Jeff Brown (Chicago, IL)
Jul

6:30 PM18:30

Jeff Brown (Chicago, IL)

Jeff Brown grew up with his ears fixed on the musical intricacies of Iron Maiden records, but has chosen to explore a softer side of music. These days, he creates songs rooted in the gentle musings of contemplative trailblazers like Carole King and James Taylor with modern touches similar to Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, and Iron & Wine.

His shows and music run the range from delicate indie-folk to more aggressive alt-rock with forays into jazz and chamber pop. Brown has managed to settle in and firmly find himself in the Americana/Indie-folk soundscape with his upcoming album “1000 Ways.” Titled and centered around the quote by Rumi that says, “when you are at your most lost, there are always at least a thousand ways to go home again.”, the album is a truly a collection of songs and stories about struggling to find purpose — to find belonging — to find home.

Columbia Jones (Salt Lake City, UT)

7:00 PM19:00

Columbia Jones (Salt Lake City, UT)

Columbia Jones has spent the better part of the last three years traveling the country, cutting his teeth as a blues-fueled one-man band – a path that has helped Columbia develop the dynamic range of country, rock, and folk influences showcased throughout his first full-length studio album, I’m a Terrible Human Being.

While musically the album blends genres throughout, lyrically many of the tracks serve to support the thesis statement presented by the album’s title.  Columbia relates the particulars of making a living as a full-time traveling musician against the contrasting backdrop of “grownup” expectations and the accompanying “real world” measurements of success as either a tongue-in-cheek expression, or a pious confession.

He is recognized for his collaborative performances that reflect “spontaneous conversations in music.”

“His playing is bluesy, with a very light touch, nice pulse but with an approach that goes a little against the grain, sometimes angular, sometimes hesitant or cautious on purpose, as if the notes themselves are living beings wondering what to do next. Nice album!” – Stef Gjissels, www.freejazzblog.org
