photoWash the canvas all in gold, as the floor of heaven
To bleed through every color overlaid
So shines a good deed in a naughty world
How far that little candle throws his beams!

Please, Mister, please don’t throw me into that briar patch
Lord knows I might never find my way back

I don’t believe in heroes, greater glory dims the less
Secrets have a way of corroding their containers

So you stole fire from the gods, this precious gift
Some use for right and some for wrong

You can use the master’s tools to unmake the master’s house
But where will you run when the final judgment comes?

O Sinnerman, where you gonna run to?

Winter Warmer | Trio of Songbirds at the Outer Space January 10th!

Suzie+Brown

Suzie Brown | If Suzie Brown had an anthem, it’d have to be the twangy “Heartstrings,” off her same-named debut. A string-soaked ode to unrequited love, the debut single delicately marked her transition

from Harvard-educated cardiologist to singer-songwriter, now musing on matters of the heart. In the three years since making good on her extracurricular activity, she’s been named the Best of Philly (by Philadelphia magazine) and opened for such kindred spirits as Lyle Lovett. And if her name doesn’t ring a bell, her first single will: Picked up by the Play Network, “Heartstrings” can currently be heard soulfully wafting through stores nationwide. www.suziebrownsongs.com

Jenee Halstead | Jenee Halstead grew up in the high desert of Spokane, Washington, the daughter of hippie parents who let her find her own direction. She spent her childhood exploring her mother’s garden and singing along to records with her Dad. In middle school, she transformed into the rarest ofbirds; an athletic choir geek who sang medieval choral works, but loved Led Zeppelin and Dolly Parton. She wrote quietly on her own for years, moving from place to place – Spokane to Seattle to nowhere Alaska, before moving to Boston in 2007. She collected all of her songs into what would become The River Grace. Her newest album, Raised By Wolves, reclaims the careless freedom of her childhood with a sense of wonder that is unique and fiercely engaging.     http://jeneehalstead.com/

And of course, Daphne Lee Martin‘s new record Moxie, to be released in January, takes Daphne’s beloved traditional southern roots sounds and runs them through megaphones, mellotron, a very old tube amp, a swamp and a dark alley or two. As always, the lyrics are fermented and distilled in a bathtub full of misfit Interbellum prose. This show will be the acoustic shakedown of her new band with members of M.T. Bearington, Fake Babies, Milksop:Unsung, and Sugarbat.      www.daphneleemartin.com
