Over het evenement

 Every wednesday: Southern Nights. High quality American Roots music in our upstairs room. This week Erin Rae, support Merel Sophie.

Gifted with a unique ability to fuse musical genres and influences to craft songs that feel fresh and wholly her own, with her new album Putting On Airs (2018, Single Lock Records), Erin Rae has thrown down a direct challenge to the stereotype of what a Southern singer should be. Both lyrically and  sonically, she strikes a fiercely independent chord, proudly releasing a deeply personal record that reflects her own upbringing in Tennessee, including the prejudices and injustices that she witnessed as a child that continue to impact her life to this day. According to Rae, "this album was born out of a need to do some healing work in my personal life, in order to address some fears and patterns of mine to allow my true feelings to come to the surface."

Recorded in the dead of winter in an old Franciscan monastery on Wisconsin’s Fox River, the isolated environment created the perfect setting for Rae and her bandmates to track these genre - busting songs, using the chapel and other unique spaces within the cavernous building to explore new sonic boundaries, all while continuing to showcase the hypnotic vocals and song- serving restraint that have become her trademark.

Support Merel Sophie: Een innemende persoonlijkheid met een gouden stem en een vanzelfsprekende souplesse. Een bron van kracht en warmte, dat is Merel Sophie op het podium. Ze brengt haar persoonlijk samengestelde mix van Americana, Roots en Jazz. Klinkt als? The Band, Joni Mitchell en Carole King.

“Langzaam dansend van jazz naar soul en toefjes Americana is Merel Sophie een zangeres die gevoel en behaaglijkheid hoog op de agenda heeft staan.” (lluid)
