Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music By The Rightly So from Buffalo, NY

the_rightly_so.jpg

Born in the heart of the Buffalo rust belt, The Rightly So brings a vibrant energy to Americana music. The young acoustic duo is comprised of esteemed guitarist and performer Gregory Zeis, and award-winning singer/songwriter Jess Chizuk. Both have achieved a great deal of musical success on their own, and have now formally combined their talents to create a unstoppable force of captivating original music. 

Both Jess and Greg have been performing musicians since their early teens. Combined, they have nearly 20 years of performing experience while still in their early 20's themselves. Greg has fronted a number of prominent WNY bands to a great deal of success, his engaging stage presence, soulful vocals, expert guitar playing, and enthralling original music drawing crowds across the region. Jess has developed a unique and memorable songwriting style that has earned her a number of accolades and nationwide recognition, paired with her powerful, graceful vocals and intricate rhythm guitar work. Together, their performances have the best of both worlds; vibrant energy and chemistry without losing any musical integrity. It's relatable acoustic music carried by perfectly blended harmonies that can only come from voices that were made to perform together. 

Their self-titled debut album is available in July of 2017, combining new renditions of old songs from past projects, and plenty of brand new collaboration pieces that make it evident that The Rightly So is at their best when they are together.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music By Rush Morgan from Greenville, SC

rush_morgan_2.jpg

Rush Morgan is an old soul at heart and a working man by trade. Getting his start in 2009 playing coffee shops in his hometown of Clemson, SC he's graduated to being a national touring artist and a locally renowned talent. Opening for acts like Taylor John Williams, Peter Bradley Adams, Smokey Brights, Calliope Musicals, and much more. With the release of his EP "River Stone" in 2017 he's begun to shake the roots of folk and soul. Morgan cut his teeth on the poetic lyricism of artists old and new such as Jackson Browne, Neil Young, and Mandolin Orange. They seem to have "spun a hushed, intimate series of songs into indelible melodies that moves from wistful folk-pop to warm, understated soul with the skill of a true musical omnivore."  As an accomplished guitar player his hands never work alone. With influences from the languid guitar playing of John Mayer, B. B. King, and Stevie Ray Vaughn he's managed to obtain roots not only in old folk but old blues as well. He spent a year of his life living in Nashville cultivating and harvesting his songwriting chops as well as studying audio engineering and music business at Dark Horse Institute, forming the sharp point of the life he wants to live in music.

Live Music by Pentley Holmes

7-10PM

New Jersey native, Pentley Holmes is truly that rare artist whose work achieves both technical and emotional brilliance. A self taught guitarist and vocalist, Pentley is as well-rounded musically as they come. Pentley’s background in creative writing allows him to unite his musical talent with an authentic expression of what it means to be alive. Not only the nephew of the inspirational heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes, Pentley is a fighter in his own right.

In 2009 he survived a typically lethal ruptured brain aneurysm. His survival and recovery after 15 days in ICU only furthered his inborn passion for life and his place in the world as a musician. Pentley’s debut album “Rip Out My Heart,” offers a beautifully rendered glimpse into the depths of these human experiences. Pentley’s signature blend of contemporary folk and soul pop make his music as easy on the ear as it is on the heart. With new music forthcoming and the daring boldness to dream, Pentley is undoubtedly one to watch.

"Former heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes pummeled Muhammad Ali to submission. His nephew, Pentley Holmes, merely wants to knock audiences over one song at a time. Experience the younger Holmes’ haymakers as the multi-instrumentalist manages multiple ways of routing to one’s inner core. Holmes sings passionately. He plays the guitar brilliantly. Applied into a soup of contemporary blues and rock, jazz and pop, tunes including “Shape Up & Rip Out My Heart” belie convention. They resonate flavors concocted with points to say and purpose to move. Holmes moves like the dawn of a new day. He’s a welcome sound. "

Live Music by Brooks Dixon

7-10 PM

Brooks Dixon began performing his original music as a student at Clemson University first taking the stage in 2012 at Moe Joe's Coffee Company. As momentum began to mount, Dixon began to take his music more seriously, leading to his first EP, the independently released "Stone Pile EP" in 2014. 

After the release Brooks returned to his hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, where he quickly gained momentum playing the local bars and coffee shops, drawing comparisons to Folk-Pop icons James Taylor and Ray LaMontange. He began touring regionally, and soon met Greenville Singer-Songwriter Sara Middleton. The two teamed up with other Greenville players to form the group "Brooks Dixon & The Noble Sound". Shortly after, they found themselves performing their unique soulful harmonies for thousands at Downtown Alive. Dixon set out to Nashville to record a second EP "Weather the Storm" in early 2016. In large part, due to the band, Dixon found his songs taking on a fuller more robust Americana tone. 

"Weather the Storm" lead to new heights for Brooks and the band, as they found their way on stage at numerous regional festivals and clubs throughout the Southeast. Shortened in name and members, the "Brooks Dixon Band" found cohesion with a 5 piece group, Dixon on vocals and guitar, Middleton's smooth harmonies and occasional lead vocals, Shane Byler on the Drums, Ross Krieg on the Saxophone, and Bennett Dixon on the bass. The group hit the studio in early 2017 and released their first band single "Good Intentions" a song featuring a more upbeat take on Dixon's songwriting.

The group continues to tour regionally in the southeast, as well as provide music for all occasions. Flexibility has been their calling card, Dixon is comfortable performing solo, as a duo with Middleton, a trio of saxophone, guitar, and drums, as well as with the full band.

Madame Bricolage Prints from Warsaw, Poland

Artist Reception: 6 - 9PM
Exhibition Dates: December 27th - January 27th

A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST Collage is my favourite creative technique. I love to assemble my original art with antique engravings from past centuries. I work with images from antique engravings found in books and magazines dating from medieval times to 1920, combining and altering them.

Among my mentors are many of the great collage masters of Dadaism and Surrealism - art movements whose artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects. Their works feature the element of surprise and unexpected juxtapositions.

I’m drawing inspiration from surreal humour of the Monty Python's Flying Circus and Terry Gilliam's cartoons as well as fantasy worlds populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures of Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland.

At Madame Bricolage Print I upcycle genuine antique dictionaries, often 150 years old. Pages are carefully selected and removed from antique books and have warm golden tone that gives them that special charm and makes perfect background for the images.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by Closest Relative from Columbus, OH

Closest Relative is the brainchild of Columbus musician Jack O'Connell. Jack has been a steady part of the Columbus music scene since 2013, playing guitar with bands like In Silent Movies, Jackie Stabb, and Miranova. 

He had started writing some of his own songs, with the idea to start a solo project and release an EP, when on May 6th, 2015, he was in a motorcycle accident that crushed his left hand, resulting in two amputated fingers. After months of surgeries and rehab, he had returned to the guitar, developing a style that mostly utilizes two fingers. 

He went to work recording his debut EP "Messes". Recorded in the attics and basements of Columbus, Ohio, "Messes" is largely about personal struggles. It's carried by intricate guitar work, progressive structures, and earnest lyrics.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by Lottie and the Lately from Nashville, TN

lottie.png

Over the past year, Nashville’s Lottie has navigated her soul towards the end of a tireless maze. A metaphor aptly in line with her debut EP, Leaving The Labyrinth, Lottie has finally escaped the dark, menacing walls looming over her, and has been greeted by beautiful, breathtaking sunlight and skies.

Where Labyrinth saw Lottie successfully grappling with her inner demons, her forthcoming release tells a story from the perspective of a survivor who has emerged victorious from a battle. A triumphant reckoning emerges from the dead-ends and uncertainty, with imperfections evolving into graces, and fear giving way to courage. 

Growing up, Lottie split her time between both Chapman and Montgomery, Alabama, getting a taste for the city during the week for school, and staying tied to her extended family in the country on weekends and summer months. She credits her mother’s taste in “just good music” for helping shape her songwriting style, and it was a cousin’s guitar style that helped awaken a more upbeat sound. Now in Nashville, her music shimmers with Music City’s signature polish, but continues to twang with the soul of the deeper south. Raised in a familial tradition of strong women, Lottie carries this legacy proudly with tunes that stand tall, while remembering where they learned such poise. 

Lottie’s newest movement is connected by the theme of “place,” like a travel log for her soul, with roots grounded in her southern hometown and upbringing. Lottie’s mother and grandmother are as significant of influences as Alison Krauss and Carol King, and she aims to make her hometown of Chapman proud with this release, especially. Her fans will hear a sound that moves from Labyrinth’s spiritual exploration and exorcism to one carrying the triumph of survival, with an energy that bounces more than it rolls--her prodigal spirit has come home. 

Bolstered by a talented new band who have helped bring her vision to life in unexpected ways, Lottie has written songs that have equal footing in her past and present. For all her influences, authenticity is critical for Lottie’s songwriting, as she writes about real events from her life. It’s a brand new day outside of the Labyrinth, and it’s a beautiful one.

A note from Payne: Music is something I sort of fell into in the last five years. I found myself being overwhelmed and inspired by different people and situations, and feeling the need to tell those stories through song. Since then, it's been all about moving forward, taking the next step, and enjoying what music has to offer. Getting lost in lyrics and melodies is now one of my favorite past times, but performing with friends takes things to a whole new level. I am so fortunate to find myself in an incredible music community. I am blown away by the talent surrounding me.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by The Human Being

Polaroid Cat.jpg

The Human Being is a random guy with a van, a cat, and a computer who wrote an album of lo-fi funk folk blues poems about a buddhist concept called the Ten Worlds. He is documenting a two-month trip along the eastern United States to play his music and figure out what being human really means.

He’s out there on the road like this because somewhere along the line, he noticed the human beings weren’t being human. Something was turning them into aliens, animals, and cartoon characters. It was almost like they’d forgotten how difficult it was to even become human in the first place! So he got this idea that if he made some groovy tunes and got into the places where the people were, he could tell a story that might remind them just how special and how powerful the human being is.

He doesn’t have a Facebook. He just has a face, and you can see that face at the Foxy Loxy Cafe on Tuesday, October 9th at 7:00pm.

Paper Soup: Mixed Media Artwork by Ginger McGee
RECEPTION: 6-9PM
EXHIBITION DATES: October 1st - October 28th

Native Savannahian Ginger McGee is a self-taught mixed media collage artist. Her show “Paper Soup” is a study in juxtaposition. “I love the possibility of collage – the found or forced connection between images, and the use of disjointed words or phrases to further the strange story. Strange is a world I enjoy living in.” Like soup, her artwork is an amalgam of different textures, mediums and images working together. “Paper Soup” is whimsy at its best, and is sure to leave a funny taste in your eyes.

September First Friday: Live Music by Josephine Johnson from Savannah, GA

Album Release Party

7PM-10PM

Growing up in rural Greentown, Indiana, Josephine Johnson dreamed of being a musician like the people she listened to on the radio. From Melissa Etheridge to U2 to Joni Mitchell, Josephine studied the music of her idols as she sang in church and performed in school musicals. In college, she became a ukulele and guitar player and started writing her own music as a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design and while at Humboldt State University in Northern California.

Eventually, Josephine would become the first of her blue-collar family not only to go to college but also to obtain Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.

Now a radio DJ and musician in Savannah, Georgia, Josephine has put the finishing touches on her breakthrough album The Spark. Inspired in part by Maxine Waters, the film Wonder Woman and the occasionally hostile male backlash to it, and her own experiences over the nearly two decades in which she has played guitar and uke, The Spark is a rare artifact: a deeply personal piece of songwriting with universal appeal.

Teeming with gorgeous arrangements by famed San Francisco producer John Vanderslice and keys player/arranger Rob Shelton, the album fills its eight tracks with country and soul textures which work as perfect frames for the voice and words of Miss Johnson.

Armed with her Mainland tenor ukulele and a throat of gold, Josephine weaves hooks and plangent decrees through a landscape of warm horns, analog keys and country textures. Her music exhales and moves the listener across a sweet landscape like a twilight breeze in God’s own country.

She has many songs in her books and many more to come.

Sit down. Have a listen.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by Marleaux Jones from Savannah, GA

marlow_seavers.jpg

Born in Memphis, TN on November 30, 1989, singer/songwriter Marleaux Jones (born Marlow Christopher Seavers) has been involved with music since childhood. Even though he had not started out singing in his church choir, Jones was heavily involved in school talent shows and his high school's concert and show choir. Drawing both vocal and musical inspiration from classic R&B acts, such as Donny Hathaway, Dru Hill, and Donell Jones, Jones worked immensely to perfect his craft and vocal skills. Unable to obtain financial support for his college eduaction, Jones enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2008, where he served 3 years as a Food Service Specialist (cook). As both a soldier serving his country and an unknown singer, Jones continued to work towards being discovered. While deployed in Joint Base Balad, Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom/Enduring Freedom (2010-2011), Jones was fortunate enough to meet R&B singer, Tank, and the famed R&B girl group, En Vogue, during their overseas concerts for the troops. Furthermore, he received the rare chance to come onstage with En Vogue and sing to them, resulting in a massive applause. While in Iraq, he began writing recording both covers and original songs in a fellow soldier and friend's room, which had been turned into a makeshift studio. Although Jones had written his own material before, this particular setting allowed him to hone his skills as a songwriter by writing for other aspiring singers and rappers that came into the studio. When he got out of the military in 2011, he continued to write and record music. Jones got the chance to perform one of his original songs at the South Carolina Music Awards' Meet-and-Greet. Currently pursing a business degree, Jones is the newly-joined member of the band Infallible Funk.
