backup singers, drums, bass, guitar, a horn section, and keyboards. Out front is Clinton, a lightning bolt charismatic front man with dynamically expressive pipes that effortlessly traverse bluesy pleading, and honeyed balladeering.

 

The Commonheart’s latest album, ‘Pressure,’ is both rugged and refined. The 10-song album showcases raw-nerve soul musicianship pristinely recorded. It’s an album by a band on a mission. “We are willing to take risks and to go at any lengths for this band,” Clinton says affirmatively. “We are ready to spread positivity and make a stretch of this thing.”

BIG DADDY LOVE
Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Big Daddy Love is a five-piece band with a unique and natural blend of rock, roots and grass that they call ‘Appalachian Rock’. Above the mix, the lead vocals and acoustic guitar accompaniment of their principal songwriter, Scott Moss, command the listener’s attention and call for the harmonies that arise in response. Twin leads of Stratocaster riffs and soaring Allman-esque slide guitar on the one hand, and 5-string Scruggs / Fleck style banjo on the other– like a typical Southern rock line-up, just replacing the second guitar with the banjo– punctuate and emphasize what Moss delivers. These contrasting voices are anchored by a rhythm section that is equally at home in a groove or driving the bus with country, swing, funk or straight ahead rock. Big Daddy Love’s high-energy performances, fueled by this combination of fiery vocals, striking instrumental dynamics that range from bombastic assaults to soothing grooves, have garnered them a strong, passionate following throughout their home region.

Kelsey Ryan Album Release

Hailing from Texas and Tennessee, Kelsey Ryan grew up listening to country music ranging old school honky tonk to outlaw country to sweet, sad love songs and singing along to them all. Always a lover of a good story, country music drew her in with its depictions of real people living through real life. In this vein, Kelsey’s debut record The Trigger doesn’t hold back with a mix of songs ranging from heart-wrenching to no-holds-barred sass, showing the portrait of a woman scarred but standing.

David Taylor has nothing to do with the fact that he has a band; he just got lucky one night. Having been a solo singer/song-writer for several years in the Charlotte music scene, David has built up quite the catalog of songs. He has performed throughout the Charlotte area, and he self-released a solo EP titled Texas Heat in July 2018.

David Taylor & The Tallboys were born after several beers and an impromptu jam session on a Monday night with the help of friends Gersh Godwin on bass, and Jason Cline on lead guitar. Wes Hamilton joined the party on pedal steel guitar, and Matt Sloop filled out the lineup on drums. The Tallboys take David’s songs and turn them into twangy rock-n-roll tunes that make you want to dance, stomp your feet, and cry at the same time.

 

Despite only having been a band since early 2019, David Taylor & The Tallboys have already started making waves in the music scene. They have played at local festivals, house parties, and venues such as The Evening Muse, Snug Harbor, and The Pour House.

TIME SAWYER – Album Release w/The Vegabonds
Sep 13 @ 8:00 pm
TIME SAWYER

TIME SAWYER

Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.

Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.

The folk rock band’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the band shares. Time is a muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences and giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.

Time Sawyer has performed on the stages of some of the Southeast’s most iconic festivals, including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Rhythm n’ Blooms, Carolina in the Fall and IBMA’s Bluegrass First Class. They’ve shared bills with Langhorne Slim, Eric Krasno, John Moreland, Steep Canyon Rangers, The Wood Brothers, Susto, and many more.

The memorable lyrics and strong melodies result in songs that will stay in your head long after the music stops. Time Sawyer continues to develop a loyal and growing fan base. Whether they’re playing in an intimate listening room or a large outdoor festival, their goal is to forge a face-to-face connection with the audience so that they become friends who happen to be fans.

The Vegabonds

 

The Vegabonds

The Alabama-born, Tennessee-bred alt-southern rock band – The Vegabonds – kick off 2019 with the release of their fifth album (and first for Blue Élan Records) entitled “V.” The band will support “V” with a full year of non-stop touring throughout North America and Europe.

Produced by Tom Tapley (Blackberry Smoke, Sugarland, Mastodon), “V” audibly illustrates the band’s unconventional yet contagious brand of Southern rock and highlights the best of The Vegabonds’ unique musicianship, vocals, lyrics and sound.

‘V’ crosses boundaries of multiple music genres. These vibrant songs travel from sad to soulful; gritty to glorious. It’s a timeless American album in the sense it deals with eerie matters working people endure and captures their salvation in a song. Songs like “Partyin’ with Strangers”, the new single “I Ain’t Having It” and “When The Smoke Clears Up” proves the group’s ability to move people with a story, beat and melody. 

Vocalist Daniel Allen recently revealed, “I hope fans hear stories in the album. We are in a very unique time in history, and this album touches on the struggle of every day folks doing their best to navigate love, work, beliefs and the ever-changing politics that flood our lives daily.”
The Vegabonds got their start in Alabama in 2009 by playing the college circuit across the Southeastern United States. Their popularity quickly burgeoned to the point where they found their fans singing along word-for-word to their first hits like “Georgia Fire” and “Shaky Hands.” Through pure word of mouth, the group’s fan base rapidly grew, and the guys learned they had something distinctive with their eclectic mix of Southern Rock, Country, and earnest songwriting. Their DIY ethic delivered three full-length albums and an EP before partnering with Blue Élan Records for their current release.

With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds deliver a sensational performance, with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting, night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the late Gregg Allman and delivered rousing performances at festivals like Peach Festival, Sweetwater 420, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest and Taste of Randolph. 

In addition to countless dates throughout the Southeast, the band has toured Europe three times, played multiple dates in Canada and have visited every corner of the US.

A group of five musicians with myriad influences between them, The Vegabonds are fronted by lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Allen, with Richard Forehand (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Bruens (bass), Beau Cooper (keys/vocals), and Bryan Harris (drums) rounding out the quintet.

THE LENNY FEDERAL BAND
Sep 13 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

The Lenny Federal Band Federal, formerly of the … 
wait for it … Federal Bureau of Rock ‘n’ Roll (yes!) 
was, along with his musical (com)patriots, a staple in 
the burgeoning Charlotte rock scene of the ’70s and 
early ’80s. Known for its brand of relatively 
straightforward bluesy originals and for its good taste 
in classic cover tunes, the Federal Bureau always 
resisted making the move to the Allman Brothers-like 
sound so many of their Caucasian compatriots did, 
in favor of keeping it simple. Federal, a cornerstone cog in the Charlotte music scene, hasn’t changed that recipe a whole lot of the years. Forgive the food metaphor, but it’s musical meat and potatoes you’re getting here – meat and potatoes slow-cooked with plenty of care, and with but a soupcon of spice. Appearing at The Comet Grill (Timothy C. Davis) a cornerstone cog in the Charlotte music scene, hasn’t changed that recipe a whole lot of the years.

Young Bull with Moontalkr and Cyanca
Sep 13 @ 10:30 pm
Young Bull with Moontalkr and Cyanca

Young Bull

Started in the halls and locker rooms of Durham, North Carolina’s public arts high school, Young Bull began as an experiment by classmates Tahmique Cameron and Solomon Fox. Helped by Cameron’s soulful vocals and Fox’s savvy keyboard and production skills, they began performing at local talent shows and recording songs in Fox’s bedroom, quickly developing a devoted following of fellow students and friends.

 

With a slew of talented North Carolina jazz and funk instrumentalists behind their energetic live performances, the hip-hop outfit soon gained traction on the Raleigh/Durham music scene, selling out their first major show in the spring of 2015, attracting the attention of local bloggers and bookers alike.

 

2016 ushered in a new era for Young Bull, marked by increasing crowds and notoriety with the release of their debut studio album, Sopadelic, and the addition of Raleigh-based rapper Christian Sinclair to the ranks. Meriting comparisons to Anderson Paak and the Internet, the overwhelming success of Sopadelic helped push Young Bull into the national spotlight. They soon began playing shows up and down the East Coast, gaining grassroots fans from college campuses to local venues. By 2018, they had upped the game again, finding themselves at home on festival main stages while becoming a fixture on editorial playlists across the internet and social media (including Spotify’s “Most Necessary” and “Fresh Finds”). With a new album forthcoming and a rapidly growing fanbase, Young Bull is proving itself one of the most innovative and exciting groups to watch.

 

Moontalkr

Music, in the most beautiful, transcendental way is purely a translation of feeling; a syntax of emotion. In the midst of all the intellectualism, hype, industry and all else that seems to be attached to music this day in age, feeling or vibration is elemental. Moontalkr; a newcomer in a wide array of young, modern artists taking a musically eclectic approach, is finding a new direction. A pop sensibility, a myriad of sonics, texture and compositions that range anywhere among the realms of jazz, psychedelia, funk, disco, rock and R&B Moontalkr is notably characterized by the charisma of vocalist/producer/songwriter, Jeffrey Wilson. With a rich, searing, sympathetic tone reminiscent of Prince and true, poetic penmanship, Wilson is a powerful musical force, primed and ready to put that on full display. His first full length studio offering, Blue Door completed in early February, 2019 and Co-produced by Wilson and heavyweights Rodrick Cliche( D’angelo and The Vanguard, Raphael Saadiq) and Wolfgang Zimmerman( Susto, Band of Horses), is an eclectic spin on pop heavy, psychedelic modern song lore that takes no shortcuts and leaves no musical stone unturned. Catchy, conscious, uplifting lyricism and feel good, dance heavy vibes prime the songs for venues, music halls, festivals and playlist hungry listeners alike. Look out for Blue Door, due out Summer 2019.

Cyanca

A smooth and cheerful aura combined with unique style and therapeutic vocals, Cyanca is gaining momentum with some of music’s best critics such as 2DopeBoyz and Revolt. Her personality and eccentric style capture your attention, but her voice commands it. The honesty in her music stems from personal experiences and Cyanca believes packaging and delivering her heart to listeners will provide them comfort, energy, and a heightened love of self.

Disney’s Aladdin: The Musical
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Aladdin is brought to thrilling theatrical life in this bold new musical that will sweep you into an exotic world full of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance. It’s an unforgettable experience that includes all the cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning score and more written especially for the stage.

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).  

Aladdin, adapted from the Academy Award®-winning animated Disney film and centuries-old folktales including “One Thousand and One Nights,” is brought to fresh theatrical life in this bold new musical.  Aladdin’s journey sweeps audiences into an exotic world of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance.  This new production features a full score, including the five cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and more written especially for the stage.

The animated film Aladdin was released by Disney in 1992 and was a critical and box office smash, grossing over $500 million worldwide (not adjusted for inflation) and becoming the highest-grossing film of the year. 

The film won the Oscar for Best Original Score and introduced the hit song “A Whole New World,” which won the second of the film’s two Academy Awards as Best Original Song.  The Peabo Bryson/Regina Belle recording of the tune soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Aladdin is designed by seven-time Tony-winning scenic designer Bob Crowley, six-time Tony-winning lighting designer Natasha Katz, two-time Tony-winning costume designer Gregg Barnes and sound designer Ken Travis.

The production team also includes illusion designer Jim Steinmeyer, hair designer Josh Marquette and makeup designer Milagros Medina-Cerdeira.  The music team is headed by music supervisor and music director Michael Kosarin, who also created the vocal and incidental music arrangements, joined by orchestrator Danny Troob and dance music arranger Glen Kelly.

Kate Teague, Trouvere
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
The Evening Muse Presents: Kate Teague, Trouvere

There’s something in a great voice that can wake you up to living, that can make distance—the distance between here and then, between memory and lack of faith—seem less terrible. Kate Teague’s got one of those voices. It’s a cathedral of enchantments. A pre-dawn glow.

 

Recorded at Delta-Sonic Sound in Memphis, what’s clearly captured here is a performer with an intransigent spirit. Teague, originally from Mobile, Alabama and currently living in Oxford, Mississippi, sings and plays rhythm guitar, and she’s backed by Kieran Danielson on guitar, Adam Porter on bass, Gabriel Hasty on keys, and Ian Kirkpatrick on drums. The key players in three other bands—Bonus, Starman Jr., and Graham—they bring a floating feeling to Teague’s songs. Clay Jones’s production allows the songs room to breathe; there’s no artifice, no fake sugar glaze.

 

Teague’s songs are honest and frank, and they avoid drama. They’re quiet in a restless way, absorbent, they dream of you while you dream of them. They move movingly. They host a widening brightness. There’s no easy this-sounds-like-that to hand over (though I’d say Teague stuns and shimmers most like Dolores O’Riordan and Hope Sandoval). These songs are starlight. They punch a ticket on the best carnival ride. They’re long shadows in the grass. They generate their own power.

-William Boyle

************

Relocating from upstate New York, Dwight McGlynn (Singer-songwriter), moved to Lynchburg Virginia in 2012 to study Classical Guitar. After playing in several bands, McGlynn formed Trouvére with its original members Jay Bisaga (bass), Riley Ball (drums), and Stevie Mangum (Lead E.G.). In the early stages, the group built their sound by playing numerous house shows and venues around the Lynchburg region. Growing in familiarity, the group became known as a staple band in the Lynchburg music scene. After several months of playing, the group entered the studio to record their freshman EP, St. Luna. The EP gained some traction in the area; getting online streaming as well as radio play on Charlottesville’s WNRN. The group synthesized a dynamic sound that utilizes ambience with intriguing harmonic structure and transparent lyrics.

 

In the fall of 2017, Trouvére relocated to Morganton NC with a rotating outfit of members; Dwight McGlynn still remaining as songwriter and producer of the project. Since, when not teaching public school music, McGlynn has been writing new tunes under Trouvére and has been playing local venues around Western North Carolina. Working with Peter Brownlee, out of Asheville NC, Trouvére is currently recording their second EP, to be released this fall.

Penny and Sparrow with Caroline Spence
Sep 14 @ 8:00 pm

PENNY & SPARROW

“Almost everything changed for us in these last two years,” says Andy Baxter, one half of the acclaimed duo Penny & Sparrow. “It was a painful experience in a lot of ways, but it was also a joyful one.”

Joy and pain walk hand in hand on ‘Finch,’ Penny & Sparrow’s magnificent sixth album. Written during their first major break from the road in years, the record finds the band reckoning with a prolonged period of intense personal transformation, a profound awakening that altered their perceptions of masculinity, sex, religion, divorce, friendship, vanity, purpose, and, perhaps most importantly, self. Deeply vulnerable and boldly cinematic, the resulting songs blur the lines between indie-folk and alt-pop, with dense string arrangements and atmospheric production underpinning soaring melodies and airtight harmonies from Baxter and his longtime musical partner, Kyle Jahnke.

Texas natives, Baxter and Jahnke first crossed paths at UT Austin, where they developed both a fast friendship and a deeply symbiotic musical connection. Jahnke was a gifted guitarist with an ear for melody, Baxter an erudite lyricist with a mesmerizing voice and crystalline falsetto, and the duo quickly found that their vocals blended together as if they’d been singing in harmony their whole lives. Beginning with 2013’s ‘Tenboom,’ the staunchly DIY pair released a series of critically lauded records that garnered comparisons to the hushed intimacy of Iron & Wine and the adventurous beauty of James Blake, building up a devoted fanbase along the way through relentless touring and word-of-mouth buzz. NPR praised the band’s songwriting as a “delicate dance between heartache and resolve,” while The World Café raved that they’ve “steadily built a sound as attentive to detail as Simon & Garfunkel and as open to the present day as Bon Iver,” and Rolling Stone hailed their catalog as “folk music for Sunday mornings, quiet evenings, and all the fragile moments in between.” In addition to the mountain of glowing reviews, the band also earned high profile fans—including The Civil Wars’ John Paul White, who produced 2015’s ‘Let A Lover Drown You’—and extensive tour dates with everyone from Josh Ritter and Johnnyswim to Drew Holcomb and Delta Rae.

CAROLINA SPENCE

‘Her debut for Rounder Records, Mint Condition follows Spades and Roses—a 2017 release praised by American Songwriter as “an album of stunning beauty and lasting impact.” In bringing Mint Condition to life, Spence worked with producer Dan Knobler (Lake Street Dive, Erin Rae) and recorded at his Nashville studio Goosehead Palace, landing a guest appearance from Emmylou Harris and enlisting musicians from Spence’s previous projects and live band. “It’s wonderful to step into a room full of people who already know me,” says Spence. “They have this unspoken understanding of my instincts, so it made the whole process really comfortable and collaborative.”

 
VEAUX with Reptile Room
Sep 14 @ 10:30 pm
Welcome back to The Evening Muse…VEAUX and Reptile Room

Nashville’s newest alt/pop trio, VEAUX, consists of brothers Aaron and Dominick Wagner and long-time friend Andrew Black.

After playing music together off and on for years, the band finally took shape late one night in a hotel bar over a round of gin and tonics.

 

Their newest single, “If You Could Feel My Love,’ embodies the frustration of constantly being on the wrong page with someone you’re trying to reconcile with. When words fail you and your only hope is that your actions speak louder.

 

The name VEAUX (pronounced “vō”), a colloquial French term for “commoner,” is a nod to the humble origins of the members and their desire to always stay true to who they are. Aaron Wagner has this to say on the subject: “When we look back on our lives as old men, I want to be able to say that we were true to ourselves. We spent years being paralyzed by fear and perfectionism, and we are finally in a place as a band and as a family to create honest art and let the chips fall where they may.”

 

The band is currently in the studio writing songs and booking shows across the country.

**************

Reptile Room is an electro-pop trio formed in Atlanta in 2017 by Bill Zimmerman and brother and sister Sean and Sami Michelsen. The three members do all creative work collectively, be it writing, recording and mixing, or editing photos, videos and designing art. They’ve worked with MTV, E! and Red Bull, released a self-titled EP listed as one of Creative Loafing’s “25 Atlanta Summer Jams” and have been nominated for an Atlanta Culture Award presented by Live Nation.

 

As of Late Reptile Room is excited about the news that they’ve signed with San Francisco indie Om Records as they just release their debut album ‘Jade’ this month as they continue to make a name for themselves around the Southeast. Musically, Reptile Room aims to add wild & adventurous elements into the ‘box’ of Electro-Pop music while still providing psychedelic visuals, intoxicating music, and powerful performances. Everything from the art to the production is a twist on the ordinary. Creative Loafing describes their music as “wet reverb-y soundscapes, stuttering beats, sultry sensibility, and deep bass.”

Lazer Lloyd
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm
Lazer Lloyd is a powerful and unique blend of roots rock, Americana, folk, country and blues.

Lazer Lloyd on his music and influences…

“As a young songwriter and guitar player, I loved Neil Young with his super sensitive acoustic and singing just suddenly firing it up with searing guitar. I first heard Stevie Ray Vaughn live at 14 and my father also took me to hear Santana live – those were life-changing experiences – seeing masters who performed on a level of prayer through music on stage. That set my mind and heart on playing music for life.”

 

Quotes:

“Lazer Lloyd is a remarkable performer but even more, he has a magical charisma and aura on stage that is both wonderful and unique. He lit up our crowd at the Mammoth Festival with great songs, incendiary guitar, an amazing presence and message.” Jim Vanko , Co-Producer 23rd Annual Festival at Mammoth Lakes

 

“Fasten your seatbelts!” wrote 1970s Rolling Stone rock music sage Gary von Tersch of the self-titled ‘Lazer Lloyd’ CD. He added, “I’m impressed by Lazer’s tight compositions”, “deeply expressive writing, plangent vocals and crackerjack guitar and harmonica”.

 

“Razor sharp guitar and exuberant vocals.” Downbeat
