Henry Wolfe - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Henry Wolfe
Los Angeles songwriter Henry Wolfe lives in the past. His assuredly understated debut LP "Linda Vista" looks back to pop music of bygone days for inspiration, from Tin Pan Alley to the 1970s heyday of the singer-songwriter. Produced by Nico Aglietti and Aaron Older (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes) the album was mostly recorded in live takes with Wolfe and his backing band playing together in the studio. The result is a loose dressed-down affair, a mash-up of Chet Baker and Neil Young that My Old Kentucky Blog calls "...the perfect confection of Broadway sass and breezy California folk." Released in 2011, Linda Vista has garnered enthusiastic reviews from Rolling Stone (3.5 stars), American Songwriter and Nylon, among others, and led Wolfe to tour extensively across the US for the first time. Recently a track from the record called "Someone Else" was featured in the ATO Pictures film "Terri, starring John C. Reilly.
Ferraby Lionheart - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Ferraby Lionheart
"He sings of virtue and of lying and he sings of the fine line between the two different ways to go about it. He speaks of the heart as if it is dedicated to going down the most difficult pathways and valleys it could ever forge and it's a character willing to play the role of the jester, just to spice up the life of the body that surrounds and encases it - unable to rewire it. Even with this said, in Lionheart's songs, the hearts are those who don't stand any chance. The men and the women that they're embedded within are going to find a way to still be moved, to still work around the obstacles of love." – DAYTROTTER
